    The Site Administrator is the main account holder for your web hosting account, you will login here to manage your files, email, database, and so on.

    The Site Admin can create user email box accounts. These email box users can login as “User Administrator” and set up mail forwarding, autoresponders, and other email related tasks.

  2. How do I access my shell account?

    You can SSH into your virtual server to perform basic unix file operations, one good SSH client to use would be PUTTY for windows, which you can download via this link : http://omega.iwi.com.sg/downloads/putty.exe

    Use the following details:
    Hostname : www.yourdomainname
    Protocol : SSH
    Set SSH type to SSH2

    Login with admin@yourdomainname as the user name.
    Note : Using SSH requires that you work from a command line, if you are not familiar with Linux commands stick to the control panel instead.
