ACCOUNT  SET-UP

"the  establishment  of  the  customer's  account"

        Relative to the hosting package you choose, this set-up is initiated with the processing of your order, followed by the allocation of web-space and the establishment of your choice of website address.  If the chosen web address is a sub-directory, Friendly Computer Services proceeds to create that address with the allocation of the web space and establishes your website presence therein.

        If your choice of web address is a previously unregistered domain name, it must be researched, to confirm the availability of that domain name and then, the submission process is completed at the respective registrar office and, upon receival of confirmation that the domain name registration is complete, usually three to seven days later, the technical connections to Friendly Computer Services servers must be processed, so that whenever a viewer goes to www.yourchoice.com, that visitor can view your website thereat.

        If the chosen address is a previously registered domain name, a request for domain name transfer must be submitted to the respective registrar office and, upon receival of confirmation that the domain name transfer is complete, usually three to seven days later, the technical connections to Friendly Computer Services servers, must be processed, so that whenever a viewer goes to www.yourname.com, that visitor can view your website thereat.  The time required to transfer a previously registered domain name to Friendly Computer Services servers, is relative to the registrar through which the original registration was processed, the present ownership of the domain name, and the present location of the website to which the domain name is connected.  Although Friendly Computer Services shall make every effort to ensure a seamless transition to our servers, circumstances beyond our control, may cause a temporary lapse of service and website availability as the transition is in progress.  If one or more eMail addresses are associated with the respective domain name, eMail could be lost during the duration of the transition and for this reason, Friendly Computer Services advises the establishment of a temporary alternative FREE eMail address to which eMail may be redirected during this time. 

        After the chosen web address is accessible, Friendly Computer Services customizes your chosen home page and website navigation structure or, initiates the transfer of your present website files to your new location, prior to providing eMail notification of the completion and availability thereof.

        Thereafter, unless Friendly Computer Services receives your request for whatever changes, amendments, updates, or upgrades to your website, your website is maintained perpetually until you request otherwise or cancel your payment arrangements.
