Early 2005 the
spoofing of our older email addresses increased
tremendously. We thus have deleted all old accounts. Any
inconvenience is regretted (30/8/2005)
Since 1999, two of our partners have been hosting their company's
web pages together under a jointly registered domain name.
It was in March 2002, when they suddenly realised that their
website has been deregistered. The reason: they forgot to pay
the annual registration fee. But that was not all. They also learned
that the domain name itself has been sold to someone else, a company
just having started its operation in Fiji.
So the two companies decided to register a new domain name, www.fijihosting.com. One
that associates our country with the intended function of providing
affordable web hosting space for themselves and other interested
They discussed their new intentions with some business friends.
The response was encouraging: a lot of smaller organisations and
companies in Fiji don't have enough marketing and advertising funds
to afford their own web presence.
Our philosophy is not to get rich with our idea, but to share the
hosting costs between different parties. What we always want covered
is our Internet connection time for uploading and maintenance and
the time spent on moving individual websites underneath Fijihosting.
Look at it as some kind of community service to interested persons
and business entities.
We have found a reliable and affordable hosting provider who
offers us excellent support, fast server and communication hardware
with high availability. And we don't have to pay anything extra for
having FrontPage 2000 Server Extensions installed on their system.
In addition, it has the provision for an e-commerce store.
To be honest, there are are a few drawbacks:
|Our hosting provider offers the possibility to subhost a
website underneath Fijihosting in the format: www.yourname.fijihosting.com.
This is a nice feature, however we cannot publish FrontPage
subwebs, therefore it is useless to us|
|If you subhost with us, you cannot publish your website
directly (actually, you could, but only cumbersome using FTP;
furthermore, FrontPage webs would not work). This means, you
have to supply your web site updates to us as a zipped file (we
recommend Winzip for
compressing tasks) and we will publish it for you. We agree that
this is a little bit awkward for companies that change their
sites often. Thus, for those who require daily or weekly website
updates, we recommend to use one of our other hosting plans
(Basic, Premium, Gold, Platinum) were you can publish directly
from your PC.|
However, we feel that the advantages of our hosting solutions far
outweigh above 'glitches'.
Remember: we can host your website 2 weeks for free.
To be exact, you only have to pay a modest
one-off upload and administration fee of F$50. If
you use our automated
join service and upload your website yourself, there are no
cost at all!
Using the Internet and computer magazines we also shopped around
to check prices for domain name registration. We have never found
anyone offering cheaper rates: if you host with us we will register
your own website name (.com, .org, .info, biz) for only F$40 per
year. We invite you to hunt around for any cheaper deal.
Although some of our team have been building
websites since 1996, site design is not our bread-and-butter
more sophisticated design requirements, we can offer you services
from our freelancing, professional webmasters and graphic designers. If you want us to do the
website developing job for you, get in contact with us
