Add-on Domains
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.
Apache Handlers
Apache handlers tell the server how to deal with web files that need to be processed on the server. Apache handlers allow you to control what Apache will do with certain file types. When Apache sees a file, it has an action built in for that file type, and will perform that action. If you wish Apache to do a different action, you will need to make a handler to tell Apache to perform that action. For example, if you use a file type that requires a special service to run it, such as a movie file (.mpg) that you wish to run through a specific streaming server, you need to tell Apache to treat these files differently.

Backup System
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).
Backups
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.

cgi-bin
The Common Gateway Interface (CGI) is a standard protocol for interfacing external application software with an information server, commonly a web server. This allows the server to pass requests from a client web browser to the external application. The web server can then return the output from the application to the web browser. Web servers often have a cgi-bin directory at the base of the domain, to hold executable files.

MIME Types
Mime types tell browsers how to handle specific extensions of MIME. MIME types are specified in two parts, the top-level media type declares the general type of media, and the subtype defines the specific format for that media. The two are separated by a forward slash, top-level/subtype.

For example, the text/html mime type equates to .htm, .html, and .shtml extensions on most servers, and this tells your browser to interpret all files with those extensions as HTML files. You can alter or add new mime types specifically for your site (note that you can not alter the system defined mime type values). MIME types are often used to handle new technologies as they appear. When WAP technology first appeared no one had these extensions set up on their server. With mime types, however, you could have set it up yourself and begun serving WAP pages immediately.

Perl

Its major features are that it's easy to use, supports both procedural and object-oriented (OO) programming, has powerful built-in support for text processing, and has one of the world's most impressive collections of third-party modules.

Perl is a very popular programming language for online applications. Most CGI scripts are written in Perl, so chances are if it's something you need for your site, someone has written it in Perl (or PHP).

Perl is often used as a glue language, tying together systems and interfaces that were not specifically designed to interoperate, and for "data munging", ie. converting or processing large amounts of data for tasks like creating reports. In fact, these strengths are intimately linked. The combination makes perl a popular all-purpose tool for system administrators, particularly as short programs can be entered and run on a single command line.


PHP
All Renderhosting.net web hosting accounts work with php scripts. PHP is a widely-used general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for Web development and can be embedded into HTML.

PHP, short for "PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor", is an open-source, reflective programming language used mainly for developing server-side applications and dynamic web content, and more recently, other software.

PHP allows interaction with a large number of relational database management systems, such as MySQL, Oracle, IBM DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, PostgreSQL and SQLite. PHP runs on most major operating systems, including UNIX, Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X, and can interact with many major web servers. The official PHP website contains extensive documentation. The Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP (LAMP) architecture has become popular in the Web industry as a way of deploying inexpensive, reliable, scalable, secure web applications. (The 'P' in LAMP can also stand for Perl or Python.) Alternatively, the Windows, IIS, MySQL, PHP (WIMP) and Windows, Apache, MySQL, PHP (WAMP) architectures exist as alternatives for those wishing to use Windows as their server operating system.

PHP is dynamically typed. That is, the rules are not as strict with variables. They do not have to be declared and they can hold any type of object. Arrays are heterogenous, meaning a single array can contain objects of more than one type. There is a command line interface, as well as GUI libraries such as the Gimp Tool Kit (GTK+) and text mode libraries like Ncurses and Newt.

PHP is the result of the efforts of many contributors. It is licensed under a BSD-style license, the PHP license. Since version 4, it has been powered by the Zend engine.

POP3 allows e-mail applications such as outlook express and Eudora to retrieve e-mail from the server. All e-mail accounts with Renderhosting.net web hosting plans allow POP3, IMAP and webmail access.

POP3 is designed to delete mail on the server as soon as the user has downloaded it. However, some implementations allow users or an administrator to specify that mail be saved for some period of time. POP can be thought of as a "store-and-forward" service.

Redirects
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.

The standard e-mail protocol on the Internet and part of the TCP/IP protocol suite. SMTP defines the message format and the message transfer agent (MTA), which stores and forwards the mail. SMTP was originally designed for only plain text (ASCII text), but MIME and other encoding methods enable executable programs and multimedia files to be attached to and transported with the e-mail message.

Spam Assassin is a mail filter written in Perl installed on the mail server used to identify spam (Junk E-mail) using a wide range of heuristic tests on mail headers and body text. It checks for spam using a large number of pre-set rules that check the header, body, and sender of all e-mail messages sent to your domain mailbox.

"SpamAssassin is a mature, widely-deployed open source project that serves as a mail filter to identify spam, also known as unsolicited commercial e-mail (UCE). SpamAssassin uses a variety of mechanisms including header and text analysis, Bayesian filtering, DNS blocklists, and collaborative filtering databases. SpamAssassin runs on a server, and filters spam before it reaches your mailbox."
Storage / Disk Space
Hosting your web site requires an amount of storage on our servers, just like your personal computer uses its hard drive to store your documents and photos. Most web sites require very little storage. Our entire suite of web hosting plans offers ample storage to host nearly any type of web site. For instance, if your site contains mainly text and only a few images you could literally have tens of thousands of web pages on even the personal web hosting plan.

Image and video use quite a bit more storage/space than text. However, if you took a photo on a digital camera at 640x480 resolution it would usually take about 60-80 kilobytes (KB) of storage; this means you could have a web site with over 5 thousand photos on the personal plan.

It's easy to view the amount of storage you use in our web hosting control panel.

Compare our web hosting plans and determine the amount of storage you need. Is easy to upgrade plans or add additional storage at anytime.
Sub Domains

For example SUBDOMAIN.domain.com will also be www.domain.com/SUBDOMAIN.

Transfer / Bandwidth
Data transfer, which is sometimes referred to as bandwidth, is a measurement of how much data travels in and out of your website or account. You can figure out how much data transfer you will require by estimating your average page size (including graphics!) and multiplying it by the number of page views you expect to have in a month.

When people visit your web site, their web browser makes a request for our server to send the appropriate files that make up one or more of your web pages: HTML, PHP, images, CGI scripts, etc. Each file the server sends uses a small amount of transfer bandwidth. Every month the amount of transfer you use is reset. Many web sites receive thousands of visits per month and use less than 5GB of transfer.

You can easily monitor the amount of transfer you use in the control panel.

Compare our web hosting plans and determine the amount of transfer/bandwidth you need. It's easy to upgrade plans or add additional transfer at any time.

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.
