Getting Started With Your Free Hosting Platform

<b>Get started with your new free hosting account
easily with...</b>
The Getting Started Guide
<b>What to do first?</b>
Create Your Free Hosting Account At

Your free account allows you to make a website
three ways, with HTML, more advanced PHP or
the SiteBuilder method for those really getting
First you need to decide how you will make your
site, will it be static HTML or dynamic PHP? If
you are just getting started for the first time ever
we recommend starting with basic static HTML
So, starting with basic HTML? Good, here is
Making a basic HTML webpage
HTML (HyperText Markup Language) is the code
of a website, it gives it the basic framework of
how it will look, what goes where and how it is
displayed. If you are not familiar with HTML
coding you can use a web design editor
(WYSIWYG) such as Microsoft Frontpage /
Expression Web, Dreamweaver or many others to
design your site much like writing a document in
Microsoft Word..
Even if you intend on using a web editor like
Frontpage it is best to familiarize yourself with
the coding by completing a tutorial or two
Tutorial Site 1
Tutorial Site 2
Tutorial Site 3
Tutorial Site 4
<b>Finding a Web Editor</b>
There are many, many web editor program
available free, open source and commercial
included and you can use any one of them with
your free hosting account..
Here are a few we recommend, some free and
some trial based:
Adobe Dreamweaver
Coffee Cup
WebPlus 6
<b>Forget HTML, I want PHP!</b>
Creating a PHP website is really quite easy,
especially if you already know PHP coding but if
not and you want to learn, please review the
following tutorials.:
PHP / MySQL Tutorial 1
PHP / MySQL Tutorial 2
PHP / MySQL Tutorial 3
PHP / MySQL Tutorial 4
<b>What about forums, galleries, blogs or CMS?</b>
All of these are popular types of PHP scripts or
applications which can be installed into your free
hosting website with relative ease rather than
making you write your own..
You can download the script from the developer
site and upload the required files into your free
hosting account or, alternatively, you can use our
iVista script installer to install many common
scripts automatically.
There are four basic steps to setting up such
<b>Step 1 - Uploading the files</b>
The script cannot run unless its files and
associated directories are uploaded into the
HTDOCS folder of your website which can be
done via FTP Client or the Online File Manager.
Always remember, uploads go into the HTDOCS
folder, never anywhere else.
If you prefer to use the iVista tool to install the
script select, iVista in your website control panel,
choose the location and where you want it
installed, if you want the script to be the first
thing seen leave it as is otherwise change it.
Finally, select the script you wish to install and
The script will then be installed in your HTDOCS
folder where you selected it to be and you should
now have the user account to login and get
started with the script.:
<b>Step 2 - Creating a MySQL database</b>
99% of PHP scripts require a MySQL database,
use your MySQL database manager to create a
MySQL database and take careful note of the
database name .
You will be asked for your MySQL database
name at the final stage next..
<b>Step 3 - Script Configuration</b>
Now that you have uploaded the files and you
have the database, you need to run through the
script installation routine by browsing to the
install/uploaded location and locating the
installation page.
This location/page can vary between scripts so it
is best to refer to the documentation that came
with the script or the developer installation
materials on their website!
In many cases simply visiting the installation
location will direct you to the installation page
which allows you to continue setup however if
not, again refer to the documentation/official site
of the script. Below are some common locations:
http://your website
http://your website
http://yourwebsite. com/installation
If you cannot locate the installation page and you
have verified its supposed location using the
script help documentation please verify the
upload was successful using the Online File
Manager to find all the associated files and that
they are intact and accounted for including
directory names and file names. In many cases
you may also find the installation location via
this method such as a sub-directory, if this is the
case simply adjust your URL accordingly and
browse there.
<b>Uploading via FTP</b>
Your website and all its associated files should
always be uploaded into the HTDOCS folder in
order to be viewed in a web browser. If you have
an add-on domain or sub-domain, you will find
folders with the name of those sub-domains or
domains in your root directory, opening them will
display a HTDOCS folder for that location.
Remember, once you are connected you may
have to open the HTDOCS folder prior to
uploading so always verify you are in the correct
location prior to uploading.
FTP Clients in need three things to connect to
the service as outlined below.
If you are in need of a FTP Client Free & Trial
FTP Software
<b>Making FTP Clients Work</b>
You will need the following three pieces of
information to connect to your account via FTP
FTP Username : : : Example b9_194802
FTP Password : (Same as your Current
vistaPanel Password)
FTP Hostname or Server:
