What is Virtual Hosting?
Virtual Hosting is where multiple web sites (www.anyname.com) are served off the same physical server. This saves each customer from purchasing their own expensive server, performing the setup and providing the appropriate environment. This is the most common method of hosting sites of small to medium size with light to moderate traffic.

What is Bandwidth?
Bandwidth is the amount of data moved between your site and the browsers of the customer's accessing your site. It is typically measured in Gigabits.

Can I get unlimited bandwidth?
No. We do not offer packages with unlimited bandwidth primarily because there is no such thing. Any one that promises that is not telling the truth. Somewhere in their terms and conditions are probably some words referring to "excessive use of resources", and in effect these place some arbitrary limit on your bandwidth. We set limits to both protect you and to provide you with a reliable quality service.

What are parked domains?
You can set up a domain name that you own to point to another domain name. This is known as "parking" a domain. This is also called domain pointer.

What are Add-On Domains?
Add-On Domains are domain names that point to subdirectories within your account.

Your account will be setup in 12 hours or less or your first month is FREE. You will receive an email with your account information, IP address, user name and password. You can then start uploading your site.

What is CGI?
CGI, Common Gateway Interface, includes programs that run on the server to enhance the quality and functionality of a web site. There are many resources on-line that allow the downloading of free cgi scripts.

( For instance: http://www.hotscripts.com or http://opensourcescripts.com )

Do you allow CGI to run on your servers?
We do allow running of cgi scripts on the servers, however they must conform to our acceptable server resource usage policy. If we deem that a script is using an excessive amount of server resources, it will be disabled.
