Changing the URLs of your SuperSite 2 and PartnerSite

Helper4Web.com provides you with Partially Branded URLs for your SuperSite 2 and PartnerSite. You may choose them as your SuperSite 2 and PartnerSite URLs to display and sell your Products and Services. Alternatively, you can maintain complete anonymity from Helper4Web.com, by setting up a Fully Branded URL.

Note

The Fully Branded SuperSite 2 URL can not be the same as your PartnerSite or Control Panel URLs. You must create different Branded URLs for these interfaces, in order to have the SuperSite 2, PartnerSite as well as the Control Panels functional at all times.

Partially Branded URLs

By default, you have a Partially Branded URL of the form:

  • Customer Control Panel - http://<prefix>.myorderbox.com/customer

  • Reseller Control Panel - http://<prefix>.myorderbox.com/reseller

  • SuperSite 2 - http://<prefix>.supersite2.myorderbox.com

  • PartnerSite - http://<prefix>.partnersite.myorderbox.com

Now, you can select the prefix of your choice. Ideally it should be your Company Name or your Brand Name. You would then have to submit your selected prefix from your Control Panel. Follow the process outlined below to change the prefix:

  1. Login to your Reseller Control Panel. 1

  2. In the Menu, point to Settings and then click Branding Settings.

  3. Click the Branded URL Prefix tab.

  4. Here, you need to enter your desired prefix and click the Update button. On submitting the same, the prefix would be assigned to you, and would be common to all your Partially Branded URLs, i.e. SuperSite 2 URL, PartnerSite URL and Control Panel URLs.

Attention

In case this prefix is not available, you will encounter an error message:

This prefix is already used. Choose another one.

You would have to select another prefix under such a circumstance.

Note
  • Even after your Partially Branded prefix is changed, the old prefix can not be used by anyone else except you for a period of 30 days. After 30 days, however, the prefix will be deleted and will become available for anyone to utilize.

  • If upon changing your prefix, you wish to revert to the same (within this 30 day period), you may do so by following the process outlined above.

  • Once the prefix is deleted, your Partially Branded Name Servers containing this prefix will also be deleted.

Fully Branded URLs

Besides Partially Branded URLs, you can point your own URLs to our servers and use those as your Fully Branded URLs. Helper4Web.com allows you to have as many Fully Branded URLs as you wish; however, you would have to create the relevant DNS Record for each of the URL you select.
