Adding and removing plan features

NetNation's hosting plans are available with a number of different features, from email accounts to ecommerce shopping carts to SQL databases. Some features, such as email accounts, are included automatically. Other features must be activated or specially ordered before they are available to you.

Most features can be added to your account using AccountManager's Plan Info section. The following table lists the features that can be added from the Plan Info section.

The specific features available to you vary depending upon your platform and plan type. For detailed information about what is included with your plan and for information on ordering additional features not included with your plan by default, visit www.netnation.com or contact sales@netnation.com.

Adding/Activating features

Some of your plan features may have to be activated before you can use them. For example, if you want to use Microsoft FrontPageŽ to upload your Web site files, you will need to activate FrontPage Extensions.

To activate a feature:

  1. In AccountManager, click Plan Info.
  2. Click the Change link to the right of the Features list. The Features page appears.
  3. Click the add new features link. A list of all the features currently available for your plan appears. The features on this list vary depending upon the type of plan you have selected.
  4. Click the feature you want to add. Important information about that feature, including any additional charges that may apply, appears. Review this information carefully.
  5. To add the feature, click Add.

Removing or deactivating features

Sometimes you may not need a feature that is included with your plan. For example, you may have originally planned to use RealAudio to play music on your site, but now you have decided not to. If you no longer need a feature, you can remove or deactivate it from within AccountManager. Removing a feature may free up disk space that you can use for other purposes.

To delete or deactivate a plan feature:

  1. In AccountManager, click Plan Info.
  2. Click the Change link to the right of the Features list. The Features page appears.
  3. In the list of currently active features, locate the feature you want to delete/deactivate and then click the corresponding Delete link.
