In order for your website to become accessible by typing your domain name into a web browser, it must first be activated. Activating your website results in DNS records for your domain being automatically updated to point to our Web Hosting servers.

We recommend Activating your hosting package only after uploading the content of your website to our web hosting servers.

In order to activate your Web Hosting, please follow the steps below on our website.

  • Log into your Webnames.ca account
  • Browse to Account > Manage > Web Hosting
  • Click on the domain in question
  • Click on the Hosting tab
  • Click on the Activate Hosting button.
    Note: You will be presented with the option to activate both Hosting and bundled Emails (default), or to activate the Hosting only.


    Note: Once activated, please allow 6 - 24 hours for the resulting DNS record changes to propagate across the Internet to all users.
