Online Services Account Descriptions

Activities conducted while using any Online Services account or service are subject to the Online Services User Agreement Form and Acceptable Use Policy, both of which may be revised at any time without notice.

Group Dial-Up Accounts


The Flex group account is designed for the business/organization that has multiple people needing simultaneous Internet access. Each member will be assigned their own dial-up account but the usage for their dial-up account will be charged to the group. By pooling the usage of all group members into a single Flex account, the group can save considerable money over purchasing individual accounts for each member.

Each individual Flex member is $75/year, to be paid up front at the beginning of the account and account renewal. There are two billing options for time used:

Flex Group Pricing:

Flex group member $75/yr (no set-up fee)

Usage Payment Options:

$300/yr per 100hr/mo blocks (pooled time)
30 cents/hour (billed monthly)

NOTE: The following accounts/services DO NOT include dial-up access. Please read the descriptions carefully as some may require an existing dial-up account with Online Services.

Virtual Domains

A virtual domain allows you to have your own customized place on the Internet without having to purchase and maintain expensive computer equipment and Internet connections. With our virtual domain account, people will be able to send mail to your domain (such as you@your-domain.com) and access web pages under your domain (such as www.your-domain.com).

You must currently have a dial-up or core account with Online Services, or purchase one with your virtual domain account. If you already have an active account with Online Services, then your virtual domain account will be prorated for the remainder of your account.

Registrar Fees

If you have not already registered your domain, you will need to register your domain with a registrar before we can activate your virtual domain. The registrar will charge you their own fees for registering your domain and periodic renewal fees to keep your domain ownership. The fees charged by your registrar are separate from the fees charged by Online Services. Please refer to our virtual domain registration instructions for further information on registering your domain.

Virtual Email Addresses

The email addresses for your domain are not real mailboxes, but rather aliases that point to real mailboxes. Mail sent to an address under your domain will be delivered to the real mailbox the address points to.

Virtual Domain Pricing
Virtual domain pricing does not include space on our web server or bandwidth for your web pages, which is already included with our dial-up and core account. If you do not have a dial-up or core account, then you will need to purchase one of these accounts in addition to the virtual domain pricing.


Individual Virtual Domain Items
Our dial-up and core accounts include space on our web server and bandwidth to serve your web pages. If you need more than the default levels included with your account or you need additional virtual email addresses for your domain, you may purchase them individually.
