Anonymous FTP
Enabling anonymous FTP allows visitors to access your Web site to upload and/or download files without a unique ID and password. Even though anonymous ftp is excellent for downloading files, uploading can get risky. So you might want to consider purchasing a custom CGI script for letting authorised users upload files to your site.
Included with all Plans
CGI script support
All customers have access to a personal cgi-local directory in which you can place your own custom CGI scripts. CGI scripts are often used to accomplish tasks which are not supported by basic HTML, such as a "hit" counter or guest book. This directory can be used to set up scripts that you write or find elsewhere on the Web. We also offer several pre-written scripts, available free for your use. These include a hit counter, guest book, mail form, discussion forum, and more!
Included with all Plans
Domain Alias
Apart from your chosen domain name (e.g. yourdomain.com), you may wish to have other domains (e.g. xyz.com) also point to your same web site. You may register as many domain names as you want and have them all bring visitors to the same web site as yourdomain.com
Available for all plans

All users have access to a Web-based Control Panel which allows you to set mail forwarding options, view your logs, set permissions, and even upload/download files to and from your site.

Data Transfer
In general, any outward-bound traffic from a Web site, with the exception of e-mail, is considered data transfer. For example, each time a Web page, image, midi file, quicktime video, etc. is loaded, data transfer is generated. Each of our plans includes a generous amount of free data transfer which should be more than enough for most sites. In fact, 98% to 99% of our customers operate within their free data transfer allowance. Additional data transfer beyond the threshold will incur a small charge.
Included with all plans
Disk Storage Space
Disk storage space refers to the amount of server disk storage specifically allocated to your account. This space is used to store your html files, graphics, audio clips, POP mail messages, pdfs, and other files that make up your Web site. Each of our plans includes a specified allotment of disk storage space, but additional space can be purchased for any account in 5 MB blocks, at a cost of $1/MB per month.

MJourney offers virtual domain Web hosting accounts which means you can have your own Web address or "domain name" (eg: www.yourname.com).

As a Premier Service Provider, we receive an unparalleled level of service and response time for InterNIC related issues.

Included with all plans
Mail Catching & Forwarding
Once your domain name is active worldwide, you can receive all e-mail addressed to your domain such as webmaster@yourname.com, sales@yourname.com, etc. By default, all e-mail addressed to your domain will forward to your assigned username@yourdomain.com (email "catching"). For convenience, specific mail forwarding options are available if you need specific addresses each to be forwarded to different addresses on the Internet. For example, e-mail addressed to webmaster@yourname.com could forward to an account at AOL, while sales@yourname.com could forward to a Prodigy account. (email forwarding)

Each of our plans includes a Master POP account which can receive all e-mail and control the settings for any optional configurable POP accounts. Each of our plans also offers a specified number of configurable POP accounts. The additional POPs can be assigned unique IDs and passwords to ensure privacy.

The shopping cart keeps track of what visitors have ordered and allows them to add or remove items from a 'virtual shopping cart'.
