GENERAL WEB FEATURES

RAID 1: RAID ensures that, in the event of single hardware failure, no loss of data will be experienced.

Backups: We keep a backup of all your website files. Full backups are conducted weekly, while incremental backups are conducted on a daily basis. Backup files are kept for a maximum of two weeks. Please note, it is recommended that the client schedules regular backups of their web files with independent backup software as an additional safety feature.  SCOTTFREE does not guarantee all backups.

Restore Backups: The Restore Backup tool in konsoleH allows you to restore web files and databases from your recent backups at no additional charge.

KonsoleH Control Panel: konsoleH is our award-winning, proprietary control panel which gives you greater control and easy access to a wide range of tools and systems to manage your hosting services.

Graphic Visitor Statistics: Make use of our Graphical visitor statistics tool, AWStats, in konsoleH to interpret the raw traffic statistics in an easy to understand format.

EMAIL

Webmail: During business travels, simply use your online web mailbox from a laptop, internet cafe or remote office to stay in touch.

Alias Forwarding: Mail Forwarding is available, should you wish to forward an alias or copy the message destined for your mailbox to additional recipients by default.

Anti-virus Scanning: All incoming email is scanned for potentially harmful viruses that will be removed or quarantined before it reaches you. You should still use anti-virus software on your PC to ensure that you are fully protected against malicious attacks.

Anti-spam Filter: SCOTTFREE’s Spam Filter is built around a set of spam rules carefully developed to provide protection from spam. All mails are evaluated against these spam rules and are assigned a "spam score." This score determines whether the message is classified as spam.

Mailbox Autoresponder: Autoresponders are pre-written replies on the receipt of an email. They are commonly used to provide automated confirmation of receipts or 'out of office' messages.

Spamhaus Zen: Spamhaus Zen is a Blacklist licensed subscription service containing IP addresses that have a history of sending spam. Our mail server rejects all emails coming from these IP addresses. Spamhaus Zen is offered for free with every SCOTTFREE mailbox.

Mail Log: A mail log is a record of all emails sent or received from your mailbox. While you cannot retrieve the actual mail from the mail logs, you are able to view the send or delivery status of mails sent from or to your mailbox.

Fax-to-Mail-Service: The fax-to-mail services allow you to receive faxes directly into your inbox.

Additional Mailbox: R10.00 per month, payable annually.

PROGRAMMING AND DATABASES

PHP5: PHP is a popular, powerful script language and interpreter that is freely available and an alternative to Microsoft's Active Server Page (ASP) technology.

Full Range of MIME Types: MIME (Multi-Purpose Internet Mail Extensions) allows an exchange of different data file types on the Internet e.g. audio, video, images and application programs.

CGI Email (from handling code): CGI Email is a flexible, configurable script to enable the submission of a HTML form result by email.

MYSQL Databases: Dynamic websites often use databases to save information such as user profiles and blog entries. SCOTTFREE currently offers only the MySQL database.

Perl5: Perl is a script programming language that is similar in syntax to the C language. Perl path: /usr/bin/perl.

C, C++: C is a structured, procedural programming language that has been widely used both for operating systems and applications and that has had a wide following in the academic community. Many versions of Unix-based operating systems are written in C.

Custom CGI: CGI (common gateway interface) provides a way for data to be passed from the user's request to the application program and back to the user.

SVN/GIT Client-side Software: SVN and Git client-side software allows you to interact with your SVN or Git repositories directly from your SCOTTFREE hosting server.

Telnet  / SSH: Telnet is a user command for accessing your hosting account remotely, and allows more efficient and flexible manipulation of account files than FTP. SSH is similar to Telnet, but the connection to the remote host is encrypted.

Server Side Includes: Server Side Includes (SSI) provide basic scripting capability for your website. Your web site files must end in .shtml in order to correctly run the script.

GCC:  GCC is the GNU Compiler Collection supporting C, C++ and other languages.

DOMAINS

Domain registration: A domain name is a name used to locate and display a website. A domain name is an easy to remember name that refers to an IP address (such as 196.7.164.2) that computers use to determine what website to display. Depending on the TLD you choose to register (.co.za, .com, .de, etc) different costs apply. A new domain name can be registered through your konsoleH control panel.

Sub Domains: A Sub-Domain is an alternative naming option for websites in that it shares name of an existing parent domain e.g. development.your-domain.co.za is a sub-domain of your-domain.co.za. A Sub-domain can either be setup as a separate hosting package (Micro - Master) or share the resources of the parent domain (Parked or Multiple domain).

A Sub-domain does not get registered with a registrar; however normal package setup and hosting fees apply.

Parked Domains: A Parked domain points to the same website content as its parent domain. For example, you can park ‘your-domain.co.za’ on ‘your-domain.com’. If someone browses to ‘your-domain.co.za’ in a web browser, it will display the same website that ‘your-domain.com’ does.

Multiple Domains: Multiple domains are hosted on the sub-directory of a primary Business package. Each domain will have its own files. It includes the following:

  • One catch-all mailbox
  • Online Mail Administration tool
  • Online Web Mailbox

These domains share the traffic and disk space quotas of its parent account.

Reselling Multiple Domains on SCOTTFREE’s Web Hosting packages to a third party is not allowed. Multiple Domains are to be used solely for the Profile Owner’s own websites.
