Do I need a domain name?
Yes, you will need a domain name, if you don't already have one. We recommend registering one at http://domains.elliottbrand.com, but you can use GoDaddy or any other domain registrar as well . If you need any help with this, please just ask.
Do I need hosting?
No, since all Racer Template packages are kept on our servers and you just pay monthly to use the site, you have no additional hosting fee. It's included in the monthly payment.
How long does it take to setup?
Your site will be setup within 48 hours, but typically within 12 hours.
Can I maintain my content?
Yes, your Racer Template site has an administration area where you can easily manage your site content, schedule, results, adjust your site colors (theme), upload a custom header image, and much more.
What do I do after I sign-up?
Once you sign-up, PayPal will send us a confirmation. Once that's received, your site will be setup and you'll be emailed your login information for the new site usually within 24-hours or sooner. It is helpful to let us know what your domain name is, so we can setup the site with the correct domain name.
Can I do anything to speed up the process of making my new site live?
Yes, you can do a few things. First, have your domain name registered. We'll need to know your domain name before setting up the account. Second, to quicken the time-to-launch, go ahead and have your domain registrar change the A-Record for your domain to point to 188.8.131.52 (most will do it for you or walk you through it). After those changes take affect, you'll see a Racer Template landing page, so this would reduce the amount of time that you'd normally have to wait after changing your A-Record later. If you still need help, just contact us. We'll be happy to help or perform the change for you.
