Please help me! I have just bought a domain name and paid for hosting at 123-reg, who were recommended on here. Great. Except now I have absolutely no idea how to go about creating the web pages and ensuring email addresses are correct or even how to access emails set to those addresses....... keeps telling me my login is incorrect, or to download an FTP (which I have - again, what do I do now??) I feel totally over my head, but have just spent £100 so really need to crack on! If anyone has any clue, please do let me know. thanks
They should have sent you a welcome email with information about what to do. You manage your internet services through a control panel which you get to via a web address in your browser. You need to know what that address is, and your username and password. It should all be in the welcome email.
They seem to have some help files on their site that are only accessible once you have logged in, so I can't help you there, but I am sure if you log in with the details you have been given and look around there will be guides for how to set things up.
