Finally we have decided to signup. After a month plus heard about them and run few research on them, we are convinced this is a good host. Hopefully we will getting to the right hosting now. We signup with them and the signup process is simple and easy. At their official homepage, find the sign up button. Select the plan of choice and we would suggest 12 or 24 months for best value. Choose a new domain for free. Click the confirmation link and fill in account information and billing information. Complete the order page and its done. Once we have completed the signup process and having the new account, we start migrating this Pow web review website over and start to host this website here. The website migration process is simple and we choose to do it our own. User that require assistant can get help from support team on this.

Technical support and customer service quality are excellent and always available when we need their help. From my experience, I have learned the true fact about them. Truth is that they are fully US-based and we love to talk with people that understand our website problem and able to solve the issue by themselves. They are well trained and know how to fix web server problems. Customer support are helpful and available whenever we need technical help. Many years of experience and we never felt disappointed at all.

Powweb FTP server connection is working greats. If you are beginner and going to publish custom built website, this is how to manually FTP upload Web files to server. What need to be done is moving a copy of those files to server. The only choice is to use FTP upload the file transfer protocol to move the files from local computer to the server side. There is no other way. Usually we will use FileZilla FTP client to do the uploading work. This FTP does support multi-threading and uses a few threads processing.

It support Microsoft FrontPage 2003 extensions and this feature are available in control panel. All applications created with FrontPage extensions will work, create and edit website from PC then publish it directly to website. Use the web page editor conveniently and saves time to produce better looking websites. To install this, log in to OPS control panel and select the Install tab and enter a password in the text box and click next button. Since the FrontPage extensions are not compatible with some web tool features, do not enable this server extensions if you are building site using SiteDelux web editor.

Powweb webmail clients program are the best. Their shared web hosting plan allows multiple emails account to be hosted and each account is accessible via online webmail. Once a new email account is added, we can connect it through Outlook Express or any other client software of choice and send receive message through here. When asked for our opinion on their email service quality, we have no problem with it so far and we are able to perform daily task with their email service.

From the Powweb control panel, we see there are providing three types of webmail clients program namely Atmail, Squirrelmail and Horder. The latest Open-Xchange webmail client is provided for free as well. We can use these webmail program for checking new messages and composing outgoing messages. Everything is done online and it works great.

How to create a new Powweb email account? Their web hosting plan allows unlimited email accounts and we can do this from their control panel. From here choose to go to Mail Central, and from here we can create new email account. Choose a new standard email type and create a new for the new mailbox. Choose the domain name require and set a new password for this mailbox. All these are the only required thing and next we can complete the new mailbox. What we can do next is link this from our email client software and allow us to create email, send it and receive email in future. From our review and testing, this new mailbox is working great and there is no difficulties during mailbox creation or when send receive the email message.

Email sending limit is 200 per hour. Web hosting company apply limitation on their email services in order to stop spamming activity and prevent server overload. Their email limits is set to 4800 per day or 200 per hour. This limit is quit good and better compare to most budget hosting providers. To work around this and use it for sending out maximum message per day, setup the email sending script to get 200 addresses from MySQL database. And add this script to run by CRON Job from control panel and set it to every hour performs once. This will fully optimized the given resources. This is a small temporary solution and will not work for high demand email marketing service that hope to send thousand of emails per hour. For that specific requirement, there is a need for VPS or dedicated hosting that offers much higher email sending capability.

Email spam protection and feature are provided too. Inside this control panel, we found a Spam management setting and we can choose to apply protection to all email accounts available. This is a global setting and once activated, all domain associated with our account will be using the same spam filtering setting. We can choose either to delete the spam message, store it separate directory for 7 days or just receive the message with subject line prefix only. There is additional grey-list and white-list feature to add sender into contact.

Here is email catch-all feature available. In additional, the email catchall feature is also supported by their load-balanced hosting plan too. If you are doing business and worry people sending message to wrong address or simply the address is no longer valid due to employee leaving the company etc, this email catch-all feature is the tool to use. Setting the bounce email address and direct all invalid address to here. If you don’t want those email to be bounced to a default address, alternatively you can choose to trash or delete those invalid emails.
