Web-based email is electronic mail that can be sent and received from a Web site
on the Internet, using a Web browser (like Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer),
rather than using an email program (such as Qualcomm Communications' Eudora
or Microsoft Outlook). The advantage of Web-based email is that it can be
retrieved and sent from any computer with an Internet connection, whereas traditional
email programs must be configured on a specific computer to send and receive mail
for a particular email address.
NetRegister makes security a priority.
NetRegister's Email Service utilizes state-of-the-art security measures in its
mail system architecture. Mail stored on our email servers is accessible only
by you and protected by a secret password you select. If you log into NetRegister's
Email Service from a public terminal, you can choose to have your pages expired
so nobody can look at your past email sessions.

file, quicktime video, etc. is loaded, data transfer is generated. Each of our
plans includes a generous amount of free data transfer which should be more than
enough for most sites. In fact, 98% to 99% of our customers operate within their
free data transfer allowance.
