Notes

  1. Where a web site uses a very large amount of disk space, a fee may be negotiated if the size impacts the operation of any of our services.
  2. Our ASP environment is provided by a Microsoft IIS7.5 server but sites using it are accessed by remote UNC paths. This may affect how your site needs to be designed or how it operates.
  3. Some features may need to be explicity enabled - refer to our User Guide
  4. A secure site must not be used for the collection of credit card data. A recognised payment gateway must be supported by any e-commerce application
    e.g. PayPal, PaymentExpress, Paystation etc.
