Main Hosting Features

We utilize the cPanel® as a hosting interface that is intuitive and includes video tutorials and on-screen help. This allows hosting customers to manage their own accounts and simplifies tasks such as:

  • Uploading and managing web pages
  • Creating email accounts
  • Installing web-based applications like blogs, shopping carts, and forums
  • Backing up data
  • Protecting a site’s content and bandwidth from abuse
  • Generating and viewing statistics about visitors
  • Reviewing error logs to locate broken links and other problems

Check out the official cPanel website for demos, video, and tutorials.

Comprehensive Email Management

Website owners can create email accounts associated with a website. cPanel supports the standard email protocols, including POP, IMAP, and SMTP, both with and without SSL encryption.
A web-based interface for checking email allows account holders to access email at any time, from any computer with a web browser.
Email forwarding, email filtering, mailing lists and spam protection are also available

Domain Management

Our hosting control panel allows the customer to control and manage domains. You can add and park domains, create subdomains, and redirect domains to other servers.

Security and Reliability

The hosting software is self-monitoring. If it detects a failed service, it will automatically attempt to restart that service. It comes equipped with an interface to help site owners manage and acquire backups for their entire account. The website owners can password-protect their website or separate directories. Virus protection allows them to scan files for viruses.

Softaculous

Softaculous is a program that allows a one-click installation of most popular Open Source scripts, such as:

CMS and Blogging software

  • WordPress
  • Joomla
  • Drupal

Shopping Carts

  • Zen Cart
  • osCommerce

Discussion Boards

  • phpBB Forum
  • Simple Machine Forum

Photo Galleries

  • Gallery 3
  • Coppermine

and more …

Softaculous is written with the non-technical user in mind, and it also generated great interest from more technically-minded users who do not want to waste time manually configuring many installation files to install a Perl or PHP script on their websites.
Softaculous is a great choice if you want to install something like a blog or a forum on your website.

Website Builder

All our hosting plans come with an online RVSiteBuilder. It’s one of the best website building programs on the market, and it’s a great solution to creating a first website on your own and getting an idea of how your website should look. While you may have a great looking website, it won’t compete with a professional, custom-made XHTML/CSS compliant website when it comes to search engine optimization and promoting your website in the Internet market.

Web Hosting Myth Demystified

There is an outrageous mystification in the web hosting industry. Thousands of web hosting companies claim that they run their own state-of-the-art web servers. The reality is that there are very few large data centers in the world that rarely provide web hosting services. Instead they rent web servers as well as shared web storage space and bandwidth to hosting companies.
