Catch All E-Mail
The network has been designed using the trademarked Power PlusMail System to automatically capture any name that may be sent to your domain name. As long as you do not remove or modify the default line in your .redirect file, anything sent to @yourname.com will automatically be forwarded to your POP+Telnet account (email@example.com). For domain names that have been purchased through us, then this also means that mail addressed to AnyName@yourdomain.com will be delivered to any e-mail address you specify (for example, your e-mail account provided by your ISP, or a free e-mail account such as by yahoo or hotmail).
C++ is an object-oriented enhancement of the C programming language.
CGI ("Common Gateway Inferface") refers to the computer programs running on a Web server that can be invoked from a WWW page at the browser.

Many of the scripts that we include as standard features for our accounts have come from there.
Chat rooms can be used for building customer help desks, multimedia conference rooms, sales counters, distance learning centers, and on-line communities.

E-Mail Redirects (Forwarding)

Secure Shell Access (SSH)
Quoted directly from ssh.org, "SSH Secure Shell is the standard for remote logins and file transfer over the Internet. It encrypts all traffic, and provides a high level of protection against hacker attacks. Main features of Secure Shell include secure remote logins, terminal emulation, fully integrated secure file transfers, secure tunneling of X11 traffic, and secure access to e-mail over the Internet." For a free Win32 client, consider PenguiNet or PuTTY. And for the Mac, consider NiftyTelnet.
SSL Secure Server Access
A secure server allows users to collect data such as credit card information in a secure environment. Our secure server is run by Apache-SSL. Information submitted via a secure form is sent to the server in an encrypted mode.
Secure Server Order Forms
Normally, any text sent from your browser to the Web server is sent as plain text. This means that a hacker could potentially intercept the information. By using the secure server, you encrypt the information before it is sent. It would be practically impossible for anyone to decrypt it without knowing the key.
An imagemap is a graphical set of linksdifferent parts of an image will link the visitor to other pages on your Web site.
Server-Side Includes (SSI)
SSI, or Server-Side Includes, allows the server to parse special page commands.

On the pages where the footer is to appear, you add a "simple include" to read that file and place it at the bottom of the desired pages.

We have implemented server-side Spam filters for our clients using the Plusmail web control system. The anti-spam filters use several spamming blacklists for spam detection. We have chosen the organizations below as they have the most reliable and current lists available.

Spam Assassin is a mail filter that identifies spam and junk mail using text analysis. Using its rule base, it uses a wide range of heuristic tests on mail headers and body text to identify spam or unsolicited commercial email. On the 'Plusmail' accounts, you can configure its settings via the "Options" page of your web-based email: http://YourDomainName.com/webmail On the Ensim accounts, login to your "user" web control panel (http://Your DomainName.com/user), and select "Spam Filtering." Squirrel Mail (Webmail for Nuts)
To activate SquirrelMail on your 'Plusmail' account, you need to first activate PHP. Do this via your web control panel (http://YourDomainName.com/cgi-bin/plusmail), under the "Free Scripts" category. Once PHP is activated (about 15 minutes), then you will be able to access the SquirrelMail login page. (On the Ensim accounts, SquirrelMail is activated by default.)
To access SquirrelMail on your account, go to http://YourDomainName.com/webmail/Subhosting / Subhost Domains / Domain Redirection
You can have multiple domain names pointing to different subdirectories of your main domain.
For example, suppose "www.client1.com" is the name of the domain you would like to subhost. Within your main account, you create a subdirectory for "client1," naming the directory anything you choose. For purposes of example, suppose the name of this directory is "services." Therefore, whenever someone types "www.client1.com" in their web browser, they will be taken to "www.client1.com/services/".
Here's a real-life example: we subhost the domain iShopWare.com in the subdirectory named "iShop" on the PeoplesWare.com domain. When a visitor goes to the URL http://iShopWare.com, they are delivered to http://iShopWare.com/iShop/ and in the process they never see the PeoplesWare.com domain name in the URL.
Note: In order to do this type of subhosting, we must first park the domain to be subhosted onto your main account domain, and then you use the Web Control Panel to specify the subdirectory to which the domain should be redirected to. You need to pay the one-time set-up fee for parking a domain first, before it can be subhosted. There are no additional monthly fees.
With a maillist, you can offer your clients a monthly newsletter, sales updates, or just a friendly hello. Your clients can easily subscribe to your list via e-mail. The PlusMail System is capable of multiple lists, so you can organize the information your customers may be looking for. There is a limit of 1,000 subscribers per list, and you can e-mail a message up to 75k.
Tcl (Tool Command Language) is two things: a scripting language and an interpreter for the language which is designed to be easy to embed into other applications. As a language, it is much like UNIX shell languages. There is very little syntax, and it is easy to learn. It is used to glue together building blocks built in system programming languages like C, C++, and Java. These building blocks appear as commands, or verbs, in the script language. Refer to our Tips & Tutorials section for more information.
Telnet NOTE: This is replaced by Secure Shell Access for all accounts.
Telnet is a very powerful tool for logging directly into a server to perform advanced (and some basic) features like compiling a program, archiving files, etc. Most likely, if you don't know what Telnet is, you don't need it. Most Telnet features (like CHMOD, which is used to change file permissions) can be done through FTP.
