Now you can create an email account at your domain for each of them. Simply login and start creating email accounts, it's that simple!

While other web hosting companies give you a limited number of database, We give you an UNLIMITED number of MySQL databases. Plus you get a great control panel so that you can create and manage them all.|
Are you not sure what a database is or why you would need it? Well, a database is simply a structured collection of records or data that is stored on the server. Simply put, a database is a lot like a spreadsheet in that you have rows and columns. You would need a database if you want to output dynamic data on your website or If you intend to use a program on your website that requires a database.
|Unlimited Sub Domains more info... Did you know that you can create an unlimited number of sub domains for your website? A sub domain is a domain name with the form "anything.yourdomain.com". So if you have 3 departments (say Sales, Support, and Administration) and you want to create a separate website for each department, then you could create sales.yourdomain.com, support.yourdomain.com, and adminstration.yourdomain.com. And it doesn't stop there! You can even create third level domains, fourth level domains, and so on. With unlimited sub domains, you can structure your website(s) to fit your needs.|
|Flexible Disk Space more info... Do you have a large website? If so, then our web hosting is perfect for you. We offer flexible disk space for every website. So even if you have a large website with lots of photos, a ton of email, and multiple huge databases, we got you covered. We can easily add more disk space to any website and are very flexible depending on your needs.|
Although we offer the ability to use unlimited disk space and don't place a quota on websites that have unlimited disk space, you are still limited to the amount of disk space that is physically available on your server. All users on a particular server will share all available disk space. Typical servers will have between 1TB and 4TB of disk space to share between users.
|Flexible Data Transfer more info... All websites hosted with us have flexible data transfer limits. We start you off with 15GB which is enough for approximately 150,000 hits a month. (depends on the file size of photos and other files on your website) If you need more data transfer, you can simply add on as much as you want at about $1 / GB / month (That's about 10,000 hits for $1). (Discounts may apply if you purchase data transfer in bulk).|
So, how do you know how much traffic you have used for the month? Simply login to your account. Within your control panel you can see a traffic meter that tells you how much traffic you have left.
