(secure or non secure)

Each web site needs to be stored on an Internet Server; this is called hosting. You do not need any extra computer equipment. You simply pay a company like Gatefold an annual fee and it is stored for you. We currently charge 100 per year. Very large sites (over 5MB) incur a slightly higher fee dependent on size. As an example this site would only require our 5MB slot and therefore a 100 fee.

If you will be taking customers credit card details you will require secure server hosting. When data is transmitted using a secure server it is encrypted at the customer's end and sent securely to the shop.

If you choose Gatefold to be your hosting provider you will receive the following:

         5MB Web space (additions can be made in increments of 5MB)

         Hits Counter

        CGI Access

NOTE: If a site is hosted by us at www.gatefold.co.uk/yoursitename any updates must be made by ourselves and this is chargeable.
