This is changed where you register your domain name. If you registered a domain name with us, we will automatically add these for you. If you transferred a domain name to us, you will still need to update the name servers once it's complete.
Building a website can seem difficult, that is why we created an easy to understand page to describe exactly how most websites are made and how to do it. Don't worry this is not some long boring document. It's an easy to look through list of options and how to use the one you like best.

Web Host Pro is not a moral filter for content. We are not equipped to pass judgment on a client's content. Therefore Web Host Pro does allow adult content. Web Host Pro does reserve the right to refuse service to anyone on the grounds of abuse of service or illegal activity. If you have questionable content feel free to ask our staff about it. Otherwise, data will be considered data. Our job is to get the packets through to you, not scrutinize them. We request the use of meta tags to distinguish adult content from general content but we do not force than in anyway.
Here is the proper meta tag and variables. Replace the term value with the type of content your website uses. For example adult sites would use the tag: <meta name="rating" content="mature">
<meta name="rating" content="value">
Not at all, just leave it where it is already registered and point the name servers to us.
Our name servers are:
This happens when we upgrade clouds and in some cases a dedicated IP or an account is not synced yet.
The fix is easy though, just add a /cpanel after your domain.
For example if your domain name is: your-main-domain.com You can access cPanel directly with this address in your browser: your-main-domain.com/cpanel/
You can also do this for your web host manager: your-main-domain.com/whm/ and webmail your-main-domain.com/webmail/
There are a number of reasons that your PHP files may not be working properly. Here is the top ones and how to fix them
1. Wrong PHP version
The main reason PHP files do not work is that your are not on a compatible PHP version. In your cPanel, search for MultiPHP. There, you can change versions to see if any work with your website. The newer the version, the better the security and performance. Some apps require older PHP versions to work or the app just needs to be updated. Once you change a PHP version, you will have to wait about 2 minutes for it to start working.
2. Misconfigured .htaccess file
This is a little harder to trouble shoot. You'll need to remove everything from all .htaccess files in folders before your content. Normally there is only one .htaccess file you have to change. This is normally located in the main public_html folder. Once everything is removed and your site is working, you can add code back to the .htaccess file piece by piece to see what is causing the error. In some cases you'll have to add some code back for it to work as well.
3. A bad app
Sometimes the app you are using just has bad code or has broken. In this case you'll need to get a new version and upload all the files over the existing ones. Just don't forget to save your database and configuration settings.
A control panel is where you manage most tasks that your website needs. For example adding email, checking visitor details, and viewing files can all be done from your Control Panel otherwise known as cPanel. The account manager is where you handle billing, support tickets, buying new products, and things of that nature.
A web host is a place where you store the files (information) of your web site so that it may be accessed by anyone with an Internet connection. This is often a computer with storage space and a permanent connection to the Internet. Your website will not work on a computer unless it is permanently connected to the Internet for all to see. I like to describe it as a piece of property where you can build your house on the Internet.
