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 below.

order date This is the date you ordered your Virtual Server.
activation date 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.
account id The account id of this Virtual Server. This is the ID used internally to identify your account.
login name 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.
server host This is the name of the physical server or "fish" which hosts your Virtual Server (we have named of our physical servers after fish).
domain name This is the domain name you selected to use as the primary domain name for your new Virtual Server.
domain name
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.
ip address 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).
domain registration information This section of your configuration letter gives you precise instructions with regard to your domain registration status. An entire page is devoted to domain registration in the this Getting Started section of our web site.
