Before You Connect

When you sign up with an ISP, both you and the ISP have to provide certain information to each other. You provide your name, address, and credit card number; your ISP provides a variety of semi-technical information, including

  • Your username and password

  • Your email address

    tip

    For most ISPs, your username, email account name, and the first half of your email address will all be the same. It's also likely that you will be assigned a single password for both your initial login and email access.


  • The names of the ISP's incoming and outgoing mail servers

  • Your email account name and password

  • The name of your ISP's Usenet news server

  • The phone number to dial into (if you're using a dial-up connection)
