How-To: Access Client Area (cPanel) directly

Here's a handy little shortcut: instead of going to our website and clicking Client Area every time you want to access the Client Area (cPanel), simply add /cpanel to the end of your domain, and you'll be greeted by the familiar login screen! For example: www.yourdomain.com/cpanel

This works for webmail as well. Simply add /webmail to the end of your domain. Example: www.yourdomain.com/webmail

How-To: Upload your website using an FTP client

In this how-to, we are using Flow, our favourite FTP client, but you can use virtually any FTP client you wish. The settings will remain the same.

In your FTP client, please use the following settings:

Protocol: FTP
Server: ftp.dvhost.com
Username: Your account username, which you will find in your welcome email
Password: Your account password
Path: public_html

Once you have entered these settings, click Connect. You should now be able to drag and drop files and folders to upload them.

How-To: Addon Domains (Pro accounts only)

For this how-to, we'll assume that your primary domain hosted with us is called www.maindomain.com, and you want to host an additional domain called www.addon.com.

First, you need to add your addon domain:
Login to the Client Area (cPanel).
2. Click on "Addon Domains", which you will find under the "Domains" heading.
Addon Domains

3. You'll see a form named "Create an Addon Domain". The only fields you need to fill out are "New Domain Name" and "Password". Also note the username that is generated, as you'll need it later for the publishing setting.

Next, configure your Publishing Settings in RapidWeaver:
Go to the File menu and select "Publishing Settings" and use the following settings:
Server: rw.dvhost.com
User Name: [email protected] (this is made up of the username that was generated when you added the addon domain, followed by @ and your primary domain name. If you do have any problems, please contact our support team.
Password: The password you chose
Path: /
Addon Domain 3

2. Click Test Connection to make sure your settings are correct.
3. Save your settings by clicking OK. That's it, you are ready to publish.

Tip: One great feature of addon domains is that each addon domain has its own unique login information, which is firewalled from the rest of your account. That means you can safely hand it out to clients.
