- Domain Redirection : $30 annually
If you would like a custom domain name, but you are not ready for an outside website, this option is for you. With domain redirection, people will be immediately redirected to your BBCanada.com webpage (www.bbcanada.com/1234.html) when they type in your web address (www.yourbbname.com).
Yes, absolutely. Easy as 1, 2, 3!
Please note: If you are currently hosted with another company, please DO NOT WAIT until your current hosting expires. Expired domains cannot be transfered. You will be stuck paying your current hosting company for another year if you wait until your hosting renews. Do it early! We'll gladly help!
We charge nothing to coordinate the transfer of your existing website to our server. We charge $100 + applicable taxes per year to host your site, which includes domain name renewal each year. We pro-rate at $0.27 + applicable taxes per day to your renewal date with us when you first join.
Here are the 3 steps to transfer your domain:
- Visit our Domain Payment Center : www.bbcanada.com/bb_custom_domain_payment.cfm
You will be asked for your domain name and your BBCanada subscriber number.
- Transfer your personal website. For more about transferring, please see "How can I get my website to you?"
- If you would like email, tell us if you want your mailbox to be a POP3 account or redirected. (Please email this information to us at email@example.com.)
We'll transfer domain control from your current provider to us. We will install your web site. We will set up a mailbox. Your domain will then be stored and accessed from our server.
Yes, of course! You don't have to have a B&B related site to benefit from this deal! We will host sites if you agree to our requirements (for example, no scripting languages). We reserve the right to decline to host any site.
