Advanced Hosting Features
Feature Description
Macromedia Shockwave & Flash Support Macromedia Shockwave is a form of animation that is created using Macromedia Director. Using this program you can create complex and interesting animations combining sound, graphics and text. Flash also made by Macromedia is a similar product that lets you make animations. You can have your flash and director creations play in real time on your web page.
PHP with Caching PHP is an advanced server side scripting language that can be embedded into HTML which eliminates the need for a CGI-Bin directory and separate executable files. PHP is similar in syntax to JavaScript, and does not require optional components to perform advanced tasks, as does ASP. PHP scripts can be placed in any directory within your domain and can connect to a database. We are running the latest version of PHP with all the common PHP extensions such as ImageMagick and XSLT installed! We also utilize Zend Optimizer.
Perl, Tcl, C++ Perl is an interpreted language optimized for scanning arbitrary text files, extracting information from those text files, and printing reports based on that information. It's a derivation from C programming language and to a lesser extent from sed, awk, the Unix shell, and at least a dozen other tools and languages. Perl's process, file, and text manipulation facilities make it particularly well-suited for tasks involving quick prototyping, system utilities, software tools, system management tasks, database access, graphical programming, networking, and world wide web programming.
Perl Modules & Installs Perl is arguably the most popular scripting language for the web and consequently. There are thousands of modules that have been written to work with it. If you are using scripts that require specific perl modules that are not included in the default perl distribution then we will happily install it free of charge for you. Our servers are always updated with the most popular perl modules.
Server Side Includes You can use server-side include (SSI) directives to include text, graphics, or application information into a Web page just before sending content to the browser. SSI can be used to include, for example, a time/date stamp, a copyright notice, or a form for a customer to fill out and return. Including a file is an easy way to incorporate text or graphics that is repeated in many files. Rather than typing the information into every file, you use a simple statement that instructs the Web server to insert the file.
Pre-Installed CGI Scripts Adding interactivity to your website is easy with the pre-installed cgi scripts we include in every account. The scripts give you the option to add cool features to your webpage including the ability to add forms, counters and even a site search engine without any previous programming experience. Setup is easy through your control panel.
Free Java Chatroom All accounts come bundled with a Web-Based Java Chatroom. The robust chat application is written entirely in Java and allows you to setup an Internet chatroom for your users. Now users coming to your site can interact with your other site visitors! Start your own online community! The program supports an unlimited number of users in as many rooms as you wish to create. Visitors in the room can create chat rooms on the fly, and a scroll protection feature prevents people from abusive usage. It is very advanced and has private message support and customizable login, logout messages, and the ability to customize your chatroom.
MX Record Changes Your hosting account's MX record specifies how mail addressed to your domain is to be handled. By default, your mail is handled by our mail servers and distributed according to your Email Settings. Some users may wish to have mail handled by a remote mail server (e.g. In such instances, the MX record can be changed such that all mail addressed to your domain is redirected to the remote server. This service is exclusive and free to all customers.
WWW and Non-WWW Access A non-WWW domain name means that your Web site will appear in Web browsers whether someone types "" or "just "". For example, users can leave out "www" and just type your domain name in their browsers and they will still be able to access your site. This often increases traffic to your site, by giving you a second (and more simplified) domain name—with no extra InterNIC charges. Your regular domain name ( does not get affected and will not be changed and will still function normally.
MySQL Database MySQL is a relational database management system. The same statement is true of large systems such as Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server. If you are looking to step up from using Microsoft Access files, but aren't ready for the financial investment of one of the big two databases, then MySQL offers you a great middle ground. Many companies and individuals have started using MySQL for the development of their web projects and then never switched over to one of the larger databases because MySQL performed well enough that an upgrade was never needed. In fact, benchmarks on the MySQL web site show that MySQL outperforms SQL Server on just about every possible test.
phpMyAdmin This program is used to manage your MySQL databases on the web. It gives you the ability for you to create and drop databases, create, copy, drop and alter tables, delete, edit and add fields, execute any SQL-statement, even batch-queries, manage keys on fields, load text files into tables, create and read dumps of tables, export data to CSV values, administer multiple servers and single databases. phpMyAdmin is widely used and is an excellent program. If you want more information, you may visit the phpMyAdmin home page.
Sendmail Support Sendmail is the most common SMTP mail transfer agent on the thousands of mostly UNIX-based Internet hosts that handle mail routing and serve as post offices. Sendmail handles millions of mails each day!
SPAM Filter System Everyone hates Spam! Here at Lypha™ we give you the tools to combat spam. Our SPAM filter system allows you to set mail filters to keep mail with certain characteristics from getting through to your mail accounts. Lower the amount of SPAM you receive by carefully configuring the filters.
"Catch All" Email A catch-all mailbox is the default mailbox that receives all messages addressed to nonexistent or discontinued mailboxes. Stop losing important emails! For example, if a message is sent to instead of, you would still receive that message. This feature ensures that no incoming message will be rejected by the mail server for your domain. If only one person from your domain receives emails this feature can also eliminate the need for setting up different aliases, as this mailbox would automatically receive mail for any nonexistent mailbox within your domain.
Your E-mail SMTP Server ( Your outgoing email server, or SMTP server, is designated as This is compatible with Netscape's built-in email program, as well as Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, and basically any other mail program. Each virtual server has one outgoing mail server.
Mailing List Manager The Mailing List Manager is an easy to use interface to the Majordomo mailing list program. Through the Mailing List Manager, you can perform the following functions:
  • Create new mailing lists
  • Administer existing mailing lists
  • Allow people to subscribe and unsubscribe to your mailing lists
  • Send messages to your mailing lists
  • Allow other users to send messages to your mailing lists
Note: Mailing lists are restricted to text messages only for up to 8000 subscribers.
PGP Encrypted Email This feature allows users to encrypt files and email messages for privacy and authentication. With PGP, you can prove that you, and only you, sent a certain mail message, or that only you can read a certain message.
Customizable MIME types Advanced users can set MIME Type settings for your domain. Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) Types are a standard for describing different types of information. Originally meant to specify encoding for different types of information into text to send as email. The standard MIME is also used in other types of communication.
Custom 404 Error Pages It's a known fact that someone is going to run into an error on your site at one time or another! Why not give them a way back to your site instead of that boring 404 error page? Be creative and make your own 404 pages! Using your advanced control panel system you can do just that. The error page will be fully configurable and should be setup just like any other page on your Web Site. Tada! No more default 404 pages.
Password Protected Directories Keep prying eyes from seeing certain directories. Choose who can view parts of your web site by password protecting your directories. Any number of directories can be password protected using .htaccess and .htpasswd files. Directories can be password protected without hassle within seconds from your control panel.
Access to Raw Log Files You can download raw logs of your website activity to keep as a backup or analyze with your favorite off-line statistics program. Referrer, Agent and Raw Logs are accessible via your control panel.
Resource Meter The Resource Meter provides a real time detailed view of your usage levels. It shows how much disk space, data transfer, e-mail accounts, and mailing lists you have used on your shared hosting account.
Crontabs/job Cron is the ability to run programs based on the system clock. It gives you the ability to automate certain features. A crontab/job is a scheduled task that you want to automatically run at a scheduled time, e.g. run my backup at 8:30pm everyday. We allow you to run one cronjob a day. You can easily set them up via the control panel.
SSH Telnet Access Telnet/SSH access allows clients to take advantage of easy maintenance of their sites in a UNIX shell. Clients are able to roam through their sites, change permissions, move files, delete files, and debug scripts. Telnet access also allows for manipulation of mySQL databases. All accounts come with one shell account. SSH, or Secure Shell, is very similar to Telnet only that the login and password information (authentication) is encrypted from client to sever, making transmission of data more secure.
Network Troubleshooter & Tools Through your Virtual Control Panel, you can use various network tools to diagnose network problems. If you ever notice delays reaching your virtual server, you can use this tool simply by selecting the option from your Control Panel. This provides you with details on the connection between your local ISP and your virtual server and can help troubleshoot where the problem may be.
24/7 Server and Network Monitoring All servers on our network are continuously monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our automatic monitoring software continuously tests all ports such as e-mail, HTTP, Telnet, DNS, and FTP for failure, and instantly notifies our technicians in the event any problems are discovered. Our technicians are then immediately dispatched to the troubled server to correct the problem.
UPS and Generator Backup Each server and piece of hardware in our network is connected to a battery backup unit to prevent servers from being rebooted or even damaged in the likely case of a power surge or brown out. In addition, we have emergency generators standing by that could carry our network for days in an unlikely case of a long term power failure.
Daily tape back-ups We have a commitment of protecting our customer’s data. We strongly recommend our hosting clients to backup their Web site locally using the self service tools. At Lypha™ we archive and backup your files at our data center "just in case" something goes wrong.
Archive Manager/Self Serve Backup/Restore tools We make backing up simple and not complex. You may back up your entire website including mailboxes and databases with our online backup facility. Unlimited backups can be taken and stored on the server or your local hard drive and instantly restored at any time via your Web Control Panel.
Web Server Software Apache is the king of Web servers despite intense efforts by Microsoft and Netscape to gain dominance in the market. In fact, the latest Netcraft surveys indicate that the freeware Apache is widening its lead over the rest of the field. Why does Lypha™ use Apache for all of their servers? We choose Apache because of the rock-solid reliability, outstanding performance, and rich set of features it provides. All our servers run on the latest stable build of Apache Web Server.
Server Specs (Minimum) We only use IBM and Dell brand servers. Each of our servers are equipped with Dual Intel® Quad-Core XEON processors (8 cpus) with at least 6GB of RAM and reliable enterprise hard drives with RAID-1 redundancy. We custom build our servers to our exact needs and we keep spare parts in inventory in case of any hardware failure.
