Do you offer Microsoft FrontPage extensions ?

Yes. Microsoft FrontPage 98/2000/2002 extensions are available. Please note that in order for the frontpage components (contact form, hits counter and etc.) to work, you must upload your web site using the frontpage program publish feature or the component(s) will not work. Instructions to publish your website using Frontpage can be found at http://www.seanic.net/support/fp.htm

Does your server support Dreamweaver ?
Yes. Since Dreamweaver uses FTP functionality to upload and synchronize web files it is natively supported on our servers.

If Iím using Dreamweaver (or FTP), can I delete my FrontPage Extensions ?
You can remove them if you wish, although they donít do any harm if they stay there. The only drawback is if you decide to switch to FrontPage at a later date you need to contact us to reinstall the extensions.

Can I use Dreamweaver and FrontPage at the same time ?
We would recommend that you do not use Dreamweaver and FrontPage at the same time. FrontPage requires the extensions that are updated when the site is updated whereas Dreamweaver uses code contained in the html of the file. Changes made in FrontPage will be incomprehensible to Dreamweaver. FrontPage is a great program but it can rewrite your code at its own discretion which will cause problems.

Do you offer SSL (secure) hosting ?
Currently, we do not provide SSL hosting as most often, E-Commerce site owners do not need to purchase their own SSL site as most payment gateway providers will already provide their customers with secure SSL payment facilities. This will save you hundreds of dollars a year.

Do you support secure transactions ?
In most common cases, secure transaction pages are usually hosted by your payment gateway company and in that case, secure transactions are supported.

Do you support Java Applets and Javascript ? What about server-side Java ?
Our service supports all client-side languages, including Java Applets and JavaScripts. Currently, due to the lack of a stable and efficient Java engine for the Linux operating system, we don't offer server side Java. If current engines improve, we may consider this in the future.

Do I get a dedicated IP address ?
Due to the world shortage of IP addresses, we do not provide a dedicated IP for each account (Almost all web hosting providers do not provide a dedicated IP nowadays). We will provide you a temporary URL as a substitute where you may use it to access your website if your domain name is not available. However, if you wish to have a dedicated IP for your web site, it will cost you $36 per year per IP.
