HomePage

This isn’t really our homepage as such, that is combined with our Genealogy (family history) websites. We registered this domain name “ellishouse.com” to give us a stable & life long permanent e-mail address but just left the www / web part of the address dormant & pointing to this temporary holding page.

Our activity log for the holding page showed many many hits? Why? People, for various reasons were interested to see what was there! They were looking for Hotels, Guest Houses, Bed & Breakfast Accommodation, Ellis Island genealogy, anything to do with the name Ellis.

So we decided to create this little page as an explanation.

Like many web users we have connected to the Internet through different Broadband providers (ISPs such as Freeserve – AOL – BT – LineOne – NTL ) changing our ISP as prices, quality & availability changed, then been really really pee’d off at the hassle of having to inform the hundreds of people & contacts we had accumulated of the forced change to our e-mail address each time we changed our Internet service provider.

Yes, the email address that you get from your internet provider is “THEIR” address not yours, it stays with them if you decide to leave their company and seek broadband internet access from some other place.

So we registered this domain name (ellishouse.com) for our own personalised internet & email name via GenProxy, but still use the e-mail account supplied by our current ISP and simply overlay their e-mail system with our own domain name. So “ellis66@ntlworld.com” or “rob_ellis42@freeserve.co.uk” now becomes “rob@ellishouse.com” and will remain as “rob@ellishouse.com” for the rest of my life, no matter how many times we have to change Internet Service Providers.

Of course now that we have added the above explanation, visitors also now arrive here because they were searching for information on “permanent email address” or “personal e-mail addresses” or “domain name registration”
