Q. I need a custom tag installed into the Coldfusion Administrator? Will you install it for me? If so, is there a charge?
We will look at the tag and see if it is something we can install on our servers without causing a security risk. If we can install it, there might be a charge depending on the complexity of the installation. Usually we will not charge extra for installation of a CF custom tag.

Q. What is a Subdomain?
A subdomain is similar to a sub-directory on your domain, except when you create a subdomain called "resellers" for example, you can then use an address such as: http://forum.megalinx.com/ where the subdomain is in front of the domain name in the address. The URL http://forum.megalinx.com/ would load the same page but without a subdomain, only the latter would work.
Q. What is an Add-On Domain?
An Add-On domain will allow you to host an additional domain name under the same web hosting account. It is accomplished by pointing the nameservers of the new domain name to the server and simply adding the Add-On domain in your Control Panel. You will then have a folder on your main domain that will contain all of the files and folders for the Add-On domain. We have recenlty added Add-On domain capability to most of our web hosting plans. For example, our Virtual Professional 200mb account is like having 2 web hosting accounts because it comes with (1) Add-On domain.
Q. What is a Parked Domain?
A parked domain is a domain name pointed to one of our web servers and each one you setup in your Control Panel, will point to your homepage of your primary web hosting account. Parked domains have no other fuctionality.
Q. What is bandwidth?
Bandwidth is amount of data transferred to and from a webhosting account. The most common examples of data transfer are:
- Files and images being requested by your visitor's web browsers.
- Files transferred to and from your domain using an FTP program.
- Email messages received and sent from your domain.
Bandwidth is renewed monthly and monitored every 24 hours. Our hosting accounts provide a very generous amount of bandwidth for your domains... more than most web hosts provide for the same size accounts!
