Account Features Explained

We offer the leading features in the industry. They are explained in detail below. Not all of the virtual accounts we offer include the features explained below. For the breakdown, look at our price table.

One time Setup:
Setup includes all parts of establishing your domain name on our network. We register your domain with InterNIC, setup your account on our server, assign an IP and configure the Control Panel for your account.

Email Addresses:
Our email addresses are very flexible. You can set them up as POP boxes which store mail, email aliases which redirect mail to another box, or as autoresponders.

Disk Space (MB):
Fifty MB of disk space can hold several thousand text pages or images. Most sites use less than three MB of disk space.

Data Transfer:
This is the amount of network traffic related to your domain. A large number of sites have less than 1000MB of traffic per month, but popular sites could use three or four times that.

True Domain Name:
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, or 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.

30 Day Money Back Guarantee:
We offer a full refund (including setup fees) to customers who decide to discontinue our services within thirty (30) days of signing up. Accounts cancelled after thirty (30) days will not be eligible for any refunds. Accounts purchased under special offers are only eligible for a refund of the hosting fees (within 30 days), the setup fees will not be refunded.

Note: All charges for Domain Registration are non-refundable.

Static IP Address:
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 one IP address. A static IP address provides your site with a never-changing solid address, which allows you to use it when FTPing files, pinging your site, etc.

Web Site Builder:
The Web Site Builder is a software that allows users to build customized, easily updated websites within minutes. No need to learn HTML or any other web site programming languages. Imagine setting up your own web site yourself with just a few clicks of a mouse.

File Manager:
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 using the File Manager. Plus, you can edit HTML code in any of your files from this option. Everything you need to manage your site can be found in this feature.

Web Based Email:
Web Mail Check is an email access program that provides a convenient way to manage email and works in conjunction with the Mail Manager tool in the
Control Panel. Webmail uses your existing POP3 mailboxes. Web Mail Check has many different user-friendly email options including the following: compose mail, check new mail, delete selected mail, online address book, logout and more. Clients can read and send mail from any computer that is connected to a web browser (Netscape Navigator, Internet Explorer, AOL).

Archive Manager:
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.

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.

PHP 4.0:
PHP is a server-side HTML embedded scripting language that was developed in C and is designed especially for working with relational database systems like MySQL. PHP program is embedded directly in the HTML document. It must have a .phtml extension in order for our servers to look for PHP code in the document. 

Java Servlets :
Java Servlets provide web developers with a simple, consistent mechanism for extending the functionality of a web server and for accessing existing business systems. 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. They have access to the entire family of Java APIs to access enterprise databases. Servlets can also access a library of HTTP-specific calls and receive all the benefits of the mature Java language, including portability, performance and reusability.

State of the art NOC:
At we realize that down time is not an option for your server. We have invested heavily in hardware and facilities to ensure that your site will remain up and running on the web 24 hours a day, seven days a week. web servers are custom-built industrial grade machines designed for a 24/7 web serving environment. Our Network Operations Center (NOC) is equipped with raised flooring, fire prevention, standby machines, industry-leading Liebert Uninterruptable Power Supplies (UPS) and a temperature-controlled environment, all located in a secure, monitored facility.

Daily Backup: performs automated daily backups of all servers- a daily incremental back up and a weekly full backup. The full backups are placed onto tapes and are stored for two weeks while the incremental backups are stored onto disk and kept until the next full backup is performed.

24/7 Monitoring:
Your server is monitored internally and externally on all the standard ports. If the monitor cannot restart a failed port, a technician is notified and attends to the problem immediately

Processor Type:
We always use the latest Intel processors in every machine. As a large ISP, we dialogue on a continual basis with Intel researchers as to which future products will best fit our needs.

Standby Server:
A hallmark of our service and one of the reasons for our fantastic uptime is our policy of having servers on standby. In the event of a server failure, there are always additional servers on standby. We swap the drive of the failed server to a new one, and do the diagnosis on the failed machine later.

Redundant Power Backup:
Two 50 kilowatt 480Volt Liebert UPS's supply conditioned power to our main PDU (power distribution unit), which continually balances and monitors every aspect of the power supplied to the NOC, leaving little doubt we could ever be down due to a  power failure.

Macromedia Shockwave allows you to bring your web content to life. Shockwave support allows your site to host Shockwave content.

Midi Files:
Midi is a great way to add sound to a web site without using lots of bandwidth. All the popular MIDI mime types are supported on our domain.

Real Audio:
We support real audio/video streaming for no extra charge.

When 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.

Real Video:
We support Video streaming with the Real Video Mime type as explained above.

MIME Type Manager:
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 control panel.
