This is the amount of network
traffic related to your domain. A large number of sites have less than

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.di.to. 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.
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.

need to manage your site can be found in this feature.
The Archive Manager will allow
the user to backup and compress their files. For example, if you have a

the files, then create a backup file that contains all of them in
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

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.

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.

to assure your data is restored quickly in the event of a drive failure.

server, and you can even use their free tools to create streaming audio

types gives you full control of which software programs will work with
your site. Mime types are managed through the control panel.
