Bandwidth is the term for how much stuff you can send through a connection. It is usually measured in bits-per-second (bps) or bytes per second(Bps). When your site is up and running, you will have a limit to the amount of bandwidth it is allowed to transmit each month. For example, if you have a limit of 1500 MB per month, then all the visitors to your site combined will be allowed to use up 1500 MB worth of data. Think of bandwidth as the freeway your data must travel to get to your computer. Because the freeway must be built to handle all the traffic (data) at rush hour, the bandwidth you use is determined by amount of traffic (visits) at your website. Put simply, bandwidth is the amount of traffic that is allowed to occur between your web site and the rest of the internet.
You will have access to your control panel which will give you the total bandwidth used by your account to date as measured at the switch and various graphs to allow you to work out precisely your bandwidth usage. **Bandwidth usage is measured from samples taken at the switch.
Bandwidth is calculated each invoice for the prior month usage. You can check your bandwidth usage per server by logging into your control panel. As per policy, once you have consumed all of your bandwidth towards the latter part of the month, we will upgrade your bandwidth free of charge to keep your site available. **Upon request you may purchase additional bandwidth and disk space.
- Annual Subscriber - Clients whose subscription is less than 3 months and decided to upgrade to annual payment.
Unfortunately, we are unable to change or edit the spelling of a domain name after it has been registered. We try to register the domain exactly as you enter it. Should the registration succeed, you will be charged, even if the domain you entered was not what you actually intended to type.
We will send you up to three expiration notifications by email 30 days from the date of expiration Following the third and final auto-renewal attempt 12 days after the domain registration has expired the domain enters a redemption period, during which you may retrieve your domain name for an additional fee and renew it by contacting customer support. The redemption period lasts 30 days. One week into the redemption period, the expired domain?assuming that its registration has not been renewed?is placed into a 10-day domain auction, allowing prospective registrants to bid on the domain. The winner of the auction obtains the domain registration ownership two weeks after the auction end date if the original owner fails to renew the domain by the end of the redemption period. Once the redemption period ends?and the domain has neither been renewed nor obtained through auction or backordering?the domain is deleted at the registry. After that, the domain name re-enters the public pool of available domains, and it is no longer redeemable. NOTE: 1. If the domain has a backorder, the expired domain will skip the redemption period and automatically be transferred to the new owner 2. To renew the domain during the redemption period, you must pay the redemption fee ($100) and the cost of the renewal.
The process for transferring a domain from us to another registrar partially depends on the registrar you want to transfer to. For more information about transferring domains to another registrar, see that registrar's help. There is a 60 day transfer restriction period for new or renewed registrations, recently transferred domains, or changes to the registrant's contact name. After unlocking your domain, you can initiate a transfer with your new registrar. When you complete the process with the new registrar, we send you an email message that includes instructions for authorizing the transfer away from us. Email us at email@example.com to request for your domain's EPP code or authorization code or Transfer code.
Transferring a domain name to us often takes five days or less, but transfers may take up to seven days to complete. To transfer a domain name, we simply need the EPP code or the Authorization Code or the Transfer code of your domain. Helpful hints: 1. ICANN regulations prohibit transferring a domain name that has been registered or previously transferred within the last 60 days. 2. Verify that the email address for the domain name's administrative contact at your current registrar is correct. This is the address we are required to contact to request approval for the transfer. 3. You will be notified that the transfer is complete. Inaccurate or incomplete contact data may result in the cancellation of your domain name. 4. If the domain name is locked, the transfer will fail. Contact your current registrar in order to unlock your domain name.

No, Maintaining phone support systems and staff are costly and would only jack up the prices of the hosting services we provide. In most cases, email and Instant Messaging support are faster and more effective.
Call centers are extremely expensive to operate and would force our prices up significantly. We provide hosting solutions to clients from many different countries and telephone support does not efficiently function across that platform whereas web based support does. We find that we can be more specific with web based support compared to verbal support via the phone. Web based support also documents our responses so you can revisit them at a later date rather than trying to make your own notes from a telephone conversation.
Web hosting is a service that simply means we provide you with disk space to place your web site on. Think of a web host ( CidHosting.Net ) as a landlord.

Each business decorates and operates their store differently and leaves building maintenance to the landlord (web host). Likewise, a web host rents space on a web server to various businesses. Each business builds its own web site while the web host maintains the network of web servers.
