DNS Information:

If you have registered your domain with a registrar company that has password protected your domain, you will need to manually change the DNS information on your registrar's site, so that your domain name points to JSM-Hosting. You must provide your registrar with our DNS servers' data:

  • DNS1: - NEW since Dec 31 2017
    (or - IP: "" usually not needed)
  • DNS2: - NEW since Dec 31 2017
    (or - IP: "" usually not needed)

If your registrar is, click here for instructions.

This new DNS information will have to cascade throughout the web. Therefore your domain name will only point to JSM-Hosting (and really become "active") a few hours later (two days maximum).

FTP transfer

As soon as your account on JSM-Hosting is set up, you can now begin uploading your web files onto your JSM-Hosting website. You can use any FTP software (for instance, Dreamweaver, FrontPage, WS_FTP...) to upload your files onto your website.

Until your domain name is registered and points to JSM-Hosting (see DNS above), simply use "http://yourIPaddress" as the FTP host name. When your domain is active, you may then use "yourdomain.ext" as the FTP host name.

Please note that:

  • Your FTP software must be configured so that all files are uploaded in the "/www/" or the "/public_html/" directory,
  • You must select "passive FTP mode".

We also provide you with detailed instructions for setting-up a website with Dreamweaver,
and for converting a FrontPage website to DreamWeaver.


General e-mail setup

Full e-mail services are available on your account and are easily configurable on your Control Panel. If you are transferring an existing website to JSM-Hosting, be sure to setup ASAP any existing POP3 e-mail accounts you currently maintain in order to have a smooth transition without any loss of e-mail.

Once your domain name points to JSM-Hosting, e-mails will be sent to your account on JSM-Hosting. Therefore, it is important that you get right away your e-mail settings configured properly on your Control Panel.

E-mail software

Here are the settings you should use for your PC-based e-mail software (such as Outlook):

  • Username: "mailboxname@yourdomain.ext".
  • Password: the one you assigned when creating the mailbox in you panel.
  • Incoming Mail (POP3) server: "mail.yourdomain.ext".
  • Outgoing Mail (SMTP) server: "mail.yourdomain.ext", or you may have to use the one provided by your ISP (Internet Service Provider - for instance, "" if your ISP is Proximus) if you left 25 as SMTP port - NOT if you change your SMTP port to 587, which we recommend! endorses as e-mail software Eudora Light and Microsoft Outlook - click here for more information on setting-up Outlook e-mail.

You can also read your e-mails on the web, from any PC.

Please remember that we have a very strict 'NO SPAM' policy.
Failure to comply will result in your account being suspended, if not terminated, without notice. More info...

NEW: E-mail authentication

To prevent that the JSM-Hosting e-mails you send get rejected or delivered to Spam/Junk folders, you should setup DKIM & SPF for your account.
More info here or here... To do so, you should (to our limited understanding):

  1. Open your cPanel.
  2. Click on "Authentication" in the EMAIL section.
  3. Click on the two "Enable" buttons (DKIM & SPF).
  4. In the "Additional IP Address blocks for your domains (IPv4 or IPv6)" box of the SPF section:
    • Remove all old existing IPs,
    • Add "yourIPaddress",
    • Add IP "".
    • Note that another IP will automatically be added (as stated in the explanation text in that page - currently "").
  5. In the "Include List (INCLUDE)" box of the SPF section, add:
    • ""
    • if you use a PC software such as Outlook and send mail through your ISP's SMTP, add this SMTP (example "").
  6. Click on "Update" then "Go Back".


  • Procedure under 4. should be repeated each time "yourIPaddress" changes.
  • The above information applies ONLY to e-mail addresses configured on It is given to the best of our limited knowledge, without any form of waranty, and it may be incomplete or partly wrong.
    We decline all responsability for the consequences of any error or omission it may contain: It is your responsability to find out the proper settings.

Control Panel

Your Control Panel is a comprehensive version of the user friendly cPanel. You can access it anytime at the URL, at "http://yourIPaddress/cpanel" or at "http://www.yourdomain.ext/cpanel". Simply provide "your-user-name" and "your-password" that we sent you in our initial e-mail.

Note that you may get a "security certificate" error message. Just ignore it and click on "Continue on this website".

We ask you to promptly change "your-password" to something very secure (at least 12 characters, including both uppercase and lowercase letters, figures and signs). Failure to do so could result in your account being hacked and therefore terminated. More info...

Also, we ask you to maintain a valid contact e-mail address on your cPanel ("your e-mail address") and inform us if you were to change e-mail address. Failure to do so could result in your account being suspended and eventually terminated. More info...

Initially, you will have to use "http://yourIPaddress/cpanel" for the first one or two days, until your domain name is pointing to JSM-Hosting (see DNS above).

Until your domain name is pointing to JSM-Hosting, some functions within your Control Panel will not be available or work properly. Don't panic! As soon as your domain name is pointing to JSM-Hosting, you can begin taking full advantage of all our services and features.

JSM-Hosting wishes you a nice day!
