How to get started

Welcome to Texo!  Here’s how to order your hosting package and get your website and emails up and running:

1. Create an account with us

Register here to create your Texo client account. Remember to copy and save your account password, and please use an email address that you check frequently, because that is the email address that we will use for all correspondence with you, and to which we will send your invoices and domain renewal reminders. Registration provides access to the Texo Client Area for ordering and managing your hosting services and domains.

2. Order your hosting package

Once you have logged into your client area, either by clicking on the CLIENT LOGIN button on our website or directly. here:


Click on  Services > Order New Services and choose your ideal hosting package and/or domain name.

3. Set-up your domain

New domain: If you have ordered a new domain as part of your new service order, then you don’t need to do anything else to activate it – it will be live as soon as propagation is complete, usually within an hour.

Transfer your domain: To transfer an existing domain name to us, follow our step-by-step domain transfer guide.

Self-manage your domain: If you’d prefer to keep your domain registration with your current provider, you need to ensure that you have provided our name servers to your current domain host or registrar:


4. Log into your control panel

We use cPanel and DirectAdmin on our shared hosting servers. They allow you to manage your hosting account with us from anywhere in the world in a web browser.
