Web Hosting Setup

When your domain account was created you received an email that gave your your username, password, and some other information. This page explains what you can do with this information.

Here is a sample email that we'll use for the instructions below:

Hi Tom -

Your account has been created and it will be active worldwide in less than two days. Here is your account information:

domain: yourdomain.com

ftp username: TomJones
ftp password: 1mNotUnusual

email username: tom.jones
email password: 1mNotUnusual
primary email address: info@yourdomain.comThis e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Your domain account is special in that it allows ftp access to your website's root folder and it has an email address attached to it. If you have more email users for your domain, the users associated with them will not have ftp access.

To access your email you have two options: webmail clients and desktop clients.


Desktop Email

To check your mail using desktop clients, use the following servers:

Mail Servers
Protocol Server name
POP (incoming) pop.yourdomain.com
SMTP (outgoing) smtp.yourdomain.com

Your ISP may require that you use their SMTP server. Click here for help configuring your mail client.

FTP information

You can upload your website's files directly to your ftp server using the following information:

FTP Server Information
Type Information
protocol ftp
username your_userid (e.g. TomJones)
password your_password (e.g. 1mNotUnusual)
server ftp.yourdomain.com
web directory /www/yourdomain.com/

If you would like to upload your website before your account is accessible (during the 2 days of DNS propagation), you can replace ftp.yourdomain.com as the ftp server with one of the following: fieldco4.fieldco.net or fieldco7.fieldco.net. Click here for help with ftp settings.

For more information or if you have any questions about setting up your new account, please do not hesitate to ask. We are happy to help. Welcome to FieldCo!
