Bandwidth / Transfer / Hits
You have unlimited bandwidth on your shared
hosting package. Any outbound traffic from your
web site is considered data transfer. FTP uploads
do not count as data transfer. Each time a html
file, graphic file or any other element on your
web page is loaded, data transfer is generated.
Disk storage refers to the amount of server disk
storage your account is allocated. The space is
used to store your html files, graphics,
audio/video files and all other files that make up
your web site. Your POP3 emails are not stored in
this space. You are allotted an extra 10 MB of
space for your mail spool. Should you require
additional space for your content you will need to
upgrade your account to the next shared package.

Arab Hosting Network is an official domain name
registrar (DNR). This gives us the ability to
register your new domain name instantly upon
receipt of your order. Your domain will cost
$22/year with the ability to register your domain
for up to 10 years at a time.
Static IP Address
Every hosting account is configured with a
static IP address. This means that you are given a
unique set of numbers (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)
specifically assigned to your web space. This
allows you to access your web site via a web
browser or development tool regardless of the
status of your domain name. Having your own IP
address also gives you the opportunity of
publishing your web site to your new web space
before actually transferring your domain name to
our DNS. This results in no down time when
transferring your web site from a another hosting

multiple domain names.
Setup time is the time it takes us from the time
we receive your payment until the time your
machine is online and ready to use.
Each of our hosting packages comes with unlimited POP3 email accounts in addition to email forwards and aliases. You have the option to retrieve email directly from POP3 mailboxes on the mail server using an email program such as Eudora, Outlook or Outlook Express.
Email Aliases / Forwards
Using Email Aliases or forwarders gives you the ability to receive any email at
*@yourdomain.com. Specific email addresses that you want to forward out of your domain to another email account can be accomplished through MonsterControls or by editing your .redirect file within your /home directory. For example you may want to forward all email addressed to
email@example.com to an AOL account such as
Bob232@aol.com or another POP3 account on your domain
firstname.lastname@example.org. The best part about using aliases or forwards is that the person emailing you never knows the mail is being redirected.
An autoresponder is a pre-determined message with information you want automatically sent to anyone who emails a designated email address/mailbox at your domain.
PGP is a program that adds privacy to your electronic mail that you send through our network. It encrypts your mail so that nobody but the intended person can read it. When encrypted, the message looks like a meaningless jumble of random characters. PGP has proven itself quite capable of resisting even the most sophisticated forms of analysis aimed at reading the encrypted text.
You can create multiple mail lists based on your customer's interests. You provide customers an email address they can send an email to and be added to your personalized mailing list. As soon as customers sign on they are sent a friendly welcome message.

Each list can hold 1000 names and a 75kb message can be emailed to all the lists you create.
