What is web site Hosting?
We specialize in web site Hosting, meaning that you can place your web
site on our state-of-the-art Silicon Graphics web servers and
establish a presence on the Internet. If you wish, we will register
your own Domain name for you. This will become your unique address on
the World Wide Web (www.YourCompany.com).
How does it work?
First, you must have your own domain name. This involves checking for
name availability and registering the domain. Aryanaweb will register the
domain for you. If you already own a domain and wish to have it hosted
with Aryanaweb, we will transfer the domain free of charge.
New domain name registrations
1. Why should I register a domain name?
A domain name will give you a unique identity on the Internet. In
some ways, a domain name is similar to a customized license plate.
Many organization find it useful to have an e-mail or Web address
that is similar to their company name or to their company product(s).
If your organization's name is Example, Inc., you could register the
domain name EXAMPLE.COM and your
e-mail address could be firstname.lastname@example.org. Your customers would
also be able to access your organization's Web site by visiting "www.example.com"
with their Web browser.
2. Who can register a .COM, .NET and .ORG domain name?
Guidelines for which types of entities should register in each of
the three Top Level Domains (TLD) were provided in RFC 1591. It was
suggested that .COM be used primarily for commercial businesses,
.NET for network related organizations and .ORG for nonprofit
3. What are the valid characters for a domain name and how long can
The only valid characters for a domain name are letters, numbers and
a hyphen. Special characters like the underscore (_) or an
exclamation mark (!) are NOT permitted. Domain names cannot contain
spaces or begin or end with a hyphen. A domain name can be up to 26
characters long including the 4 characters used to identify the Top
Level Domain (.NET, .COM, .ORG, or .EDU).
example.com is a valid domain name (11 characters) http://www.example.com
is not a domain name, it is a uniform resource locator (URL) used by
Web browsers to find documents and resources www.example.com is not a
domain name, www is the name of one computer in the example.com

so you can mirror the site on our server. When we announce the
completion of the transfer there is a 48 hour period where visitors
could go to either site. We will send an e-mail to your previous
Hosting company informing them of the change. Your previous host will
authorize and e-mail back to us. Sometimes it may be necessary to
contact your old host by phone.
