For example, if you have two different email accounts, firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com, you could forward firstname.lastname@example.org to email@example.com for faster retrieval. Note that the forwarded mail will still be delivered to the original address.

FrontPage Extensions allow you to publish your site directly from the FrontPage application. This means that you will not have to upload files through FTP or another method.
Warning: Installing or uninstalling FrontPage extensions will result in the loss of all ".htaccess" files. Any changes you have made to your ".htaccess" files will be lost. Any directories you have protected with WebProtect will become unprotected until you re-protect them.
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. Like the name implies, its main purpose is
to make transferring files from one computer to another as fast and easy as possible. In order to use FTP you will need a third party program.
FTP Session Control
You can use this function to see who is currently logged into your site through FTP. You can also terminate any FTP connections to your site that you feel should not be open. This can be very useful in preventing users from accessing your files without your permission.
Hotlink protection prevents other websites from directly linking to specific files on your website. Sites will still be able to link to any file type that you don't specify (i.e., HTML files), but protects against links that steal your bandwidth. An example of hotlinking would be using an img tag to display an image from
your site somewhere else on the Web.

Mailing lists can simplify sending messages to a large group of people. You can add a group of email addresses to a mailing list to avoid typing those addresses each time you send a message. This can be very useful when sending newsletters or other updates to large groups of people.
MIME types tell browsers how to handle specific extensions. For example, the text/html MIME type equates to .htm, .html, and .shtml extensions on most servers, and this tells your browser to interpret all files with those extensions as HTML files. You can alter or add new MIME types specifically for your site (note that you can not alter the system defined MIME type values). MIME types are often used to handle new technologies as they appear. When WAP technology first appeared no one had these extensions set up on their server. With MIME types, however, you could have set it up yourself and begun serving WAP pages immediately.
MySQL Database Wizard
MySQL Databases allow you to store lots of information in an easy to access manner. Currently we are running version 5.1.63-cll The databases themselves are not easily read by humans. MySQL databases are required by many web applications including some bulletin boards, content management systems, and others. To use a database, you'll need to create it. Only MySQL Users (different than mail or other users) that have privileges to access a database can read from or write to that database. Detailed information can be obtained at www.mysql.net.
Network Tools allow a user to find out information about any domain, or to trace the route from the server your site is on to the computer you are accessing cPanel from. Finding out information about a domain can be useful in making sure your DNS is set up properly as you will find out information about your IP address as well as your DNS.
Parked Domains (Domain pointers) allow you to "point" or "park" additional domain names to your existing hosting account. For example a user could use either aeroad.net or aeroad.com to access your website.

DNS is the component of the Internet which converts human-readable domain names (e.g. aeroad.com) into computer-readable IP addresses (e.g. 22.214.171.124). It does this according to DNS zone files that reside on your server which tie domain names to IP addresses. This feature allows you to create and edit A and CNAME records.

SSH allows secure file transfer and remote logins over the internet. Your connection via SSH is encrypted allowing the secure connection. You can manage your SSH keys to allow automation when logging in via SSH. Using public key authentication is an alternative to password authentication. Since the private key must be held to authenticate, it is virtually impossible to brute force. You can Import existing keys, generate new keys, as well as manage/delete keys.

1GB of bandwidth provides
approximately 77,500 "hits" of traffic. This is more than
enough for the average site.
