Arvixe ASP .NET Web Hosting Service
ASP .NET is a web scripting language and application framework that has been around for several years, and offers numerous advantages, such as cross platform compatibility and quick application development. With ASP .NET technology, developers can create very powerful database driven applications.
Arvixe's ASP .NET Hosting Features
e of the most popular Windows control panels, DotNetPanel includes Backup/Restore, Built-in Applications Installer, Support for Windows 2008, and IIS 7.
This feature allows developers to direct more than one domain to their website without having to copy their website more than twice. Developers are also able to set up email accounts for their domain aliases.
With subdomains, developers can provide easy access to their websites' different segments. For instance, if a developer wants easy access to the billing segment of their website, they will have a separate domain address for that section.
Using the FTP protocol, customers can easily update their websites. FTP accounts can also easily be created, which allows access to only certain segments of a website. This means that clients and staff will only be permitted to see certain segments of a website.
All of Arvixe's web hosting plans allow developers to use Microsoft Frontpage to build and publish their website within a matter of minutes.
All of Arvixe's web hosting plans are Dreamweaver compatible, meaning customers can use Adobe/Macromedia Dreamweaver to build and publish their websites.
Adobe GoLive Compatible
All of Arvixe's web hosting plans are Adobe GoLive compatible, which means that customers can use Adobe GoLive to build and publish their websites.
File MIME Types
With file MIME types, customers can specify with file extensions are used for which purposes, allowing for greater security.
Custom Error Pages
Custom error pages present website visitors with a custom message when they try to access website sections that are unavailable.
This tool allows customers to easily add, edit, remove and move files directly using the control panel.
Daily R1 Soft Backups
Arvixe automatically performs daily backups of web content for both Personal Class and Reseller Class Plans.

Mail Boxes (POP3 & IMAP)
Through Arvixe's control panel, email accounts can be set up easily. Customers have the option of accessing their accounts via three different webmail applications or through popular email clients, such as Microsoft Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird using either POP3 or IMAP4 protocols.
Secure IMAP and POP3
All email accounts can be securely accessed through secure ports for both IMAP4 and POP3 protocols.
Autoresponders enables the server to send back an email to the sender automatically whenever an email is sent, allowing notification to the sender of special circumstances.
With this feature, customers can have their emails forwarded to another email address. Multiple email accounts may also be forwarded to a single address, and they may also be forwarded to an email account outside of Arvixe's network.
This feature allows customers to assign a specific email address alias to a group of email addresses, which means that when mail is delivered to the email alias, the entire group receives it.
Email lists operate similarly to email groups, however individual members of the lists may be granted permission to send emails back to the list and initiate discussions among list members.
AfterLogic Webmail offers a clean and intuitive webmail interface. Key features include email address auto-complete, drag-n-drop, and message preview pane.
DomainKeys and SPF
SPF, or Sender Policy Framework, is a feature that prevents sender address forgery, whereas DomainKeys is a feature that is designed to verify an e-mail sender's DNS domain and the message integrity. With both features, spammers cannot use a customer's email address as the sender of their spam.
Spamhaus & SpamCop Checks
This feature tracks the internet's spam gangs, spam services, and spammers, providing consistent realtime anti-spam protection for internet networks. Spamhaus also works with law enforcement to help identify and pursue spammers on a global scale by determining the origin of unwanted email and reporting it to relevant internet service providers.
Catch-all Email Addresses
This service provides an easy method for receiving emails addressed to any other address on the same domain.
Ports 26 and 587 Outgoing
Many internet service providers block port 25, which is the original port to send mail, because of the large number of spammers. By blocking port 25, customers would be unable to use web hosting companies to send email. However, Arvixe provides SMTP service on ports 26 and 587, thereby bypassing the need to use port 25, allowing customers to send mail.

Server Side Includes (SSI) is used almost exclusively for the web, and is a simple server-side scripting language. SSIs can be used to place the contents of one file into another one when the latter file is served by a web server. Arvixe's servers use SSI to parse files with the extension .shtml, and clients can modify this behavior in the MIME File Types section of the control panel.
