What domain names do you support?
We support all TLD (top level) domains (.com, .net., .org, .INFO, .BIZ) including
foreign (2-letters) domain extentions.
Can I host multiple domains under single plan?
Almost all our cheap web hosting accounts have the ability to support multiple
domain names pointing to separate directories (web sites) within your main account.
We call such domains add-on domains. You can park additional domain names on
top of subdomains of your main account. For example, you can point SecondDomain.com
to sub.MainDomain.com and have it appear as a real account to everyone else.
This feature is very useful for people who own more than one domain name and
who runs multiple sites but does not require each site to be on a separate full-featured
account.. However, if you need to host each domain with its own separate features(!),
we suggest you to order another separate plan.
Add-on domains function just like any other domain from the visitor's point
of view. If you have a add-on domain "seconddomain.com" and your visitor
types the address into the browser, the browser's address bar will show "http://www.seconddomain.com" and
"http://www.maindomain.com/addondomain/". If your visitor navigates
to another page, the browser will accordingly show "http://www.seconddomain.com/mycoolpage/",
just like it should.
All add-on domain names share the same IP address, control panel, disk space,
data transfer, MySQL databases and other resources provided in your main account.
One account = One CPanel login.
Add-on domains comes with their own POP email accounts!
Can we add services as we grow and need them?

What are your Network Connections?

platform for all business needs (more - Network information ).
What is mod_GZIP?
Mod_gzip allows us to compress any static and/or dynamically generated webpage
at the server and send the content to the client browser which, in turn, decompresses
the page. This means for us a savings of (expensive) bandwidth and for the client
an increase in speed. For example: A 300 Kb page gets, thanks to the mod_gzip
module, compressed to as little as 40 Kb which means that a client connected
with a modem connection of 56K views the page after only some 7 seconds as compared
to a uncompressed transmission wait time of roughly 60 seconds! Most of today's
modern browsers have build-in support for gzip decompression, and, if not, mod_gzip
automatically sends the page uncompressed to the client.
What is your server environment?
Our servers are Dual Xeon 2.6Ghz, 2GB RAM with high-speed

Can you help me with my HTML, webpage, CGI programming, etc?
Time permitting we give advice via email on these issues but remember, we are
providers of webspace and can help you with 'content' only as time permits. CGI
is programming, don't be mistaken into thinking it is as easy as HTML. It isn't.
If you are going to use perl or PHP, buy a book. If you can't figure it out,
try to find information via search engine, for example -http://www.google.com
What is Bandwidth?
Bandwidth is the amount of data moved between your site and the browsers of the
customer's accessing your site.
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
For the vast majority of domains, traffic never becomes an issue and yes,
within reason, you should never worry about the number of hits your site receives,
but as a practical matter, no provider can provide you with unlimited resources
for a fixed price. Bandwidth costs money, and unlimited amounts of it are not
available to anyone.
Will I be able to access my domain name with or without the WWW?
