Reseller Hosting – Getting Started Guide

Thank you for purchasing your Reseller web hosting account from SkyNetHosting.Net Inc. This guide will help you get started with your new Reseller account and provides the information you need to get your site and your customers’ sites up and running.

Welcome Email: First step before getting started is to read the Welcome Email that we have sent you which includes your reseller account logins and details. It’s very important to read this email in full and become familiar with all the features that we are offering before getting started.

Updating Nameservers: The next step is to update nameservers and point your primary website and client websites to our servers as follows;

We offer 2 nameserver options as outlined in your welcome email;

1. Default Nameservers

If this option is chosen you simply have to “CHANGE” your domain’s nameservers to the default nameservers given under the “NAMESERVER INFORMATION” section in your welcome email. The process of changing nameservers defer depending on the registry that you have registered the domain as explained here;

2. Private Nameservers

Private nameservers would be ideal if you want to brand your nameservers with your company name and however, the only drawback is that it involves slightly complicated setup to have them enabled initially and once it’s set up it’s very easy to use them.

To setup your own private nameservers, you must first enable them from WHM > “Basic WebHost Manager® Setup”, from there tick the icon that says “Explicitly Set the Nameservers” and enter the private nameservers given in your welcome email and hit “Save” button.

Then next step is to create same nameservers at your domain registrar as explained below. This process is called creating private nameservers or child nameservers and may defer from registrar to registrar. If you are unsure please, ask the steps from your domain registrar support.
