I have registered a web address but I have no idea how to get it hosted. Will you tell me what I need to do first?

If you mean you bought a domain, the first step is to go to your registrar's website and set its DNS servers to ns1.heliohost.org and ns2.heliohost.org.


After that, if you don't already have an account here, you need to either sign up when registrations open at midnight UTC, or donate and receive an invitation to skip the wait and automatically get an account on our fastest server. Then you just enter your domain when directed during sign up, wait an hour or two, and it'll work :)


Once it works, you just need to install software and build a website. The Softaculous option in cPanel can install the software for you (Joomla is a good choice for many websites because there's tons of templates and plugins available for it), but you'll need obviously need to make your own content.

Please do not PM me for support. Posting on our forums lets all of us learn.
