I don't have a domain, how do I get one?
First you would need to register one at a registrar like godaddy.com or networksolutions.com. Once you register the domain name you would have to provide them with our nameservers which are above. It will take a few days for the domain to point over to us.

Log into your registrar and provide them with our name servers (they are above). Like we mentioned above, it will take a few days for that domain to propagate over to us.
What is FTP?
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. It's the protocol used to upload and download files to and from our servers. In order to upload files to our servers and download files from our servers to your computer to either edit them or back them up you would need an FTP client. An FTP client is a program that you install on your computer which allows you to connect to our servers and choose files to upload and download. Some very popular FTP programs are CuteFTP, WSFTP and FlashFXP.
I have my FTP client, what do I enter for the hostname(server name), username and password?
All FTP programs ask you for a server name which is your domain name, for example: lenernethosting.com, a username and a password. Your welcome email from us provides all this information to you.
My FTP client has a split window with files on the left and the right, what does this mean?
All FTP clients have a split window. The files on the left are the files on your computer (similar to My Computer) and the files on the right are the files on the server. If you only see files on the left and the right side is blank that mean you aren't connected to the server.
Where do I upload my web files im my FTP client?
Once you are connected, please double click on the httpdocs folder on the right. This is the folder where you would upload your website.
I uploaded my website files but my website isn't coming up, what should I do?
If your domain name has propagated and your not seeing your uploaded site and just the placeholder page, please make sure you uploaded your files to the httpdocs folder and the first page of your site is called index.html.
What should the email settings be in my email client? (ex: Outlook Express)
Incoming Server (POP3): mail.yourdomain.com (ex: mail.lenernethosting.com)
Outgoing Server (SMTP): mail.yourdomain.com (ex: mail.lenernethosting.com)
Username/Login Name: complete email address (ex: email@example.com)
Password: the password in the welcome email we sent after signup
I can't send email with your outgoing mail server.
Most ISP's (Internet Service Providers - Comcast, Bellsouth, etc..) won't allow their customers (yourself) to send emails with 3rd party mail server. So the fix is to use your ISP's outgoing mail server. Please contact your support department and ask them for their SMTP server.
Where do I go to log into Webmail?
You can either click on the "WebMail" link on the top right of this page or go there directly at http://webmail.yourdomainname.com (ex: webmail.lenernethosting.com).
I'm at the WebMail login page, what do I enter for the username and password?
The welcome email we sent out provides you with the URL and login to your control panel. In the control panel you can setup email addresses. Just click the "Mail" button. You will be asked to setup an email address and to create a password for it. So, when you are at the WebMail login page, your username would be your complete email address, for example: firstname.lastname@example.org and your password would be the one you setup in the control panel.
