How to Sign Up for Web Hosting Service
There are two things that you need to do (in no particular order) to get your own domain name up and running with Paul Bunyan Net's Web Hosting service: Apply for Web Hosting service and purchase a domain name.
Applying for Web Hosting Service
If you have any services from Paul Bunyan Communications, you can contact us to have Web Hosting added to your current account. If you do not any services with us:
You will need to choose and register a domain name and then "point" it to us. This may be done before or after setting up your Web Hosting account. However, your Web Hosting account will not work until this is done. If you are not familiar with this process or would like help, please contact us and we can help you.
Domain names can be found and purchased from Dotster, GoDaddy or any other domain name registrar. Typically a .com, .net, or .org domain name will cost $7 - $35 per year depending on the registrar. When registering your domain name, fill out the Owner, Administrative, and Billing contact information with your name or company's name and information. The Technical contact and Name Servers that you need are listed below. If you already have a domain name registered, just go to your registrar's website, login and change the Technical Contact and Name Servers to the one's below.
Technical Contact Information
In the settings listed below, replace "yourdomain.com" with your website's address. For example, if your website is www.bemidjibusiness.net then you would change your incoming mail server to "mail.bemidjibusiness.net".
For most website owners or administrators who do not do their own website design, you will probably only access cPanel to manage your e-mail accounts and view your website statistics.
You can access your e-mail from your webmail site when you are not on your primary computer or you are outside the Paul Bunyan Net service territory. We do not recommend using the webmail center as your primary access to your e-mail. Please set up e-mail software (i.e. Windows Live Mail, Mac Mail, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, Windows Mail, Outlook, etc.) on the computer you use the most.
There are three webmail programs there for you to use:
Feel free to use the one you are most comfortable with. Your mail will be displayed in any of them you choose. You can alternate between them also if you wish.
