are the benefits?
Benefits are as follows:
|Changing my email address for use with Mail Forwarding||EMail
forwarding is the simplest option for your email, this retains your Freeserve,
Virgin or ISP account with incoming mail forwarded to it. Email that you
send can be configured to use your
domain account for example:
email@example.com this looks a lot more professional than: firstname.lastname@example.org
|POP3 mail box||A
POP3 email account stores your mail on the domain server until you recover
it. Connect with your ISP and receive mail from your domain POP account

A free ISP is fine
for personal web pages, however, speed, connectivity and availability
are often compromised with free offerings. Also, the origin of your web
server ie www.myfreepage.myfreeservice.co.uk will be revealed instead
of, your domain name say www.ngresources.net to your visitors.
Should your site become popular, some free services may become unreliable,
cap or limit available bandwidth.
With a control panel we offer unlimited E-mail POP boxes, forwarders and auto reponders and you have control of your domain. Some hosts may charge £1.00 per month upwards for additional mailboxes, with a control panel configure as many as you want.
Your Free ISP may
throttle the bandwidth available to you, making your site run slowly or
not at all during busy periods and may not provide sophisticate server
side tools to inform you exactly which pages work for you such as Matrixstats
|eu.com and uk.com domains||
Unfortunately, this type of domain extension is not a top level domain, for example: www.mydomain.uk.com is a subdomain of www.uk.com which is used commercially for thousands of names so it cannot be moved. There are two options if you do not want to pay excessive prices for server space:
1. If you are going to be charged excessively for hosting but dont want to move the domain, point the DNS A record at our servers and we can allocate web space. We can help you with this
2. Dump it and register a top level domain elsewhere with server space
Please note: we can now register & host top level .eu domains!
|Front Page Extensions||
YES, although we find Frontpage produces ambiguous code & reccomend you write your site in ASP
|Microsoft .NET||YES the Microsoft .net V 2.0 framework is supported for an additional charge due to requiring a more powerful server|
|Availability||The figure quoted is greater than 99.8% although the last six months operating have resulted in all sites being 99.95% with some 100% available.|
Every effort is made to ensure availability of your web site.
Past experience has demonstrated that routing problems, particularly with BT can cause local non availability with BTs own customers unable to access the Internet. In one incident, a defective DNS server caused incorrect IP routing, meanwhile ALL domains were available and continued to be accessed by those not using BT to connect to the Internet this report has more detail. We would like to stress that BT DO NOT handle any routing or exchange services, as they cannot provide an acceptable SLA.
Should the service be unavailable for reasons beyond our control, ngresources or NG Resources cannot accept liability for non availability or failure but will endeavor to resume normal operations as quickly as possible and follow up 100% of support calls.
|Cant send mail||
We recommend that AOL & BT users who wish to send and receive POP3 mail use an advanced mailbox with its own roaming SMTP server
Please be aware BT attempt to block sending mail from 3rd party domains, and AOL block port 25 (smtp port) - please avoid these ISPs. If you use BT or AOL an advanced mailbox overcomes these draconian limitations
Want to send very large attachments? please use www.yousendit.com its free and it works really well
|Cant receive mail||
There are several reasons why you may not be able to receive mail, for example:
If you try pinging your mailbox be aware that the replies will time out even when the mailserver is running and traceroute is also blocked
|Changes||Contact us with your changes, for example: new ftp or email account passwords can easily be created for you should these be lost or forgotten.|
|Custom setup||No problem, we appreciate our customers requirements vary, just Contact us for an estimate.|
|Disclaimer and terms||
Provision and use of our hosting services means you accept our terms. NG Resources cannot be responsible for material or information published on any of its hosted web sites in any way without exception. Liability for compliance and operation within the laws of the United Kingdom rests solely with the operator and registrar of the domain.
