Internet services provided


HamQSO.net is offering the following services to licensed hamradio operators that wish to have content served to the general public.

Your own FTP directory

HamQSO.net offers users a specific directory on its servers that only the registered user has access to. You can put any information in these directories whether it is personal or public (you can secure certain directories discussed further down.)

PHP support

PHP, which stands for "PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor" is a widely-used Open Source general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for Web development and can be embedded into HTML. Its syntax draws upon C, Java, and Perl, and is easy to learn. The main goal of the language is to allow web developers to write dynamically generated webpages quickly, but you can do much more with PHP. To use PHP all a user has to do is create a page that has a .php extension and have proper code in that page. More information can found at http://www.php.net.

SSI (Server Side Includes)

SSI (Server Side Includes) are directives that are placed in HTML pages, and evaluated on the server while the pages are being served. They let you add dynamically generated content to an existing HTML page, without having to serve the entire page via a CGI program, or other dynamic technology. The decision of when to use SSI, and when to have your page entirely generated by some program, is usually a matter of how much of the page is static, and how much needs to be recalculated every time the page is served. SSI is a great way to add small pieces of information, such as the current time. But if a majority of your page is being generated at the time that it is served, you need to look for some other solution.

E-Mail Hosting

HamQSO.net offers email accounts that will receive any email destined for your domain and store it until your pick it up. The number of email boxes is unlimited

Secure directories

Users are free to create secure directories within their home folder. This is done by creating two simple files called .htaccess and .htpasswd. The webserver software reads these files for information about user access the directories they are in. To find out more about securing your directories see the HowTo's page.

Fully qualified domain hosting

HamQSO.net provides full functionality like MySql databases, cgi-bin, web stats, email boxes instead of forwarding, your own domain name. We never put any pop up messages or advertisements on your page. All you have to do is register your own domain name with a name registrar like www.directnic.com or www.godaddy.com. HamQSO.net is not responsible for registration payment or renewal of domain names. HamQSO.net will only host domain names that reflect a registered ham station callsign (club or individual.) if you are a ham and have a commercial site we will host your site for $12.00 USD per Month.
