Where are your servers located?

         The Thai Hosting Server is located in California. We have multiple lines to the
Internet, some of them specially installed for East coast and international traffic. Thus the physical location of your web hosts' servers is irrelevant. As long as they have great services and support you should be fine. Thai Hosting  has both of these! The future plans for installing remote servers on the East coast as well as in several key countries.

How long does it take to get my new domain on-line?

          We move fast! We guarantee that your server will be on-line and waiting for you to upload your files within 24-72 business hours of receiving payment. 

Do I still have to pay the InterNIC for my domain name?

          If you are reserving a new domain name, the answer is yes. Currently the InterNIC charges $70 for the first two years of ownership and then $35 per year after that. This is included in the Thai Hosting setup fee.  If you are transferring an existing domain name the InterNIC doesnot charge.

What is the process for transferring my domain?

          Thai Hosting will take care of all new and transfer request forms for you. You will be sent an email from the InterNIC asking you to accept the transfer request. Your current Web host will also receive this letter and may veto it. This is what we call the "hostile host" and you do have the authority to veto their veto (should the need arise). The prompt return of this InterNIC email on both parties behalf is important. The only cost involved is the initial payment of the server, setup, and monthly. Other than that you may have a period of downtime anywhere from 24-72 hours, depending on how fast the InterNIC is processing orders and how fast you can upload your files to your IP address (this is what you recieve until the InterNIC has processed the domain registration). Also remember that the ISPs all over the world have to update the new changes in the InterNIC database. Most ISPs do this three times a day, some as little as once per week. This may attribute to a little domain-downtime as well.  via
address. In order to assure prompt transfer make sure your email address with the InterNIC is correct. All of these factors included, give yourself a good week to get your domain up. Another good idea is to forewarn all participating parties of your moving by putting up a "We are moving" note on your existing home page with moving dates and a reminder note to hit "Reload" to refresh their cache to see the new page on the new server.

What if I want to upgrade? How? Do I pay?

            You need to pay setup fee for the upgrading also the downgrading is free of charge

Do I get RealAudio/RealVideo?

            Yes with the WEB 3 Plan or higher.

            Yes! We offer secure (SSL) server for an added fee. You can use this for secure order forms, databases, secure credit card transactions, or anything else you wish. To order SSL be sure to select the WEB 3 or higher

What is the difference between NT and Unix?
