Q. Can I use Java applets, JavaScript, and Flash pages on my site?

A. Yes. Those are client-side technologies, so the host doesn't have to do anything to support or enable them. Any browser (such as Safari, FireFox, or IE that supports them is enough, so any host will do. It doesn't matter whether Java or Flash are listed among the plan's features, they are supported by default.
