How to open your web site on our servers? - step by step.

Important: To have a website on our servers, you need to have a hosting account setup first.

Our servers are automated to open your websites instantly.  However, before we give you that control we would like to open your initial web hosting account by our self.  To submit a request for a website account and a web site, go to;
     -- Hosting Request Form

-- Hosting Request Form is a simple form that you fill-out and submit.  Upon receiving the information we activate your website and send you instructions on how to transfer your domain.

Once you have your hosting account setup and an initial website running, you can logon to manage your existing sites and open new websites instantly without our intervention.  We will use your credit card information on our file to bill you appropriately. 

Important: Before you proceed to create your additional websites, please note that creating a web site dynamically is a complex process.  Although we test our scripts to be error free, there are chances that you may encounter an error.  Therefore, if you come across an error during the website activation process, kindly notify our customer service immediately so that we can fix the error and help you put your web site online with minimum delay.  If you encounter an error please notify us and use the hosting request form.
