NATS Backup Service

Reduce the risk of losing your NATS data permanently with Too Much Media's remote backup service. This service will back up your NATS files, NATS database, and any custom Smarty functions and templates, all to an off-site server. We can help prevent data loss If a situation arises where a backup needs to be restored, we will reinstall NATS and/or re-import any data you may have lost free of charge.

We at Too Much Media recommend setting up a backup service through either us or your hosting company to reduce the risk of data loss. Our Standard Remote Backup service costs a flat fee of $75 per month, and includes three (3) backups to our server per week. If that's not enough for you, we also offer a Daily Remote Backup service, which provides you with daily backups of all your NATS files, database, and templates for $150 per month. Using this feature provides redundancy for your data, which is crucial for recovering it in cases of emergency.

Please put in a support ticket if you are interested in adding this backup service to your NATS installation.

Password Retrieval

Members can retrieve their password using the NATS form NATS offers an easy solution for your Members to quickly retrieve their lost or forgotten passwords. Site owners provide a special link to their Members that will display a small request form. This form requires the Member to provide basic account information before emailing the password to their registered email address.

To provide this option for your Members, you would link to the page "/signup/password.php" in your NATS installation with specific parameters. You would need to provide at least the siteid of the site the Member is retrieving their password for. You can also include details such as the Member's username, email address, or memberid in NATS. Once on this page, the Member will input their username and email and NATS will send an email with their password information.

For further information on utilizing the password script for your Members, please visit our wiki article here.

Build Your Own Anything Module

Available as a NATS add-on, the "Build Your Own Anything" (BYOA) module allows your affiliates to create their own tours and advertising tools and promote them within your NATS installation. This encourages your affiliates to create their own promotional material which can be used to increase exposure of your sites.

BYOA details can be set within a new tour

Once added to you NATS license, you will need to follow a few steps to configure BYOA. First, set up the BYOA payout program in the Programs Admin(). This allows you to define the payout to the affiliate(s) that has created these ad-tools or tours, as well as which affiliates are allowed into this program. Next, you will take the tour information or ad tool data provided by the affiliate and add it into your system. You will be asked to select the BYOA Owner and the BYOA program for that tour or adtool. This will tell NATS which affiliate to pay out and how much to pay the affiliate each time the ad tool or tour is used by other affiliates in your system.

include this module in your NATS installation, please submit a support ticket with us. Once you have the module set-up for NATS, you can find further details in regards to this set up in our online documentation.
