That is the account that "catches" all email not addressed to a valid user in your email domain.
All of this email will be forwarded automatically to the address or addresses you choose. The catchall account can be in your domain to an external domain.
This is not recommended due to spam.

A) Our servers support IIS but not ASP.NET. We specialize in Macromedia ColdFusion hosting.

Q) I want to set up my Paladin Computers account using a brand-new domain name... who should I register with first, Paladin Computers or a domain name registrar??
A) It does not matter. However, it is generally a good idea to register the domain at a registrar as quickly as you can if you find a domain name that you would like to use that is currently available. That way you know you will own the domain name and will be able to use it. We can take care of this for you for $9.99/year per domain name.
Q) Can I register my domain myself and save money?
A) Sure. Our prices include the DNS setup too but if you'd like to do it yourself, make sure you point your DNS servers to ns1.paladincomputer.net (126.96.36.199), ns2.paladincomputer.net (188.8.131.52) and ns3.paladincomputer.net (184.108.40.206).
Q) How long does it typically take for a site to 'go live' after I register the domain with a registrar and set up the domain at Paladin Computers?
A) Provisioning normally takes less than 24 hours. Most domain name registrars get new domains ready in 24-48 hours.
