  1. No setup fee for any hosting plan or upgrade
  2. Domain names are chosen by you, subject to name availability on the Internet. We can host domain name that you already own, but there is no discount. See help for selecting your domain name. One free domain name per account purchased, however additional domain names(.com/org/net) can be purchased for $10/year(see pricelist above) and "mapped" (parked) to the same account to provide a sort of synonym or alias.

    See our terms and conditions regarding Domain Name Registration. ALL of our domain names are automatically renewed at the registrar each year unless otherwise notified at least 8 weeks prior to renewal date (to allow for processing time, renewals occur 1 month prior to yearly expiration). Advanced years can be purchased ahead (up to 10 years for most TLDs), but that pre-purchase fee is invoiced at the time of purchase, and no refunds can be made yearly against your hosting plan.

    If your domain name is adandoned or your account is unpaid (hosting or labor) or you explicitly do not want your domain name renewed, the domain name becomes the property of Sherwood Hosting LLC and may be re-used for whatever purpose we choose, including but not limited to, sold at auction, sold to a competitor, held for investment, used as a staging/testing site for web development.

    Expired Domain Names are expensive to retrieve (minimum $250 up to thousands of dollars). Treat them carefully, and keep your account payments current with Sherwood Hosting.

  3. Email forwarding allows you to use an email address with your own domain name (selected by you and registered by us) and have it forwarded to a mailbox that you have hosted somewhere else (for instance: your connectivity ISP provider may give you a mailbox that has their domain name as a part of it--your new domain name email address would remain the same if you need to change ISP providers; or you could have your domain name email forwarded to your work email address)
  4. An Email POP mailbox is a full-featured mailbox which collects incoming email until you access it with your mail reader (such as Outlook Express, Outlook, Eudora). A POP email account has a mail server, username, and password associated with it. You can access a POP email box via various web reader sites, such as, or via your Cpanel "webmail" facility.
  5. One web page is offered, with 1 image. You supply the text and image. Edits after the initial approval are at web design rates, 1/4 hour labor rate minimum.
  6. You can have as many pages as you like with Plan D, limited only by disk space in your account. You can design and maintain the pages in your site and upload them via your FTP account (see #7 below). SherwoodWeb is available to assist as much or as little as you request for design (contact us for our hourly fees).
    We also offer a web site design tool (browser-based; nothing to install) called SiteZen for an add-on fee of $10/year. See example at bottom of home page.
  7. FTP (file transfer protocol) is the method by which you "publish" (upload) your web pages (text and images). FTP accounts are necessary for you (or your web designer) to manage/change your own web site. Similar to other types of computer accounts, an FTP account gives you your own username and password. You use your own application (computer program) to perform the FTP uploading operations. There are several options for these applications:
  8. Disk Space Storage is the quota (maximum limit) for total storage disk space that your files consume (MB or KB) that you're allowed for this plan. This quota is upgradeable for an extra fee per year. Your web files are stored on Sterling Arts' server. Also your incoming email is stored here temporarily until you access (download) it. You need to leave yourself enough unused disk space storage in addition to your web site files in order to hold what you might expect is your largest incoming email attachment.
    See explanation of various quotas.
  9. Web traffic transfer is a quota that limits the amount of outgoing traffic (text and image files) from your web site. This would include your web site visitors when they access various pages and images within your site (but not links to other sites). Traffic quotas (sometimes called "bandwidth") are typically not at all a concern unless you are a high-traffic site, e-commerce site, or have large files (such as video or audio/MP3 files) that are downloaded often from your site.
  10. Upgrades allow you to expand from your basic hosting plan "D". Each separate item is $15 per year. For instance if you wanted an extra 1000M of transfer/month  and  100M of disk space, that would total $30 per year in additional fees.
    Prorating: If you upgrade in the middle of the year, the prorated per-month charge is $2 (with a maximum of $15). Example, if your web hosting billing period is January to December, and you wanted to add 100M of disk space storage starting November 1, you'd be charged $4 for the 2 months remaining in the year.
