Virus Protection

We update our anti-virus dictionary to defend against the latest virus definitions. Our mail server currently scans for, and blocks, hundreds of thousands of viruses preventing them from reaching your users. It is important to remember, however, that any email anti-virus protection is not 100% reliable because all dictionary updates are issued after the virus is identified. Our email anti-virus protection is just the first line of defence and should be used with other anti-virus prevention tools especially since viruses are not just distributed by email.

It is a simple process to register domain names online. The availability of a Canadian domain name (.ca) as well as links to trusted registrars can be found at the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA). The availability of many other domain extensions (e.g., .com, .net, .org, .us, .bz, etc.) can be checked at Network Solutions among others. If you are uncomfortable with the process of registering your domain name or transferring it to Skyway, email Skyway West and we’ll be happy to help you.

During the registration process, or when transferring, you will be asked for Skyway West name server addresses. They are:

ns1.sohoskyway.net
ns2.sohoskyway.net

Our Control Panel allows secure web access to manage Domain Names and email accounts, including reverse and forward lookups and TTL (Time to Life) parameters. Skyway West provides free domain name hosting to our customers. We charge $50/domain per year for non-Skyway customers.
