Information needed for sign-up
« on: March 05, 2008, 02:24:06 PM »
Hi,
Before I start the sign up process I just wanted to see what information is needed? Are there any decisions I'm going to have to make that I may want to do research on first? This hosting will be used for a gift shop website, CubeCart for the shopping cart and Paypal for payments. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank You!

I would suggest either the Basic or Business plans.  If you are going to have more of an e-commerce setup, then the Business plan might save you some dough in the long run due to the fact that it comes with a free dedicated IP (upon request) and free installation of a dedicated SSL certificate if needed.  Hope that heps, and if you have any other questions please feel free to let us know.

Thanks Mitch, How about sign up questions like whether you want Premium restore, ssh/shell access, Apache1 or 2? Also do most people enable Paypal IPN and how hard is it to set up? The research I did was a little old but seemed difficult. Has that changed any  that you know of to make it easier to set up?   Thanks Again!

The options that you mentioned (Premium Restore Service, SSH/shell access, Apache 2) can be requested once the account has been setup and activated, if the server where you are hosted does not already support them.  When using Paypal as the payment method, it may take a little longer to get the account activated.  It can take a few days to receive and process the payment.  Credit card orders seem to process the quickest.

Hope this helps.

SSH/shell access

Last time I heard, this was still only available in VPS or dedicated hosting. Has something changed?

Yep, it is now added to the Basic/Business hosting plans as an addon feature.  It will give you access to SSH/shell, but will require a server move.
