Web Hosting Administration Interface

Welcome to the Aureon Web Hosting system.

Support Information on Windows® Web Hosting can be found here.

Using this system you can create new Email users under your domain (i.e. user@yourdomain.ext). This is an overview of how the Administration Interface works.

With activation of service you'll receive an Account Settings document with your account information via email. The Account Settings Document includes the Administration Site URL (http://webpanel.netins.net) and your Admin Username.  A separate email will be sent with your Password for entry into the Administration Site.

Type your Administration Site URL (http://webpanel.netins.net) into your web browser's address bar. This will bring you to a screen similar to the one below. Enter your Admin Username and Password from the Account Settings Document emails.

Correctly entering your Admin Username and Password will bring you to the Administrative Site Menu. Here you will be presented with six options.

New User Setup 
First, click on the Manage Email icon or on eMail in the Navigation bar at the top of the window.


Then click on New User Setup.

In the New User Setup screen there are Required and Non-Required fields. The Required fields include:

  • Real Name:  This is the real name of the person you are adding an account for.
  • User Name:  This is the unique login for each user that will also become the first part of their email address. If you are adding an account for Bill Smith, you may use "bill" as the User Name. Bill's email address would become bill@yourdomain.ext
  • Password:  We suggest a cryptic password to use, but you can change this to whatever you would like.

The Non-Required fields include:

  • Alias:  Use this if you want email for more than one address to go to Bill's account. You could enter "william" into the Alias field and an email sent to william@yourdomain.ext will go into the mailbox for bill@yourdomain.extMore than one alias for each account can be created by adding each additional alias on a separate line in the entry field. Using a comma (,) or a semi-colon (;) will not work.
  • Forward To:  If you want email intended for bill@yourdomain.ext to be sent to another email address, enter any valid email address in the Forward To field.  This can also be accomplished later by the user in their Webmail settings.

If you make a mistake and would like to clear all of the entries you've added, you can click on Reset. After adding all of the appropriate entries, click Create.

Real Name, User Name and Password are required fields. A user can't be added without submitting all required fields.

'Aliases' and 'Forward to' are optional fields.


After clicking Create you will be returned to the Add New User screen. This gives you the option to create another user. If you are finished adding users, click the Home button on the top left corner of the web page.

To set up an email client to use the new mail hosting account visit the Email Client Setup Guide.

User Administration

NOTE: If you are making a change to a user account, make absolutely sure that all webmail sessions are logged out and all email clients using the account are closed before any changes are made. If all sessions of webmail are not closed and something goes wrong, do NOT attempt to fix this yourself. Instead emailwebmaster@netins.net

First, click on the Manage Email icon or on eMail in the navigation bar at the top of the window.

Then click User Administration.

The User Administration section of the site provides you with the tools to view the different attributes assigned to each user.

Under Actions there are three icons for each user.

Clicking on the Blue Circle will show the information for that user and let you change it. If you make any changes, you will need to click UPDATE to make the changes take effect. You can also see how much of their mail storage is currently in use.

Clicking on the Yellow Key will allow you to change the password for that user.

Note that passwords must be at least 6 characters long, and cannot be a word in the dictionary.

Clicking on the Red X will delete the user account.

You will have to click DELETE ACCOUNT to complete the task.

View Storage

First, click on the View Storage icon in the lower right hand corner, or click Storage in the navigation bar at the top of the screen.

The Disk Usage section calculates how much hard drive space your website is using. Under Space Used/Available you will see, numerically, how much space you have used for your web pages. The pie chart shows the same information

Email usage is not displayed here, it can be viewed under Manage Email.

This tool is intended for customers that have a Web Hosting account. If you are using the Administration Interface strictly for email this tool will not provide you with any valuable information.

If you use the Web Hosting Service, click on View Statistics/logs

You can view Statistics showing the Top 10 referring web sites, or the top 50 visitors. The Access Log shows a listing of access requests.

Group Management

If you would like to create one email address that distributes mail to multiple users in your organization - you could use a Group.  For example, if you want email for sales@yourdomain.ext to be delivered to bill@yourdomain.ext and mary@yourdomain.ext, this is how you would accomplish it.

First, click on the Manage Email icon or on eMail in the navigation bar at the top of the window..

Then click Group Management.

This will open the Group Management interface for your domain.

To create a new group enter the New Group name (this will be the email address for your group) and give it aReal Name which would better describe the group you are setting up. Then click CREATE GROUP. You will see your new group added to the list of Current Groups.

If you click the Blue Circle you will see the information for your group. To add members to the group, just type in their username and click ADD MEMBER.

  • Report Delivery to Group

If this option is selected, then a delivery report (if requested) is generated as soon as a message is copied and re-submitted for delivery to all group members. If subsequent delivery to any group member fails, error reports are not generated. If this option is not selected, delivery to this group is processed as relaying, and the delivery notification options are copied to addresses of all group members. If delivery to any group member fails, the sender gets an error message. If a message was sent with delivery notification requested, the sender will get notification delivery from all group members.

  • Set Reply-To to Group

If this option is selected, the Reply-To: header pointing to the group address is added to the message copy before it is sent to group members. This ensures that replies to a message sent to this group will go back to the group, not to the message author.

  • Expand Member Groups

If this option is selected, the group members are checked before a message is copied and sent to member addresses. If a group member is a group in the same domain, then that group's members are extracted and inserted into the address list. If that group also has this option enabled, the extracted members are checked, too. This option allows more efficient group delivery (only one message copy is created for all recipients) and it also helps to avoid duplicates and mail loops.

If the group contains two other groups (sub-groups) as members, and those sub-groups contain the same address, then only one copy of the message is delivered to that address if the Expand option is enabled. If this option is disabled, the copy of the original message will be delivered to both sub-groups, and each sub-group will send its copy of the original message to that address.

  • Remove Author from Distribution

If this option is selected, the message From: address is removed from the (optionally expanded) members list.

  • Remove To and Cc from Distribution

If this option is selected, all addresses from the message To and Cc fields are removed from the (optionally expanded) members list. The sender address is always removed from the members list so the message sender does not get back his/her own messages.

To rename the group, click the Green icon.

<="" p="">

Then enter the new name in the New Group Name field and click RENAME GROUP.

To delete a group, click the Red X.

<="" p="">

Then click the DELETE GROUP button to completely remove the group.

MySQL Management

A working knowledge of relational databases is required to use these features.

The MySQL® database has become the world's most popular open source database, because of its consistent fast performance, high reliability and ease of use. It's used in more than 11 million installations, ranging from large corporations to specialized embedded applications on every continent in the world. (Yes, even Antarctica!)

  • Managing your MySQL Databases

Click on Manage Databases icon or the Databases link in the navigation bar.

From here you can create or delete MySQL databases

If you try to add more than two databases you will be warned that additional databases will result in a charge

Additional settings can be accessed using the PHPMyAdmin found here
