File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a software standard for transferring computer files between machines with widely different operating systems. With our hosting packages, you can use any FTP based client to upload data / content to the web space included in your hosting package.
Unlike some hosting companies which restrict the amount of data that you can upload and download on a daily basis, with ALL our hosting packages - you get the ability to upload and download data 24x7, unlimited number of times. Add to this, you get the ability to add up to 100 FTP users. Using the FTP Manager in the hosting control panel you can do all of the following:
You are also given access to the Complete Log of Actions performed by each user i.e. you can find out which FTP user connected from what IP Address, at what time, and uploaded / modified / deleted which all file
Domain aliases allow you to point multiple domain names to the same web hosting package. For e.g. suppose yourdomain.com was the primary domain name for the hosting package and you also wanted to point yourdomain.net (additional TLDs) or yourdomains.com (mis-spellings) or someothername.com (additional brandnames) to the same hosting package - then you would specify these additional domain names as domain aliases.
The important point to note is that the way a domain alias functions - the visitor is not redirected to the primary domain name - the domain name that he or she typed in the browser continues to be displayed as-is through out the visit.
You can add up to 5 Domain Aliases with each hosting package that you purchase. Kindly note that DNS Services are included for the primary domain name only and not for domain aliases.
A powerful web traffic reporting tool is included within your control panel. This tool generates web based reports that provide insightful information about the users visiting your , such as, the number of unique visitors, no of hits, avg duration spent by each user on your , most viewed entry and exit pages, search engines, keyphrases and keywords used to find your site etc.
Using the Web Statistics Manager in the control panel, you have the:
Another feature exclusive to our control panels - the Direct Download Manager helps you save several hours of your valuable time by allowing you to download files to your web space directly from another server via a HTTP URL or FTP URL. If you need to transfer large files to your web space that are already available on some other server, then you would typically have to download these files locally to your desktop and re-upload them. All of this could take up quite some time depending on the file size and your internet connection speed. However, using the server-to-server transfer facility provided by the Direct Download Manager you can utilize the server's high speed connection to directly download large files, so, even if you are connected to the Internet via a dial-up connection, file transfers will occur at the very high speeds.
This feature is most useful when you are transferring your date from your previous web hosting provider, as you could just zip up your whole and instead of downloading it locally to your desktop, directly download it on the server and unzip it there
The Backup Manager provides comprehensive and cost effective protection by allowing you to define highly flexible backup policies that will protect their critical data. The web-based backup policy manager provides an easy-to-use one-step wizard to add each policy. You just needs to follow the steps mentioned below:
You are allowed to add as many policies as you want. This allows you to creatively structure any kind of backup policy that you require.
For e.g. you can add one policy which takes a backup of the entire on a daily basis, with 5 backlogs. Another policy, which takes a backup of the entire on a weekly basis, with 4 backlogs, and yet another policy which takes a backup of the entire on a monthly basis, with 6 backlogs.
With the above set of policies, you has created a comprehensive backup plan with multiple restore points for his . You can roll back to a point in the last 5 days, or restore a backup which was taken every week , or a backup that was taken monthly.
Comprehensive Raw Log files are made available in each web hosting packages Logs Folder. The raw log files consist of:
The Log Files Manager in the control panel provides extremely flexible options to manage these raw log files. All options can be configured seperately for Web, FTP and Mail Log files. The user can choose to disable a particular type of logging in order to save disk space. If the user chooses to enable logging, the system allows the user to specify log rotation options to delete older log entries automatically so that the log files do not continue growing in size indefinetely. The user can specify the no of backlogs to maintain for each type of log file, set a max log file size and set log rotation frequency (daily/weekly/monthly).
When a visitor attempts to connect to a web site and an HTTP error occurs, a generic message is sent back to the visitor's browser with a brief description of what happened during the attempt to establish a connection. For example, if a visitor attempts to connect to a page that no longer exists on the web site , an HTTP error will be returned in the form of an HTML page that contains the statement "The requested URL was not found on this server."You can customize the following HTTP errors:
You can use the "Custom Errors Pages" section of the Control Panel to customize HTTP errors that are sent to clients when web server errors occur.
Our web and email servers are configured to allow domain access with and without the "www." in front of the domain name i.e. http://www.yourdomain.com and http://yourdomain.com will both work perfectly.
FrontPage is a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) HTML editor and web site administration tool from Microsoft. The FrontPage Manager option allows you to enable and disable support for FrontPage Server Extensions on your . Enabling frontpage extensions would allow you to directly publish your through FrontPage itself, instead of requiring you to use a seperate FTP Based Client. Also, if you are using certain components provided by FrontPage, you would need the extensions to be enabled for these components to function correctly.
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology protects data by creating a secure connection between a client and a server using encryption enabled by a server's SSL Certificate. SSL is required if your is an ecommerce (or) has any secure login areas (or) requires any secure pages. The SSL Manager in the control panel allows you to manage your CSR's (certificate signing requests), public and private keys, SSL certificates provided by your CA and self-signed certificates generated by the server.
A private folder is included with every hosting package which allows you to store data and files securely and quickly via FTP. This folder is outside your web directory i.e. not directly exposed on the internet via HTTP and has special security permissions such that no user, other than the FTP Users specified by you, has read or write access to the data in this folder. By creating sub-folders within this private folder and restricting Access of FTP Users to particular sub-folders, you can share files securely and reduce or eliminate the need to copy data on disks for overnight delivery, thus saving both time and money. Our FTP servers allow you to resume partial transfers where they left off, so even if you get disconnected or end a session, you can always reconnect and resume the transfer where you left off at a later date or time.
Directory Protection is an easy-to-use web based tool included in the control panel that allows you create as many password protected areas as you want without requiring any programming. This allows you to store sensitive material online and give browser based access to such content / data to authorized users only. A password dialogue box will automatically popup in the browser when an attempt is made to access the password protected directory or any of its sub-directories.
The Redirect Manager in the hosting control panel gives you the ability to forward requests for any local folder, sub-folder, file to another domain name, URL, or IP address seamlessly. For e.g. if you want http://www.yourdomainname.com/corp to redirect to http://www.someotherdomain.com, then you can add a rule for the same. The easy-to-use Redirect Manager allows you to add as many such web forwarding rules as you want.
You can upload data / publish content on your / transfer files to and from the server using any of the following:
