Additional Auto-Responders

Upgrades / Downgrades (Plan Changes)

Upgrade fees are calculated using the difference between the set-up and recurring fees of the former plan and the new plan. If your new plan and former plan have the exact same set-up fee, then your upgrade set-up fee is $0. There will be a $15 fee for account downgrades.

Virtual DNS

Virtual DNS allows you to customize your own nameservers for your domain name. For example: your domain name probably currently points to NS1.WEBXESS.NET and NS2.WEBXESS.NET in the “Whois” record of your Domain Registrar. With Virtual DNS, you can create customized nameserver information such as: NS1.yourdomain.com and NS2.yourdomain.com. Each custom nameserver address includes its own unique IP address. Each order includes two nameserver addresses with corresponding IPs. This is an excellent option for resellers.

There is a one-time set-up fee of $25 per order. After that the monthly cost is $10.00/mo.

Domain Pointers

Domain pointers are additional domain names that “forward” web traffic to your account. For example, your primary account domain might be mydomainname.com and then you might add a domain pointer called mydomainname2.com that forwards visitors to the same website. It is also possible to setup a special domain pointer that sends visitors to a subfolder of your account, so you can send visitors to a separate mini-website in that folder instead of the main htdocs folder.

There is a one-time set-up fee of $25 for each domain pointer. Monthly fees for special domain pointers (to sub folders) start at $5/month. Some account types may include benefits such as 1 free domain pointer. Contact us to arrange additional domain names on your account.
