To begin, use the form above to Create a NEW Name to be registered on the internet for the Application, such as hotrockhosting or hot-rock-hosting. It may take a little time to find a .com name not already in use. Once you have found an unregistered name, check to accept and register the name to continue. The next step will attach a Hosting Account to the domain name and ask if you wish to hide registration information or purchase an SSL for merchant services.
After you have registered an Annual Domain Name and a monthly Hosting Account go to the email account used during Hot Rock Hosting registration, find the emails received from Hot Rock Hosting and review. There will be multiple emails for Domain Registration, Web Hosting Registration as well as a welcome message and any and all Invoice payment receipts from Hot Rock Hosting.
There will be 3 areas to access: SSL Client Panel, SSL Control Panel [Control Panel Demo], Application Administration panel [WordPress Administration Dashboard Demo].
The SSL Secured Client Panel controls current owner information such as, Owner Details, Hosting and Domain Packages ordered, billing and Technical Support Tickets, Invoicing as well as access to the Secured Control Panel.
The SSL Secured Control Panel offers a variety of programs and services to run most any dynamic application. The Secured Control Panel manages Domain Email Accounts, File Management (manage php dynamic or html static files) contains the quick launch program allowing software to be installed and activated such as WP, Joomla, PHP Bulletin Board, Elgg Social Networking and Drupal to name a few.
The Application Administration Panel will allow management of the WordPress, Android App, Webinar or Mobile Application. In WordPress one can easily and instantly build pages, upload and manage media such as audio, videos and images. Connect with Facebook, twitter, Pinterest, Google and all the other social outlets. Manage and Sell Products with your merchant account and/or Paypal, or Run a Photo Gallery. The full Power of CMS Applications are all in your Control.
All emails will be sent to the owner, including Application login allowing the owner to login to the back-end of the WP Application Software. Most all dynamic frameworks offer an Administrator log-in including Joomla, PHP Bulletin Board and Drupal. WordPress login is usually located at /wp-admin or /wp-login.php. Joomla is /index.php?option=com_users&view=login. Drupal is /user. Use the login information created during the setup. Most of the time the username will be admin.
Once logged into backend Application Administration Panel, creating a front-end Application (Public Website View) will be effortless. For instance in WordPress. Create a Home page simply by selecting on the left hand menu “Add New Page”. Enter the subject of the article, click on the editor toolbar above the paragraph and add any pictures and or video to the page, then Publish. People will now be able to go to the WP Website Home page and see what has been published and comment on article if commenting has been enabled by you in the settings section.
