Unix provides secure and reliable environment perfect for
most of the hosting needs, but sometimes you want to take advantage
of some Windows applications such as MS Access, ASP scripting.
For that you might want to use NT.
The SSL security protocol provides data encryption, server
authentication, message integrity, and optional client authentication
for a TCP/IP connection. Because SSL is built into all major
browsers and web servers, simply installing a digital certificate
turns on their SSL capabilities.
Domain names are the familiar, easy to remember names for
computers on the Internet (such as internic.net). They correspond
to a series of numbers (called Internet Protocol numbers) that
serve as routing addresses on the Internet. Domain names are
used generally as a convenient way of locating information and
reaching others on the Internet.
The Internet domain name system (DNS) consists of a directory,
organized hierarchically, of all the domain names and their
corresponding computers registered to particular companies and
persons using the Internet. When you register a domain name,
it will be associated with the computer on the Internet you
designate during the period the registration is in effect.
To register a domain name, you will be asked to provide the
registrar you select with the various contact and technical
information that makes up the registration. H-Sphere will guide
you through the process, and will make it extremely easy. H-Sphere
will automatically contact the registrar, who will then keep
records of the contact information and submit the technical
information to a central directory known as the "registry."
This registry provides other computers on the Internet the information
necessary to send you e-mail or to find your web site. You will
also be required to enter a registration contract with the registrar,
which sets forth the terms under which your registration is
accepted and will be maintained.
Yes. Information about who is responsible for domain names
is publicly available to allow rapid resolution of technical
problems and to permit enforcement of consumer protection, trademark,
and other laws. The registrar will make this information available
to the public on a "Whois" site.
It will take you just a few minutes to register a domain,
but it might not be available on the Internet for up to 48 hours.
This is due to the fact that Internet DNS databases are updated
only once a day, causing the delay.
All ICANN-accredited registrars follow a uniform dispute resolution
policy. Under that policy, disputes over entitlement to a domain-name
registration are ordinarily resolved by court litigation between
the parties claiming rights to the registration. Once the court
rules who is entitled to the registration, the registrar will
implement that ruling. In disputes arising from registrations
allegedly made abusively (such as "cybersquatting" and cyberpiracy"),
the uniform policy provides an expedited administrative procedure
to allow the dispute to be resolved without the cost and delays
often encountered in court litigation. In these cases, you can
invoke the administrative procedure by filing a complaint with
one of the dispute-resolution service providers listed at http://www.icann.org/udrp/approved-providers.htm.

They are the same as for .com. Traditionally, however, names
in .net have been used by organizations involved in Internet
infrastructure activities and .org is frequently used by not-for-profit
Yes. The .com, .net, and .org domains are available for registration
by Internet users across the globe. ICANN-accredited domain
name registrars are also located in various countries around
the world. To view the InterNIC list of domain name registrars

Two letter domains, such as .uk, .de and .jp (for example),
are called country code top level domains (ccTLDs) and correspond
to a country, territory, or other geographic location. The rules
and policies for registering domain names in the ccTLDs vary
significantly and some are reserved for use by citizens of the
corresponding country. You should check with the registrar offering
ccTLD registration services regarding the specific terms and
conditions for registration. H-Sphere supports hosting of such
A stopgap domain alows to create hosting if you don`t have
any domain name. If you register with a stopgap domain, you
will get a domain name like "loginname.u1.your-base-domain".
You can create your own web-site and access it with either the
IP (if the IP is dedicated) or the above domain name. This kind
of domain doesn`t have any registration records in the DNS.
Your virtual FTP users can have access to more than one virtual
FTP directory, so you need to allow them to enter the root dir.
You can use FTP subaccounts to restrict their access to only
This means you have reached your Credit Limit. For example,
you've used all your money on your balance if you pay by check,
or your credit card expired/was broken and failed to be charged.
In this case you'll still be able to run your hosting account
(with recurrent and extra usage payment accrued), but you won't
be able to create any new resource (neither paid nor free).
Check if the *.asp files are not included into SSI section.
It's a common mistake. If you set the *.asp files to be lauched
via SSI library, set ASP to OFF, delete the *.asp extension
from SSI list and then set ASP to ON again.
