Hosting Accounts jMailerPro Requirements

Introduction to Hosting Accounts


jMailerPro is a web-based application. This means it does not run locally on your computer, but rather, is accessed via a web browser. In order for your copy of jMailerPro to be installed, you need a hosting account attached to a domain name (i.e. example.com) to house the software and make it avaiable via your web-browser.

Note: GoDaddy Hosting Does Not Support jMailerPro!


Free Hosting Accounts

As a rule, 99% of Free Hosting Accounts do not support jMailerPro. These accounts are very limited in order to prevent e-mail sending from the free accounts.

Getting the account

Different hosting companies have different checkout options, but here is a general path they follow.

Nameservers

Important: If you have hosting with your registrar already (i.e. have a website on the existing domain, e-mail hosting, masked forward, etc..)  - changing the nameservers will disconnect  these settings. Some can be recreated on your new hosting account, but you will need to address these yourself.

If you have an existing domain registered already and you want to attach it to a new hosting account, you will need to change the nameservers. The nameservers can be modified at the domain registrars website (GoDaddy, NameCheap, etc..) but the processes have subtle differences. Typically, your hosting company will provide you with 2 or more nameservers. At your registrar, you will need to locate the nameserver configuration and change it to the servers your hosting company provided you with.

Below are links to tutorials from some of the most popular registrars.

Setting up e-mail forwarders and accounts


Forwarders
A forwarder is am e-mail box that does not collect mail, but rather routes it elsewhere.
  1. This section only applies to hosting accounts with cPanel.
  2. Login to your cPanel (http://YourDomain.com/cpanel usually)
  3. Find the "Mail" section of the cPanel.
  4. Select Forwarders
  5. Click on "Add Forwarder"
  6. The first box is the username you want @ your domain. So if your domain were example.net and you enter "bob" in the first field, you will be configuring bob@example.net
  7. Enter the address you'd like to forward the mails to. Example: your yahoo or gmail account.
E-mail Accounts
An e-mail account collects mail sent to it, just like your normal accounts at gmail, yahoo or your ISP.
  1. This section only applies to hosting accounts with cPanel.
  2. Login to your cPanel (http://YourDomain.com/cpanel usually)
  3. Find the "Mail" section of the cPanel.
  4. Select Email Accounts
  5. Fill the form in the top widget to create a new account.
  6. Now you can check the mail in these accounts at http://webmail.YourDomain.com - using the full e-mail address as the username.
