DevNet has hosted many local websites for government, educational and private sector entities and NGOs. Currently we only host a few sites for our own projects.
Domain names are the names used to identify computer systems, web sites and email addresses on the internet. For example 'devnet.org.gy' is a domain name. They can be broken into parts e.g. 'gy' is the top level domain (TLD) for Guyana, 'org' indicates it belongs to a non-commercial organisation and 'sdnp' is the name of the organisation.
If someone wishes to have their own domain name for a web site or for email then they must first apply to register the domain name with a domain name registrar (depending on what domain it is) and, secondly, they must submit the name in their request to the service provider who is to host the web site or provide mail service. Fees are usually charged for both steps and need to be paid to maintain the domain or it will be deleted.
All domain name requests must be directed to the GY registry.
The services available, subject to agreement with the client, are as advertised on our website. DevNet undertakes to make these services available on a 24x7 basis at 99.9% availability.

The client is responsible for ensuring that payment of fees is made by the 15th of each month unless otherwise agreed. If no payment is received by the end of the month then the account may be suspended and the website taken down.

The client agrees that they are solely responsible for all acts, omissions and use under and charges incurred with the account or password or in connection with the site or content displayed, linked, transmitted through or stored on the server.
