Congratulations on your purchase of a Server Center Web Hosting package! In this section we'll explain the procedures and steps required to access your account. Lets begin!
Username and Passwords:
These are provided in the Account Setup email. Until you change them, they're needed to authenticate everything from FTP, to Email access, Control Panel, and MS FrontPage if you're using it. In short, use this Username and Password for any access you're attempting to your account.
Accessing your account via its URL
If you've just signed up, chances are you've begun the process of a domain transfer to our servers. In all likelihood, it will take anywhere from 48 to 72 hours for all worldwide DNS records to reflect your domain name as pointing to our servers. While everything in our welcoming email refers to the domain you signed up, we recommend you use the accompanying "IP" number until you can verify your domain is actually answering to your new account on our servers.
Until such time as your domain is officially answering to our servers, you can use your new username to access and setup your web site. For example, if your assigned domain was frank.com, your welcoming email would provide the IP http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/~frank/ as an option for accessing your new account. Again, it's a great way to test all those features and make sure everything is functioning smoothly before launching your web to the world.
Let's try an example:
Accessing your Control Panel:
To access your control panel account manager, you can login into it with:
To Configure & Setup Mail Readers:
Where to upload your files:
The Home Directory:
The public_html and www directory - (Where web accessible files are placed):
These are the two directories are where files you want accessed from the web must be placed. Open the folder "public_html" , which is your "web accessible directory." The folder named "www" is actually a shortcut to public_html, (both of them take you to your web directory). Upload the files you want accessible to your visitors and feel free to make the appropriate sub-directories you'll require.
