Mailman also integrates most things people want to do with mailing lists, including archiving, mail-to-news gateways, integrated bounce handling, spam prevention, email-based admin commands, direct SMTP delivery (with fast bulk mailing), support for virtual domains, and more.

    Where can I get more information on Mailman?

    For more information on Mailman visit http://www.gnu.org/software/mailman/mailman.html.

    Do you have Majordomo?

    No, instead we use Mailman which works very similar to Majordomo and comes with many extra features.

    Can I install my own mailing list software?

    Yes, you can write your own or use already available scripts, see http://www.hotscripts.com for a complete list of mailing list scripts available for use.

    Can I send spam or unsolicited e-mail?

    No, absolutely not, sending of spam or unsolicited mass e-mailing will result in immediate suspension and more than likely the termination of your account. This includes mailing lists which falsely advertise themselves as opt-in lists. Be warned!

    Are there any restrictions on the number of subscribers on a mailing list?

    We allow a maximum of 21,000 messages (total) per month.

    Which version of Perl is available?

    All of our servers have Perl 5.8 installed.

    What is path of Perl?

    The path for Perl on all servers is: /usr/local/bin/perl

    Can you install the following .... perl modules?

    Installation of additional Perl modules is available on request, usually we can accomodate these requests, and there is no extra charge.

    There are several scripts which can be installed on your website automatically via softaculous. You can also download and install thousands of additional Perl and PHP scripts from http://www.hotscripts.com.

    Do you have ImageMagick installed?

    Yes, we have the ImageMagick module installed.

    Can I transfer my domain to IWHost?

    If you are transferring a domain to IWHost then you need to update the nameserver records on the domain to the nameservers mentioned in your activation email. Nameservers are required to point your domain to the correct location, failure to update the nameserver records will result in your domain pointing elsewhere. To update your nameserver records contact your domain registrar or the company responsible for purchasing your domain. To check if the nameservers records on your domain have been successfully changed please use http://www.checkdomain.com or http://www.namecrave.com

    What nameservers should I use?

    Nameservers/DNS are always mentioned in our account activation email, You should refer that.

    Where can I register a domain?

    In association with nameCrave, we provide domain registration services from RM50 / USD$12 per year. If you wish you can use another domain registration service and just update the nameservers associated with the domain to our servers.

    Can you register and setup my domain for me?

    Yes, if you would like us to take the hassle of registering your domain we charge RM50 / USD$12 per year for .com, .net or .org domains and RM60 / USD$15 per year per year for .info and .biz. This is inclusive of all registrar costs and involves no configuration on your part. We recommend this option for novices. All domain registrations are subject to availability. This option is available when you begin the order process at nameCrave.

    Do you support International domain names?

    Yes we fully support international domain names, however it is your responsibility to register them or if transferring to modify the nameservers to the one mentioned in our account activation email. Refer to your domain registrar for further instructions.

    What are parked domains?

    They point to the root directory of an existing web site you have with us. They allow you to point additional domain names to your already existing domain. For example domain.com, domain.net and domain.org. can all point to the same place, preventing others from capitalizing on your unique domain name. They DO NOT point to sub-directories of existing accounts. We also do not allow any software or technique that is designed to bypass this policy. Using an index.cgi to read the request headers and redirect to a subdirectory or having an outside host point a domain name to a subdirectory is likewise, prohibited.

    Do I have to register parked domains as well?

    Just adding a parked domain via cPanel is not enough, you need to ensure the domain is registered and points to the nameservers. Use same nameserver/dns that you have used for your main account/domain..

    How many domains can I park on my account?

    Please refer to our hosting page matrix for current quotas.

    Can I use .htaccess redirecting or a redirector script to enable parked domains to run as separate websites?

    This is not recommended, However you may use it at your own risk as we will not provide any technical support for this.

    What nameservers do I use?

    Nameservers/DNS are always mentioned in our account activation email, You should refer that.

    How do I add a parked domain to my account?

    Log into your control panel and select 'Park Domains' and then enter the domain name (without the www.) and then click Add. Our servers will now be ready to accept the domain name, you just need to register the domain name and/or change the nameservers to our servers.

    Do parked domains have e-mail capabilities?

    By default all mail sent to parked-domain.com is routed to your main e-mail account on your primarydomain.com. However from within your control panel you can modify this by changing the 'default address', you can also add POP accounts and forwarders based on your parked domain.

    Can I park international domains on my account?

    Yes, you can park any valid domain name on your account.

    I parked a domain on my account yesterday and successfully changed the nameservers, yet it still isnt showing up in my web browser?

    Once the nameservers have been successfully changed it could take up to 72hrs for the domain changes to successfully propagate and the domain to resolve to your webspace at IWHost. Please be patient. There is nothing we can do to speed up the process

    What are add-on domains?

    Add-on domains point to the sub-directories of an existing web site you have with us. They allow you to run multiple domains with different content under one account.
    http://www.firstdomain.com (/home/myaccount/www/)
    http://www.addondomain1.com (/home/myaccount/www/addon1/)
    http://www.addondomain2.com (home/myaccount/www/addon2/)

    Do I have to register add-on domains as well?

    Just adding an add-on domain via cPanel is not enough, you need to ensure the domain is registered and points to the nameservers. Use same nameserver/dns that you have used for your main account/domain..

    How many add-on domains can I have on my account?

    Please refer to our hosting page matrix for current quotas.

    What nameservers do I use?

    Nameservers/DNS are always mentioned in our account activation email, You should refer that.

    Log into your control panel and select 'Addon Domains'.
    (1) Enter the add-on domain name in the 'New Addon Domain' box. (do not include the www. prefix)
    (2) Choose a directory name, this will also be used as the username for FTP access create for the account.
    (3) Choose a password, this will be used to protect FTP access to the account.

    Do add-on domains have e-mail capabilities?

    By default all mail sent to addon-domain.com is routed to your main e-mail account on your primarydomain.com. However from within your control panel you can modify this by changing the 'default address', you can also add POP accounts and forwarders based on your add-on domain.

    Can I add-on international domains to my account?

    Yes, we support any valid international domain name.

    I create an add-on domain on my account yesterday and successfully changed the nameservers, yet it still isnt showing up in my web browser? Once the nameservers have been successfully changed it could take up to 72hrs for the domain changes to successfully propagate and the domain to resolve to your webspace at IWHost. Please be patient. There is nothing we can do to speed up the process.

    How do I access add-on domains?

    Add-on domains can be accessed via three ways:
    (1) http://www..com
    (2) http://www..com/
    (3) http://..com
    - add-on domain name you created.
    - refers to the directory/username you created for the add-on domain. - refers to your main domain name on which you setup the add-on domain.
    Option 1 may not be accessible until the domain name has been successfully transferred and the nameserver changes propagated across the Internet, this could take up to 72hrs.

    How do I FTP files to an add-on domain?

    There are two ways you can use FTP to upload your files to the add-on domain: 1) FTP to your primary account and then navigate to the public_html directory and then to the directory/username you created for the add-on domain. Upload your files. 2) FTP to your primary domain with the user: username@primarydomain.com where username is username/directory for the add-on domain and then the password is the password you created for the add-on domain. This FTP account permits access to the add-on domain directory only.

    Do the add-on domains come with their own cPanel logon?

    No, only one cPanel logon per account is created.

    Can I resell my add-on domains?

    No, this is strictly not allowed. To resell accounts please review our reseller hosting options.

    Where must .cgi files be placed?

    CGI files can be created in any directory. The cgi-bin folder is just like any other folder and is only created by default because of tradition.

    How do I upload cgi files?

    Upload CGI files via FTP. However ensure the transfer mode is ASCII to avoid problems.

    What do I have to chmod CGI files to?

    Since CGI runs under your username, CGI files must be chmod to 700.

    My script returns internal server error?

    This usually occurs when permissions are loosely set. Try giving 755 and/or 777 permission to your scripts.
