We are pleased to offer generous amounts of transfer on our Starter, Business and Corporate accounts, Please see our account policies for further details.
600+ Mbps CONNECTION TO THE INTERNET
Our total connectivity to the Internet is over 600 Mbps! That is very fast! We have a 99.9% uptime track record - in most months your site will be online 100% of the time. Our network is fully switched and all servers are fed from a multi-homed backbone and have conditioned UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply) power that will run if utility power fails. The UPS power subsystem is N+1 redundant with instantaneous failover in case the primary UPS fails. In the event of an extended power outage, an on-site diesel generator can run indefinitely. The generator is regularly tested to ensure that it will continue to function in the event of an emergency.

Our network fully supports BGP4 which provides great redundancy and helps your data avoid Internet trouble spots. Our facility has full backup power including a backup generator in case of extended power outages. The center is monitored 24 hours a day by a comprehensive security system supplemented by video surveillance equipment.
POP3 EMAIL ACCOUNTS
We will set you up to receive email messages at you@yourdomain.com. A POP email account is basically a mailbox on our server which you can access through mail software such as Microsoft Outlook or web-based systems such as NeoMail.

UNLIMITED EMAIL ACCOUNTS
When you host your site with us, you have access to unlimited email accounts @yourdomain.com the only limitation is the disk space of the account you have purchased.

Each mailbox you setup can be managed through the control panel that comes with each hosting account, with total control of allowable disk space per email account etc. They also come with a browser-based interface (WebMail) to access your indavidual email accounts from any computer, anywhere without requiring an email client program (OutLook) to do so.
AUTORESPONDERS
Autoresponders are a great marketing tool and can save you time answering common questions. You can set up an autoresponder so that when a message is sent to, say, info@yourdomain.com, then your pre-written message is automatically returned to the sender. All our hosting packages allow you to set up an unlimited number of these.
EMAIL FORWARDING
You can choose to forward your email to a different account anywhere on the web. This is easily achieved through a web-based interface. Back To Top

All our customers have access to comprehensive documentation. The link to the documentation is found at the bottom of your control panel. It is a truly useful facility which will help you learn more about your site and will save you time by providing you with easily accessible answers to your questions. You can view this through our Control Panel Demo it is not a working demo (for security reasons) however it shows all the features and gives a full explanation of each.
CGI BIN READY-TO-USE SCRIPTS
We set you up with a CGI Bin and pre-install a set of useful scripts for you. Many hosting companies claim to provide "pre-installed" scripts but they do not actually configure them for you, so they are not ready to use. We install and configure your CGI scripts so that you don't need to know any CGI in order to use them. The scripts we provide include:
  • Add On Scripts:
    Oscommerce
    PHP-Nuke
    Invision Board

  • FormMail Clone
  • cgiemail
  • EntropySearch
  • EntropyBanner
FRONTPAGE SERVER EXTENSIONS
If you have built your site with FrontPage and you are using any FrontPage active elements such as hit counters, search forms and so on, then you will need to have the FrontPage Server Extensions installed on your site. The server extensions also make it possible for you to publish your site using FrontPage, and allow you to edit your site directly on the Internet using FrontPage. Our servers support the server extensions for Microsoft FrontPage 2002/2000/98/97. The extensions are included for free on all accounts.
FTP ACCESS
You can access your account via FTP 24 hours a day, every day of the year. You can upload you site using FTP, or you can use the Bright-Byte control panel instead. Back To Top
DETAILED SITE STATISTICS
You have access to daily statistical reports about your site's traffic. The reports will include information about visitors, page views, file accesses, referrers, browsers used by your visitors, platforms used by your visitors, visitors' hosts, visitors' top-level domains, and the most common entry and exit pages. These reports are among the most detailed and useful around, but you will also have access to your raw log files in case you want to examine the data further.
SERVER SIDE INCLUDES
Server side includes are a neat and simple way of repeating blocks of HTML code in different web pages. The file containing repetitive HTML code can be included in any page(s) you like with only one line of HTML code (a server side include statement).
PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES AND DEVELOPMENT TOOLS
Our servers support C/C++, Perl 5, PHP and Python. Your web pages can also include Java applets (though not java servlets).
PASSWORD PROTECTED DIRECTORIES
You can restrict access to any directory on your site so that visitors are prompted for a user name and password in order to access any files in the directory.
CUSTOMIZED ERROR PAGEs
When a visitor to your site tries to access a page that does not exist or a page they are not allowed to access etc, they will usually receive Apache's default error message. If you prefer, you can set up your account so that your own customized error pages are displayed instead, perhaps with a link to your home page (or whatever you like).

Back To Top
MySQL DATABASE
An excellent database package. Our servers also support PHP which works very neatly with MySQL. For more information on the way these two products work together you may like to review the WebMonkey PHP/MySQL Tutorial. For further information about MySQL, please refer to the MySQL Home Page.
E-COMMERCE SUITE
Bright-Byte offers you the choice of three free shopping carts: All Carts include:
  • Easy-to-use setup and management tools
  • Payment gateways can be easily plugged in
  • No technical skills required
The shopping carts can be used in conjunction with many third-party credit card payment gateway services. Alternatively, payments can be received securely online using our SSL/GPG facilities (for accounts with SSL/GPG access only), and then processed offline using your regular merchant account.

We have tried to make this system as easy as possible to use. The setup and maintenance is all browser-based and no CGI programming is required. In most cases all you need to do is fill out some forms in our Control Panel to get the system working the way you like it.

Using our Control Panel you can alter your shopping cart's appearance, tax, shipping, and payment options.

The shopping carts also come with an easy-to-use Catalog Manager. The Catalog Manager enables you to add, edit and delete shopping cart items with ease.

It really is a snap!

GNU PRIVACY GUARD (GPG)
GPG (GNU Privacy Guard) is an OpenPGP compliant application which enables you to encrypt data on your web site. It is compatible with PGP 5.x and has very similar functionality. If your site comes with secure server access, we will set up GPG for you for free. If you intend to receive sensitive information over the web, SSL access alone does not guarantee the safety of your data. SSL keeps the information safe as it travels to your web site, but does not provide any protection once the data arrives. GPG can be used to immediately encrypt the data when it arrives at your web site - you only decrypt it once you have downloaded it to your hard drive. That gives you peace of mind knowing that the information your customers enter into your secure form will be safe all the way across the web. We install a special version of FormMail on your secure server so that, when you receive sensitive information via your secure server, you can have the information immediately encrypted and mailed to you in encrypted form. Once you have retrieved your mail from the server, it can be easily and safely decrypted on your hard drive using your PGP or GPG software.
TECHNICAL SUPPORT
We provide professional, responsive customer service via email 7 days a week. We also provide a detailed online manual and other useful resources such as help through cPanel Documentation.
