The term Webmail or Web-based email refer to the implementation of an e-mail client as a Web application that allows users to access their e-mail through a Web browser, as an alternative to using a desktop-based client such as Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird or Eudora. All web hosting plans come standard with webmail. You can read your online e-mail using NeoMail, Horde, or SquirrelMail. All of these popular webmail applications allow you to read your e-mail, save them, keep an address book, and perform all of the other basic e-mail functions that you are used to. The main difference between webmail and offline e-mail applications, such as Eudora or Microsoft Outlook Express, is that all of these functions are performed online rather than on your own computer, and offline applications generally provide more features. Webmail is optional. You can still use your favorite offline e-mail applications if you prefer. You can even use a combination of webmail applications and another tool - you can check your e-mail online, perhaps when you're at work, and download your e-mail to your computer when you get home. You can automatically configure Outlook Express, or manually configure other mail applications to read your e-mail offline. Compare our web hosting plans and sign up today.

Parked domain is an inactive domain reserved for later use or one that points to another existing domain. You can set up a domain name that you own to point to another domain name. This is known as "parking" a domain. Example: You own the business.co.nz and innovation.co.nz domain names. You already have a web site for business.co.nz, but you do not want to create a new web site for innovation.co.nz at the moment. By parking innovation.co.nz on top of business.co.nz, all URLs for innovation.co.nz will automatically go to business.co.nz instead. Compare our web hosting plans to find the plan with the number parked domains you require. Remember, it is always easy to add additional parked domains.

Parked Domains
A file manager or file browser is a computer program that provides a user interface to work with file systems. They are very useful for speeding up interaction with files. The most common operations on files are create, open, edit, view, print, play, rename, move, copy, delete, attributes, properties, search/find, and permissions. The file manager in our control panel allows you to modify the files and contents of files that are part of your website. The file manager allows point-and-click uploading, editing, copying, and more. You can access the files that make up your website through the file manager or standard FTP.

An add-on domain is a domain name that points to a subdirectory within your account. For example, you may want innovation.org.nz to point to business.org.nz/innovation/. Addon domains must be registered domain names that you own and configured to point to your web site's servers. Compare our web hosting plans, to find the plan with the number addon domains you require. Remember it is always eay to add additional addon domains.

MySQL is the most popular database for web sites, and is used by the majority of applications and web sites you will find online; all of our Fantastico scripts use MySQL. MySQL is a database written and maintained by a large community of developers and is widely supported. All Renderhosting web hosting plans come with access to MySQL and an easy to use interface for administration and configuration. However, when using Fantastico or other scripts we provide your MySQL database is automatically installed and configured! For more information on MySQL, documentation and tools visit www.MySQL.com. Compare our web hosting plans and determine the amount of MySQL databases you need. It's easy to upgrade plans or add additional databases at anytime. Most scripts require only one MySQL database.

MySQL Databases
Redirects or URL redirection, also called URL forwarding, domain redirection and domain forwarding, is a technique on the World Wide Web for making a web page available under many URLs that has been moved to another site or address. All Renderhosting.net accounts come with Unlimited redirects. The Redirects area allows you to redirect Internet traffic from one web page to another. This is usually used when a web page has been moved to another location. Two types of redirects are offered: temporary and permanent. Temporary redirects tell the Internet traffic agents (browsers, search engines, etc.) that this is only a temporary redirection, and that they should return to this initial location again in the future for the same page. Permanent redirects tell the Internet traffic agents to go to the redirection address in the future. Setting up unlimited redirects is easy though our web hosting control panel.

In the field of information technology, backup refers to the copying of data so that these additional copies may be restored after a data loss event. Backups are useful primarily for two purposes: to restore a computer to an operational state following a disaster (called disaster recovery) and to restore small numbers of files after they have been accidentally deleted or corrupted. Backups differ from archives in the sense that archives are the primary copy of data and backups are a secondary copy of data. Backups are typically that last line of defense against data loss, and consequently the least granular and the least convenient to use. All Renderhosting.net web hosting plans offer a backup area allowing you to download the daily, weekly, or monthly backup file of your entire web site, or a particular MySQL, alias, or filter backup file. If your computer crashes, or your personal backups are destroyed, these files allow you to recover your site in a convenient manner (you could also use FTP to download each file, but it would take much longer as the files are not compressed).
