How to make website go live?!


#1

Ive already designed my website at least for now its just a coming soon page but how do I go ahead and register the domain & make it go live for search engines and what not?

Please let me know.

Thanks. :slight_smile:

To register your domain name you will have to visit some domain registrar like GoDaddy or Namecheap and actually register it. Once registered you need to sign up for a free account with us using your domain name (if not done already) and change the name server entries for your domain to our name servers (ns01.000webhost.com and ns02.000webhost.com) which is done at your domain registrar… DNS propagation will take a while (24-48 hours) and when propagated you will see our default page.

From there on it is uploading your website files to the public_html directory of your 000webhost.com account which will result in your website being displayed instead of our default.php file. To add your site to search engines you have to submit it to them. For exampe Google -> https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/submit-url

Ok thank you for your help much apperciated :wink:

I have one question though once I am done. How does uploading the files to public_html so that way I can make my domain official?

You can upload your files using the file manager in members area/cpanel or by using an ftp client such as filezilla. A tutorial on how to use filezilla is here - http://www.000webhost.com/forum/faq/19132-tutorial-how-ftp-000webhost-servers.html

Not sure, seems to be a few people having problems with the file manager. You’re better off using an ftp client like filezilla.

You have uploaded them? There’s nothing more to do.
What’s your address?


#16

no,not complete upload,i uploaded just on my cp… from this point what i must to do? when my website design software (who i made my site with it) going to publish the site,the SERVER’s not permission for loging…


#17

this is loging error from my designing software when going to publishing


#18

What’s your address?

Is this it? arash.farvardin.com? You have to own the domain (buy it) you can’t just make one up.


#19

Choose the free option in members area - Manage another domain: Create new at the top.
