Features of Xoops Webhosting Plans

XOOPS is a program which, when installed on an Internet host with a PHP-capable web server (e.g., Apache) and a database (e.g., MySQL), allows administrators to easily create dynamic websites with great content and many features. It is an ideal tool for developing small to large dynamic community websites, intra company portals, corporate portals, weblogs and much more.

XOOPS stands for an abbreviation of eXtensible Object Oriented Portal System. Though started as a portal system, XOOPS is in fact striving steadily on the track of Content Management System. It can serve as a web framework for use by small, medium and large sites.

***** - Unlike the other hosting companies, CarlC Internet Services uses only true servers. Not a Desktop PC motherboard with IDE/SATA drives thrown into a Pizza box. Our servers can replace disk drives without the need for downtime (we don't need to reboot your server to recover your data, all disk replacements are done as the server continues run with zero downtime.). While extremely rare, we also keep spares servers ready to go in case of physical hardware (motherboard) failures. Our servers are serviced by HP techs.
