Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a domain name?

No, you don't absolutely have to have one. If you want, you can choose the second install option and your site will setup at a URL like http://YourUsernameHere.racertemplate.net.

If I want a custom domain, where do you recommend registering it?

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 send an email through the Contact page.

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 should only take a few minutes to setup, using the automatic installer. Note: This is a totally new feature, so if there are any issues, please contact us through the Contact Page.

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?

First, log into your admin area at http://YourDomainNameHere.com/rt-admin/ or http://YourUsername.racertemplate.net/rt-admin if you went the username route instead of a custom domain name. Once logged in, you'll need to update your password and email address immediately, since all new sites have the same username/password at the time of installation.

Can I switch from a Username based setup to a custom domain name later?

Yes, your site can always be switched to use a custom domain name later. You'll just need to contact us to make that change.
