Setting up hosting for an existing domain

Last Updated: Nov 02, 2016

When you purchase a hosting package with us, it needs to be setup before it can be used. The process is quick and painless and only requires you to selece the domain you wish to associate it with. Here’s what you need to do:

  1.  Log into your Name.com account, click My Account and then click Web Hosting.
  2. Click the green Setup Now! button, next to the newly purchased hosting.

  3. To the Web Hosting Dashboard, in the Choose a domain section, click the drop down and select your desired domain.
  4. Once the domain is selected in the drop-down, click Setup Hosting Now
    Please note:
    If you wish to setup a domain that is not located in your account click the Use a domain not in your account-link and manually enter the domain (do not include "www").
  5. Click the Setup Hosting !ow! button.

In about fifteen minutes, you will be able to access your hosting and start building your site.

Note: If you do not see the Setup option on the my products page, the hosting is already set up.
