Disk Space (MB)
Used to store everything related to your website such as your regular html files, images, multimedia files, anonymous ftp files, POP mail messages, cgi-scripts and any other files that make up your website.

E-mail Addresses
These are your email mail boxes in our server that can be accessed directly to retrieve your mail using such programs as Eudora, Outlook Express, and Netscape Mail. Each POP3 account has its own password to ensure privacy. You will be able to check your email anywhere around the world where you have access to the Internet.

Domain Name (www.yourname.com)
Basically an easy to remember internet address in plain alphabet which computers will translate into an ugly IP address which is a long set of numbers. e.g. globeint.com and .com A more formal definition is below:

    "An addressing construct used for identifying and locating computers on the Internet. Domain names provide a system of easy-to-remember Internet addresses, which can be translated by the Domain Name System (DNS) into the numeric addresses (Internet Protocol (IP) numbers) used by the network. A domain name is hierarchical and often conveys information about the type of entity using the domain name. A domain name is simply a label that represents a domain, which is a subset of the total domain name space. Domain names at the same level of the hierarchy must be unique, for example there can be only one com at the top level of the hierarchy, and only one netsol.com at the next level of the hierarchy." from InterNIC.
Each of our web sites comes with its very own domain name that you decide. So, for example, the name of the web site might be "www.yourname.com". A true domain is when you get your very own unique IP address on the web server. Many hosts offer 'fake virtual' domain accounts, which means they fool most browsers into redirecting themselves to the correct directory on the server. This method only works with certain browsers, is not full featured and is not a professional solution.

Domain Name Registration
In order for visitors to find your website using the domain name of your choice, you need to do two things, both of which are handled by GlobeInt.com Inc. First, you need to reserve your domain name with InterNIC. Second you need to provide InterNIC with the nameserver of your domain name.

If you are not yet ready to have a website but want to reserve just the name, GlobeInt.com Inc. can handle that as well. This is a good idea since domain names are going fast. Goto our domain registration page.

Unique/Static IP Address
Each account comes with a static IP address. A static IP address means the IP address (the number of your site) never changes. Some hosting companies use dynamic IP addressing, which means the IP number is different each and every time you connect to the server or they have several domains use 1 IP address. A static IP address provides your site with a never-changing solid address, which allows you to use it when FTPing files, or pinging your site, etc. A static IP allows you to have a true domain name.

Auto Responders
An autoresponder replies to all incomming email sent to that emailbox using a prewritten reply email. The domain owner can set an autoresponder on any emailbox on their GlobeInt.com domain. Using the GlobeInt.com Email Administrator Interface the domain owner can add, edit and delete autoresponder text anytime 24hrs per day 7 days per week, and changes take effect immediately! This can be a powerful marketing tool and a great way to let your email correspondants know you got their message.

Email Forwarding
Email can be forwarded into any and all or your email boxes to any valid email address on the internet. It is simple to put a forwarding address on any email box by using the BestHost Email Administrators interface, which you can use anything 24hrs a day 7days a week, and the changes you make take effect immediately.

e.g. X sends an email to webmaster@yourname.com. Our server receives the mail and immediately forwards it to you@yourisp.com.

Detailed Usage Statistic/Access to Raw Log File
We give you a detailed graphical and tabular usage statistics of your website grouped by weeks, days, and hours so you can track how many hits you are getting, from where those hits are coming from, which page is the most popular, how much data transfer is occurring, and more. You also have access to raw log files so you can analyze the usage using even more sophisticated programs.

Detailed Online Statistics
Track your hits, pageviews, most popular pages and referral sites in an easy-to-use stats program. Each morning you'll receive an 8 page analysis of your web site's visitors. Also see Detailed Usage Statistic/Access to Raw Log File.

Mailing Lists
Mailing lists allow you to send e-mail to a large number of contacts in a very efficient manner. You can manage the mailing list through the control panel.

Data Transfer
This is the amount of network traffic related to your domain. Each time a web page, image, audio, video, and other elements of your website is accessed by your visitor, traffic is generated. Our daily data transfer allowance is set to unlimited, to give our customers one more benefit and reduce a possible cost to have a presence on the Internet.

Secure Server (SSL)
One method of ensuring that information entered through your website is protected from preying eyes. Information submitted via a secure form is sent to the server in an encrypted mode. Most commonly used for credit card transactions. In order to perform secure transactions on the web using https://yourdomain.com you need a hosting company that will support SSL. We use Apache-SSL on all of our servers.

FTP Accounts
Used to up and download your website to and from our server to your computer. You have unlimited access to your account 24 hours a day 365 days a year to set up and maintain your web site.

FTP Access
Used to up and download your website to and from our server to your computer. You have unlimited access to your account 24 hours a day 365 days a year to set up and maintain your web site.

Anonymous FTP
Anonymous FTP allows visitors to your site to download files via ftp without a password. It is disabled by default.

Weekly Backups (Tape)
Our servers are backed up daily on high-capacity data tapes that retain a full image of our server drives in the unlikely case of a drive problem. Restoring old data is also available for a small fee.

FrontPage 98/2000 Extensions
The FrontPage 98 is a "web editor" from Microsoft, Inc. If you have FrontPage and wish to use its web creation and publishing features to assist in your web design simply let us know and your domain will be FrontPage Extensions enabled.

Using Microsoft® FrontPage® 98
Goto FrontPage Explorer
File | Publish FrontPage Web
Click on More Webs
Type in your IP address (64.xxx.xxx.xxx) or yourdomain.com
Type in username/password

Using Microsoft® FrontPage® 2000
Open FrontPage2000
File | Publish Web..
Type in "http://your_ip_address or http://yourdomain.com
Type in username/password

This shouldn't prompt you for ftp server but rather connect to your root server directly. In fact if it asks for ftp server, that means that your FrontPage extensions are corrupted. In this case, you would need to backup all your files, and ask us to reinstall your FrontPage extensions. Once the reinstall is complete, you will be informed by us. At this point, you can upload your files again using the method described above.

Full CGI-BIN with preconfigured scripts installed
Common Gateway Interface -- A set of rules that describe how a Web Server communicates with another piece of software on the same machine, and how the other piece of software (the "CGI program") talks to the web server. Any piece of software can be a CGI program if it handles input and output according to the CGI standard.

Used to supplement basic HTML to make your website more interactive and functional. e.g. hit counter, guest book, order form, and etc. You as our customer have free access to our library of CGI scripts that will enhance your website. All of our plans come with its own local cgi-bin to store custom cgi scripts that you may have written or found else where on the web.

Usually a CGI program is a small program that takes data from a web server and does something with it, like putting the content of a form into an e-mail message, or turning the data into a database query.

You can often see that a CGI program is being used by seeing "cgi-bin" in a URL, but not always.

Your own CGI-BIN
We encourage development of highly interactive, successful sites. For your site to be truly interactive you need to be able to run computer programs in your own cgi-bin. Also, see Full CGI-BIN with preconfigured scripts installed.

Telnet (SSH)
Many users are not at all familiar with telnet and just as many do not need to use it. Telnet allows you to get a shell on our Linux servers. The implementation of telnet that we use is called SSH. To use telnet (SSH), we require the user to send us a fax with a copy of their photo ID requesting SSH. Users also need an RSA Key entered in the control panel in order to access it. We also require the user to use SSH software.

Password Protected Pages
You can use the control panel to specify which users are allowed to access certain pages on your site. When visitors click on a certain URL, they are requested to enter a username and password which you manage through the control panel.

Control Panel
Gives you the capability to manage all aspects of your account in order to make the best use of your options. By the click of a mouse, you can administer your webspace, your e-mail accounts, your directories, your cgi-bin, and all the special features that we offer you, such as site statistics and shopping carts. You can even add additional features to your account right when you need them.

Guestbook

Cybercash Support
Cybercash is an online credit card processor. If you register with them, you can then install the local config for your domain on our servers with the Control Panel.

Shopping Cart Program
Keeps track of what your customers have ordered on-line as they add and remove items from their virtual "shopping cart." When the customer is ready to check out, the program tallies the order for your customer to review. If the customer decides to submit the order, the program will email the order information to the email address of your choice and a "receipt" to your customer.

Page Access Counters
Our very slick looking access counters can be installed on as many pages as you choose at no extra charge.

Perl, C, SH, Java, Python
We have enjoyed being the clear choice for computer programmers building web sites. For this reason, we always give programmers the most recent versions of the hottest programs needed to build their web applications.

Pine, Pico, Joe
A program that allows you to check your e-mail from a terminal machine. This is a UNIX program and you need login to your account using SSH or Telnet.

Cron Tab
A UNIX program that allows you to schedule tasks to be performed at specific time and day.

Form to E-mail
Our special form to e-mail program takes the contents of a form submission and e-mail's you the results to the address you specify.

Search Engine
In the control panel you can specify which directories you want searchable by our high powered WAIS index and search utility. You can then provide users with lightning fast content.

MySQL/mSQL database support
A database engine used for accessing database. We have support for creating a simple searchable database. A more complex database-website interface requires custom programming. More information on mSQL can be found at http://www.hughes.com.au or http://www.msql.com. More information on MySQL can be found at or http://www.mysql.com

MySQL is our GNU database of choice. We develop all of our own products with MySQL or Oracle. We encourage all mSQL and postgresQL users to migrate to MySQL.

mSQL database support
See MySQL/mSQL database support.

PHP 3.0
Not only do we provide you with PHP support, but the majority of our system tools and design projects are done by our staff in PHP. PHP is compiled as a module with MySQL, gdbm, and gd support.

Real Audio/Video
Real Networks' RealAudio/Video system is a client-server based, meaning both the browser and the server must have RealAudio/Video components for it to work, streaming audio/video delivery system for the Internet. You can create and deliver audio/video-based streaming multimedia content through the Internet to audiences worldwide. We include step-by-step instructions for including RealAudio/Video in your Web pages.

We do not have a Real Audio/Video server. However, we do support Real Audio/Video streaming for no extra charge.

When Real Audio/Video first came out, it required an audio/video server to be installed on the web server. This was because Real Audio/Video wanted to charge for each "stream'" or visitor. But soon people started writing competitive audio/video streaming technology that didn't require a special server. So, to compete, Real Audio/Video now does not require a server, and you can even use their free tools to create streaming audio over the Internet.

Real Video
We support Video streaming with the Real Video Mime type as explained above.
