|How does a VIRTUAL SERVER work?|
|Bard Web Hosting's VIRTUAL SERVER operating system divides a single
computer into multiple, "virtual" machines. Each virtual machine
has its own unique domain name (ie: "yourcompany.com").
Although each virtual machine runs on a part of our WWW server, to you and your clients, it's just as if you were operating your own private Web server under your own Internet domain.
|Is it expensive to own a VIRTUAL SERVER?
What kind of server packages are available?
|Not at all. VIRTUAL SERVERS start for as little as $20 per month with full
telephone technical support and 30 Mega Bytes of disk space for web pages and FTP files.
Our highly optimized servers are assured to give you the Internet presence needed to make your
business succeed in the Global marketplace. Additional disk storage is $1 per Megabyte

How are they connected to the Internet?

Our dedicated connection to the Internet is provided via a Multiple Redundant T-3 connections that has automatic switching in the event that one should go down to insure all domains hosted by Bard Web Hosting the needed bandwidth on demand!
|Can I get personalized E-Mail using a VIRTUAL SERVER?|
|Each Virtual Server comes with a certain number of E-Mail accounts in your domain name depending on the
package that you have ordered. You may add additional individual E-Mail accounts to your domain or even
have Aliases to exsisting E-mail addresses. |
Please call about our E-mail Services for more information(941-778-7234).
You may check your E-Mail using any browser over the Web, or using a POP3 compliant email program (Eudora, Netscape Mail, etc.). We can also set up 'forwarding' to another E-Mail address at no extra charge.
|How easy is it to run a VIRTUAL SERVER?|
|You can run your VIRTUAL SERVER with your existing Windows, UNIX/Linux or
Macintosh PC. You just need a few simple software tools and an
Internet connection. Plus, each VIRTUAL SERVER comes with complete
telephone, FAX, WWW, and E-Mail technical support. Unlike most
presence providers, we won't just leave you out in the cold to figure out everything
on your own.|
|Can I run CGI scripts on my VIRTUAL SERVER?|
|Yes! With a Virtual Server account you have full use of the
Operating System and can run CGI connecting to: server-side includes,
Perl, C, C++ and Python. You can create your own CGI-BIN and run your own
CGI programs. However, our servers do not support JAVA-based cgi, for Microsoft Frontpage extensions.
You may compile scripts on your own , but you may not actually compile programs on our machines. Sorry, but our machines are designed for web serving, not development.
