Domain Hosting

Control Panel

Your website now has its own control panel. Some of the things that you can do with your control panel include:

  • Add/Remove/Change email accounts
  • Add/Remove/Change FTP accounts
  • Install popular website tools like a Wordpress blog or a Content Management System
  • View your visitor statistics using AW Stats
  • See how much space you're using

To access your control panel, add /cpanel to the end of your domain name (example: www.yourdomain.com/cpanel). You can then log in with your email address and password to access all of the features in the control panel.

Designing your website

Before you can upload your website, you will need to design it. There are many programs available for designing your website.

If you are looking for a program you can use to design your website, a free program we suggest is Kompozer from http://www.kompozer.net/.

If you are looking for an FTP client to upload files to your web directory we suggest using FileZilla.

Uploading your website

Logging in:

For the "Server" or "Host," enter the name of your domain.
    Example: somedomain.net

If there is a place to enter a subdirectory, you should enter "www" (without the quotation marks.) If there is not another field for that, then enter it in the "Server" or "Host" field.
    Example: somedomain.net/www

In the username box, enter the username that you gave us @ the domain. You need the domain part in there or it will not work.
    Example: joeuser@somedomain.net

The password is case sensitive.  That means that if it's lower case on our end, it needs to be lower case when you type it in.

Where do I upload my website?

/www: or /public_html
The www directory is where the content for www.<yourdomain.dom> is kept. In this folder, if you want a page to be displayed automatically when someone goes to your website, that file must be named "index". The index document names that the server checks for are: index.html; index.htm; index.php; index.cgi; index.pl.

NOTE: Content on this server is case sensitive. If you include an image on your web page, make sure you point to the correct file.  e.g. if you have a file 'images/Logo.jpg' your image tag should be
      <img src="images/Logo.jpg">
NOT
      <img src="images/logo.jpg">

robots.txt
In your /www folder is a file called robots.txt. The purpose of this file is to prevent search engines from finding specific parts of your website. You can get more information from the Internet about robots.txt if you'd like to learn more about it.

If you are using TFmail, your POST action should post to /cgi-bin/TFmail.pl
