So what do you do?
First register your domain name (URL) we recommend 123-reg, see the link below, .co.uk domains work out at only £2.99 a year only register the domain with them, do NOT take any of the extras of webhosting etc. Please give this a bit of thought, think on it overnight make sure it’s the name that is right for you.
After doing so, logon to your 123-reg control panel, select manage domain, then change nameservers, change to the following:
Nameserver 1: ns.heartinternet.co.uk
Nameserver 2: ns2.heartinternet.co.uk
and click the change nameservers button.
Next email us, you know the email address I’m not putting it here as I get enough spam daily! Put “Gothic Hosting” in the email subject and in the body please include your domain name, your name, and the original email address you used when subscribing to Gothic Dropshipping.
Then we’ll set up your hosting account for you, takes about 24-48 hours for your nameserver change to be fully active, then you should be able to login to your GD hosting account and easily install Zen Cart just click on the button for it in your control panel then answer some simple questions there’s a tutorial here http://tutorials.zen-cart.com/index.php?article=107 you really only need to read from “Starting the Installer” onwards (about half way down the page).
If not familiar with what modules and extras you need to install ask on the forum and there’s always someone will offer you advice. That’s you set up with free hosting for the life of your Gothic Dropshipping membership for the cost of your domain name registration with 123-Reg of £2.99 a year you can start selling online.
