Getting Started with your Hosting Account

Getting Started with Your E Shop Hosts eCommerce Hosting Plan

Welcome to E Shop Hosts

The following steps should quickly guide you through setting up your e-commerce web sites with us.


STEP 1: Make Sure you have the E Shop Hosts Welcome Email

Before you can get started, you need your E Shop Hosts Welcome Email.

When you opened your ecommerce hosting account with us you would have received shortly after our email confirmation titled "Welcome to E Shop Hosts". This email is sent automatically to the email address provided during registration and contains all of your unique account details such as your domain name, your log-in usernames and passwords. It is advisable to print this email and keep it in a safe place for future reference.

Don't have the E Shop Hosts Welcome email: Please confirm that you have completed the purchasing process. This may include mailing a check for payment in some cases. You won't receive the email until we have received and credited your payment. Also, please verify that the email was not blocked by an email spam filter. If you still don't have the email then please notify us via our contact web form.
Assistance

If you have questions about your web hosting account or your WEC website then please login to the Client Center Client Area using the account Username and Password provided in the Welcome email, then click "Submit Ticket" and follow the instructions to request assistance. Please feel free to request help. We want to ensure that you get started as smoothly as possible.


STEP 2:
Complete the Domain Name Setup Process

During registration, you identified one of four ways to establish a domain name for your new website. Your domain name was included in the Welcome Email. Please click on just one option below that matches the option you chose when you purchased hosting. This will open a new browser page with specific instructions. Once your domain name is working you can move on to the next step.

1.
We purchased a new domain from you when we ordered. (Order form said, "We do not have a domain name yet and want to register one now")

2.
We are transferring our current domain to E Shop Hosts. (Order form said, "We have a domain name already and want to transfer our domain registration management to E Shop Hosts")

3.
We are setting the NameServers ourselves. (Order form said, "We have a domain name and/or an existing website, but want to set the NameServers ourselves")

STEP 3:
Preparing Your Web Account

The E Shop Hosts Hosting Plans are ideal for ecommerce web sites that want the option to use any of the ecommerce features and E Shop Hosts support facilities. Each hosting plan allows you to upgrade to higher plans any time you choose and the additional features will be available immediately after the upgrade.

If you haven't received a notification email that the setup is complete then we are in the process of setting it up for you. The setup process usually goes pretty fast, but can take a few working days if our team is very busy. Once the setup is complete, you can begin working on your website immediately by just logging in with the username and password we provided you in the Welcome Email.
Using Your New Website

Along with many other features, your ecommerce hosting plan includes full cpanel area access which gives you the 'one click' software install options, set up your email accounts, access the public html to install or edit your web site files and much more.
