Are U Hosted ~ Solutions . . . Common Support Questions

I just ordered a design package with you. I cannot access my website using the domain name. Why?

If you have ordered a design package along with a new domain name registration request, it'll take 24-48 hours for the domain name to propagate through the Internet. Once, the domain name has been propagated you will be able to access your website using domain name.

If you already have a domain name registered, we will need to initiate a domain name transfer to Are U Hosted name server. We will need to contact the registrar of your domain name and change the name server information to Are U Hosted name servers.

I'm able to access the Control panel with the username and password, but unable to access my website using the same username and password using FrontPage. Why?

By default, the username and password to access the Control panel and FrontPage are same. But, if you change the password for the Control Panel, the FrontPage password will not change. You need to use the old password to access your website using FrontPage. Once, you have opened your website in FrontPage, you can change the password.

I'm able to receive the mails, but not able to send. Why?

If you are using your ISP as Bigpond,Optus, etc, then you will need to change your port to Port 26 as these do not offer dedicated IP addresses for their customers and this causes configuration problems as you are sharing an IP with many others.

Why aren't my images showing up on my website?

Make sure that the images are uploaded inside the correct folder. You will see a separate "images" folder inside your hosting space. You need to upload the images to that folder.

Please make sure that URL that you provide for calling the image in the browser is specified properly in the file from where you are calling the image. For example if you have a image "photo.gif" which is uploaded in the "images" folder and the file that you're calling this image is "photo.html" (which is in side the “www’ folder), the path to call that image should be as follows:

img src="/images/photo.gif" (you need to provide the exact path for the image that you're calling).

Please make sure that the image is also uploaded properly. Sometime, when you right click on the broken image, and click on the properties, you have the file size as -1. In this case, you need to re-upload the image. Also, there are possibilities that you have created the link to call the image, but the image is not at all uploaded.
