Basic Hosting Features
Feature Description
Your Own Domain Hosting Once you register your domain you can go live by getting your website hosted By Lypha™ (
Disk Storage Space Disk storage space refers to the amount of server disk storage specifically allocated to your shared hosting account. This space can be used to store your html files, graphics, audio clips, POP3 mail messages, pdfs, and other files that make up your web site. At Lypha™ we make sure you'll be satisfied because each shared plan includes a very generous amount of disk space which is substantially more than what our competition provides.
Monthly Data Transfer Monthly data transfer is the amount of information that is transmitted to/from your Web space. At Lypha™ we provide a generous amount of bandwidth with all plans. You can login to your account and view your monthly transfer in your control panel. Each time a picture or HTML page is viewed by a visitor, you upload data using FTP, or email is received it adds to your monthly data transfer. The average HIT is approximately 10k. This would mean that a transfer limit of 4.0 Gigabytes would allow 400,000 hits for your account.

*A note on Unlimited Transfer offerings* A question that comes up often is, “Why doesn't Lypha™ offer unlimited bandwidth?” The answer is simple. The numerous web hosting providers who exaggerate and offer unlimited bandwidth are actually lying and not telling you the truth. Always read the fine print! If you read the fine print, "Unlimited bandwidth means you may not use more then 10% of our resources". This usually means they cut you off at 50 megabytes per day. At Lypha™ we will not cut you off due to extra usage.
Unmetered Hits We do not meter hits to your site. We will not track or restrict the number of visitors accessing your website or the number of pages that are viewed.
OS Platform Lypha™ servers are stable. Our systems are Linux-based which is an operating system known worldwide for its stability and scalability. Our systems are secure. Being the most used hosting platform on the Internet today, it suits the growing needs of both beginner and advanced web hosts.
E-mail Accounts
Users don't have to strictly rely on email forwarding. Users have the ability to setup POP3/IMAP accounts. Clients can retrieve their email directly from their POP3 & IMAP mailboxes on the mail server using email programs such as Eudora, Microsoft Outlook or web based email. When setting up a POP account you'll be making an . Your POP3 / IMAP accounts may be managed in an easy fashion via your control panel.
Email Auto Responders Auto responders are a very useful tool for distributing information to interested prospects. An Auto responder is just what it sounds like. An auto responder is simply a program which instantly sends a pre-written message back to a person who sends an e-mail to a specified address. (take vacations and have your auto responder on to let people know when you'll be back online answering emails). For instance, if a customer were to send an email order to, you could arrange for a Thank You email to be automatically sent to them. You may setup email auto responders with ease.
Email Forwarders E-mail forwarders are accounts which simply forward e-mail to another Email address that you specified when setting it up. E-mail sent to separate POP3 mail accounts end up in a single location. Email Forwarders can easily be removed/added via our control panel. (ex: being forwarded to
Email Alias An email alias is basically another name for a specific email account. It allows you to create alternative email addresses without creating a user account. What an alias does is to point to a specific email address. For example, you can have an alias called "help" and forward it to However, you won't be able to send emails from an alias, because it is not a real email account.
Web-based Email Access (Webmail) In addition to your POP3 email accounts, you also have web based mail that allows you to access your email accounts from any browser, anywhere in the world. This is a nice feature for someone who travels or needs access to email at different locations.

SSL Server (SSL) Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a protocol which encrypts all data communicated between client/server to ensure there can be no intercepts of the data by third parties and ensures that communication is between the intended party. Encryption is very important when taking credit card numbers, or posting personal or confidential information over the Internet. Although it's way more likely for someone to steal your credit card number when you order over the telephone, we still offer you full, unlimited access to our secure server. By using our server's certificate, you save hundreds of dollars! We also offer the option to install your own personalized SSL Certificate. Find out more about SSL.
