Explanation of Main Features
Disk Storage Space
We allocate generous amounts of disk storage space for your use.
You can store over 200 average web pages (graphics and all) within 10 MB. If you require
additional disk space, you have the option of purchasing disk space in blocks of 100MB, 200MB,
500MB and 1,000MB or the upgrading of your hosting plan depending on your needs.
- Hello World - 500MB
- Personal Advantage - 1,000MB (1GB)
- Business Domination - 2,000MB (2GB)
- Corporate Supremacy - 3,000MB (3GB)
Monthly Data Transfer
Each time someone visits your web site they use up part of your monthly data transfer allowance.
The average site generates about 500 MegaBytes of data transfer each month. We offer:
Our data tranfer allowance for each plan is very generous. Should you require additional bandwidth,
you can purchase blocks of 1,000MB (1GB), 5,000MB (5GB) and 10,000MB (10GB).
- 20,000 MegaBytes (20GB) transfer allowance on our Hello World Plan;
- 40,000 MegaBytes (40GB) transfer allowance on our Personal Advantage Plan;
- 60,000 MegaBytes (60GB) transfer allowance on our Business Domination Plan;
- 90,000 MegaBytes (90GB) transfer allowance on our Corporate Supremacy Plan.
Our hosting plans come with one or more MySQL database. This is an
excellent database product and works very well with PHP scripts. You can of course purchase
additional database environments if so required for your needs. We also provide MySQL PhpMyAdmin,
a Windows' based management tool for your database. Please note that while we provide MySQL
access to customers, we do not provide support for this software since it is a third party
package. However, there is extensive support documentation available in the Internet. For
further information about MySQL, please refer to the
MySQL Home Page
You can access your account via File Transfer Protocol (FTP) 24 hours a day, every day of
the year. You can upload your site using FTP, or you can use the Web5star Control Panel
instead. We include multiple FTP access accounts as part of our hosting packages.
We include an allowance for multiple Sub Domains in each of our hosting plans. Subdomains
are a way of creating separate accounts within your master account, which are accessed as
separate URLs. For example, you could set up a "secure" subdomain on your master account
"mydomain.com", which would be accessed as "secure.yourdomain.com". A Sub Domain is really a
sub folder within the public_http level of your account that has it's own cgi-bin directory.
We will set you up to receive email messages at email@example.com Our Hello World,
Personal Advantage, Business Domination and Corporate Supremacy accounts come with extra
POP3 email boxes.
Unlimited Email Addresses (Aliases)
We set up your main email account so that any mail sent to an unrecognised user at your
domain is delivered to your main email address. This can be very useful because it
means you can use many different email aliases without actually having to set them up explicitly.
You can also give any email account an unlimited number of email aliases so that when mail
is sent to, say, firstname.lastname@example.org then you will receive the email at, say,
email@example.com (a real mailbox). Email aliases can be set up very easily
through our control panel.
Autoresponders are a great marketing tool and can save you time answering common questions.
You can set up an autoresponder so that when a message is sent to, say, firstname.lastname@example.org,
then your pre-written message is automatically returned to the sender. All our hosting
packages allow you to set up an unlimited number of autoresponders.
You can choose to forward your email to a different email account anywhere on the web.
This is easily achieved through our control panel.
Mailman Subscribable Mailing List
Mailman is a program which automates the management of Internet mailing lists.
Commands are sent to Majordomo via electronic mail to handle all aspects of list maintainance.
Once a list is set up, virtually all operations can be performed remotely, requiring no
intervention upon the postmaster of the list site. We have included a generous number of
subscribable mailing lists in our hosting plans (with up to 1,000 subscribers for each list).
World Class "Control Panel"
Our world class Control Panel offers the best site management tools in the business. Also,
the Control Panel can display its information in 20 different languages.
Programming Languages and Development Tools
Our servers support Perl V5.8.8, PHP V5.2.13 and FrontPage 98/2000/2002 extensions. Your
web pages can also include Java applets (though not Java servlets). Crontab access (UNIX
command to execute scheduled tasks at a specified time) is allowed only in our Business Domination and
Corporate Supremacy plans.

Detailed Usage Statistics
We generate daily statistical data about your site's traffic. A Windows' base report will
include information about visitors, page views, file accesses, referrers, browsers used by
your visitors, platforms used by your visitors, visitors' hosts, visitors' top-level domains,
and the most common entry and exit pages. These reports are among the most detailed
and useful around, but you will also have access to your raw log files in case you want to
examine the data further (raw log files available to Business and Corporate plans only).
Server Side Includes
Server side includes are a neat and simple way of repeating blocks of HTML code in different
web pages. The file containing the repetitive HTML code can be included in any page(s)
you like with only one line of HTML code (a server side include statement).
Customized Error 404 Missing Document Page
When a visitor to your site tries to access a page that does not exist, they will usually
receive Apache's default Error 404: File Not Found message. If you prefer you can
set up your account so that your own customized 'missing document' page is displayed instead,
perhaps with a link to your home page (or whatever you like).
Password Protected Directories
You can restrict access to any directory on your site so that visitors are prompted for a
user name and password in order to access any files in the directory.
Secure Server (SSL)
We provide our generic secure server access so that you can receive
payments and transmit information securely via the web. For a dedicated secure server access
you will need to supply your SSL
Certificate details prior to setting up the hosting account for you so that we can install
it with an assigned IP address. Secure Server access can be added to our other web hosting
accounts (except for Hello World) for a small setup and monthly fee.
Domain Name Registration
To get your own domain name (ie: www.yourname.com) you need to register the name through an
authorised registrar. We are authorised to register .com .net .org .biz .info .tv .cn .cn.com asia .cc .ca and .us
domain names. We can also register Australian domain names (ie: yourname.com.au) including
net.au org.au asn.au and id.au - as well as United Kingdom domains co.uk org.uk and me.uk -
