Free Web Site Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. Does my account come with free web space?

A1.Yes, all SOCKET dial-up customers get 5MB of disk space (with certain restrictions.). Please visit to establish your site.

Q2. What are the restrictions on the free web space?

A2. The restrictions are:

5MB space limit
2GB traffic limit
can only use pre-written CGI-Bin scripts
virtual domains not available (e.g. format)
non-commercial use only

Q3. What is a "2GB traffic limit"?

A3. It means only 2 Gigabytes worth of files may be viewed from your web site. For example, if your web site had a single page on it that was 50K in size (including pictures), then it could be seen by the rest of the internet 40,000 times a month.
