LINK YOUR DOMAIN NAME TO YOUR HOSTING PLAN

PLEASE NOTE: You need to finish this step in order for your email service/website to be visible on the internet. It may anywhere from 24 to 48 hours from completing this step for your service to become active.
Any services you have with another provider will no longer be visible on the internet once this step is completed - however, the service will still be 'active' on the other provider, in that it will continue to be billed. You will need to contact your former provider to cancel this.

To link your domain name to your hosting plan, you will need to delegate the name to the following servers below (if your domain name is not hosted with Melbourne IT, you will need to contact your Registrar to arrange this).

HOST NAMEIP ADDRESS
Primary:ns32b.ssggrp-wc.com(Please leave this empty)
Secondary:ns32a.ssggrp-wc.com(Please leave this empty)

 Note: If you are using our Cloud / cPanel plans please refer to 'The Console' category.

For instructions on how to delegate your domain name using Melbourne IT, see this article - How do I change the nameservers on my domain (redelegate)?

ADDITIONAL INFO

If you're using a shared computer and don't have Outlook, you can easily check your email by visiting Webmail. This URL is typically in the format of http://webmail.yourdomainname/webmail

We recommend that you do not store large amounts of mail in Webmail. This could potentially cause corruption and a possible loss of information.

We also recommend you keep a local copy of your website at all times for backup purposes.
