General Set Up

By now, you should receive an email from us regarding your account and other instructions on how to set up your account.

First, you need to transfer your domain to our server.

After doing so, you can login to your control panel at http://yourdomain.com/cpanel/

Please use our address http://ogc-host.com/cpanel/ until your domain registration/modification is complete, which would take around 24-48 hours.

With username and password you assigned when you placed your order, you'd be able login to your CPanel to manage your account. ATTENTION: The password is CaSe SenSiTiVe , so you will need to enter it exactly as it appears. This can be changed from the Control Panel by clicking the "change password" icon.

When you first log into your account, you will see various hidden files and directories, among them, the two that are most important are the public_html and public_ftp directories.

public_ftp

public_html

DO NOT DELETE OR RENAME any of these directories or any hidden files that you may find. These directories are automatically setup by the system and are required in order for your account to function. Deleting or renaming any of them will cause fatal errors that can only be repaired by deleting and resetting your account.

Of these directories, the ONLY ONE that is important to you is the public_html directory. This is the directory where you will upload your web pages and create other subdirectories that will pertain to your web site and be viewable from your web browser. Your pages WILL NOT be viewable on a web browser unless they are uploaded to this directory.

When you initially enter your public_html directory, you will see one directory, which is your cgi-bin, and one html file, which is the placeholder page created by the system when your account is created.

The CGI-BIN is where you upload your cgi scripts. DO NOT DELETE OR RENAME your cgi-bin.

As you add features from your Control Panel, the system will automatically create other directories within this area. ANY AND ALL sub-directories and/or files created by the system SHOULD NOT BE DELETED OR ALTERED IN ANY WAY.
