At FMP COMPUTER SERVICES we do more than just rent real estate on the Internet. We provide quality, personal service based on an understanding that our clients must maintain a presence on the Internet but often don't have the time or inclination to master the technical complexities of the on-line world.

Web Service Options

FMP offers two classes of web/email hosting service which fit the needs of most of our customers.

Basic Web Service FMP's Basic Web Service offers a competitive hosting option to meet the needs of our customers who need a minimal web presence. If you need a no-frills web presence for your business at a competitive price then FMP's Basic Web Service may be what you're looking for.
Basic Document Hosting allows your website to serve text, pictures, audio files and other static documents. No support for active server technology (see Premium Web Service) is included. As with Premium Web Service, you have full access to your website files using File Transfer Protocol (FTP).
A Custom Domain Name lets you personalize your website address (URL) for your business. Charges for registration of your domain name are not included.
Unlimited Email Forwarding lets you receive email addressed to your business using your business's domain name and redirect it to the email service provided by your ISP, or elsewhere as necessary. You can customize your mail forwarding using FMP's mail management website. No FMP mailboxes are provided with Basic Web Service. Forwarded mail is not screened for viruses and spam.
Basic Web Service $16.00 / month
Setup Charge $25.00

Premium Web Service For customers with who need a state-of-the-art website, Premium Web Service provides several advanced features that will allow your business to take maximum advantage of the many opportunities available on the Internet today.

Active Server Technology provided by PHP (versions 4 and/or 5) and the MySQL database engine gives your website the ability to interact with your visitors through forms, shopping carts or personalized menus. You can serve information from a database, require passwords for access to parts of your site, offer guest books, counters and any number of other such features. You can even manage portions of your site remotely using secure administrative web access. See our tech page for more information on FMP's active server technology.

Up to 3 Custom Domain Names let you personalize your website address (URL) for your business. Your domain names lets your website visitors find you at http://www.yourbusiness.com. Charges for registration of your domain names are not included.

For customers wanting IPv6 addresses for their web resources, assignment of an IPv6 address, and DNS resolution (both forward and reverse) for this address for each Custom Domain Name is available at no extra charge. (IPv6 is experimental at FMP and assigned addresses are subject to change.)

Up to ten Local Mailboxes, with addresses using your domain names, plus unlimited email forwarding, are included with every Premium Web Service account. You may add or eliminate mailboxes and mail forwarding addresses at any time using FMP's customer mail management website.
Premium Web Service $24.00 / month
Setup Charge $25.00

OTHER SERVICES FOR YOUR WEBSITE
Domain Name Registration

FMP can register your domain name for you with one of the international registries which provide visibility for your name over the entire Internet. FMP will be responsible for keeping your domain registered and will let you know when your re-registration fee is due. Many people prefer to take care of their own domain name registrations, and we'll be happy to provide you with the information you need to do this.

Your domain name will have the form yourbusiness.com or yourorganization.org (without the "www"). Registration of a domain name depends on its availability. Domain name registrations which are maintained for you by FMP will be auto-renewed a month or so prior to their expiration. If you don't want a name re-registered for you, please let us know well before the registration expiry date.

Registration, .net and .org $20.00 / year
Registration, all others $15.00 / year

For registration and renewal of names without an FMP account, add $5.00 to the above prices.

A Note on Customer-registered Domain Names

FMP's domain name registrars are BestRegistrar.com and Dotster. Although FMP will provide technical support for domain names registered by customers with other registrars, we assume no responsibility for re-registration and maintenance of such names. If you have registered a domain name with another registrar and wish to have it supported at FMP, or if you are a current FMP customer and have domains registered with other registrars, please see our page on Customer-Registered Domain Names.


Domain Name Hosting

Once your domain name is registered, it must be supported by a "domain name server" somewhere on the Internet before it can refer to a website or be used as part of an email address. FMP can host your domain name for you whether or not we provide other services such as website hosting for you. Domain Name Hosting for a single domain name is included with Basic Web Service, and hosting for up to 3 domain names is included with Premium Web Service

For our Premium Web Service customers, we provide very flexible email service options. You may have up to 10 mailboxes at FMP to receive email using your domain name. All mail to other mail addresses in your domain (other than to mailboxes which you've set up) can be redirected to the email address of your choice. FMP can provide you with up to 20 mailboxes at a small additional monthly cost. Basic Web Service customers may use email redirection, but no mailboxes are provided.

Electronic Commerce Services

FMP offers registered Secure Sockets Layer capabilities (SSL) to allow your customers to safely make purchases or enter personal information online. Secure Sockets Layer is a standard web protocol which insures that any information your customers enter online on your website is encrypted before it leaves the customer's computer. Sensitive information such as credit card numbers or other personal data can then be safely shared between your client's computer and FMP's web servers. Customer order and credit card information can be stored for you in a local mailbox at FMP for retrieval using secure mail protocol (POP3 over SSL), supported by FMP's mail server and most modern mail clients such as Eudora and Microsoft Outlook Express. We can also have order information encrypted at the server and sent directly to the email address of your choice elsewhere, although this requires the use of special decryption software on your end. FMP does not, at this time, offer real-time credit card clearing, although we'll be happy to work with you and your clearing service to set up support for this should your business require it.

Our Secure Sockets Layer web certificate is signed by Thawte, recognized as a trusted certifying authority by all browsers the world over.

Electronic Commerce Service requires FMP's Premium Web Service for general site support.

Setup $25.00
Continuing $15.00 / month

ELECTRONIC MAIL SERVICES
Please note that FMP has a very aggressive policy toward spam, a.k.a. unsolicited commercial email or UCE. All mail received at or passed through FMP is checked against several lists of known spam-friendly sources, Mail which is flagged by any of these lists as spam is refused by FMP's mail server.
FMP Mailboxes

If you connect to the Internet through an Internet Service Provider, you will probably already have an email mailbox. Your mail program is set to pick up your email from this mailbox using either the POP3 or IMAP protocols. FMP can provide you with additional mailboxes to meet your business needs. FMP's Premium Web Service includes up to ten user-configurable mailboxes associated with your domian name and with names and passwords of your choice. Additional mailboxes are available as an extra service.

FMP mail service is also available as a standalone service without web hosting. This mail service provides the same email options as does Premium Web Service - ten user configurable mailboxes, unlimited forwarding addresses, all associated with your chosen domain name.

Mailboxes at FMP can be accessed using either of our convenient webmail interfaces, or using any of the widely available standard email programs such as Thunderbird (from Mozilla), Eudora or Microsoft Outlook Express. FMP supports secure email using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology, which encrypts your email during its journey through the public internet. Secure email (POP3 over SSL) is always available to all FMP customers and only requires that you configure your mail software to use it. Most modern email programs support this form of secure email. See our "Using Secure Email" page for instructions on setting up this feature.

FMP provides strong filtering against unsolicited commercial email, also known as "spam". If spam is a problem in your current email account, you may find a mailbox on FMP to be a useful alternative. We provide a system-wide pre-filter to stop spam from know spam sources "at the front door" and offer customizable per-address filtering which each email user can adjust for his or her own mailboxes. Spam filtering is not available for forwarded email.

FMP aggressively filters all incoming email to FMP mailboxes for attachments which may contain viruses. Suspect email is quarantined, and a notification sent to you regarding the problem. You may request release and delivery of quarantined email (at your own risk). Virus filtering is applied to all email delivered to a local mailboxs. Forwarded email is not filtered for viruses. Any FMP customer for whom email is delivered to an FMP mailbox may turn off email virus filtering on a per-mailbox basis, and fine-tuning of the virus filter for each mailbox is available by special request. See our tech page for more information on FMP's mail service.

Authenticated SMTP Service

Normally, FMP's customers use a server provided by their Internet Service Provider for sending email, using FMP's mailboxes and email forwarding only for handling inbound email directed to them at their FMP-hosted domain names. On occasion, some FMP customers may have difficulty sending out email through their ISPs over their FMP-supported email addresses, or they may have personnel who travel a great deal ("road warriors") and need a consistent way to send such email when away from their ISP's service. For this situation, FMP provides authenticated SMTP service, available to Premium Web Service or Full Service Email customers. Customers needing such as service can direct their mail programs to FMP's mail server for sending email (SMTP server) and use a mailbox address and password to gain access to the server for sending out email. The nominal charge for this service is based on the number of mailboxes available to the account - normally 10 unless additional mailboxes have been assigned.

  Authenticated SMTP Service
  Monthly $2.00


Mailing List Service

A mailing list is a way to send the same email to many different addresses. These addresses can belong to your customers, members or your organization, your friends and relatives or any group of people with access to Internet email. A mailing list can be set to allow anyone to subscribe to it, or you may control who is on the list. You may restrict who can and can't post email to the list. A "closed" or "moderated" list is often used for product or service announcements by a company or organization, while an open list may receive and distribute postings from any list subscriber. Open lists are often used as discussion forums by people with a common interest.

There are a number of options for mailing lists which are beyond the scope of this page. If you're interested in a mailing list, please call us for further information on the subject.

Please note that FMP does not support the use of mailing lists (or any other means) for distributing unsolicited commercial email, commonly known as "spam". List owners are responsible for all matters relating to subscriber and post moderation, and while FMP will assist with technical issues relating to list policy, proper configuration of lists is likewise the responsibility of list owners.

All websites built by FMP on the orders of our customers are guaranteed to function in accordance with customer specifications and requirements while hosted with FMP. FMP's hosting environment is, however, highly customized and while every effort will be made to help customers who want to port their websites to other hosting providers, there's no guarantee of portability. While websites built for a Basic Web Service account can probably be relocated with little effort, those built using the active server technologies available for Premium Web Service accounts may require substantial effort to move elsewhere and in many cases it may be easier (and cheaper) to build a new website from scratch.
