Glossary of Domain Hosting Terms


Anonymous FTP

    Enabling anonymous FTP allows visitors to access your Web site to download files (like Zip files) without a unique ID and password .

Autoresponders / Vacation Reply

    You can use an autoresponder to send an automated response to incoming e-mail sent to a specified address.

Bandwidth

    The range of transmission frequency a network can use. The greater the bandwidth the more information that can be transferred over that network at one time. The term bandwidth also broadly includes throughput, meaning the amount of data sent.

CGI-BIN Access

    All Bronze and higher domain hosting customers have access to a personal cgi-bin directory in which you can place your own custom CGI scripts. CGI scripts are often used to accomplish tasks which are not supported by basic HTML, such as a 'hit' counter or guest book. This directory can be used to set up scripts that you write or find elsewhere on the Web.

Data Transfer / Hits

    In general, any outward-bound traffic from a Web site, with the exception of e-mail, is considered data transfer. For example, each time a Web page, image, midi file, QuickTime video, etc. is loaded, data transfer is generated. Sidetrips places no limits on your Hits like some hosting companies.

Disc Space

    Disk storage space refers to the amount of server disk storage specifically allocated to your account. This space is used to store your website files, graphics, and other files that make up your Web site. Each of our plans includes a specified allotment of disk storage space though most websites are less than 500 mb.

Domain Name Registration

Email Accounts

    In addition to mail forwarding, users have the option to retrieve e-mail directly from POP3 mailboxes on the mail server using an e-mail program. Each of our plans featuring email includes a webmaster@yourdomain POP account which can receive all e-mail and control the settings for any optional configurable POP accounts. Each of our plans also offers a specified number of configurable POP accounts. Each user is allocated 10Mb for email to allow for receiving of large files. The additional POPs can be assigned unique IDs and passwords to ensure privacy. You can also purchase additional POPs if needed.

Email Aliasing

    Email aliasing allows you to setup multiple email addresses that funnel all messages received into a single POP email box for convenience.

Email Forwarding

    Email forwarding allows you to automatically forward any email that arrives in your email box to any other email account. This allows you to forward email to your current email account for instance for your convenience.

Email Control panel

    Sidetrips includes a web browser based control panel that you can use to administer your POP email accounts. You can add and delete email accounts under your domain, change your password, setup autoresponders and mailing lists. All of these features are available to you at all times through a webpage which you can view with your browser. Of course, you can send and receive email through the Control Panel including attachments and signature files. This means you can check your email from any computer in the world on the Internet. You are no longer tied to your computer to handle your customer's needs.
