should receive a total of two emails after placing an order with eMegaWeb Hosting.
The first email should arrive immediately after entering your
credit card information on our billing page. This email is a payment
receipt for your records. The next email will contain crucial information
(control panel access, FTP information, name server information, etc.).
This email will come as soon as we process and verify your order. Once you receive the second message, your account is active
on our servers.
Domain Names -- New or Transferred:
In order to operate
correctly with eMegaWeb, you need to update your domain registration
to show a change in the domain name servers (DNS) to the name servers listed in
the welcome message. Before
you can begin using many of eMegaWeb's services
Email, Front-Page, web site,
stats, and so on), your domain name must point
to our DNS. This may take some time depending on how long
it takes internet service providers around the globe to refresh their DNS information.
This usually takes approximately 24-48 hours. You can,
however, begin uploading files to your account immediately. You can also
preview your site before the domain propagation completes. Once your domain is
configured properly and the changes have propagated, your files will appear when
you enter your domain name in your browser.
You're just about set!
you can begin uploading files to your web site. There are two different
methods of uploading your files. The first method is FTP. You will
need to use a FTP client to transfer your files to our server. There are
many great programs you can use to FTP. We recommend using FileZilla.
FileZilla is a fast and reliable FTP client and server with lots of useful
features and an intuitive interface. FileZilla can be downloaded at the
following address: http://filezilla.sourceforge.net/
You can also use Microsoft Front-Page to
upload your files to your site. If you use Front-Page, you can take
advantage of Front-Page extensions. You
will need the following information to login to your account:
Username: Username specified in the order form
Password: Password specified in the order form
Once you are logged into your FTP account, you will see a batch of folders.
All of your files should go into the httpdocs folder. All CGI-scripts must go into the CGI-bin
