Information to help you with your web site
Thank you for choosing Net Atlantic for your web hosting. For further information, please review our frequently asked questions and the in-depth guide to cPanel. The cPanel file manager allows you to modify content and files using easy point-and-click uploading, editing, copying, and more. Please contact us with any questions or comments.
1. Uploading Your Web Site
For your site to appear on the Internet, it needs to live in your site’s public_html directory. You can use the FILE MANAGER to upload files to this directory and to other directories by using the Upload file(s) option.
NOTE: If the upload was successful, "Upload Status filename.extension (filename.extension): upload succeeded", will appear. The "filename.extension" will be the name of the file(s) you have uploaded.
2. FTP Programs
If you want to create the pages in a different program and then upload them without using the file manager, you will need an FTP (file-transfer protocol) program. These programs will use your FTP Access settings (sent in your welcome email) to connect your site and upload files.
3. cPanel Interface and Included Software
Your new webhosting account comes with features and free software such as:
Video Tutorials, WebMail, Online File Manager, Webalizer Traffic Reports, SSH/Shell Access, Parked Domains, MySQL Databases, CGI/PHP Scripts, an Image Manager, and more.
4. Windows Web Hosting
If you are interested in using Windows NT hosting, please contact our Technical Support department so that we can answer your questions.
5. Building Your Web Site
Several HTML editing programs are available to help you design, edit and publish (upload) your Web site. We recommend:
PC Web Site Programs:
Microsoft Expression Web
Mac Web Site Programs:
Free Web Site Editors:
NetObjects Fusion Essentials
By default, the server will look for in order and display the first of these pages it finds when someone simply enters either yourdomain.com or www.yourdomain.com. Your home page name must use lower case letters.
7. Webalizer Web Site Statistics
Now that your Web site is published, you need to know who visits. You can easily view various tracking reports and statistics by clicking on the Webalizer icon in the “Logs” section of your cPanel home page. Webalizer reports show the number of hits your site received, top search terms that found your site, pages most frequently visited, and more. Check frequently to analyze web traffic, and respond to the results.
8. Creating New Email Accounts
Your account comes with a minimum of 10 free POP (post-office protocol) email accounts visible on the main screen of the cPanel interface. If you need additional email accounts, please contact technical support to upgrade.
Note: If the email account was created successfully, the following message will appear with the information you provided:
