1 If you want to use CGI in your FrontPage site, mail firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to have cgi enabled on your FrontPage site. When Front Page extensions are added you will have to use Front Page to update your site, as FTP will no longer work on the account, all the web-bots will work but if you also want to use CGI we will have to set up a special directory on your web space
2 FrontPage is not enabled as standard, but can be added to your account if requested by emailing email@example.com.
- This service is only available within the UK. We will shortly be launching a service for international users.
- To keep your account active you must dial in to our service on a regular basis - at least once a month.
NOTE: I have heard good things about this service. Recommended
Although TeleFragged mainly hosts Quake and Quake2 sites, we will also gladly host other gaming sites. However, be sure to check out the TeleNation beforehand, because your site may fit in better on a different domain. The Server - TeleFragged is located on a Unix machine.
Hosting eligibility is on a per-applicant basis, we simply can not approve all persons who apply for hosting. We do not host clans, no exceptions
- -Mail - Your site can have multiple e-mail addresses on our server, so you can use firstname.lastname@example.org. We can setup full e-mail accounts or it can forward to your current address. Mailing lists also aren't a problem.
- The Server - TeleFragged is located on a Linux machine and through the Linux machine we offer FrontPage Extensions to allow easier updates if you so desire it. We also offer Perl, PHP, MySQL database support, and we support SSI. We have also recently added NT hosting, this allows us to support ASP and MS SQL, our primary OS is still Linux.
- Unlimited Webspace/FTP Space - You have pretty much as much space as you'll ever need. Also TeleFragged's FTP server is mirrored so there are always numerous places for people to download your files from.
- Our Network - Bandwidth is never an issue with TeleFragged, we have a shadowed DS3 (uber speedy) connection to UUNet. All of our servers are connected to the net via a CISCO 7206 router for the highest level of reliability and speed.
