Information in the Virtual Server configuration e-mail that you should pay particular
attention to (highlighted in bold in the sample letter above) is explained
This is the date you ordered your Virtual Server.
The date that your Virtual Server was activated. You will see this
date on your monthly billing statement because it is used to determine
your first month's prorated service fee.
The account id of this Virtual Server. This is the ID used internally
to identify your account.
You will use the login name to access your Virtual Server via FTP, telnet,
or SSH. Detailed presentations about how to use FTP, telnet, or SSH to
access your Virtual Server are given in other sections of this
Getting Started section of our web site.
This is the name of the physical server or "fish" which hosts your Virtual
Server (we have named of our physical servers after fish).
This is the domain name you selected to use as the primary domain name
for your new Virtual Server.
The temporary domain name can be used in place of domain name until
such time that your domain name is registered. This is provided as
a free service so that you can access your Virtual Server
while you wait on the registration authority (e.g. InterNIC) to
register your domain name. The temporary domain name will only work
for a period of a few weeks following the initialization and setup
of your Virtual Server.
The IP address gives the precise Internet address of your Virtual Server.
You will likely never need to use your IP address in part because the
Domain Name System (DNS) handles mapping between host names (which we
humans find convenient) and internet addresses (which computers deal with).
