Hosted Web Account
SVPAL provides hosted web accounts for non-profit organizations and individuals who want their own presence on the web. A hosted web account provides you with a web site at your domain (e.g. www.yourdomain.org) and allows you to send and receive email with your own domain (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org). Before ordering a Hosted Web Account you should check the availability of the name you want to register.

See our fees page for more details and a comparison of choices. You can subscribe by printing our hosted web account application form, filling it out, then mailing it to us with your check. If you need more than 80MB of web site storage, you may request more with the miscellaneous application form. A hosted web account is $60/year (or $100/year with PPP access).
An email alias allows you to have a second email address without the expense of mailbox account. For only $6/year you can have an email address at SVPAL, that accepts email and forwards it to any other mailbox you have on the Internet. You can subscribe by printing our miscellaneous application form, filling it out, then mailing it to us with your check.
An email list allows you to maintain a list of subscribers. These "Mailman" email lists allow your users to subscribe/unsubscribe themselves. You can also moderate the list to prevent inappropriate messages from being posted to your subscribers. These lists can be used for discussion areas, or as a convenient way to pass information onto your subscribers. These lists are only $12/year. You can subscribe by printing our miscellaneous application form, filling it out, then mailing it to us with your check. To learn more, read the Mailman documentation.
