ADVANCED 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.

A 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.

Our DELUXE Website Hosting Package includes up to 10 MySQL databases – with our PREMIUM Package, you may have up to 100 MySQL databases.

NOTE: programming for database driven features is available but is NOT included in our standard website design/redesign agreement.

Perl, PHP4, Python, Ruby and TCL:
We always do our best to provide our customers with the latest and most stable versions of available programming languages. We offer support for Perl, PHP4, Python, Ruby and TCL.

Perl stands for Practical Extraction and Report Language. It is the most widely used language for CGI. The path to Perl is /usr/bin/perl

PHP 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:

IMPORTANT: Perl, PHP4, Python, Ruby and TCL programming is available but is NOT included in our standard website design/redesign agreement.

CGI scripts:
CGI (which is a protocol that stands for Common Gateway Interface) is used to accomplish tasks, such as the operation of a hit counter or guestbook, that are not supported by basic HTML.
Essentially it is a place where the Web server knows executable content lives.
Your cgi-bin scripts are put in the subdirectory named "cgi-bin". This directory is set up with special permissions to execute CGI scripts.
IMPORTANT: CGI 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.

Your 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 per year.

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.

Pre-Installed Scripts:

Site Search Engine: Take advantage of our search engine feature that will help your Web site visitors search throughout your site. Note: this is a very basic engine, don’t expect Google level technology with your intra-site searches.

Formmail: If you host your site with us, Cole WebMarketing can create a interactive form on your Web page that will collect information and then e-mail the results to an e-mail address of your choosing. All forms are "spam protected" by CAPTCHA (squiggly letters & numbers that humans can read but spam robots can not).

Guestbook: Guestbook is the place where the visitors to your website can post their opinions, recommendations or complaints. Such a feature can provide useful feedback although “anyone can write anything” and post it on your website. You’ve been warned.

WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) is a specification for a set of communication protocols to standardize the way that wireless devices, such as cellular telephones and PDA devices, can be used for accessing information over the internet.

Servers are configured to handle applications and scripts that deliver WAP content.

NOTE: ASP (Active Server Page) websites and certain other types of sites and “streaming” audio or video are NOT available with the above hosting programs but Cole WebMarketing can offer special alternative hosting solutions if you require these features.

All of these hosting features, plus the Basic Features, are included with
both the DELUXE & PREMIUM Hosting Plans.
