General instructions on getting started with your new web hosting package:

Place your HTML pages into the /html directory.

Place your CGIs into the /cgi-bin directory. You can place and run any CGI under /html as well, but it should end with .cgi or .pl.

To make a subdomain sub.yourdomain.com, just create subdirectories /sub and /sub/html, and place files related to your subdomain into /sub/html. You can create /sub/cgi-bin and use it as CGI directory.

The subdirectory /logs (read-only) contains your raw access log. It refreshes hourly, and rotates daily with maximum history one month.

The subdirectory /stats (read-only) contains your web statistics based on the above log. These stats are being re-generated at least once a day.

The file /.passwd is used for Control Panel authentication and should not be modified nor used for any other purposes.

Setting up email:

1. Login to control panel. (you can use the link on top of this page)

2. Go to Email Management and create your email accounts. (if the domain name is not resolving yet any emails that you create will not work)

3. You can check your email in 2 different ways. By setting up an email client like MS Outlook Express, Mozilla Messenger or Eudora, or by going to http://mail.YourDomain.Name and use the Webmail interface. Make sure that your incoming mail server is mail.YourDomain.Name and that your account name is the full email address.

4. Sending email from your email client requires you to use the outgoing SMTP server of your internet service provider, or smtp.YourDomain.Name at port 465 or 587 with authentication.

Domain name servers:

For a domain to function with your new hosting plan the name servers for your domain need to point to ns.cedant.com and ns2.cedant.com.

To verify where the nameservers are pointing goto http://www.verisign-grs.com/whois
(if you have just registered the domain it will take 24-48 hours before you see any records)

If the domain name servers need to be changed you will need to contact the current registrar company and have them repoint the nameservers.
