  2. How soon will my account be set up and ready for use?
    Account orders are placed in a queue and are processed in the order in which they are received. Your site can be uploaded to our servers immediately after receiving the welcome e-mail, which will contain the IP address for your account, as well as the username and password required to access the account. In fact, we recommend that clients start uploading their site as soon as possible after setup is complete, so that once the domain transfer is completed, the site will be available for use by your visitors.

  3. Do I have access to update my site 24 hours a day?
    Absolutely. Whether you're a day person or a night owl, your site is available for you to update and manage.

  4. Can you register a domain name for me? Can you set up domains other than .com, .org, and .net?
    We can register .com, .org, and .net names for $12.95 per year, with you as the registrant. We can assist with registering other domains as well. [Back to top]

  5. Do you offer a money back guarantee?
    Yes. If for any reason during the first 30 days as a ChurchAssist Hosting customer, you are not completely satisfied with any of our services, we will cancel your account and refund your money for that month's service. (Domain registration fees are not refundable, however, the registration belongs to you do with as you like.)

  6. I see some hosts offering "unlimited bandwidth." Why don't you offer this?
    Technically speaking, there is no such thing as "unlimited bandwidth." Someone has to pay for the traffic somewhere - and if you check the fine print of some service agreements from companies who claim to offer unlimited bandwidth, you'll probably find that they do charge for traffic over a certain amount. We dispense with the fine print.

  7. Do you host adult sites, warez sites or sites containing illegal material?
    Absolutely not. Please see our Acceptable Use Policy for policies regarding this.

  9. How fast are your connections?
    Our servers are located at Peak10 network operations center in Jacksonville, Florida. The network is monitored around the clock. Peak10's fully redundant, multihomed network is particularly suited for high availability hosting.

Technical Questions
  1. I changed my control panel password and now I can't get in.
    Passwords are case-sensitive and are limited to 8 characters. If you entered a password longer than 8 characters please try entering the first 8 characters when logging into your control panel.

  2. How do I get my e-mail?
    If you're familiar with your e-mail client's setup, use the following information to retrieve e-mail from your POP account:
    Incoming mail (POP3) server: yourdomain.com
    Outgoing mail (SMTP) server: yourdomain.com

  3. I want to get started right away, but my domain name hasn't transferred or hasn't resolved to your servers. How do I do it?
    You can upload your page(s) immediately by pointing your FTP client to the IP address you were assigned when you opened your account. After your domain is fully propagated through the system, you can upload to ftp.yourdomain.com.

  4. Do you have a secure certificate that I can use?
    Yes, or you can use your own. Please contact us for instructions on using the server wide secure certificate.

  5. What is the path to perl?
    #!/usr/local/bin/perl

  6. Where should I put CGI scripts for my domain?
    All CGI scripts should be uploaded to the cgi-bin folder located under the www folder for your domain. Be sure to follow the instructions for the script you are uploading regarding setting permissions on the files and folders you create, as they vary from script to script.

  7. I uploaded my files, but I don't see my page?
    If our default index.html page has not been replaced by another index page, then anyone going to domainname.com will still see that page instead of some other home page. This is the order in which the web server looks for a page to put up as the "home" page: default.htm, index.phtml, index.pht, index.cgi, index.shtml, index.html, welcome.cgi, welcome.html, index.htm. Just delete the index.hmtl file and anything after it in this list will then come up automatically. Notice that "home.html" is NOT on the list and so will not show up as your home page. You would need to rename it.

    If you exceed the bandwidth limit for your account the overage amount will be automatically billed at a rate of $1 per gigabyte per month.

  4. What is the cost for additional features?
    You can add additional features to the plan for which you signed up. Please see our hosting plans for more details.

    You can cancel your account at any time by contacting our sales department. There are no cancellation fees and no notice is required. Any fees paid to that point (unless cancellation is made within 30 days of opening the account) are non-refundable. Please see our Acceptable Use Policy for further information.
