Core Features – Lite Web Hosting Plan
500 MB Disk Space
Disk space is the amount of space that is utilized on the servers. For example, if you uploaded ten 50MB files, you will have used 500MB of disk space.
5 GB data transfer limit
Data transfer occurs when information is downloaded from your web site. For instance, if you have one web page with five images on the page, each image must be downloaded so that your visitor can view the page. This is why it is important to optimize media-rich sites so that bandwidth is not wasted. Web sites that have high-quality images and movies for download require more bandwidth, whereas informational sites that mainly just have text hardly use up any bandwidth. However, this figure also depends on how much traffic, or hits, your site receives per month.
Hosting for 1 domain name (DNS Included)
Hosting for one domain is included. If you have other domains, you can use domain forwarding to redirect them into your main site.
Standard SSL Certificate
If you’re just starting up or don’t wish to purchase your own SSL certificate, we can provide a free and open certificate authority brought to you by the non-profit Internet Security Research Group (ISRG) allowing you to accept data securely.
Customizable Error Pages
Configure your own custom error pages to present to your visitors in the event they reach a page that no longer exists.
Multiple Site Discounts
We provide discounts to those that host multiple websites with us. We apply a 5% discount for 2-4 sites, and 10% for 5 and above. Additionally, we offer a $99/web site deal for 5 or more sites if you wish to prepay.
E-mail and Phone Support
As with all Acceleration services, we provide excellent e-mail and phone support. Already have a question? Give us a call at (800) 655-6505 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Mailboxes are accounts that store mail on your domain. For instance, if your domain was wonderfulwebwidgets.com, one mailbox could be named email@example.com, and another could be firstname.lastname@example.org, for a total of 2 used mailboxes.
500 MB storage limit per mailbox
This is the amount of mail storage each individual mailbox is allowed to use.
100 outbound e-mails per day per mailbox
This is the amount of e-mail messages that can be sent out per day. Each recipient is counted as one increment.
100 MB sending/receiving attachment size limit
The size of attachments you are allowed to send or receive via e-mail.
POP3, IMAP, and SMTP protocols supported
POP3 (Post Office Protocol, version 3) is a protocol which allows for e-mail clients such as Outlook to download messages.
Internet Message Access Protocol, or IMAP for short, is a protocol which allows e-mail clients such as Outlook to read mail stored on a mail server. The advantage IMAP has over POP3 is that you can keep your mail stored in a central location, along with folders, on the mail server.
SMTP (Simple Mail Transport Protocol) is a protocol which allows for e-mail to be sent from one computer to another.
WebMail (encrypted with SSL)
WebMail is browser-based interface that allows you to check your e-mail from any location that has internet access.
Mailing list support
Mailing lists allow for people to collaborate via e-mail to a group of subscribers on the list. You can also use a mailing list to send out newsletters, just by sending one e-mail message to the mailing list address, which will send the message off to all subscribers of your mailing list.
Management Control Panel
Manage mailboxes for your domain with our mail management control panel. Adding, removing, and modifying accounts will be easily available to you.
Domain and single-user aliasing
If you’d like to have one mailbox honor multiple aliased names, you can use this feature. For example, if you have the mailbox email@example.com, you can create aliases ‘onlinesales’ and ‘salesdepartment’ for the mailbox, and people attempting to e-mail either of the three names will have mail delivered into the firstname.lastname@example.org mailbox.
Content filtering options
This powerful system allows you to accept, reject, or delete e-mails that fit certain criteria.
We have several anti-spam options available. You can either have messages that appear to be spam have the subject line tagged with “[Spam]” in the subject line, reject messages that appear to be spam, or have messages placed into a Spam folder.
Going out of town on a vacation or business trip for a while, or just want an automated response when someone e-mails a mailbox? Setup an auto-responder! Flexibility options include how often to respond, only if the message is to that mailbox (does not trigger for carbon-copied messages), and if the e-mail is received within a certain date range.
A catch-all account is an account that is configured to store any e-mail that was destined for an address that does not exist. For instance, if you have a catch-all account of email@example.com configured, and someone tries to send to firstname.lastname@example.org but the account doesn’t exist, mail will be placed in the email@example.com account.
Active Server Pages, or ASP, is a server-side script engine for dynamically-generated web pages.
Microsoft.NET 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.5 & 4.0
Microsoft .NET is a framework that allows developers to utilize pre-coded solutions to generate applications quickly. Most web-based applications are written in the ASP.NET framework, which is part of Microsoft’s .NET platform. We support both .NET version 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, and 3.5.
Perl is a dynamic programming language first released in 1987. It is a very powerful language, but not used as much now for creating web-based applications as other languages such as ASP.NET and PHP are geared more towards web applications.
PHP is a programming language designed for producing dynamic web pages. PHP supports a large number of components, allowing you to program things like accessing a database, image manipulations, and sending e-mails.
Python is a dynamic object-oriented programming language that is flexible enough to be used for all kinds of development needs, yet easy enough to comprehend as a beginning or seasoned programmer.
Microsoft Access is a relational database management system which combines the relational Microsoft Jet Database Engine with a graphical user interface and software development tools. It is used by some web developers to store data, although not as widely used as other databases such as MySQL and Microsoft SQL.
Web Traffic Analysis
AWStats log analyzer
AWStats is a powerful tool that generates advanced web statistics that are easy to analyze. AWStats allows you to view how many visitors each month are visiting your web site, what pages are the most popular, which keywords in search engines are bringing visitors to your site, and from which country they’re viewing from.
Log files are the files that the web server generates when people visit your website. If you have your own log file analysis software, you can load your raw log files into the software and generate reports.
File Transfer Methods
2 accounts supporting
FTPS secure FTP access
File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is a protocol that allows for files to be transferred from one computer to another. FTP is the standard method for transferring files, and almost all web design software programs support FTP, such as Dreamweaver, FrontPage, and Coffe Cup.
Customizable folders & permissions
Each account has the option to have a different starting location. For instance, if you wish to create a guest user that can only upload images into your images folder, you can specify the user to start (and stay) in the images folder. In addition to folder locations, you can also specify what permissions the user has, so if you only wish for the user to write data but not read data, this can be configured as well.
All hosting plans utilize RAID storage arrays to store your data. RAID arrays have the benefit of keeping your data available even when a hard drive may fail.
We backup your web data nightly in case you wish to recover an item that you may have recently deleted.
We monitor all of our servers to ensure that your web site has the highest level of availability possible.
All of our servers are placed on our battery backup system (also known as a UPS). A UPS provides clean continuous power in case of a temporary power failure or a power spike.
Should we have a continued power outage, our backup generator will automatically turn on and sustain power to our infrastructure until normal power is resumed.
