Authorize Pop-ups

Sometimes a pop-up window is blocked. A message like “Pop-up blocked” is displayed. If this happens, you need to close the pop-up blocker.

In this article we will explain how to do this for Safari, Chrome and Firefox, as the use of these browsers is widespread among PlanetHoster customers. We will also explain it for Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge and Opera browsers.
