Frequently Asked Questions about
MartNet Virtual Hosting
Is the 2 GB of data transfer
per month divided up on a daily basis? My current ISP limits
data transfer to 10MB per day, so if there is a spike in traffic
my site will be shut down by afternoon. How do you handle excessive
Our Bandwidth Monitoring /
Usage Charges are based on monthly usage, tabulated overnight
on the first of each month. We don't throttle or shut off your
site - we charge for the additional bandwidth and just add it
to your next bill.
Do you provide SMTP and POP server access
for virtually hosted domains?
We provide POP service and, if you are
not dialing up using a MartNet dial up account, SMTP service is available through
POP before SMTP. You also have access to SMTP through dial-up,
Web Mail, and direct access to the mail server
via any Web Development installed on our server, ie: perl, php,
etc. So we provide a lot of options.
My current ISP aliases names on POP mailboxes.
If I name a mailbox "firstname.lastname@example.org" it is actually
an alias to "email@example.com". So things get screwy
if I try to send mail from a web based form. Do you use the same
type of aliasing?
We can and do upon request
(which might be necessary if the user name "me" is
taken...) With shared hosting, we can't duplicate logon (user)
names on the same system. With our Managed Hosting, you get your
own system, so user name conflicts aren't a problem...
run cron jobs on scripts?
Yes. We fully support cron.
scripts be run from outside a cgi-bin directory or is it a strict
policy to keep them in the cgi-bin directory?
No. CGI's on our shared hosting
servers must be run through our CGI wrapper, which mat require
editing the URLS that call your scripts if you're migrating a
site over. A simple search-and-replace should be all you need
to do to migrate though...
Are you about to be bought out by (insert
BIG ISP Name here) anytime soon?
No way! We've been in business
since 1996, are a private company, and have no intention of selling
out any time soon! And now that the dot-com bubble has burst,
no one wants to buy ISP's anyway... :)
With domains kept under your domain name
parking service, can I still receive email sent to that domain?
No. E-Mail service/forwarding
is part of any hosting package. Parking only includes a "coming
I have been reading online about Verizon's new
email policy: "Verizon e-mail servers will not deliver any
mail originated by Verizon customers unless they have an e-mail
address that ends in verizon.net, bellatlantic.net, or a ''domain
name'' corresponding to a World Wide Web domain hosted by Verizon."
I have Verizon DSL. What's up with this? Can I still host my
site with MartNet?
You can still use MartNet
Hosting Services and your Virtually Hosted E-Mail with Verizon
DSL, but some compromises must be made. One workaround to the
Verizon mail "problem" is to set your FROM address
to your Verizon address and the "Reply TO" address
to your preferred e-mail address. Be sure to use Verizon's mail
forwarding service to forward mail sent to your Verizon address
- not all mail clients handle Reply TO addresses properly, so
replies will occasionally get sent to your Verizon address. It's
not a pretty solution, but it works. The only other solution
is to do exactly what Verizon is hoping you will do and sign
up for their Hosting services. Note that while we would love
to open up our Mail servers to Verizon's network, we would also
be opening up the opportunity for Spammers to send their Unsolicited
Mass Mail to untold millions of people around the Net. So to
maintain the security and stability of our Servers, and to do
our part to help protect the Net in general from this kind of
abuse, we don't open up our Mail servers for relaying from anywhere
off MartNet's own Network.
