Disk storage refers to the amount of server disk
storage your account is allocated. This 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.
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.
Number of Domains Per Server
We do not overload our web servers. We bind 1
class C (256) of Ips to each machine. This ensure
that your web site loads fast and is always
available to your visitors.

Every shared 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

precipitation, or any other desired data element.
As XML tags are adopted throughout an
organization's intranet, and by others across the
Internet, there will be a corresponding ability to
search for and manipulate data regardless of the
applications within which it is found. Once data
has been located, it can be delivered over the
wire and presented in a browser such as Internet
Explorer 5 in any number of ways, or it can be
handed off to other applications for further
processing and viewing.
