Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Where do I send the information for my webpage?

Q. If I provide my email address to WebSpawner, will I get unwanted "spam" emails?
A. No... WebSpawner dislikes "spam" messages very much, maybe even more than you do!
WebSpawner will send only occasional emails regarding the status of your webpage account and related services provided by WebSpawner (note that you may decline these at any time by adjusting the Options in your account). WebSpawner Customer Service will respond to any emailed requests for assistance which you may send. To ensure that you can receive assistance with your account, please be sure to provide a valid email address which you will check periodically.
Webspawner will NOT share, sell or rent your email address to other companies or individuals. WebSpawner also prohibits its members from using WebSpawner's services to send "spam" emails to others.

A.Yes, WebSpawner uses SSL ("Secure Socket Layer") connections to encrypt the billing information entered into the secure online order forms provided. Your card will only be billed for the services that you select on the order form.
Q. How do I find my webpage using search engines? (How do I register?)
A.After your webpage has been indexed by the search engines, it may be found by anyone searching for related keywords as it will be returned among the search result listings. The length of time varies from one search engine to another in respect to how long it will take to include your listing. While some search engines may include a newly-submitted site very soon, others (especially the larger, more popular engines) may take as many as 6-8 weeks to review a submitted site and include it in its search listings.
For more information about search engines and website promotion, see the "Premium Services" tab in the Members Menu.
Q. Can I have multiple pages under one address?
A.Yes, Enhanced and above account members can create multiple pages under one account. An automated linking option is provided to link the URLs for all pages and create a functioning, multi-page website.
Q. Can I put HTML code in my Webpage?
A.Yes, you may insert HTML code into the body text area of your webpage. Be sure not to include header and footer information, as our system automatically provides that information. (See the next Question for more information about adding HTML code.)
Q. May I include a banner in my webpage? If so, how?
A. You may include banners in your webpage. To do so, you must insert the HTML code provided to you by the source of the banner into the body text area of your webpage between begin and end markers. For example:
HTML code for the banner
is placed here between the
These markers notify the WebSpawner Engine that it should not filter any of the information within the confines of the markers. In this manner the resulting HTML code is written properly to your webpage. Begin and end markers should be used any time you add HTML code to your webpage.

A. If you have an Enhanced page, go to the 'Image' step in the modification process, select the option to add an image and then follow the instructions provided to upload the image from your computer. If your web browser does not support the image upload process then attach your .gif or .jpg image to an e-mail message along with the account name and password for your webpage and we will upload your image for you. Send the image to: firstname.lastname@example.org
