Why does my website show Account Suspended?

This message will appear if you’re account had been suspended due to a verification needed, non-payment, or if your account has been flagged for abuse, or violated our Acceptable Use Policy. When the accounts have been inactivated, an email should have been sent to your default email address on the account, explaining the inactivation. If you have any questions about why the account has been inactivated or if you require assistance with resolving the issue, you can contact us at any time at (888) 504-4678

Why is my website suspended if I paid just before the due date?

If you have paid your bill, but you are receiving the “Account Suspended” page for your website, there may be a few possibilities.

  1. The card was added into your backroom account, but you did not select “Process Payment”
  2. The payment has not yet been updated in our system
  3. The payment information was wrong or had conflicting information

After checking these, please contact our Customer Service or Technical Support team at (888)504-4678 and we will be more than happy to assist you in getting your account back online!

 

Why was there an extra fee on my monthly Bill?

If we at NetHosting are providing with you services where we bill you on a monthly basis, the amount should usually stay at a consistent level. However, there may be some services that are billed on an annual basis, such as for renewing the registration of your domain names. If we provided services at an hourly billable rate we will add that to your bill in addition to your monthly fees.

Please contact us at NetHosting Customer Service and we would be glad to review an itemized breakdown of your billing with you.

I'm getting billed every month, who are you and what do we do for you?

cPanel

How do I login to cPanel?

To log into cPanel, type any of the following URLs into your Address bar:

(replace “mydomain.com” with your domain)

  • www.mydomain.com/cpanel
  • www.mydomain.com:2083
  • servername/cpanel *
  • servername:2083 *
  • serverip/cpanel *
  • serverip:2083 *

 

*Your server IP and server name will be included in the welcome letter you received when you opened your account, if you do not have this, our support team can provide it to you.

How can I use Google Mail to host email for my domain?

Your cPanel hosting account comes included with email services, so you could create mailboxes for any of the domains you are using. You also have the option of using the email features of Google Apps for your domain names. First, you need to create a Google Apps for Business account and associate it with your domain name.

Google has a site to help you get started: http://www.google.com/enterprise/apps/business/

Be sure to update your DNS settings so that the MX records will now point to the google mail servers.

Next, in your cPanel account, navigate to the Mail section and open the MX Entry app. Since you will now be using an external mail server for the domain, be sure to set Email Routing to Remote Mail Exchanger, click Change, then proceed to enter the required MX entries for google mail. Now, when you send email from your cPanel account, it will route out to Google Mail instead of being delivered to your cPanel mailboxes.

How do I set up a redirect for my site?

If you are hosting your website with us, it is actually very easy to set up a redirect.

The first step is to login to your cPanel account. Navigate to the Domains section and open the Redirects app. In the drop-down menu, find the domain/site you want to redirect. In the spot that says ‘redirects to’, you will put the full, literal URL for the website you want it to redirect to. For example, you will select mydomain.com in the drop-down menu and then enter http://www.example.com in the ‘redirects to’ space. It is generally better to use the ‘Redirect with or without www.’ option.

Once everything is entered correctly, click on ‘Add’ just under that.

How do I Upload and Download Files for my website?

Log in to your cPanel.

  1. Click on “file manager”
  2. Click the public_html folder or appropriate folder for the file
  3. To upload, click upload in the upper left of the screen
  4. To download, click download in the upper left of the screen

You can also use FTP (File Transfer Protocol) to upload and download files to your website if you have software to do so, such as FileZilla. All you need to use FTP is the server’s IP address, and your Cpanel username and password.

Why can’t I load my website?

Does the website time out when you try to connect?

  • Your IP may be blocked. This can be caused by a number of different scenarios. It is a security precaution to protect your website files as well as the integrity of our servers.  To remove the block, simply go to ipchicken.com to get your current IP address. Copy this down and contact our Support Team to have the block removed. You can contact our Support Team at (888) 534-4678.

Are you getting an Account Suspended or the NetHosting Splash Page when you go to your website?

  • This is usually caused by an unresolved billing issue. To check your billing status, you can log in to your Nethosting.com account, then select the “Billing” tab. If you are unable to access your billing account online, feel free to contact our Support Team for assistance. You can contact them at (888) 534-4678.

Are you getting a 404, 500 or similar message when loading the page?

  • There may be a misconfigured file or setting in your website files. You will want to contact a web developer to fix the issue. Or contact our Support Team at (888) 534-4678 for more information.
Why can’t I log into HWS editing?

If you are a former Heritage/HIT Web Design customer, you may notice that your HWS login and other tools may no longer work. Unfortunately, since Heritage Web Design has gone out of business there has been no way to keep the tools and services they offered up to date. Fortunately, you can still log into your account and make changes by going to your cPanel. You can access cPanel by typing your domain name, followed by “/cpanel” (example: www.mydomain.com/cpanel).

Once the log in page has come up, you can use your Heritage login information to gain access. If you have any questions about the tools available with cPanel or are unable to login, you can contact our customer service or technical support team, and they will be able to assist you further.

Why does my website show “Page Under Construction”?

Occasionally you will see this page when your account is being migrated to another server. This should be removed once the process has been completed. If you believe this is not the case, you can log into your cPanel account and delete the ‘index.html’ file. You may also contact our support team ( 1-866-223-9576 ) and we can take care of it for you. For your specific circumstances we will be able to determine and explain why the message is appearing on your website.

Why is My IP Address Being Blocked?

In order to maintain security of our servers and your website files, our servers will block IP’s that are behaving suspiciously. This behavior can include, but is not limited to, failed cPanel logins, invalid email credentials, failed FTP access, and failed SSH access.

If we were to allow all IP’s to go through it would cause a major security threat. Unfortunately, it is hard for us to tell what IP addresses are safe and which ones are not as a good number of blocked IPs trying to connect can be computers trying to illegally gain access to users accounts and stored information.

If you find your IP is being blocked frequently, you can try the following steps to try fix the issue:

  • Verify that your passwords are correct; this includes email on your cell phone and PC
  • If your email client is connecting via POP3, limit the software on how many times it can connect to the server per minute
  • Try setting your email clients connection protocol to IMAP instead of POP3
  • If you fail your cPanel/Webmail log in 3 times in a row, wait ten minutes before attempting again
  • If you frequently fail your cPanel password, try logging into cPanel through your NetHosting account for a direct log in
  • Keep your PC malware and virus free by running a scan at least once a month

Note: If the above steps do not work, please contact our support ( 1-888-534-4678 ) to look into what other options may be available to you.

How can I recognize scam emails?

Recognizing malicious email can sometimes be tricky, however, there are a few things that can help. First, consider whether you are expecting email alerts from any of your online services, then look at the content of the email and check whether it is suggesting that you click on a link to access your account.

The common tactic is to trick you into loading a faked website and entering your real account credentials (Phishing attack). If that link looks a little odd,  the name of the company is slightly misspelt, or it does not include https(secured data transmission) in the url, it should be considered suspicious.

You can go deeper into the evidence by opening the email displaying full header information. You will be able to spot whether the sender’s address has been renamed or spoofed. You can determine the actual email address and IP address of the sender, and if they do not match with the company’s real, legitimate sender information, it is intended to scam you in some way.

Be sure not to click on any links, open any attachments, or forward it to anyone else.

 

How can I clear out old emails in my mailbox?

Horde Mail: http://www.horde.org/apps/webmail

RoundCube: http://roundcube.net/

What Should I Do If My Email Account Has Been Compromised?

Domains

How can I transfer my domain from/to NetHosting?

Please contact us at 88-504-4678 24/7 about performing a domain transfer. You may want to move control from another registrar to NetHosting to help consolidate your services with us, or you may want to move your domain away to another registrar. One of the first steps will be to produce an EPP Code from your registrar, which will give your authorization to initiate the transfer. We will be glad to help initiate the process and guide you through the necessary steps.

My domain name is expired. How do I renew it?

When you register a website address (a domain name) you sign up for an account with a registrar and you pay a fee, usually covering one to three years. When that registration time passes you will need to pay a fee again to register that domain name. If you let the time pass without paying the fee the domain name will expire and will be unusable. The registrar may even put the domain name up for sale again and someone else may register it. To avoid losing your domain name it is a good idea to keep current on the billing.

In case your domain name does expire, contact your registrar in order to access your account. If you don’t know the registrar, perform a whois look up on the domain name. A good online tool to use it http://network-tools.com

Here is an example of what you will see:

http://network-tools.com/default.asp?prog=whois&host=nethosting.com

Whois query for nethosting.comDomain Name: NETHOSTING.COM
Registrar: ENOM, INC.

In this example, the domain name is nethosting.com and the registrar is ENOM, INC.

WHM (Web Hosting Manager)

What is WHM (Web Host Manager)?

Web Host Manager, or WHM, is a powerful program that allows administrative access to the back end of cPanel. Dedicated Servers and VPS accounts get root WHM (also called rWHM), which has features that require root access to the server enabled.

WordPress

How can I reset my WordPress password?

WordPress is a common CMS (content management) web application that you can use to host your website or blog.

When you first install WordPress, you create your own username and password. NetHosting does not record that information as all credentials are immediately encrypted into WordPress.

If you find yourself locked out, the best first step is to try the “Lost your password?” link on your WordPress login page (usually at http://<yourdomain.com>/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword). This will send a message to the email address you provided during setup and it will include a link you can click to reset the password.

At NetHosting we cannot provide the password for you since it is stored as an encrypted string. We may be able to change the email address used to deliver the message for resetting the password, but we will require authorization from the Primary contact on your account.

 

If you have further questions please contact us at 888-504-4678 24/7.

How do I add a PHP.ini File?

By editing or adding a php.ini file to the main public_html and adding the settings you need, you will overwrite the server’s php.ini settings.

max_execution_time = 30 ; Maximum execution time of each script, in seconds
max_input_time = 60 ; Maximum amount of time each script may spend parsing request data
max_input_vars = 1000
memory_limit = 64M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (32MB)

You may receive a message such as “Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded” or “Maximum execution time of 60 seconds exceeded”. This means that it is taking to longer for a process to complete and it is timing out. There are a number of ways to fix this error.

Editing .htaccess

Make sure you backup .htaccess before you edit it.

Add the following line to .htaccess:

php_value max_execution_time 60

Editing php.ini

Add the following to php.ini

max_execution_time = 60
An Allowed Memory Size Exhausted error means that your WordPress installation doesn’t have enough memory to achieve what you want. You can try out the following steps:

Editing php.ini

Add the following to php.ini

memory_limit = 128M

If you need more than that amount space then try to add more to the limit.
