By now you should have received your Welcome email and right now we are just verifying your account. Once it is verified, which usually takes a few minutes during business hours (9am - 9pm EST) and about an hour during off business hours, we will send you an email with the subject 'New Account Information'.
This email contains everything you need to know about getting your website published to our servers and transferring your domain if you have chosen to do so.
Watch our step-by-step video for how to migrate your website from MobileMe
Transferring from MobileMe is very easy. When you sign up, select the option to transfer your domain to our RAGE Web Hosting. Once you receive an email from us with the subject 'New Account Information' follow these steps;
- In the New Account Information email look for the FTP & iWeb Publishing instructions.
- In iWeb, select your website in the upper left hand corner of iWeb. This is where you enter your publishing details.
- From the drop down menu called Publish To: at the top of the window, select FTP Server
- Enter the FTP information exactly as shown in the 'New Account Information' email. When entering your username and password, the capitalization of the characters must match exactly.
- Now just press the Publish Site button to publish your website to our servers.
You will see three options once you press the Sign up button on the first step of the order process. Here they are explained in more detail;
- Register a new domain
- Transfer existing domain to RAGE Web Hosting
- Update existing domain to point to RAGE Web Hosting
Select this option if you do not currently have a website set up. Here you will create a new domain to access your website (example http://www.ragesw.com).
If you already have a domain that you purchased with another company you can transfer the domain to us, which means all management of your website will go through us. If you select the option below, your domain will stay with the company you purchased it from. The process of transferring your domain can take upwards of 1 week. However your website will NOT stop working during this period.
Select this option if you purchased a domain with another company and just want to update it so it points to our servers. This means that your domain will stay with your original domain registrar and you will update it with them so that it points to our servers.
Yes, you will keep your current website address. From your visitors perspective nothing will change and your website will never be offline.
The EPP code is just a string of text that is used to verify that you are the actual domain owner when you want to transfer your domain to another company. The company you used to register your domain will have it so all you have to do is email them and ask them to send it to you. Then when you sign up for web hosting with us and want to transfer your domain, you will be asked to enter it on the sign up form.
The process is extremely simple and takes only a few minutes. You can keep your current domain name and your website will not go offline. We have step-by-step tutorials explaining everything that happens when you want to transfer your website. This video uses Godaddy as an example but the process is virtually identical with any other company.
Transfer your website to RAGE Web Hosting
Yes you can and should continue to use iWeb to build your website. Our servers are highly compatible with iWeb so you won't have a problem. Please see our video tutorial for using iWeb with our servers;
Publish Using iWeb
Your website will look and function exactly as it does now. There are a few things that don't work on Non-MobileMe hosted websites when using iWeb. Fortunately we have provided much better alternatives for you;
Blog commenting only works with MobileMe hosted websites. However we offer one-click installation of WordPress. WordPress is a much more powerful blogging system that lets you create blog posts from any computer.
The iWeb Hit Counter displays how many visitors have visited your page. Including a hit counter on your website is not something any modern website does anymore. Instead they use traffic analytics software such as Google Analytics. We offer a free and easy way to include Google Analytics on your iWeb site. We also include our own built in Analytics software that you can use without any configuration. Analytics software tells you where your visitors come from, how long they spend on your website, what pages they visit most and much more.
iWeb's password protection features will not work when not publishing to MobileMe. However, we offer the same functionality through our control panel once you have signed up.
Yes, we offer the abiity to password protect your entire site or just certain sections of your site. You can even create custom usernames and passwords for certain visitors. Setting up password protection is very easy to do and does not require any technical skills.
Yes, we fully support any web building apps including; RapidWeaver, Sandvox, Freeway and Muse.
We fully support any web creation app including, but not limited to; RapidWeaver, Sandvox, Freeway, Muse, Dreamweaver etc...
