Prado can help you connect one computer, or many, to the Internet. Prices vary depending on whether you need a part time or
full time connection, what method you will use to connect, and how many computers will use the connection.

Prado can file the paperwork with the InterNIC to register your domain name. The InterNIC has established a $100 charge for
new domain registrations. This charge is paid directly to the InterNIC and will maintain your registration for the first two years.

An Internet domain is required to have two name servers which will answer DNS requests for the domain. Prado will provide
name service for your domain, and will arrange for another computer on a different network to provide secondary name
There is a charge for Domain Name Service.
Machine Name Service
For smaller networks, when you are using address space assigned by Prado, it is usually best to let Prado handle name
service. There is no charge for maintaining name service when you get connectivity through Prado. You simply let Prado know
what machine names correspond to each address and we will set it up.
For both Domain Hosting and Machine Name Service, there is a
small charge if you later decide to change machine names.
E-Mail and Etc.
Each of Prado's Connectivity options includes a mailbox. For network connections, where you wish to receive mail on one of
your own machines, we configure our mail server to act as a backup in case your mail machine is unreachable. If you do not
wish to receive mail on one of your systems you may use the included mailbox as a regular pop mail mailbox.
Extra E-Mail mailboxes, and E-Mail aliases, are available for a small fee.
The exact number of addresses assigned to your company will depend on the number of machines that you have and on the
organization of your network. As your network grows you will be assigned additional addresses.
Please see our IP Policy page.
There is no charge for IP addresses.
