With our Plan A account, you get 2000 megabytes of disk
storage. This is usually more than enough to store your Web pages on. Our main
Web page with buttons, text and all come out to less than 100 Kilobytes. That's
one tenth of a megabyte! Of course the more graphics you have on your site,
the more space you will use. Our Plan B comes with 4000 megabytes of disk space.
This plan offers the extra space to accommodate Real Audio, Real Video, and
mySQL files. For more information about disk storage and the other features
of the plans, look at our Unix
and NT specific features
FTP is the most common method for transferring files to servers on the Web. An FTP
login allows you to log into an FTP space and move files around. It consists of a username and password.
Having multiple FTP logins allows for multiple users to have access to parts or all of the space. For
instance, if you have a subdomain of your account, you may wish to give a different Webmaster an FTP login
that only has access to the subdomain, so that they can make changes.
POP3 accounts are full-fledged email accounts. They allow
you to send and receive email. They come with their own username and password
to access them. You can configure any POP mail client program to use these
e-mail accounts. ProHosting provides a Web-based e-mail client for you also.
You can access it at http://mail.your_domain.com (do not include www).
Email auto responders allow you to set up an email account
with the ability to auto-reply with a given message when someone sends email
to it. It looks like a pop account. You have probably seen one when you send
email to somewhere and it comes right back with "We got your email"
or something to that effect. That was most likely an auto responder.
aliases are domains that point at the same location. For
is a domain alias of prohosting.com.
domains or Vanity domains can be used for this purpose.
(a vanity domain is a prefix to a full domain, like the
www in www.prohosting.com
Sub Domains are similar to Domain aliases, but a Sub Domain
points to a sub-directory of the main domain. For instance, http://fileman.prohosting.com
is a subdomain of prohosting.com, and it points at the /support/fileman_tutorial/
sub directory (found at https://www.prohosting.com/support/fileman_tutorial/)
. Regular domains or Vanity domains can be used for this purpose. (a vanity
domain is a prefix to a full domain, like the fileman in fileman.prohosting.com
EZMLM Mailing Lists
EZMLM stands for Easy Mailing List Manager, and is a powerful
tool for handling large newsletters, product update letters, and other similar
mailings. The manager
provides many options, allowing you to set up a mailing list, or a discussion
This feature allows you to setup forwarding email accounts
that will send all the email they receive to a real POP account. Email aliases
don't have usernames and passwords, they just redirect mail sent to them to
a real pop account.
Gigabytes of Transfer
most amount of transfer for your money. Most sites do not
exceed a Gigabyte (gig) of transfer a month and we give
you 30 gigs a month. If you do go over 30 gigs a month we
offer the most reasonable prices for extra bandwith that
you can find at $1/gig.
With access control, you can create directories and set
unique usernames and passwords to allow people to access those directories.
If they don't have the username/password, they can't get into that directory
via http. This is handy to implement for members only areas of your site.
ProHosting will register the domain name of your choice
for only $16.00. That is $20.00 less than if you were to purchase the same
name directly through a registrar. You will own the domain and will have full
access to control the name servers. It's never been easier to get a Web site!

to our servers safely. If someone should intercept the data in-between
your viewers browser and our server, it will be encrypted and they won't
be able to do anything with it. With access to our SSL server,
the URL to access your secure pages will be in the form https://secure.prohosting.com/~yourusername/form.html,
if you used your own SSL server, which only comes with plan B, the URL
would be in the form https://your_domain.com/form.html

to a safe directory, without giving them your Administrative
login name and password. They can also download files from
a protected directory.

that data sent from your viewers Internet browser will make it to our servers

will be in the form https://secure.prohosting.com/~yourusername/form.html.
If you used your own SSL server, which only comes with plan B, the URL would
be in the form https://secure.yourdomain.com/form.html
where yourdomain.com is the name of the domain that you host with ProHosting.com.
Note: In addition to having Plan B or higher (including NT), you must
also purchase a SSL Certificate in order to have a Private SSL Server through
Ms Access is a database
format mostly used to store relatively small amounts of data and handles a
small amount of transactions as originally it was designed for single user
Static HTML pages can
be brought to life, and Audio/video files are the way to do it. Audio
and video content is quickly becoming a normal everyday appearance on
a Web site. Take advantage of this quickly growing idea with the use
of Microsoft's Streaming Media server.
Server Pages (ASP)
Active Server Pages
(ASP), is a Microsoft open, text application environment in which you
can combine HTML pages, scripts, and server components to create Web-based
solutions. Use it to make more interactive Web page components.
2000 Database Support
SQL is a high-end
database system capable of hundreds of thousands of transactions per
day. If coded to handle site traffic properly, databases can make your
site both interactive and information-intensive. We recommend that you
use Microsoft SQL (MS SQL) servers (instead of Access database) if you
have a database-intensive or e-commerce-enabled Web site, or any site
that cannot tolerate downtime.
Web sites that use Access/FoxPro/Jet
Databases do not scale well under heavy traffic conditions, potentially resulting
in a server crash if combined with inefficient programming statements. Although
thousands of customers currently use Access or FoxPro databases on their Web
sites without any performance issues, we provide MSSQL as a solution for those
customers who desire an alternative or whose site traffic necessitates taking
their site to the next level of performance.
Servlets are modules that
extend request/response-oriented servers, such as Java-enabled Web servers.
For example, a servlet might be responsible for taking data in an HTML order-entry
form and applying the business logic used to update a company's order database.
Servlets are an effective replacement for CGI scripts. They provide a way
to generate dynamic documents that is both easier to write and faster to run.
Servlets also address the problem of doing server-side programming with platform-specific
APIs: they are developed with the Java Servlet API, a standard Java extension.
