Personal Web Space
- 20MB Personal web space is free with any of our access
accounts. These pages should only be low traffic. Higher traffic web sites over 1GB per month
must use the commercial web pricing structure. If your personal web pages exceed this limit
more than two months consecutively, your web space will automatically be converted to our
first level of commercial space (Basic Web Site), and your account will be charged that rate
in addition to your regular access charge(s). Please see Acceptable
Use Policy for content restrictions.
- A Domain Name may be attached to your
personal web space for $10-$35 per year, with a $25 initial setup charge.
The relevant recurring charges are an annual domain name registrar maintenance
charge ($25), assuming we handle registration and renewal of your domain for you,
and the annual domain name carriage charge ($10).
Commercial Web Space
Web Page Development
- $50/hour, billed in 1/2 hour increments.
Please ask us for a specific quote for your web site, we will quote web sites,
and adhere to that price commitment (for your original quoted specification,
changes mid-design may increase costs).
- For those using personal web space, all access accounts
receive twenty megabytes of space with the account.
- Additional storage (beyond personal or commercial web space allocation) as follows:
- $1/month per 10 megabytes of additional storage.
- Primary Domain Name Carriage -
(Internet root server registrars charge various small amounts ($15-$35/year) to point a domain
at our servers for hosting. Registrar charges are often billed directly to the customer,
but we may rebill to your account if we handle submission or transfer of your domain for you.
Setup and carriage charges will be waived when a domain is registered in conjunction with
a web hosting or mailbox/server option.)
- Secondary Domain Name Carriage - Free
with any dedicated circuit or colocation account.
- Simple Referral - Receives a $10 rebate on service
(Defined as a simple good word that results in a new signup.)

correctly setup by referrer without telephone or on-site assistance from Altaire.)

NOTE: Referral rebates will be credited to a single
referrer only after the new client has paid their initial invoice. Referral information
needs to come to us in some form of email. Casual mention of referrals may
be forgotten. Any referral credits will be void if the parties involved do not agree.
- Dedicated circuits must contract for three months minimum.
- Telco local loop charges are the responsibilty, and will be paid by the
customer. We can assist you in quoting, and establishing these circuits.
- In Western South Dakota, US West does not
offer Fractional T1 circuits, so all FT1 circuits quoted above are port charges limited at
our end. The local loop circuits are always full T1 to your site.
- There are significant hardware and software
considerations with these circuits, please contact us if you are unsure of the
requirements. On-site consultation and/or set-up is always available for $40/HR.
