Features that come with all hosting plans

 Subdomains (sub.domain.com) A subdomain is a sub level domain of a main domain. For example, ilove.webhostingbuzz.com is a subdomain..
 Domain Parking Got the .net version too? Not a problem, you can park it on top of your main domain. We've done it with www.webhostingbuzz.net.
 Control Panel This is used to manage your plan with us. We offer cPanel with all of our packages.
 Multi Language cPanel Our control panel is available in your language!
 Jailed Shell Access (SSH) For the advanced user that needs command line access. We offer jailed SSH access upon request on all plans.
 FTP Accounts Need more than one FTP login for a co-worker or someone else in your family? We offer multiple FTP logins with each plan.
 URL Redirect/Forwarding Point/forward your domain name to other websites with this feature.
 Awstats We offer AWstats with all hosting plans for comprehensive and real-time visitor information.
 Raw Access Logs Need the raw access logs to see what the web server is doing when someone visits your site? We have them available for you through cPanel.
 Dreamweaver Access You can connect to our servers directly from Dreamweaver, bypassing the need for FTP software. We also support all other web design software on our servers.
 File Manager Similar to FTP, this allows for full file, folder and directory management through your web browser.
 Index Manager Customize the way your folders/directories appear on the web with our index manager tool.

 DNS Zone Management Manage your domain with the various DNS tools we offer.
 Password Protect Directories You can use this option to place a password on one of your site's directories. Only users that you specify will be able to access this directory.
 Cron Jobs Full cron and cron job support is included with all hosting plans, allowing you to automate the running of your every day scripts.
 Mime Types Mime types tell browsers how to handle specific extensions. For example, the text/html mime type equates to .htm, .html, and .php 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.
 Apache Handlers We use the Apache webserver on all servers as the main tool to serve your pages. 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.
 Manage Open PGP Keys The Manage OpenPGP Keys Menu allows you to add public and private PGP keys to your account when extra security and encryption is needed.
 Hotlink Protection Someone stealing your images or bandwidth? Our hotlink protection tool allows you to protect all images on your website.
