How to get started (New Domain)

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 change your DNS. to ns1.v-webs.com and ns2.v-webs.com

After your dns changes have been made please allow 24-48 for your dns to propagate worldwide. During this initial 24-48 hours your site will be working one minute then be offline the next. If after two days 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 put in your sites ip address under the "host address" field. Once your ftp is connected go into the "public_html" folder and begin uploading to your site. To replace the default place holder page you must upload an index.html in all 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://yourip/cpanel or after proprogation yourdomain.com/cpanel
Your webmail is located at http://yourdomain.com/webmail (won't work for first 24-48 hours)
You can view your site before the dns has proprogated at http://iphere/~usernamehere/
Note: Don't forget the trailing / and the ~
Everywhere it says youriphere put YOUR IP FROM WELCOME EMAIL. Example http://99.99.999.9/cpanel This is an example do not actually put 99.99.999.9 since this is not the ip in your email.
Support Guidelines

When to use ticket support:

The quickest and best way to get all problems solved and more complicated questions answered is by opening a support ticket. A ticket number will be e-mailed back to you. If you do not get a ticket number we did not get your Ticket. The reason ticket support is best for solving problems and answering questions is because your ticket is escalated up the food chain until your problem is solved or question is answered. Most tickets are done within minutes if it is a complicated problem it will take longer as it is moved up to higher level technicians. If you're ever unhappy with a response or need more help simply respond back to the ticket and we will continue to help you.

Please do not open multiple tickets on the same issue or your help process will be slowed down and possibly ignored completely.

Please always provide your main account domain and username as well as a step-by-step of how to reproduce your problem including any login information that may be needed.

When to use phone support:

Feel free to call us for help but keep in mind that for serious issues a ticket will be needed.


Your web hosting fee will be billed automatically every month from the date of purchase.
