- Anonymous FTP
- Enabling anonymous FTP allows visitors to access your web site to upload
and/or download files without a unique id and password. By controllable anonymous FTP,
we are referring to an environment whereby anonymous access can be limited to specific
files and directories.
- Autoresponders reply to incoming e-mail automatically. An autoresponder
could be used to send a standard text file to persons addressing, say, firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you've ever received a response to an e-mail which suggests that the recipient is away
from the office, you may have received such an automated response.
- CGI script support
- All Warp Speed Hosting plans have access to a personal
cgi-local directory in which you can place your own custom CGI scripts. CGI scripts are
often used to accomplish tasks which are not supported by basic HTML such as a
"hit" counter or guest book. This directory can be used to set up scripts that
you write or find elsewhere on the web.
- Control Panel
- All users have access to a web-based Control Panel which allows you to
set mail forwarding options, autoresponders, POP accounts, view statistics and more.
- CyberCash enables you to securely process credit card transactions 24
hours a day, seven days a week to a new global marketplace. CyberCash works with all the
popular browsers, as well as the majority of Internet hardware, software, servers,
communication protocols, and web store applications.
- Data Transfer
- In general, any outward bound traffic from a web site, with the exception
of e-mail, is considered to be data transfer. For example, each time a web page, image,
midi file, quicktime video, etc. is loaded, data transfer is generated. Each of our plans
includes a generous amount of free data transfer which should be more than enough for most
sites. In fact, 98% to 99% of our customers operate within their free data transfer
allowance. Additional data transfer beyond the threshold will incur a small charge.
- Disk Storage Space
- Disk storage space refers to the amount of server disk storage
specifically allocated to your account. This space is used to store your html files,
graphics, audio clips, POP mail messages, pdfs, and other files that make up your web
site. Each of our plans includes a specified allotment of disk storage space, but
additional space can be purchased for any account in 5MB blocks at a cost of $1/MB per
- Domain Name Registration
- We offer virtual domain Web hosting accounts which means you can have
your own Web address or "domain name" (eg: www.yourname.com). We can handle U.S.
domain name registration or transfers on your behalf. (ie: .com, .net, .org, etc.). The
InterNIC charges $70 to register a domain name which covers the first two years. They
currently bill at a rate of $35 per year thereafter.
We can also
serve non-U.S. domain names as well. We can provide you with the appropriate nameserver
and technical contact information to assist you in registering a non-U.S. domain
name with your local NIC.
You can also have additional domain names point to your account for a
small additional charge.
- Excite is a new generation of web navigation. It gives your web site the
same advanced search capabilities used by the Excite service, allowing visitors to search
your web site using keywords or concepts.
- FTP Access
- You will have unlimited access to your account via FTP 24-hours a day to
set up and maintain your web site. You can work on HTML documents, graphics, and scripts
locally and then upload files to your web site when ready. An FTP tutorial and client
software is available in our online support.
- We can install Microsoft FrontPage extensions for your account. This
allows you to use the easy-to-use Microsoft FrontPage program to create and maintain your
web site. You may request that FrontPage extensions be installed within your web site when
placing an order for domain web hosting services or contact our support department
directly. Microsoft provides direct support for all FrontPage users.
- Mail Forwarding
- Once your domain name is active worldwide, you can receive all e-mail
addressed to your domain such as email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, etc. By
default, all e-mail addressed to your domain will forward to your real e-mail
address provided by your local internet provider. For convenience, specific mail
forwarding options are available if you need specific addresses each to be forwarded to
different addresses on the internet. For example, e-mail addressed to
email@example.com could forward to an account at AOL, but firstname.lastname@example.org could
forward to a Prodigy account.
- MySQL Database Server
- MySQL, is a lightweight database engine designed to provide fast access
to stored data. We provide the tools to create a searchable database. In most instances,
custom programming (commonly Perl or PHP) is needed to implement a fully functional
- POP Accounts
- In addition to mail forwarding, users have the option to retrieve e-mail
directly from POP3 mailboxes on the mail server using an email program such as Eudora.
Each of our plans includes a Master POP account which can receive all email and control
the settings for any optional configurable POP accounts. Each of our plans also offers a
specified number of configurable POP accounts. The additional POPs can be assigned unique
ids and passwords to ensure privacy. You can also purchase additional POPs if needed.
- Real Networks' RealAudio
system is a client-server based streaming media delivery system for the Internet.
Providers of news, entertainment, sports, and business content can create and deliver
audio-based streaming multimedia content through the Internet to audiences worldwide. We
not only provide the server extensions but also include step by step instructions to
include RealAudio in your web pages.
- Shopping Cart
- A Shopping Cart program allows you to implement your own on-line
storefront. The shopping cart keeps track of what visitors have ordered and allows them to
add or remove items from a 'virtual shopping cart'. When a visitor decides to check-out,
the order information including the buyer's name, address and billing instruction is
e-mailed to the site webmaster and a receipt is sent to the shopper. Our unix Corporate
Plan and above include a pre-written Shopping Cart script that you can customize for your
use. A demonstration and extensive documentation are available.
- SSL Secure Server
- SSL (Secure Socket Layer) allows users to collect data such as credit
card information in a secure environment. Information submitted via a secure form
is sent to the server in an encrypted mode. Users may choose to research methods such as
encrypted email (PGP), CyberCash, or other solution for retrieving such information from
their web sites.
- We give you a choice of using MKStats1.0, MKStats 2.1, or Analog to track
your web usage statistics such as what domains are accessing your web site, how many
"hits" you are getting, how much data is being transferred and more. In
addition, we give you direct access to your raw log files so you can analyze your
statistics with other more full-featured programs.
- TrueSpeech is a high quality speech compression software which compresses
speech down to as much as 1/40th its original size. Since regular speech files are
normally large, compression using TrueSpeech enables them to be transferred faster and
more easily. Support for TrueSpeech real-time audio is available for use in your web
- Volano Chat
- Volano Chat is a real-time, live chat interface you can quickly and
easily add to your web site. It is written in JAVA so it is compatible with the vast
majority of web browsers without the need for any plug-ins.
