ExcellentSite - Features (Page 1/4)
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
Setup includes all parts of establishing your domain name on our network. We register
or transfer your domain with the Internic, setup your account on our server, and
configure the control panel for your account.
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):
One MB of disk space can hold several hundred text pages or images. Many 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
True Domain Name:
Each of our web sites comes with its very own domain name that you decide. 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.
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 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.
Free Domain Registration:
We will send in your registration form to the Internic. The Internic has a separate fee
for annual maintenance of your domain which they will bill you separately.
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.
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.
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.
