Q. I have been notified that my account has been set up but my site is still not active.

A. It generally takes 24-72 hours for domain names to become active. This is just how the Internet works; there is no way we can speed up the process. If you have received a notification e-mail and it's been over 72 hours, it means you did not point your domain name to the right host. Check. Then contact us.

Q. I published my files with FP or FTP, but my web site's not there. Why not?

A. Did you take care to delete the placeholder index file and replace it? Did you point the domain nameservers to our server? If both are "yes" and it has been over 72 hours since the site was set up by us, contact us, and we'll straighten things out.

Q. I want to get started right away, but my domain name hasn't gone live in the registry.

A. FTP or HTTP to your site's special address that we gave you in your welcome letter documentation ("serverName.com/~username") and sign on with your username and password. Be sure the FTP client is pointing into www (or public_html, which is the same folder).
