A Network You Can Depend On

At Northshore Developments, we provide our clients with a network without a single point of failure. Every device and system has a backup, a partner that can take over in case anything goes wrong. Even if one of the servers goes down, access to your data and Web site will remain uninterrupted. Constant monitoring ensures that any serious problem receives immediate attention. We estimate a network uptime of at least 99.999 percent.

Frequently Asked Questions


What is Web site hosting, and why is hosting important to my business?


Web site hosting is the business of housing and maintaining files for one or more Web sites. Hosting services allow people and businesses to get their sites online and store their customers’ data on secured servers. They also provide e-commerce solutions to help businesses make transactions over the Web.

  • Guest books

Can I transfer my site from another Web Hosting service? What’s involved in making the transfer?


Yes you can. We make the transition as smooth as possible. We pretty much take care of everything for you in order to make the transition as smooth as possible.


Why should I register my domain name through Northshore?


If you need a new domain name, we make registration quick and easy. There is a small charge for registration. If you already own a name that you registered with another service, you can use that with your account at Northshore as well.


How long does it take to register or transfer a domain name?


It usually only takes a few minutes to register a domain, but a site may not be instantly available at its registered name worldwide. However, in some areas it may be available after only a few hours. This is because Internet DNS databases retrieve new listings from one another but only update about once a day, causing a delay. The delay is typical of domain registrations and cannot be controlled by Northshore or any registrar. We handle domain transfers automatically. It takes up to 48 hours for a transfer to occur.


Can I access my site either with or without the “www” prefix?


Yes. Our servers are configured to recognize either form of your domain.


What top level domains do you support?


We support all TLDs supported by our registrar. That currently includes .com, .net, .org, and .ca. We can also host pages with other TLDs.


How long can my domain name be and what characters can I use?


Your domain name can be up to 63 characters long, not counting the TLD, although some older Internet programs only support domains up to 26 characters long. You can use numbers, letters and hyphens in your domain name.


How is my e-mail account handled?


You can access your e-mail with any client that supports POP3 e-mail. We also provide a webmail client which allows you to check your email from any computer connected to the internet.
