Individual Homepage Service
All Individual Members are provided with homepage space in which to create their personal homepage.
The amount of homepage space depends on the pricing Plan the member is using, and as long as the member keeps the total size of the files in their homepage space within the amount of homepage space allocated, there will be no additional charge from Asahi Net. However, should the total exceed the allocated size, a charge will apply. See below for more detailed information.
In addition, several CGI files have been prepared for members to use: Access Counter, Form Decode and Bulletin Board.
There are two types of homepage address available.
- http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~User ID
- http://www.ne.jp/asahi/Your/Choice (our FreeAddress service)
It is possible to release a homepage for each address, however, your homepage space will be calculated based on
the total space usage for both addresses.

The size of the homepage space depends on the Course and Plan the member is using. Should the total size of files in the homepage space exceed the allocated size, an additional homepages space usage charge will apply.

About Commercial Business Usage
Commercial or profit-motivated material is permitted in Individual member's homepages, but only as dictated by the Asahi Net Individual Home Page Service Agreement. Basically, if you choose to put material of a commercial nature in your homepage space you are bound to take full responsibility for doing so.
If you are interested in having outright commercial content while using some homepage features not available within the homepage space available to Individual members, our Web Hosting service allows you to host a Web site under Asahi Net's MMJP domain name, e.g. http://www.mmjp.or.jp/yourcompany, or under your company's own Virtual domain name, e.g. http://www.yourcompany.com. If you need more information than is available on our Business Services Web site, please contact our office.
Please read this agreement before using the homepage service.

About excess homepage usage
How homepage space usage is calculated
In order for your homepage to function properly, each file is assigned 4 Kilobytes of space to be used for indexing, directories, etc. Therefore, the amount of space used to host your homepage is in fact larger than the combined size of all your files. Note: 1 Megabyte is equal to 1,024 Kilobytes.
Please use this link to confirm your current homepage space usage.
>> Confirm personal homepage space usage
(Your Asahi Net ID and password are required)
Homepage space excess
On an arbitrary date between the 1st and 15th of every month, Asahi Net measures the amount of disk space used, and charges accordingly for excess homepage space usage. If your homepage usage exceeds the amount of homepage space allocated to the Asahi Net Course and Plan you are using, excess usage charges will be made at a rate of 180 yen (excluding tax) per 5MB unit of excess.
