Control Center

Overview of Control Panel

This section gives a brief description of the different options available in your Control Panel. Note that not all of the features may be available to you. Feature availability is dependent upon which hosting plan you have.

Please refer to our Compare Plans Page where you can see which options are available for your specific hosting plan.

Account Management
The Account Management Option will give you a detailed description of your Account Information. It includes your username, your package option, your activation date, contract length, server number your domain is on, etc. Set alarms to warn you when you are reaching your transfer and disk space limits.
This Option sets up anonymous FTP to allow users to upload and download files to and from your site without having to have a password. They will only have access to one directory that is setup automatically when you choose this option in your Control Panel.
Archive Manager
The Archive Manager will allow the user to backup and compress their files. For example, if you have a number of files for which you wish to keep a backup, you can select all the files, then create a backup file that contains all of them in compressed format.

You can also upload files from your local PC to the server in File Manager. Plus, you can edit the HTML in any of your files from this option. Everything you need to manage your site can be found in this feature.

Most users do not need to use this feature. Also, note that you cannot use this feature if you have Frontpage Extensions installed. You would need to use Frontpage itself to perform this function.
MS Frontpage
The MS Frontpage option allows you to install Microsoft. FrontPage. extensions - which are necessary in order to use Microsoft. FrontPage. with your site. You can also verify that they are installed, or remove them if you do not wish to use them anymore.

You will be able to add/edit/delete tables, fields, and values. You can also run queries on the database if you need to. We do not provide technical support in using MySQL outside of what is provided on your control panel. Please refer to MySQL's Web Site for complete tutorials and troubleshooting solutions and documentation. This is an excellent resource.
Network Trouble Shooter
The Network Trouble Shooter allows you to perform a traceroute from our server to your local PC. You may also trace from your web site on our server to any other location on the Internet. A traceroute shows the path that information travels over the Internet to go from one location to another. If you are experiencing slowness or problems when connecting to your web site, you can use this to see a snapshot of where the problem is occuring.
