Domain Hosting and Data Transfer
Service package available on a monthly basis:
Website Hosting (Apache with PHP)
Domain Name Serving
Email accounts (with
remote log-in access) "Web-Mail"
The basic web hosting services listed above are available for
$20.00 U.S. per month, per domain, plus applicable taxes. Service
upgrades are available, including additional email accounts, site &
page design, audio-visual streaming, etc.
System & Setup Information: (new users please read this!)
1. For remote email access: The Cabida Web-Mail system (not Outlook
on your computer, but a webpage based reader) operates over Port 82.
If an internet provider is blocking that port, you must use another
method to remotely access email, such as mail2web.com .
2. If we host your website, for your domain registrar: Our DNS (Domain Name Server) names are
www.cabida.com and ns2.cabida.com.
3a. For your local mail reader (Outlook): Our mailservers (SMTP &
POP) are BOTH mail.cabida.com.
3b. We require Outgoing authentication. (this eliminates SPAMMERS using our system)
- In Outlook (Express), go to Tools - Accounts, select the account you want to use with our server, click Change/Properties/More Settings, go to Server tab, click the My Outgoing Server Requires Authentication checkbox, then check Use Same Settings as My Incoming Mail Server. Do not check Log on Using (Secure Password Authentication) box.
- In Netscape, go to Preferences, select Mail Servers, and in Outgoing Mail Server User Name box type the username. Netscape will prompt you for password when you try to send mail (it will happen only once, later it will remember the password).
- IF YOU CANNOT SEND OUT, some providers BLOCK port 25, the default Outgoing port. In Tools Advanced Settings change your SMTP to 587. If this does not work, you will need to call your provider for more information. To test the Cabida System, try the Webmail - if it works, your problem is with your provider.
4. Your email address is your email username PLUS your domain. (ex:email@example.com)
5. Cabida.com uses both Microsoft Windows Server and Linux server
6. We use aggressive DNSBL (Black List) filters to combat spam. If
you are missing emails, contact us (or even better, contact the
sender - they have the problem!).
7. We use several IP address lock-outs to prevent spoofing and spam.
If you cannot log on to your services anymore, contact us with your
IP address (found on our Tools page).
Pay for Hosting with
Paypal or by credit card (a service charge is added, plus
state tax, per month of service = $22.60)
