Explanation / definition of the features.

A Virtual Domain means having your own domain name without having to install expensive server hardware and software. With a Virtual Domain, you utilize our server's storage space, however, you are still professionally represented via your own person Internet web address domain name (http://www.yourname.com - or - http://yourname.com) and by your own personal email address domain name (you@yourname.com).
 

Domain
Fee

Verisign (Network Solutions) charges $35 per year. There are other domain name registrars available, many for less than half that amount. We refer our clients to a reliable registrar that has excellent features, as well as a top-notch reputation on the Internet. Unlike some other hosts and developers, Autumn Web makes sure our customers are listed as the admininistrative contact, so you have control of your domain name.
 

Disk
Space

How much room for your files on the server. The total of all files: HTML, graphics, CGI scripts imported, even email storage are all part of the disk space.
 

Site
Traffic 1

Every visit to your pages creates files being downloaded from your site. If a visitor views *one* HTML page that is 100 kb, had graphics on it that totaled 100 kb, and they downloaded a zipped file of 100 kb, then you have experienced 300 kb of traffic.
basically:
1,000 bytes = 1 kilobyte (kb or KB)
1,000 kilobytes = 1 megabyte (mb or MB)
1,000 megabytes = 1 gigabyte (gb or GB)
1 Generally there is a $ per gigabyte of excess traffic per month charge.
 

Access

Your HTML and graphics files can be uploaded to the server via FTP program or via the Control Panel.
 

POP
Email

Accessing your email account through an email client, such as Thunderbird.
 

CGI-
email +
Form-

Email
Aliases

You can have a <sales@yourdomain>, <owner@yourdomain>, <George@yourdomain>, or any number of individuals or departments with their own email address, without the need for additional POP accounts.
 

Email
Redirects

If you want to have email redirected to other email accounts, i.e.:
email sent to Joe@yourdomain forwarded to Joe@prodigy and
email sent to Mary@yourdomain forwarded to Mary2975@aol, email sent to Sales@yourdomain sent to BOTH Joe and Mary. You can also have a copy of email sent to webmaster@yourdomain to be forwarded to the person or company that created your page, to receive reports of link errors, etc.
