How to launch ASAP

Root Folder > Action Control Panel (ACP)

ASAP is now fully integrated into ACP.  You no longer need to goto WSI MAPS to manage your ASAP sites.

Here are steps on how you can launch ASAP site.

1. CREATE A HOSTING PLAN – From Home, click on Packages > Add New > select "ASAP Plan" from the drop down list and enter the domain name as the "Package Name" > Save.

2. MANAGE CREDIT CARD (Skip this step If you already have a credit card added) – From Home, click on Billing > Manage Credit Cards > Add New and enter your credit card information. This area is over a secured SSL connection.

3. MAKE PAYMENT – From Home, click on Billing > Make Payment > ensure the amount is correct > Next. Be careful not to click twice. Once the payment has gone through successfully, do NOT click “NEXT” again.

4. ADD DOMAIN – From Home, click on Domains > Add New > select the package you purchased from the drop down list > enter the domain name exactly as it was registered (Action Hosting is NOT responsible for domain name registration) > Save.
At this point, please be patient while the Control Panel creates your domain and all appropriate configurations. By default, each site launch will automatically have a standard Coming Soon Flash page called “_holding.htm” which will load as the home page until a website is uploaded.

5. LAUNCH ASAP SITE - From Home, click on Domains > click the domain you just launched > ASAP LAUNCH > LAUNCH.  A new link will appear.  This is a direct link to your ASAP Site Builder.  You can copy the Short Cut and provide to your client so that they can manage their own site without accessing your ACP.

6. If the site is currently live elsewhere and has ACTIVE EMAIL accounts, you should create ALL of the same accounts with Action Hosting through the Control Panel. This ensures that once DNS is pointing to Action Hosting, email will properly be received.
(Domains > click on the domain to add email accounts > Email Accounts > Add New)

7. If the site is working correctly, you can change the name server information with your registrar. Please request that the following name servers be set (in listed order) with your registrar. This will direct all web and email traffic to Action Hosting.
- ns1.actionhosting.ca [204.92.104.120]
- ns1.wsiactionhosting.com [208.72.208.115]
