explained in detail below. Not all of the virtual accounts we offer
include the features explained below. For the breakdown, look at our
Setup: Setup includes
all parts of establishing your domain name on our network. We register
or transfer your domain with the Internic, setup your account on our
server, and configure the control panel for your account.
Our email addresses are very flexible. You can set them up as POP boxes
which store mail, email aliases which redirect mail to another box, or
Disk Space (MB):
One MB of disk space can hold several hundred text pages or images. Most
sites use less than one MB of disk space.
This is the amount of
network traffic related to your domain. A large number of sites have
less than 1000MB of traffic per month, but popular sites could use three
or four times that.
True Domain Name:
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.securebiz.com, or www.di.to. 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
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.
Free Domain Registration:
We will automatically register your domain name if you so choose.
The File Manager is a very powerful feature. It allows you to manipulate
all the files in your web site. You are able to create, delete, and move
your files. 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
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.
FTP is used to upload and download files. Almost all site design
programs like Adobe Pagemill, Macromedia Dreamweaver, GoLive HotDog,
Allaire HomeSite, CyberStudio, HotMetal Pro, Netscape Communicator and
NetObjects Fusion use FTP to maintain your site.
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.

interactive you need to be able to run computer programs in your own cgi-bin.

State of the Art NOC:
realize that down time is not an option for your server. We have
partnershiped with technically strong companies to ensure that your site
will remain up and running on the web 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
InPath's web servers are custom-built industrial grade machines
designed for a 24/7 web serving environment. Our Network Operations
Center (NOC) is equipped with raised flooring, fire prevention, standby
machines, industry-leading Liebert uninterruptable power supplies (UPS)
and a temperature-controlled environment, all located in a secure,
Daily Backup: Your account is backed up daily to assure your data
is restored quickly in the event of a drive failure.
24/7 Monitoring: Your server is monitored
internally and externally on all the standard ports. If the monitor
cannot restart a failed port, a technician is notified and attends to
the problem immediately
Processor Type: The latest Intel processors
are used in every machine.
Standby Server: A hallmark of our service
and one of the reasons for our fantastic uptime is our policy of having
servers on standby. In the event of a server failure, there are always
additional servers on standby. The drive of the failed server is swaped
to a new one, and the diagnosis on the failed machine are done later.
Redundant Power Backup: Two 50 kilowatt 480Volt Liebert UPS's
supply conditioned power to main PDU (power distribution unit), which
continually balances and monitors every aspect of the power supplied to
the NOC, leaving little doubt we could ever be down due to a power

sound to a web site without using lots of bandwidth. All the popular
MIDI mime types are supported on our domain.
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.
MIME Type Manager: The ability to manage
mime types gives you full control of which software programs will work
with your site. Mime types are managed through the control panel.
