Is there any special deal for Islandnet.com customers?
Yes! If you are using the FREE subscription on a web site that is hosted at Islandnet.com then you get a few extra perks:
What is a “hit”?
Any time a webthumb image gets served to you, it is a “hit”. It doesn’t matter if your request results in a re-capture of the web page or if it’s already in our cache. You can reduce the number of hits on our server by caching the results on your end.
I’m displaying webthumbs on my secure web page, and now I get security warnings!
If the page you’re displaying web thumbs on is accessed via HTTPS and the image references use HTTP then your browser may complain that some content is “insecure”. The solution is to use https://webthumbs.islandnet.com/api… instead of http://webthumbs.ca/api… in your webthumb URLs. This works exactly the same way and loads the same image, except it uses our parent company’s SSL certificate.
Is it possible to customize the watermark text, or remove it completely?
Absolutely! Check out our paid plans for more details.
I don’t want you to make webthumbs of my web site!
No problem. We have a “do not capture” list, and if you contact us with your web site details we’ll add you to it.

You can cancel your paid subscription at any time by logging into your account and clicking “Change Subscription”.
