ISP Service Transition
Chesapeake Online, Inc.
The transition of GREENBELT.COM Internet services to Chesapeake will be accomplished between May 10 and May 31 and will proceed generally as follows:
- Subscriber service accounts will be defined on Chesapeake servers.
- GREENBELT.COM and subscriber website files will be transferred to Chesapeake.
- Transition instructions will be distributed to subscribers via website bulletin, e-mail and postal mail.
- Subscribers will configure their Internet software to access GREENBELT.COM services at Chesapeake.
- Subscribers should test all their services and report to GIAC any problems encountered at Chesapeake.
GIAC volunteers will assist subscribers as needed on a first-come, first-served basis.
- On Friday, May 28, a request will be submitted to InterNIC to transfer the GREENBELT.COM domain name from SigmaNet to Chesapeake.
Due to the high volume of InterNIC transactions, the exact time of transfer is unpredictable but is expected to occur by Sunday, May 30.
- GREENBELT.COM e-mail messages will begin to arrive at the Chesapeake mail server immediately upon transfer of the domain name.
Messages not downloaded from the SigmaNet mail server prior to the domain transfer will be lost -- subscribers are advised to retrieve their messages as often as possible after May 28.
