User Hosting Control Panel Feature List


At no level of our hosting solution are any users denied the privilege of outstanding control, functions and features.

Below are some more of the functions and features that customers have available within their hosting account.

Manage Email Accounts
Admin, resellers and customers can add, update and remove email accounts (POP3 accounts). The number of email accounts available for a domain is set at the package level. This means if a customer's package has more than one domain the number of email accounts are distributed among all the domains.

Manage Email Forwarding
Admin, resellers and customers can add, update and remove email forwarders. Like email accounts, email forwarders can be controlled from admins, resellers or customers.

Manage MRAs
MRAs (Multi-Recipient email Addresses) allow a customer to setup an address that will forward to one or more email addresses. An administrator and reseller can restrict the maximum number of recipents to ensure this feature is less likely to be used as a mail list. This feature is dependant on the email server software installed.

Manage FTP Accounts
Admin, resellers and customers can add, update and remove FTP accounts. FTP accounts can be set to have specific read and write permissions. This means a read-only or write-only FTP account can be created at any time.

Manage ODBC DSNs
Admin, resellers and customers can add, update and remove ODBC DSNs for MS Access, MS Excel, MySQL (where appropriate) and MS SQL (where appropriate). Because all database management is controlled by Helm, adding ODBC DSNs is very much straightforward. In many cases adding a new DSN is as simple as typing the name of the DSN and selecting the database from a list available to the customer.

Manage Sub-Domains
Sub-domains allow users to use full host names to access subfolders within their accounts, such as This is a great alternative when the customer doesn't need email etc for the sub-domain, but just needs it for a few webpages or files.

Manage Domain Aliases
Domain aliases will allow a customer to have additional domains that map their website and email for another domain. This is also a great way of arranging a way for a customer to test out a set up before a domain is pointing to the servers.

Manage Shared SSL
You can set up shared SSL accounts for the customers domains. This will allow your customers to provide their own scripts and ensure that they are communicated with securely, such as credit card payment forms, or downloading confidential information.

File Manager
Helm provides a file manager that allows a customer to access all of his disk space. This even includes a WYSIWYG editor at no extra cost.

Database Manager
This feature provides a quick overview of the databases that are installed for a domain. This feature is planned to be extended in the future to encompass full database management online.

DNS Zone Manager
Admin, resellers and customers can add, update and remove zone records. Helm allows customers to specify personal MX and Host (A) records for their domains.

Manage MIME Types
Admin, resellers and customers can add, update and remove MIME types. This allows a customer to add additional services such as WAP should this not be provided by default.
