Basic Hosting Feature Explanation

Your Own Domain Name (www.yourname.com)

We configure the DNS entries for your domain name and host name (yourname.com and www.yourname.com) in our servers when we setup your account.

If you already have a domain name, you would need to modify your domain with the appropriate registry with our nameserver and IP address information for moving your domain to our servers. If you are not sure how to modify your domain, please contact us and we will provide the necessary information. Most registries do not charge anything for domain modification, but requires that only the Registrant or Admin Contact for a domain initiates or approves domain modification. You can verify Registrant or Admin Contact for your domain by using our Domain Lookup tool. Domain move does NOT involve any change in domain ownership or domain registrar.

If you order a new domain name, then we register your domain name with your ownership with an appropriate registry and charge you only $14.95 fee (one-year InterNIC or registry fee included!). This fee is non-refundable, requires pre-payment and is in addition to any hosting fee.

If you would like to register your domain yourself or if you are ordering a foreign domain name, then we will provide our nameserver, IP address and technical contact information that you would need to register your domain with any appropriate registry. Please be advised that accurate entry of our nameserver information in the registry database is required before your domain name will work. Also, please note that the domain registry fee would apply, irrespective of the ISP or webhost you select to register or host your domain with. Most registries charge a non-refundable $30.00-$35.00 per year of domain registry fee and require pre-payment of the fee.

30-Day Money-Back Guarantee

Your satisfaction is of utmost importance to us. We are so confident about the reliability and performance of our servers that we offer 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee to each of our customers. If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with your account, simply let us know within 30 days of opening your account by emailing us at support@globalfront.com. For your security, we require that any cancellation request must contain your domain name, account user name and password. We will refund all hosting fee that we received from you for the canceled account within 7 business days of your cancellation. (Setup fee and domain registry fee are non-refundable). Also we would always like you to be 100% satisfied with your account. If you have any question or concern about your account, then please let us know at support@globalfront.com.

Unlimited FTP Access

All Basic hosting accounts come with one FTP account and unlimited FTP access to our servers, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year, so you can update your website any time you like using any FTP client software.

Microsoft FrontPage98/2000/2002 Extensions

All of our Basic hosting accounts offer you the option of using Microsoft FrontPage98/2000/2002 extensions. This means if you are using Microsoft FrontPage to author or design web pages, you can publish highly professional looking web pages in your account quickly and easily, without any FTP or programming knowledge.

Unlimited Hits

All Basic hosting accounts come with free unlimited hits. Data transfers will not begin to be metered until your web traffic exceeds about 30000 kilobytes in a given DAY, which is about 10 times of what an average user of our Basic hosting plans needs. This is equivalent to a traffic of more than 1000 pages a DAY (assuming 30 kb as the average file size). If our estimate suggests that you might be approaching your monthly traffic limit, we will notify you in advance so you will never get a surprise bill for exceeding traffic limit. If your account exceeds the limit, you will be asked to pay for extra traffic at the rate of $0.70 per 100 MB of traffic per month, and you might be advised to switch to a higher traffic account. For most customers, this won't be a problem as you will be able to monitor your site traffic with graphic statistics software installed in your account.

POP Email Account

A POP account is a password-authenticated protocol based real email account that can receive and store email messages. Your POP account will be yourname@yourdomain.com. The POP accounts can be accessed from anywhere in the world through any POP-client software (like Outlook Express, Netscape) or third-party web-based email browsers. Also, any POP account can be the destination of unlimited email aliases with the catch-all email forwarding that we provide with your account.

Unlimited Aliases with Catch-All Address

Basic hosting allows you to use unlimited email aliases with a catch-all address for your domain. For instance, you will be able to use addresses like webmaster@yourdomain.com, sales@yourdomain.com, admin@yourdomain.com and anynames@yourdomain.com. Email messages sent to anything before @yourdomain.com will automatically go to your default POP email account, or to your preferred external account that you have from your ISP or from any other provider. You will be able to manage your catch-all address using Global Web Control Panel LE 24 hours a day.

Email Redirection

With email redirection option available to Basic hosting accounts, you will be able to have messages received at selected addresses forwarded to separate destination addresses. For instance, you may decide to forward emails for webmaster@yourdomain.com to you@yourdomain.com, messages received at sales@yourdomain.com to be forwarded to john123@yahoo.com, and messages for support@yourdomain.com to go to mary@herisp.com and so on. You will be able to create, delete and update the forwarding addresses instantly using Global Web Control Panel LE 24 hours a day.

Email Autoresponders

Basic hosting accounts offer you the ability to have autoresponders for specific email addresses. Using autoresponders is a handy way to provide your clients requesting further information on a specific issue related to your business with an instantaneous response to their emails. For instance, when any of your prospect or client sends an email to info@yourdomain.com, the server can email your pre-designated message to the sender's email address automatically. You will be able to create, edit, update and delete the autoresponders instantly using Global Web Control Panel LE 24 hours a day.

Web-based Control Panel

Basic hosting accounts have access to Global Web Control Panel LE, one of the finest, most user-friendly and secure web-based control panels available in the internet today. This allows you to create and manage email redirection addresses, autoresponders, mailing lists and list subscriptions, check your website's traffic statistics, create and manage password protected web directories and much more, with any standard web browser, from anywhere in the world, in real time without requiring any programming knowledge on your part. It also allows you to access your online support manual for your account. Please click here for more information on Global Web Control Panel or to test drive it right now!

Detailed Traffic Statistics

For Basic hosting accounts, we offer you access to detailed traffic statistics for your website with an easy-to-understand graphic interface. You will also have access to the detailed referrer statistics for your site. If your visitors used links somewhere else in the internet to reach your site, then the referrer statistics will display those links for you. This is greatly useful for businesses that would like to relate their marketing strategies and advertising campaigns with incoming traffic and their sources. You will also have access to raw server log files for your site.

Your Own CGI-bin

Basic hosting accounts allow you to execute your own CGI applications. Your account comes with your own cgi-bin for placing your scripts, and we make sure that you can use cgi-scripts in your account. Our servers will support both Perl and Java scripts in your account. However, configuration and or debugging CGI-scripts is a time-consuming task, and we won't be able to help you with that unless you use our web design or programming services.

Formmail Script

Basic hosting accounts come with a CGI script that allows you to receive inputs entered by visitors in a web form located in you website. Web-based form is a great way of having orders, comments, inquiries or feedback from your visitors sent to your email address in a structured and professional way. Also, if you are using FrontPage, then you will be able to use FrontPage forms in your account.

HTTP Redirection

You will be able to add a simple meta-tag provided by us to have any page in your site redirected to any other page in your account or to any other URL in the internet using HTTP redirection feature.

Password Protected Web Directories

You will be able to use our own proprietary Global Web Control Panel LE to instantly password protect any of your web directories. This will require visitors to the protected part of your website to enter username and password before they can view the contents in that directory. The GWCP LE also allows you to list the authorized users in any directory, add single to unlimited users and passwords for any web directory, remove access for selective users, and completely unprotect a previously protected directory, all with your browsers instantly without requiring any programming knowledge. Also, to the best or our knowledge, the GWCP LE password protection manager is the only cgi-based software of its kind in the internet which can intelligently avoid corrupting FrontPage webs since it checks for FrontPage web setting before modifying password setting for any web directory.
 

Server Side Includes

All Basic hosting accounts allow you to use Server Side Includes in case you are using any CGI script that needs SSI. This allows you to use SSI directives in .shtml pages. Use of SSI requires additional server resources, since the .shtml files are also parsed for SSI commands.

Web-based Mailing Lists

With Basic hosting accounts, you will be able to use our own proprietary Global Web Control Panel LE to manage your mailing list(s) and subscribers. As the list administrator, you will be able to add or remove subscribers from your list(s), view or download a copy of the list, get a count for the total number of subscribers in the list, lookup any specific address in a list, and send an instant message to all the subscribers from a password protected web page. Each mailing list can include upto 100 email addresses, and each email message to a mailing list can be upto 50k.

Mime Types for 100+ Applications

We have mime types for 100+ applications, including shockwave flash, midi, mpeg, au, wav, wrl, vrml, qt, mov, zip and much more, pre-installed in the servers hosting the Basic accounts. This allows your website to use any of these file types in your Basic account. When visitors browse through your site containing files that require any of these applications, the visitor browsers will be prompted to load the appropriate viewers/players to open the files associated with the mime-types.

Online Manual and Support

All Basic hosting accounts come with a comprehensive password-protected online manual that you will be able to access to get more information on how to use and manage the features for your account. Also, you can contact our support staff if you have questions regarding any feature of our server that relates to your account. We usually answer 80 percent of support questions in less than 4 hours, between 8 AM in the morning and 11 PM at night.
