Daily or Hourly Access Reports
Most servers have monthly or weekly access reports. We provide daily access reports with optional hourly reports! These comprehensive reports tell who entered your site, how long they stayed, what pages they looked at, where they entered, where they left, and much more. Our Urchin software provides the very best in ecommerce reporting.
Full CGI Access
CGI (Common Gateway Interface) is used to add advanced features to web sites, things like response forms, counters and fully automated electronic storefront applications. With our servers, you do not operate at the whim of your web provider, some of whom do not allow CGI scripts, or restrict the CGI-BIN (where scripts are stored), or delay for days before installing your scripts. Our server is "virtualized" so you have full control over your CGI-BIN directory. You can create CGI scripts from scratch or download them from the Internet or access some of the more popular CGI scripts.

Miva and Server Side Include Support
Our accounts include MivaScript (http://www.miva.com) which allows you to add advanced features to your site without CGI programming - things like database applications, automated shopping carts, interactive forums and on the fly HTML and GIF creation. We also support the less powerful but popular standard Server Side Include.

Optional Anonymous FTP Access (ftp.yourcompany.com)
Your web site comes complete with a Virtual FTP (File Transfer Protocol) account. This permits you to make software and data available to any web user with FTP capabilities. Your FTP address will be ftp.yourcompany.com and will be indistinguishable from company addresses on expensive dedicated FTP servers. (available on Merchant and Shared Hosting plan.)
Optional SSH Access
All hosting plans include optional SSH access (SSH access only on our shared and high speed mainline servers). You can log into your account and manipulate your area using standard UNIX commands. This is commonly used when developing CGI scripts.
phpMyAdmin can manage a whole MySQL-server (needs a super-user) but also a single database. To accomplish the latter you'll need a properly set up MySQL-user who can read/write only the desired database.
