Free Space
To check how much web space you have left on your account, login to the File Manager and scroll down to the bottom of the page. There should be a line telling you that #### used, ##### free space is left. This tells you just how much space your site and web board is taking up now and how much space is left on your account for you to use. To get more space, delete files or add more disk space here.

Set Up Your Own Customized "404:File Not Found" Page
If you are hosting your own domain, you can set up your own 404:File Not Found error page. To do this, create a file called missing.html in the root directory of your site. As long as it's called missing.html and it's in your root www directory, the server will display it whenever someone tries to access a page on your domain that does not exist.

Unzip Files In Your Site
Most of our Members unzip files on their local computers before uploading. However it is possible to unzip files in your site using PHP. Here are the instructions:

  1. Download bhwunzip.phpx which is an easy PHP unzip tool.
  2. Rename the file to bhwunzip.php.
  3. Upload your new zip together with bhwunzip.php to your server.
  4. Make sure the zip file is in the correct directory on your server where you would like it to be extracted.
  5. Open the file bhwunzip.php in your browser. For example, if you upload it to your base directory, open the following with your browser:
    http://www.yourdomain.com/bhwunzip.php
  6. Browse your server's directories and click the zip file to unzip it.
  7. When you're finished you can delete both the zip file and bhwunzip.php to save space.
We can also unzip files for you if you give us clear instructions.
