How do I manage my web
site from where I live"?
Probably the easiest way to
manage your site is to firstly establish
a cheap connection with an ISP (Internet Service Provider) in your local area.
Be sure to check that your ISP has FTP (File Transfer Protocol) and that you are
issued with an email address.
Once you have
established an account with us, you will be able to begin uploading your site
via your local Internet connection using FTP software.
If you establish a virtual domain
with us (i.e.,http://www.yourname.com/), your uploaded web site would typically
have email addresses throughout it (e.g., email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org,
A client visiting your page sends a message to any of these email addresses, and
the email forwarding that you set up from your control
panel sends the message through to your "real" email address.
Depending on the virtual domain plan which you are using, you
establish multiple forwarding to send email through to different addresses.
email@example.com --------> anne@localISP.com.yourcountry
If you establish a non-virtual
domain (i.e., http://www.starcomone.com/yourname/), you will be allocated one
email address (i.e., firstname.lastname@example.org), and will be able to set up email
forwarding from your allocated address to your local email address.
