First of all, we would like to thank you for choosing Unique Sites™ for your online presence. We appreciate your business and look forward to helping you every step of the way with getting your website online.

Step 1: Secure your domain name

If you haven’t done so already, you will need to register your domain name through a domain name registrar. There are a ton of registrar’s and each one has it’s pro’s and con’s so we highly recommend that you do some research to find the right one for you.  Once you find a registrar, go ahead and register your domain name. If the name you want is taken already, then you can either check to see if a similar name is available or choose a completely different name altogether.  Just be sure to inform us of the name change so that we can modify the records on our end.  Once the domain name is secured, you will need to modify the nameservers for your domain. Every registrar is different, but a simple search for your registrar followed by “nameserver change” should get you to the help that you need. The name servers will need to be changed to NS1.UNIQUETECH.NET and NS2.UNIQUETECH.NET. Here are some links that might help you out:

Step 2: Wait at least a few days

It will take us at least a few days to develop your website. If we have any questions about anything, we will get in contact with you. As always, feel free to contact us if you have any questions. You will receive a password reset email once your website is ready after which you will then be able to change your password to one of your choosing.

Step 3: Manage your website

You can manage your website by entering the following in your web browser’s address bar:

http://manage.[mydomainname] or http://[mydomainname]/wp-admin where [mydomainname] is the domain name that you registered in step 1. For example, let’s assume that you registered the domain name mydomain.com in step 1. You would be able to manage your website by entering either http://manage.mydomain.com or http://mydomain.com/wp-admin in your browser’s address bar.

You will be presented with a login screen. Once logged in, you will have access to all of your websites backend functions such as updating content on a blog or page, uploading media, adding or changing inventory items in your online store, and so on and so forth… The rest is pretty much self explanitory, but here are some links to help you out if you’re not sure about something:
