In Detail...

Customers' UNIX accounts on our system can be accessed via SSH into the server/machine over their existing dialup Internet access. The machines that the accounts run on are actually in the United Kingdom, but can be accessed with almost as much speed from anywhere in the world.

Some of the shell's features are...

  • Every user can pick his/her own userid (login) and password needed for access to our systems. Users may also request the additional information like the 'Real Name' field to be changed (or change it themselves with the chfn command) for confidentiality.

  • Full Access to UNIX shell via a command line on a powerful machine linked to a fast connection to the Internet.

  • 20 Megabytes of storage space on server (cheap additional disk space on request).

  • WWW (World Wide Web) services (non-commercial) allowing users to have their own virtual web server of http://www.userid.Able-Towers.com/.

  • Users can create their own Virtual FTP site of ftp.userid.Able-Towers.com.

  • Full IRC access with the use of an unrestricted IRC client allowing users to DCC GET/SEND, load scripts and other features of the ircII client. Users will also be allowed to go on (and have access to) any IRC network they choose.

  • Use of the screen command allowing a user to run simultanious logins e.t.c. in the same login. Users use their background process (instead of bot), or may purchase a second process (see pricing below), to leave screen in background on IRC e.t.c. and resume next login to system. Useful if you wish to leave an IRC client connected 24/7.

  • Run a full IRC server 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It will have it's own IP as a virtual server, e.g. irc.userid.Able-Towers.com, with any ports.

  • You receive an e-mail account with us. Users are able to use our systems' e-mail services to send and receive e-mail on the Internet and locally. Mail can be posted and collected via a menu-driven client in the UNIX shell, from their Windows/Mac client off our POP3 server. With unlimited virtual domain addresses.

  • Use of standard compilers for the programmers.

  • With access to the FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client, users may get/put files from/to other FTP sites on the Internet using our fast link. We will also have a large variety of shareware files available through FTP to our users. We are on an extremely fast link located directly on a backbone itself, so transfer speeds will be high!

  • Multiple virtual host domains available for public use.

  • And more... all of the standard features of a UNIX shell are supported.
