Uploading Your Site To Our Servers

When you transfer your web site to a new hosting provider like us then the first thing to do is to upload the files to our servers. You need an offline version of your web site, if you don't have one then you can download your web site using FTP. If you are unsure of how to do this then speak to your current hosting provider. You can then login to your Eco Green Hosting control panel and use FTP or File Manager. Using the file manager just select all the files and folders for your site and upload them. Using FTP to upload the files then use the settings in your welcome email to achieve this.

Transfer Your Site To Us

When you have uploaded your web site files to us you then need to tell your domain host. Your domain host is where you bought your domain name from. You need to point your domain to our servers instead of your old web host. Login to the website where you bought the domain and find Name Servers, it should say something like NS1 and NS2. Change the name servers to ns.mainnameserver.com and ns2.mainnameserver.com, if you can't find any of this contact your domain host. This process can take 24-48 hours to start to load from our servers, so wait 48 hours before you cancel your old web hosting account.

Setting Up Your Email

Your Eco Green Hosting email/web mail is set up in the control panel, under the email section using the mail boxes icon. In this section of your control panel you can setup unlimited 400 MB email accounts, and also setup email forwarding. If you want to set it up for Outlook or other mail programs to send and receive the emails automatically then use the settings below:

  • IMAP or POP incoming Server: mail.yourdomain.co.uk
  • IMAP or POP outgoing Server: mail.yourdomain.co.uk
  • Username: emailaddress@yourdomain.co.uk
  • Password: the password you set up in your Control Panel and can be found under mailboxes.
