Element Website Creation Instructions

Congratulations, you are on your way to marketing on the web with the greatest of ease! Just follow the instructions below to get your first website up and running in no time.

Step One:

Domain Registration & Modification

The first thing you must do is change where your registered domain name is pointing to. What does that mean? Well lets walk you through it. You registered your domain name (Example: www.google.com, www.yahoo.com, etc) with a domain registrar such as GoDaddy.com, register.com, etc. If you haven't done that yet, then you need to. It's fairly easy, just go to www.godaddy.com, www.register.com or any other registrar of your choice and then search for an available domain name. Once you find one, you will need to register it with them.

Once you have registered your domain name you will need to change your domain's Name Servers to point to Element's Name Servers. You will need to set your first Name Server to point to DNS1.MSSITEHOST.COM and your second Name Server to point to DNS2.MSSITEHOST.COM. When we contact you for billing information, we will ask you for the domain name you have registered in order for us to add that domain name to our Name Servers.

f you have any trouble registering a domain name or changing your Name Servers, please don't hesitate to contact us via email at support@mssitehost.com or via phone at (214) 785-HOST (4678)(8:00AM - 11:00PM CST 7 days a week).

That is the most difficult step in the whole process but we can't avoid it. Once that is completed, you are now in our capable hands and we make this web world easier... that's our job and purpose.
