Step 1: You must have your own domain name
a. If you do not, go our sister company webnamesource.comto register a new domain name.
b. If you have a domain name you will be using for your hosting account here at WebNameHost and it is not already registered it with us at WebNameSource, you should go our sister company webnamesource.comto transfer administrative control (not ownership) of the existing domain to us (you pay for another year at the same time).
c. If you need us to do either of these for you, you can tell us so as part of the ordering process, but the cost will be higher than doing it yourself.
d. If you are an advanced user with a domain name already who wishes to keep it registered elsewhere, we understand, but you will have to handle the DNS changes yourself. Be sure you can change nameservers or other data at any time, as we sometimes move accounts to different servers, and you don't want to get cut off. If you don't know what DNS is, or don't understand the above, register with us, transfer to us,
e. OR host almost any domain name you like as a subdomain under g8.to or host sites with Christian content under 1g8.net (nice short domains). The hosting cost is the same, and you get your own control panel, but you don't have to buy a domain name. Just provide the full domain name in the form me.g8.to or me.1g8.net when you order. (You can't use our trade names, adult or rude names, or obvious trademarks. Advantage: cheaper and shorter. Disadvantage: You don't own the name, you only use it while you're hosting with us.
Step 2: You must agree to our hosting policies
Failure to abide by the no adult, no spam, no illegal sites policies will result in cancellation without refund. Do not proceed until you have read these policies and are satisfied you can abide by them.
Step 3: Select the hosting plan that suits your needs
The basic plans are billed anually, larger plans every six months, and reseller plans every three months. If you don't see a plan that suits your needs, contact us for a quote.
