Web Hosting

Service package available on a monthly basis:
Website Hosting (Apache with PHP)
Domain Name Serving
Email accounts (with remote log-in access) "Web-Mail"
FTP site

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:username@yourdomain.com)

5. Cabida.com uses both Microsoft Windows Server and Linux server systems.

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)

General: The Internet is a voluntary association of users interested in and willing to exchange information and data with other Internet users. At present there is no oversight group providing governance over the principles, policies or procedures for use of the Internet or the information and data accessed via the Internet. In order to facilitate their contractual relationship the Customer and the Vendor wish to define a working protocol of principles and policies and establish operating guidelines and acceptable standards of use of the Internet. To this end the parties agree as follows:

Principles Governing Acceptable use of the Internet by the Customer Responsibility and Respect - The Internet is a network intended for use by mature, adult users. The Customer recognizes this principle and undertakes at all times to act with respect, courtesy and responsibility, giving due regard to the interests and rights of other Internet users. This general guideline carries with it the following specific responsibilities:

a) Knowledge of the Internet - The Customer agrees to obtain a basic knowledge of the Internet and it’s operating principles and procedures.

b) Improper Uses - The Customer will avoid violation of certain generally accepted guidelines on Internet usage such as restrictions on mass mailings and mass advertisements, pirating or copying of software, mail bombing or other methods of attempting to deny service or access to other users, and attempts to violate security.

c) Unsolicited Commercial Email - The Vendor strictly prohibits Unsolicited Commercial Email, also known as "spam". This includes using our network to distribute unsolicited bulk email or using any outside network to send bulk email advertising your site on the Vendor servers or offering bulk email software or bulk email services to any other persons or any other activity promoting, aiding or otherwise enabling the transmission of bulk email. The Vendor reserves the right to immediately terminate any customer account associated with unsolicited email and no refund will be issued for any unused service fees. The Vendor reserves the right to determine if any particular activity is in violation of this policy.

d) Compliance with Laws - The Customer will ensure that their use of the Internet complies with all applicable federal, state and local law and regulation, including but not limited to those principles of law which protect against compromise of copyrights, trade secrets, proprietary information and other intellectual property rights, libel or defamation of character, invasion of privacy, tortuous interference, and export of technical or military data to prohibited countries.

The Vendor does NOT retain or maintain a record of passwords, once the password has been distributed to the Customer!

g) Discretion and Judgement - The Customer is expected to use discretion in the treatment and handling of Internet information and data and to take particular care to insure that adult information is not transmitted to juvenile users of the Internet.

h) Pornography - Due to legal and social issues, we will not accept any customers who publish, store or otherwise process pornographic material. If an existing customer violates this principle, the Vendor reserves the right to immediately terminate the Customer's account and no refund will be issued for any unused service fees. Material deemed to be pornographic is the sole discretion of the Vendor, with due regard to the laws of Houston, Texas, U.S..

i) Excessive Service Usage - Customers are restricted from using excessive amounts of CPU processing, network bandwidth or other resources provided by the Vendor. Judgements of excessive usage are determined solely by the Vendor and will be considered in comparison to other the Vendor customers using similar services andy paying the Vendor similar rates. the Vendor will contact customers with resource intensive requirements and attempt to accommodate such needs. In the case that an agreement cannot be made to the satisfaction of both the Vendor and the customer, and that the customer continues to use excessive resources, the Vendor reserves the right to immediately terminate any customer account associated with excessive resource usage.

j) Notice of Termination - The Vendor has the right to suspend or terminate any service without prior notice or warning. If the terms and conditions or the general usage policies are violated in any way we reserve the right to immediately terminate the service without prior warning or notice. No refunds are issued for terminated services.
