How To: Request Hosting

Postby Max » Fri Jul 31, 2009 4:03 am

Instructions
Please read these instructions very carefully. Take the following steps to request hosting:
  1. Read the Free Hosting Packs thread and all information contained within.
  2. Look at the template below for a hosting request, and understand what information you need to convey to us.
  3. Read the list just below this one, which tells you limitations on the things you can request.
  4. Make a new thread in this forum, use the template (copy-paste), and change all the template information in bold to the values you desire.
  5. If you are requesting any pack bigger than pack 1, you need to provide a reason why you need those extra resources
  6. There are examples of what an application should look like down the bottom, so check them out for good measure before posting yours.
Failure to follow these steps exactly will result in the delay of your request.

Things you need to know:
  • You must state at least your real first name.
  • Usernames must be between 3 and 8 characters in length, inclusive, and they must be alphanumeric (letters and numbers only).
  • A password will be automatically generated, and PMed to you.
  • Provide us your real, working email address. Important notifications about outages and planned maintenance may be sent to it, so get it right!
  • Please type your email address in the template format, unless you want to receive lots of spam from spambots which lurk forums, looking for public emails.
  • You have a choice of using either a Liway subdomain or your own domain for your hosting account.
  • Liway provides subdomains with .com, .net and .info extensions (ie. yourname.liway.net).
  • If you choose to use your own domain, it is your responsibility to register it (if you do not own it already) and point it to our nameservers. We do not provide free top-level domains.
  • Usernames and subdomains cannot begin with a number
