With our Plan A account, you get 4000 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 8000 megabytes of disk space.
For more information about disk storage and the other features
of the plans, look at our Unix
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/IMAP 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/IMAP 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

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

This feature allows you to setup forwarding email accounts
that will send all the email they receive to a real POP account. Email aliases

a real pop account.
