Set up my Linux Hosting account

< All Topics

After you purchase a Linux Hosting plan, you need to set it up before you can use it to host your website. Warning: Setting up an account changes a domain’s DNS records, so an existing website and email addresses might stop working. For help finding the best path, on our Contact Us page click Chat Now to reach out to a Adaptive Web Hosting Guide 24/7.
