Because we do understand that the ordering process might be overwhelming for some just starting out on the online world, we put together this short overview on getting started with your XMS Systems website. At the end you will have your hosting, domain name, XMS Systems based website and payment method setup and ready to go.
Once you click the “Complete Order” button you will be redirected to the payment gateway to complete your payment as required. We suggest you create a PayPal subscription to take care of your monthly payments.
Once payment is cleared by PayPal and Exelwebs notified of the payment, you will receive a number of emails. Make sure to save the somewhere for future reference.
Your hosting account will be configured automatically.
If you ordered a new domain, the domain will be registered and configured.
If you decided to update your own nameservers, you will need to do so with the information given to your in one of the emails you will receive.
Due to the way the internet works, a period of up to 48 hours will be required after domain registration or nameserver changes. This is known as “NS Propagation” and simply means the whole of the internet needs to be “told” of the new domain and where to find the related website.
What happens next?
Once the domain name is registered and the NS propagation complete, we will start with configuring your website. You will be required to supply a logo that can be used in png format with preferably a transparent background. We could attempt to trace/recreate your current logo if you do not have a clear copy available.
If you have no logo, we will create one for you, We are not professional graphic designers but will do our best.
You will also be required to have an idea of the colour schemes you want to use. Supply images and content for the website.
We will initially assist you with populating the website and you can take over from there. We will from time to time look at the site and make sure you not getting things to messed up. ;-)
If anything is unclear, please do not hesitate to contact us for guidance and to answer any questions you might have.
