we do not allow Telnet. We do allow Telnet SSH which requires SSH software.

building a basic site in about one hour without any additional software? You got it. Simply point and click your way through hundreds of options, navigational preferences and images. It's all there. At last, designing your web site has never been easier!
Track your hits, pageviews, most popular pages and
referral sites in an easy-to-use stats program.
Our e-mail addresses
are very flexible. You can set them up as POP boxes which store mail, e-mail aliases which redirect mail to another box, or as autoresponders.
Disk Space (MB):
One MB of disk space
can hold several hundred text pages or images. Most sites use less than one MB of disk space.
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 www.yourbusiness.com, or www.mybusiness.net or www.di.to. Every site comes with its own
unique domain name that you choose.
Static IP Address:
Each account comes with a static IP address, except for the
Starter Plan. 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.
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.
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 feature.

file that contains all of them in compressed format.

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.
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.

We also require the user to use SSH software.

We do not have a real
audio/video server. However, we do 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.
We support Video streaming with
the Real Video Mime type as explained above.

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.
