In October 1998, Mail Bank Corporation bought over 10 000 domain name and offered to sell some sub-domain. For 9.99$US for the installation fees and 5$US per year, they were offering a E-mail forward and a URL forward to any other web site. They were promising to always keep the same price and never increase it. They had two different name that I was interested : fortin.net and fortin.org. At that time, I bought the sub-domain luc, with this I was able to receive e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. It easier to remember email@example.com than firstname.lastname@example.org or any other hotmail addresses. I also change my e-mail address on all my business cards, tell all my contacts, parents and friends. In November 1999, Mail Bank decided that they would now charged 9,99$US for the e-mail and 19,99$US for the web forward system. I was very angry about this.
In 1996, a German company called Information Technologies bought fortin.com. Since fortin.com was not available, I paid the big price and stayed with Mail Bank.
September 2000, unfortunately, the German company had closed few month earlier and fortin.com was now available. It
took less that 5 minutes to bought it. Now the
site is hosted in
The hosting for the domain name, administrations and all other stuff cost me about 250$CAN per year. With this server I can only sell e-mail forwarders but at a very good price.
Buying a sub-domain will allow you to receive all e-mail @fortin.com to an other e-mail address. With this, there is no computer setup, no password or any change. The only change you will need to do is say a different e-mail email@example.com to your friends and contacts. E-mails are not stock or read on the server here. As soon as the fortin.com server receives the e-mail, it forwards it to your e-mail server. With this, you will be able to get firstname.lastname@example.org ( no this one is already taken by my 3½ years old little girl ) and forward it to any e-mail server connected to the internet. It's easier to remember. Also you can get a e-mail address for your cell phone or e-mail pager. It's easier to remember email@example.com than firstname.lastname@example.org.
cost is 5$CAN per e-mail per year for people living in
Please in the envelope, write :
your postal address,
your requested email@example.com
the forward address.
The e-mail will be activated within 48 hours of the reception of the payment.
