DNS Information:

If you have registered your domain with a registrar company that has password protected your domain, you will need to manually change the DNS information on your registrar's site, so that your domain name points to JSM-Hosting. You must provide your registrar with our DNS servers' data:

  • ns1.servershost.net (or ns1.jsm-hosting.com) - IP: 66.225.217.10  
  • ns2.servershost.net (or ns2.jsm-hosting.com) - IP: 204.93.202.61 (NEW since Dec 20 2012)

If your registrar is GANDI.net, click here for instructions.

This new DNS information will have to cascade throughout the web. Therefore your domain name will only point to JSM-Hosting (and really become "active") one or two days later.

FTP transfer

As soon as your account on JSM-Hosting is set up, you can now begin uploading your web files onto your JSM-Hosting website. You can use any FTP software (for instance, Dreamweaver, FrontPage, WS_FTP...) to upload your files onto your website.

Until your domain name is registered and points to JSM-Hosting (see DNS above), simply use "http://yourIPaddress" as the FTP host name. When your domain is active, you may then use "yourdomain.ext" as the FTP host name.

Please note that:

  • Your FTP software must be configured so that all files are uploaded in the "/www/" or the "/public_html/" directory,
  • You must now select "passive FTP mode".

We also provide you with detailed instructions for setting-up a website with Dreamweaver.
and for converting a FrontPage website to DreamWeaver.

E-mail

Full e-mail services are available on your account and are easily configurable on your Control Panel. If you are transferring an existing website to JSM-Hosting, be sure to setup ASAP any existing POP3 email accounts you currently maintain in order to have a smooth transition without any loss of e-mail.

Once your domain name points to JSM-Hosting, emails will be sent to your account on JSM-Hosting. Therefore, it is important that you get right away your e-mail settings configured properly on your Control Panel.

Here are the settings you should use for your PC-based email software (such as Outlook):

  • Username: "mailboxname@yourdomain.ext".
  • Password: the one you assigned when creating the mailbox in you panel.
  • Incoming Mail (POP3) server: "mail.yourdomain.ext".
  • Outgoing Mail (SMTP) server: "mail.yourdomain.ext", or you may have to use the one provided by your ISP (Internet Service Provider) - for instance, "relay.skynet.be" if your ISP is Skynet.

JSM-Hosting.com endorses as email software Eudora Light and Microsoft Outlook (Express) - click here for more information on setting-up Outlook email.

You can also read your emails on the web, from any PC.

Control Panel

Your Control Panel is a comprehensive version of the user friendly C-Panel. You can access it anytime at the URL https://belfast.serversecured.net:2083/ or at "http://yourIPaddress/cpanel". Simply provide "your-user-name" and "your-password" that we sent you in our initial email.

Note that you may get a "security certificate" error message. Just ignore it and click on "Continue on this website".

You may have to use "http://yourIPaddress/cpanel" for the first one or two days, until your domain name is pointing to JSM-Hosting (see DNS above).

Until your domain name is pointing to JSM-Hosting, some functions within your Control Panel will not be available or work properly. Don't panic! As soon as your domain name is pointing to JSM-Hosting, you can begin taking full advantage of all our services and features.
