DNS (Domain Naming System) Setup

To create a web site, you must first register a domain with a registrar like namecheap.com

Enter the following name servers in your registrar’s DNS manager:

ns1.glyphdataservices.com
ns2.glyphdataservices.com

*** Make sure these are the only name servers listed ***

There is no need to sign up for their web hosting or email service. You may however want to add the privacy service to keep your contact info private.

Domain registration costs around $10/year USD

File transfer using SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol)

SFTP is used to transfer web site files to the server. Site files (html, php, images, etc) must be uploaded to the server before they can be seen on the Web.

Use the following information to set up your SFTP client (such as Aptana, Putty for Windows, FileZilla, or a Linux shell)

Regular FTP is not supported
