Creating a host (Bolt)

When you have accessed the Control Panel you can navigate to the bolt section (bolt is our name for hosts). From here you can choose “add new bolt”,  followed by which server you wish to place your host on. 

Firstly you need to establish if your website is developed for PHP 7.3 or PHP7.4, this will determine which server is best suited for your website. PHP 7.4 has major speed improvements, so choose PHP 7.4 if you can. 

We currently have servers in Amsterdam, Oslo, New York, Johannesburg and Singapore. We recommend you choose a server location based on your target marked. E.g: If you target marked is located in Scandinavia then an Oslo based server is the based choice.

After choosing a server you can give you bolt a name. After creating your bolt you’ll receive an email with all the necessary information, such as SFTP info and database info. 

Then you are ready to upload your files, and database!
