• about us

    Hatched from humble beginnings in 1998, Excess Mojo's predecessor, ThirdBrew, took to the web with the simplest of missions, to make excellent websites. After years of accomplishing this, ThirdBrew caught the attention of Webiphy, an up and coming company providing Internet solutions.

    Together they formed a new mission to capture a market share as a foremost provider of Internet solutions and graphics design.


    Few companies, cover the gamut of what is necessary to put up a 1st class web presence. Most commonly found is the lack of a particular skill, such as Graphic Design or Information Architecture. Without a sound process and keen ability to produce quality at every level, a poor product is more often the result.

    Here at Excess Mojo our staff offers a variety of resources, and because our process is well designed itself, we ensure each specialty is conducted on your behalf in a fast, thorough, and fluid manner. Always striving to make sure the results you see are from our communication, not miscommunication.

  • Why do we use domain names?

    Internet-connected computers use a numeric addressing system to locate other computers on the network. This numeric addressing system requires that each computer connected to the Internet have its own unique, numeric address called an Internet Protocol (or IP) number. An IP number is a set of 4 byte/numbers (from 0 to 255); each separated by a period (for example: Computers, of course, have no problem remembering and using numerical addresses. People, on the other hand, generally find it easier to remember words.


  • Can an organization have an IP address?

    Yes. In the event that IP addresses are allocated to an organization, it must be stipulated that the addresses are allocated on the basis that they will only be routed through Excess Mojo. The ownership of addresses is not transferred when allocation takes place; addresses are "leased" at no cost to the organization for the period that they remain Excess Mojo clients.

    The reasons for address leasing are purely technical. Due to the explosive expansion of the Internet, routing tables on the Internet backbone and exchange routers are becoming very large. In an attempt to reduce the number of routing entries, allocation of IP addresses is done in blocks called CIDR blocks. Modern routing protocols like BGP-4 summarize and reduce the number of routing entries by only passing on the routing information of the blocks, as opposed to routing information on the individual addresses within the block. For example, Excess Mojo has been allocated 255 class C addresses in a block that can be routed as a single routing entry instead of 255 individual routes.

    If customers use the addresses allocated by Excess Mojo with other ISPs, the more specific routing information of the 255 individual networks will have to be propagated. In an attempt to stop this kind of action from taking place and to keep the CIDR blocks from fragmenting, certain backbone providers are now filtering routing updates in such a way that more specific routing entries for networks that are part of CIDR blocks are barred. This means that IP addresses allocated by Excess Mojo will not work with other ISPs. This is a technical rule of thumb that applies to just about all ISPs.


  • What is a domain name?

    A domain name is a unique address that identifies a computer or network, which is connected to the Internet. In short, a domain name is your Internet address online, as in excessmojo.com for example, which is the domain name for Excess Mojo.


  • What is DNS?

    The network, however, must use the numerical address. An intermediary system, called the Domain Name System (DNS), translates the domain names used by people into the numbers used by the network. This way, when an Internet user types in www.excessmojo.com, the Domain Name System translates the name into the corresponding IP number and connects the user with the computer at the other end.


  • What should I keep in mind when picking a domain name?

    How easy is the name to use and remember? You want to select a name that will be easy for your customers and business partners to remember. The obvious choice would be to use your business name. If your first choice name has already been taken, or your trading name does not lend itself to being a domain name, you may consider a generic name or an abbreviation of your company name. Consider these questions: How is the name aesthetically? How good or bad does it look in print, a business card or corporate brochure?


  • What characters can be used to form a domain name?

    A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0
    dash (-),

    An address must begin and end with an alphanumeric character. Punctuation characters must not be placed together. Domain names are not case sensitive. Spaces are not permitted.


  • Will Excess Mojo transfer/register a new domain name?

    Excess Mojo is able to register a domain on the customer's behalf. The costs are as follows:

    • $35 for a .com, net, org ($25 per annual renewal)
    • Excess Mojo will transfer a domain at $25 per domain.
    • Transfer of 10 or more domains will be discounted accordingly.
    • Excess Mojo will transfer a domain as part of the normal setup fee in a New Client Agreement.

    If a customer does not have other billable services with Excess Mojo, Excess Mojo will require a credit card or debit order authorization to facilitate the initial and annual payments in respect of the registered domain name(s).


  • How long does it take to register a new domain name through Excess Mojo?

    It normally takes 24 hours.


  • How do I register a domain name?

    See the attachments for the forms you need to fill in order for you to register a domain name through Excess Mojo.

    Click here to check for the existence of a specific domain name in .com, .net or .org

    For help in domain name registration send mail to help@excessmojo.com.


  • What does it cost to register a domain name?

    Excess Mojo charges $20 plus the current yearly domain name fee for domain registration. This fee is made up of administration, registration and machine usage costs.


  • How do I transfer an existing domain name to Excess Mojo?

    Excess Mojo can arrange for existing domains to be transferred across to us. We will apply to the registration authority to get the domain transferred to Excess Mojo. The owner of the domain (we are assuming here that this is you) needs to notify the ISP who currently holds the domain of the transfer. The ISP needs to accept the domain name transfer request.

    When someone applies for a domain name to be transferred, the ISP that currently holds the domain and the people that the domain belongs to, are notified via the registration authority (for example Directnic, in the case of Excess Mojo domain names) that the domain needs to be moved across to Excess Mojo's name servers. At least one person has to reply to the registration authority to acknowledge the request within 24 hours, else the request gets denied. This is very important - often people ask why their domain has not appeared on our name servers and the most common answer is that no one has acknowledged the transfer request confirmation message that the registration authority sends out. Also, any "deny" responses to the registration authority veto the process.


  • Once my domain name is registered, how do I start using it?

    Please send mail to support@excessmojo.com with the details of the DNS entries you would like to have defined in your domain name's zone file. These will typically include things like the IP address of your Web site, the address of your mail server etc. DNS propagation takes up to 24 hours - after that, your DNS entries will be visible worldwide and your domain name will be "active".


  • Can I register more than one domain name?

    Yes, you can register as many domain names as you like. These can be aliased to one another if required. Be careful not to confuse your (potential) online customers with too many domain names.


  • Once registered, is the domain name mine for life?

    Yes, providing you pay the annual renewal fee to the regulating authority.


  • Can I change my domain name?

    No, you will have to register a new domain name. Your old domain name can be left to expire, or you can alias it to your new domain name. Please note that domain names are never changed, only created or deleted.


  • What is hosting and why would I use it?

    Excess Mojo Hosting offers comprehensive hosting solutions for Web sites and other Internet applications, on the Excess Mojo network. There are two general services in Web hosting, these being shared and dedicated hosting solutions. The shared solutions allow for Web site hosting using servers provided by Excess Mojo. One of these servers will host multiple customers, all with similar technical hosting requirements. Each customer's configuration is referred to as a virtual host, or V-Host. Many V-Hosts may reside on one shared server.


  • How do I build a web site?

    The Excess Mojo Hosting Profile Solution:

    The Profile Solution - is used by customers who require a simple Web site. A Profile solution can be edited/updated in one of two methods: either with FrontPage or FTP (not with both).

    FrontPage Hosting - The "Profile" solution offered by Excess Mojo Hosting allows customers to build a Web site using FrontPage 98, and simply publish their Web site to our shared servers. The extensions and all the built-in functionality of FrontPage are retained - allowing our customers to build a fairly comprehensive Web site with all of the support of the FrontPage package.

    FTP - File Transfer Protocol is the method used for uploading files to Excess Mojo Hosting's shared servers if not using FrontPage 98. FTP allows customers, with Internet connection, to upload and maintain their own Web site. CuteFTP and FTP Explorer are examples of FTP software, which give customers an easy to use interface to their Web site.


  • What operating system will I need?

    The choice of operating system for the server will need to be carefully considered in the light of the current IT policy and proficiencies. Another major factor affecting choice is the nature of the current internal e-mail system. In general, where a customer would prefer the smallest expense and the highest uptime, without supporting the system internally, a public domain Linux-based e-mail, DNS and Web server is suggested.


  • I have a web site. How can Excess Mojo help me to Host it?

    There are various solutions - from uploading the web site using Front Page, to more sophisticated services utilizing their own data base & server. For more information see the section on hosting on our web site or email help@excessmojo.com.


  • I have built a web site for a friend. How can Excess Mojo help me to Host it?

    There are various solutions - from uploading the web site using front page, to more sophisticated services utilizing their own database & server.


  • What can Excess Mojo do to secure my web site?

    One of the ways of securing transferred information would be to install a SSL Certificate (Secure Socket Layer). This certificate may be purchased from Verisign (Saca.net)


  • What is a security policy and why should my company have one?

    Network security is a very important component of network implementation, especially when connecting to the Internet. It is therefore vital that an organization draft a security policy in which the issues relating to the planning and administration of their network securities should be outlined. The document you compile should at least consider the following issues:

    • Analysis of risks versus costs of security implementation
    • Plans for disaster
    • Security rules and policies for employees
    • Backups
    • Security audits

    It is important to realize that good planning and implementation is the best form of preventing a security incident and that the more prepared you are the more likely you will avoid a security incident.


  • I'm nervous about giving out my credit card number over the Internet. What must I look out for to be sure that an online transaction is safe?

    Look for a small padlock at the bottom of the screen. This indicates that the site is secure and safe to trade in.


  • How can I make my password more secure?

    Weak passwords are one of the most common methods through which intruders gain unauthorized access to servers and routers. It is important to realize that although encrypted passwords cannot be reversed to produce the plain-text password, there are numerous password-cracking programs that use a dictionary approach to guess passwords. A good password policy is therefore recommended. All users making use of a particular system should adhere to the policy since the level of security of the system is determined by the weakest password used. The following outline can be used as a model for a network password policy. Passwords should be changed every month. Passwords to avoid using, include:

    • Common or proper nouns
    • Phone numbers
    • Passwords of the same character
    • Dictionary words (this includes foreign and technical dictionaries)
    • Simple keyboard patterns
    • Any of the above reversed or concatenated
    • Any of the above with digits prepended or appended.

    Passwords should be a minimum of six characters long and should contain upper and lower case characters and numbers or punctuation characters. A good method for choosing a password is to make up your own acronym. For example, "do not use easy Passwords on This Server" would be converted to the password "dNuePoTS


  • How can I host a database on the Internet?

    The Excess Mojo Hosting Media Solution - A shared solution:

    The Media solution is used by customers who wish to store and utilize a database on the Internet, and allow their Web site to interact with this database.

    ASP - Active Server Pages is a programming language which is supported by the Media solution, allowing customers the ability to write scripts that will interface with their database, or files on their Web site. As the server is shared, all scripting written by customers must be vetted by Excess Mojo Hosting staff, ensuring that the scripts are stable, and do not interfere with other customers' Web sites.

    SQL server database - The Media solution allows for the hosting of a database. As the Media solution is a shared solution Excess Mojo has standardized on a single robust database for all customers to make use of. The SQL server database is currently the database that has been implemented for the Media solutions.

    The structure of directories on the Media solution is as follows:

    • Directory: scripts (ASP execute directory. No write access by user.)
    • Directory: uploads (Upload directory. No ASP execution, but user has write access.)
    • Directory: root (The root directory of the media solution. User has write access and no ASP execute rights.)


  • What is an ASP?

    In the business community, ASP means Application Service Provider. The ASP Industry Consortium defines an Application Service Provider as the organization that manages and delivers application capabilities to multiple entities (companies) from a data center across a wide area network.

    Instead of purchasing their own software, for different departments such as HR, Payroll, Accounting, Systems etc - companies "rent" and share usage of these systems from ASP's. This allows even small and medium sized enterprises to afford potentially expensive systems and be able to compete with traditionally large organizations locally and globally.

    Excess Mojo has an in house ASP providing Microsoft Office and Microsoft Exchange to customers over a network. Excess Mojo also has a range of ASP partners who offer other applications over the Excess Mojo network.

    You should NOT confuse the business term ASP with the technical term ASP. In technical terms, ASP means Active Server Pages and has to do with web programming (simply put) and is usually deployed on Web Servers running on a Microsoft platform.


  • What is an ISP?

    ISP is the common term used to refer to the company that provides your Internet connectivity. ISP stands for Internet Service Provider. Internet Service Providers provide the infrastructure on which Application Service Provider (ASP's) deploy applications for use by companies and individual users.

    Excess Mojo is both an ISP and an ASP.
