          The accounting page includes all of the following options for managing the Twin Tiers SWE account with
Aplushosting. This is particularly important to our section if the person responsible for our subscription changes.
The charges for the account are $25 per year under the arrangement that we have. This was a special program that
no longer exists, so you will not see information about it on their site any longer. An active credit card must be kept
on file for our account. Aplushosting will notify the email address on record of the pending charges near the end of
January. The card will be charged in early February for the annual fee.

CGI Apps
       CGI applications are tools to be used for web site design. This company offers some that can be used. This
       is not required for site account management, but may be accessed by a designer with permissions to the
       account for use in enhancing the web site.

DNS Domain
      This area allows for the creation of Domain pointers ( have another domain end up at our site) or
      subdomains within the domain. Again, this is an advanced design tool not currently used
      for this site.
EMail Setup
        This area is very important to the website. This is what allows us to have generic names

        This is where the passwords for the account are controlled. The instructions refer to both a control panel
        password and a system password. At the present time, both are the same. It is recommended that these be
        kept the same for the purposes of managing this web site.

Resellers - This is not used for SWE purposes.
           This section offers account holders the opportunity to create Meta tags for the site that make more
           keywords available to search engines. It also allows us to subscribe to a search engine submission service.
           These services are not used at this time. It is not expected to be needed for the purposes of this site.
