Each of our web sites comes with its very own domain name that you decide.
So, for example, the name of the web site might be www.abcdef.com,
A true domain is when you get your very own unique IP address
on the web server. Many hosts offer 'fake virtual' domain accounts, which
means they fool most browsers into redirecting themselves to the correct
directory on the server. This method only works with certain browsers,
is not full featured and is not a professional solution.
Each account comes with a static IP address. A static IP address means
the IP address (the number of your site) never changes. Some hosting companies
use dynamic IP addressing, which means the IP number is different each
and every time you connect to the server or they have several domains
use 1 IP address. A static IP address provides your site with a never-changing
solid address, which allows you to use it when FTPing files, or pinging
your site, etc. A static IP allows you to have a true domain name.
Every hosting package comes with the option of registering a domain name.
We can host domain names with any extension, including all international
extensions. In addition we can also register .com, .net, and .org addresses
for you at a significant discount over standard registrar fees. As a bonus
for our customers, we will configure all domains you register through us at no additional charge.
The File Manager is a very powerful feature. It allows you to manipulate
all the files in your web site. You are able to create, delete, and move
your files. You can also upload files from your local PC to the server
in File Manager. Plus, you can edit the HTML in any of your files from
this option. Everything you need to manage your site can be found in this
The Archive Manager will allow the user to backup and compress their files.
For example, if you have a number of files for which you wish to keep
a backup, you can select all the files, then create a backup file that
contains all of them in compressed format.
FTP is used to upload and download files. Almost all site design programs
like Adobe Pagemill, Macromedia Dreamweaver, GoLive HotDog, Allaire HomeSite,
CyberStudio, HotMetal Pro, Netscape Communicator and NetObjects Fusion
use FTP to maintain your site.
Many users are not at all familiar with telnet and just as many do not
need to use it. Telnet allows you to get a shell on our Linux servers.
The implementation of telnet that we use is called SSH. To use telnet
(SSH), we require the user to send us a fax with a copy of their photo
ID requesting SSH. Users also need an RSA Key entered in the control panel
in order to access it. We also require the user to use SSH software.
2000 and 2002
Frontpage is a Microsoft page creation tool that requires special server
extensions to function properly. All packages come with these extensions.
This feature is activated through your control panel.
to raw logs
If you prefer to use your own statistic analyis program, access to your
raw logs is very important.
Anonymous FTP allows visitors to your site to download files via ftp without
a password. It is disabled by default, and you activate it through your
control panel. Available for all packages except the Lite Host.
Mailing lists allow you to send email to a large number of contacts in

You can use the control panel to specify which users are allowed to access
certain pages on your site. When visitors click on a certain URL, they
are requested to enter a username and password which you manage through
the control panel.
Our special form to email program takes the contents of a form submission
and emails you the results to the address you specify.

key to encrypt the message before sending it to you. Your PGP key is installed
with the control panel.
Our very slick looking access counters can be installed on as many pages
as you choose at no extra charge.
The ServletManager is used to install or remove support for Java Servlets.
Servlets are protocol and platform-independent server-side components,
written in Java, that dynamically extend Java-enabled servers, without
the performance limitations of CGI programs.
We encourage development of highly interactive, successful sites. For
your site to be truly interactive you need to be able to run computer
programs in your own cgi-bin, standard with all packages.
C, SH, Java, Python
We have enjoyed being the clear choice for computer programmers building
web sites. For this reason, we always give programmers the most recent
versions of the hottest programs needed to build their web applications.

tools and design projects are done by our staff in PHP. PHP is compiled

Server / Secure Certificates
You may choose to use our secure certificate for either the e-Commerce
or Reseller Packages at no additional cost. This way, you do not have
to purchase your own SSL Certificate from Thawte (you would be using https://servername.com/yourdomain/page.html).
you would prefer to perform secure transactions on the web using https://yourdomain.com
(instead of the path we mention in the above paragraph), you must acquire
a secure certificate from Thawte or Verisign. You can generate the Certificate
Signing Request (CSR) and install the certificate with your Control Panel.

We do not have a real audio/video server. However, we do support real
audio/video streaming for no extra charge.
Real Audio/Video first came out, it required an audio/video server to
be installed on the web server. This was because Real Audio/Video wanted
to charge for each "stream'" or visitor. But soon people started
writing competitive audio/video streaming technology that didn't require
a special server. So, to compete, Real Audio/Video now does not require
a server, and you can even use their free tools to create streaming audio
over the Internet.
We support Video streaming with the Real Video Mime type as explained
The ability to manage mime types gives you full control of which software
programs will work with your site. Mime types are managed through the
