Domain name registration

Have you considered registering a domain name for your business? Were you confused by .com, .net, and other types of domains?

As one of the first web domains, .net has the credibility that comes with experience to help businesses begin, grow and get their best shot online. Join the millions just like you that have trusted .net to give their offline idea a home online.

Due to high speed straightline winds, the Chattanooga metro area suffered a great deal of damage to telecom and utility infrastructure Thursday evening.

During the storm, a transformer blew up, caught fire and burned through a number of fiber cables which resulted in a total loss of connectivity between Cleveland and Chattanooga for high-end fiber optic customers.

Technicians worked throughout the night to restore service. They had to repair two sides of the fiber connection due to the fire, which resulted in a LOT of fiber splices.

They finished this work at 3:30 pm EST. We are in the process of checking all of our servers and making sure all service is restored.

Say a prayer for those in the Chattanooga area who have no power in the midst of a big heat wave, especially the sick and the elderly.and those with young children.



Our hearts and prayers are in remembrance for all those affected by the storms on April 27, 2011.
