Hosting Your Own URL at TrainWeb
(http://www.trainweb.com/tech/myownurl.html)

We are sometimes asked by people that wish to have their website hosted at TrainWeb if they can have a unique domain name instead of using a suffix on the end of the www.trainweb.org URL.

We wish to make this option available to those people and organizations that would like to use their own URL. But, there are some issues involved with hosting sites using their own URL. It does take more time for our technical staff to set up these URLs, additional table entries are needed in our databases, IP addresses have to be obtain for each URL hosted, and there are additional steps that we need to go through to index and promote the sites that do not use the standard www.trainweb.org URL. In addition, when a person or organization promotes their own website which does not have the www.trainweb.org prefix, TrainWeb loses an element of exposure. That element of exposure is one of the major reasons why we offer free web hosting.

Thus, we have come up with a compromise to try to satisfy those webmasters that want to use their own URL, but which will also compensate TrainWeb for the additional labor and loss of exposure that results from hosting websites without the www.trainweb.org prefix. We have decided to host sites that wish to use their own URL for $60 per year ($5 per month). We realize there are other web hosting companies where you can host your site for less and probably be provided with more support services. However, we will provide the same level of promotion of your site to the rail community that we provide to all other free websites hosted on the TrainWeb server. That is something that you cannot obtain from any other web hosting company!

Just like the policy for hosting free websites on www.trainweb.org, this URL pricing is only available for the hosting of non-commercial websites. This offer is open to both organizations and individuals. Please keep in mind that no changes are being made to the free web hosting that we offer to rail related non-commerical websites that continue to use URLs with the www.trainweb.org prefix.
