Purchasing and Setting Up A Hosting Account

Please follow these directions and/or watch the video for information on creating and verifying your account. Video link:

A Sitelutions Space Account is necessary if you wish to use our hosting system (which includes the well-known cPanel hosting platform) to host your web sites. Sitelutions Space Accounts can be purchased and configured by doing the following steps:

  1. Go to the Sitelutions Space and Control Center. If you have no current hosting accounts, the system will give you message telling you that and provide you with a link to the hosting plan purchasing page. If you already have a hosting account, you can still purchase another one by clicking “Purchase a hosting account”.

  2. Either link listed will take you to the Product Listing page, which is where you can select the hosting plan that you would like and choose the duration of hosting that you would like to purchase. You can view the difference between the hosting plans HERE. (All Insider’s club members get varying discounts for each purchase).

  3. Once you click “buy” next to the plan that you would like, you should see a green button in the top right that says something like “1 item in cart. Check out now!”. It will take you to the Shopping Cart page.

  4. If everything looks correct in your shopping cart, click “place order”. You will then be prompted to enter in your credit card information. Once you have done that, click “Submit Payment”

  5. You will see a thank you message that also confirms that your order is complete. Go to your Sitelutions Space and Control Panel and you will see that you have an account, but it has not been configured yet. You will not be able to log into your hosting account until you configure it.

  6. Click “Begin Configuration Wizard”. This will take you to a Space Account Setup Page that lets you set your username, password, and primary domain for your hosting account. Once you submit your data, you should now be able to see your account and be able to log into it. (It may take up to 3 minutes for the account to set up).

  7. The Sitelutions Space and Control Panel allows you to see some settings on your account and you can purchase upgrades and add-ons through this interface. NOTE: You will not be able to configure add-on domains, parked domains, or sub-domains in the CPanel interface. You will need to do all of the above in the Space Control Panel using the [configure] links that show up next to the text for Add-On Domains, Subdomains, and Parked Domains.

  8. Once you login to CPanel, you will have many options that will allow you to create and manage your website and email.
