If your domain name is mycompany.com, by using this feature you can create domains like toronto.mycompany.com, calgary.mycompany.com, newyork.mycompany.com etc. If your website is a family site e.g. myfamily.com, your family members can have their own web sites like john.myfamily.com, jane.myfamily.com etc. When you create a sub domain you have an option to either use the same FTP credentials as the master domain and simply allow the sub domain files to be stored under a sub directory in the master domain, or create a separate FTP login account and setup the sub domain to have its own space.
By using this feature you can create multiple aliases to redirect the users to your primary domain while displaying the URL they requested. For example if your domain name is mycompany.com and you create an alias mycompany.net, when somebody types in mycompany.net they will see the contents of mycompany.com while the URL will still say mycompany.net.

IMAP, POP3 & Outlook Enabled
All our packages are IMAP, POP3 & Outlook Enabled. That means you can use software like Outlook Express or Microsoft Outlook to send and receive emails. Please visit the support page for details. Please note that we do not provide SMTP service. That means if you decide to use Outlook Express or Microsoft Outlook, you will need to use your ISP's SMTP server to send emails. Your incoming mail server would be mail.yourdomain.com. You can also use web mail to check emails. To access web mail you can visit http://webmail.yourdomain.com where yourdomain.com is actual URL of your domain. We support IMAP protocol, which means there is a separate folder for outgoing mails as well as drafts unlike the other companies who only support POP3. Another benefit of IMAP is that it comes with Calendar.
By using the Web Mail tool you can check your emails from anywhere in the world. Just visit our website and click on the WebMail link on top right corner and login with your email address and password.

Free Automatic Nightly Website & Email Backups
Even though we guarantee 99.9% uptime and use state-of-the-art servers, nobody can 100% guarantee that a servers' hardware will never fail or a disaster will never happen. To ensure your data is secure, we run backups every night to backup your web site files and emails. The backup is then FTP'd to a remote location so in case of a disaster it can be retrieved easily and restored back. There is no additional cost to make the backup, but you may be charged a fee of $30 if you loose your data or damage your files and request a restore.
Custom Error Documents
By using this option you can customize Page not found 404 and other error messages.

You can show them the site map on error page also.
