Selecting a hosting plan and getting a domain
Firstly, you will need to select your hosting plan. Compare them at https://www.isodme.com/hosting
For our demonstration, we will be choosing a free plan. Now, click on "choose plan."
After doing so, you will be redirected to the following page:
- Register a new domain - You will register a new domain. Prices start at about ~6 dollars per year.
- Transfer your domain from another registrar - You will get an EPP verification code to transfer your domain from another domain registrar. Prices start at about ~6 dollars per year
- I will use my existing domain and update my nameservers - At many domain registration companies, you can change your nameservers. You can use this option if you want to use your domain but are uncomfortable transferring it to us. We will create a website with your domain name, but your domain and website will not be "linked" until you change your nameservers to two or more of the following: jonathan.ns.isodme.com, jack.ns.isodme.com, jackson.ns.isodme.com, justin.ns.isodme.com, jacob.ns.isodme.com. Cost: FREE, but you need to already own a domain.
- Use a subdomain from ISODME - A subdomain goes by the following format: example.site.isodme.com. Your site will be put where "example" is. In order to connect your domain to this option, you can put a CNAME record to your domain. This will allow users to access your website via your domain. If you do not own a domain, this is the perfect option as it is 100% FREE and you will still get a website.
If you will be using the option to use our nameservers while you maintain your domain on another provider, use the following nameservers:
jackson.ns.isodme.com jack.ns.isodme.com justin.ns.isodme.com jacob.ns.isodme.com jonathan.ns.isodme.com
For this example, we will be using a subdomain of mywebsite.site.isodme.com. Your subdomain needs to be at least four characters long. At the cart, check that everything is correct.
Now, sign up and ensure that all of your information is correct. Please read through the terms of service and then complete your order. If a payment is required, you will need to pay.
Now, wait as the order is processed. This may take a few minutes. Now, you should receive the following page:
Accessing the control panel
Click on "Continue to Client Area."
Your page should look something like this:
Click on "Services." Now, please select your order. Be careful. Do not click on the blue text containing your website name. Click on the white area around it, as shown in the following image.
After, you will come to the following order page:
Click on the button at the bottom that says "Login to Control Panel."
You are now on the Webmin/Virtualmin control panel! Use the file manager to upload, script installers to install Wordpress, etc.
You can also enable SSL to secure connections to your website.
Happy website creating!
