Uploading & Editing Files

5) How do I upload files and update my website?
You have two choices; use FTP or our web based file manager. We highly recommend you use FTP as this enables you to edit and transfer files at much faster speeds. If you are not used to using FTP you can use the file manager which is in your ZHCP (Zymic Hosting Control Panel) which is easy to use. [X] Close Answer
6) How do I use FTP?

7) How do I edit the homepage?
Your home page is a file called index.html, by default this will be uploaded when you create your account. You can either delete it and upload your own home page or simply edit it. index.html will always be the page people see when they visit your site directly, e.g. http://site.99k.org so you must make sure you have it uploaded. index.htm, index.php etc may also work.

We allow 5 databases per website account. This gives you enough accounts and storage to run plenty of databases on our servers. [X] Close Answer
11) Do you offer PHPMyAdmin?
PHPMyAdmin is an advanced MySQL database management package which can perform a range of database tasks. It is open source, written in PHP, and is among the better tools available for working with MySQL databases. [X] Close Answer
12) How do I create a database?
