Data transfer (bandwidth)

This data can be composed of web pages, images, movies, sound files, programs, compressed files, or anything else on your site that can be viewed or downloaded by visitors. All this requested data added together equals your total data transfer.

Infinities Web Hosting plans provide you with a generous amount of data transfer per month - so you won't have to worry if your site becomes a popular one!

Disk space
Your web site consists of text, graphics, sound, or video files that occupy disk space on a server. If you already have this data on your computer, check the combined size of those files to help you select a hosting package with enough disk space. You can always buy additional disk space or switch plans as your site grows. This is enough storage for thousands of web pages, graphics, office documents, high-resolution digital photos, and multi-media files. Offered in all packages.

Domain name
A domain name is also called a web address. Like a memorable street address, it can help people find you online. You can register your own name, your company's name, key words to describe your business, or even a short phrase - whatever will make your web address easy to remember for your friends or customers. Once your domain is registered, you can build a public web site at your own web address (e.g., www.my-domain.com) and create a personalized email address (e.g., me@my-domain.com). Offered in all packages.

Error pages
You can create personalized error pages to end visitor confusion and direct people to new pages. A "404 not found" page is displayed when a visitor tries to view a page that doesn't exist or has been moved.

A "401 authorization required" page is only displayed if you have set up a password-protected area for your site and a visitor enters the wrong login information. A custom error message can help visitors enter the correct login information. Offered in all packages.
