The World: Getting Started Guide


The General Information of your The World hosting are centralized in an interface allowing to consult them easily. The interface also allows you to choose a package (Standard or Pro) and to adjust resources (for example, when you want to create additional hosting accounts, you need to increase them). You can also cancel a The World service.

This article explains how to use this interface.

Be careful not to confuse the deletion of an N0C account from The World portfolio with the cancellation of The World offer discussed in this article. In the first case, please refer to the article Accounts Suspension and Activation of Suspended Accounts.

Note: The PlanetHoster Glossary contains explanations on multiple topics and can be consulted to clarify certain terms.

Advantages of PlanetHoster’s approach

PlanetHoster’s offer, which enables the creation of several independent N0C accounts rather than offering a single access to a cPanel account, offers high availability.

This unique approach is a key — and often overlooked — advantage for our customers. The article How to Take Advantage of Hosting Accounts will convince you.
