FEATURES of Website Hosting by Charlotte, NC based Cole WebMarketing
If you wish to have any newsgroups, message boards, forums etc.
on your website you will need a database.
database is a structured collection of data. It may be anything
from a simple shopping list to a picture gallery or vast amounts
of information in a corporate network. To add, access and process
data stored in a computer database, you need a database management
system such as MySQL.
DELUXE Website Hosting Package includes up to 10 MySQL databases – with our
PREMIUM Package, you may have up to 100 MySQL databases.
Perl, PHP4, Python, Ruby and TCL:

stands for Practical Extraction and Report Language. It is the
most widely used language for CGI. The path to Perl is /usr/bin/perl
is a server-side HTML embedded scripting language that was developed
in C and is designed especially for working with relational database
systems. Self-referentially short for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor,
an open source, server-side, HTML embedded scripting language
used to create dynamic Web pages. In an HTML document, PHP script
(similar syntax to that of Perl or C ) is enclosed within special
PHP tags. Because PHP is embedded within tags, the author can
jump between HTML and PHP (similar to ASP and Cold Fusion) instead
of having to rely on heavy amounts of code to output HTML. And,
because PHP is executed on the server, the client cannot view
the PHP code. PHP can perform any task that any CGI program can
do, but its strength lies in its compatibility with many types
of databases. Also, PHP can talk across networks using IMAP,
SNMP, NNTP, POP3, or HTTP. PHP was created sometime in 1994 by
Rasmus Lerdorf. Our servers can run php-nuke. For detailed information
regarding PHP, you can go to their online manual: http://www.php.net/manual
IMPORTANT: Perl, PHP4, Python, Ruby and TCL programming is available
but is NOT included in our standard website design/redesign agreement.

SSL is a protocol that uses encryption to safeguard the transmission
of sensitive data. Compatible with all modern browsers, it is wise
to use SSL when you process credit card transactions on your website,
or when you have password-protected areas of your site.
site visitors will be able to connect through SSL using a shared
security certificate. If you wish to install a personal security
certificate (dedicated to your domain only), you need to purchase
one from a certificate authority.
NOTE: Our fee to install a personal security certificate is $60
Servers support Server Side Includes (SSI), a method of calling
code from within a page. SSI makes it possible for you to include
a snippet of HTML code into a page or a group of pages.
