|Welcome to Modulindo Hosting!
Let us help familiarize you with some of the steps to get your
website up and running.
Step One: You will
need a domain name. You can register your domain name for
Rp. 150,000,- a year at Modulindo or you can register it yourself.
If you'd like for us to handle it for you, just click "Register
Domain" or click here!.
Important things to remember:
Registering Your Domain name does not mean you have a website.
It means that you have a domain name reserved for your use.
If you've registered your domain name yourself, you will need
to make sure that the nameservers for the domain (in the domain
account settings) points to the server that you are hosting
on. If you are hosting with Modulindo Hosting the nameservers
should be: server.modulindo.com and launch.modulindo.com.
If you need assistance with this step, contact customer
support and we will be happy to assist.
Step Two: Hosting Your Website
Now that you have a domain name, you will need a place to
put your website. Hosting is actually means leasing space
on a server (computer) that is set up specifically for that
purpose. Hosting Servers have features such as high bandwidth
(Fast speed), extra security and the account features that
you will be using with your website. These things are part
of what makes a hosting server different from any other computer/server.
Okay, now you need to decide which hosting plan you need.
Chances are that if you are setting up your first website,
you won't need a huge hosting plan and can probably get away
with one of our smaller hosting plans. Once you have decided
which hosting plan you want, you simply click on "Order
Now!" at the package or at the top of our pages and you
will be taken to the order form page. We highly recommend
that you read over our policies and guidelines prior to ordering
so that you know exactly what allow and do not allow.
Once you have ordered your hosting plan, you will receive
a welcome letter which contains all of your hosting account
information such as your username and password along with
instructions on how to get to your control panel. Your control
panel gives you the ability to easily modify and maintain
Now, chances are that you won't be able to reach the control
panel using your domain name yet because it takes approximately
24 hours for the domain name to resolve (point to) our servers
once you have registered it and/or modified the nameservers
so that they point to our servers. So you will need to type
in the ip number to reach your control panel and website for
the first 24 hours or so. It will look something like this:
Okay. So you are set up with your domain name and your web
hosting. Now you need to set up your email account(s) and
design your website.
Step Three: Setting Up Your Email Account(s)
To set up your email accounts, log in as Site Administrator,
click on "Mailboxes/Users" in your control panel.
From the Mail Manager you can set up your pop email accounts,
auto-responders, forwarded mail, catch all account, etc. When
you first login you will see that there is already a default
email account which is currently set up as your login name,
ftp, mail, majordomo and root account. It will be email@example.com.
If anyone sends an email to your domain it will go directly
to that account. You can either use that email address or
you can delete it and add a more personal one such as "firstname.lastname@example.org"
or "email@example.com", etc.
Once you have set up your email address(es), you will need
to add them to your mail program such as outlook or outlook
express, eudora, etc. You will need the following settings
to for setting up your pop email accounts:
Email Address = firstname.lastname@example.org
Mail Server user name = mail.yourdomain.com
Outgoing SMTP Mail Server = use your ISP SMTP Server!
Incoming POP3 Mail Server = mail.yourdomain.com
Step Five: Designing Your Website
Designing your website can seem overwhelming if you've never
created a website before. The most common choices are:
