Getting Started With Your Server

AIMwebs: Getting Started

The very first step is to change your domains DNS to the name servers you received in your welcome email. Note: If you purchased your domain from us we will do this step for you. If you didn't purchase it from us and need more information please email support@aimwebs.com, subject: Changing DNS.

After your DNS changes have been made please allow 12-24 hours for your DNS to propagate worldwide. During this initial period your site will be available via FTP for loading of your files. If after 24 hours your site is still not working contact us ASAP.

*NOTE: By default you have no email address setup. The main username may look like it's a setup email, but if you wish to use it you will need to add it as an email account.

Uploading to your site

You can begin uploading to your account now by using a FTP client or cPanel's File Manager. If you are using an FTP program put in your sites ip address under the "host address" field. Once your ftp is connected go into the "public_html" folder and upload your files to this folder. To replace the default place holder page you must upload an index.html . All file names must be in lowercase lettering.

Control Panel And Important Links

  • Note: "yourdomain.com" should be your sites IP address until your DNS has proprogated.
  • Your control panel is located at http://yourdomain.com/cpanel
  • Your webmail is located at http://yourdomain.com/webmail
  • You can view your site before the DNS has proprogated at http://iphere/~usernamehere/
  • Note: Don't forget the trailing / and the ~
