Now, it is necessary that you enter a valid email address and that you check regularly, because it will serve to create your customer account, and it is where you will receive important notifications about your domains or contracted services. If you already have a SWHosting account, click on "Sign in".

Click on "Create account":

On the next screen you can deactivate the auto-renewal of your domain (by default it is activated), buy other free extensions with your domain name or contract a hosting service to link to your domain. You must also add the requested information.

If the domain you want to register is a .ES, you will have to fill in some additional data, since it is essential that the administrative contact and technical of a .ES domain be a natural person, and not company.

Once the fields are filled in, you must enter your card details to formalize the contract, or choose the PayPal payment method.

Remember that loading credits using PayPal has a commission applied by PayPal. The credit that will be added to your SW Panel will be the result of the requested charge less the amount of commission charged by PayPal.

If you have a promotional code it is time to enter it and validate it. Otherwise, click directly on "Order now"

The first hiring should ALWAYS be made by credit card. Once you are already a customer, there are other types of payment methods.

You will receive an email with the welcome data to be able to access your SW Panel, your private client area, and start managing your domains and/or services:

When the domain is registered, you will receive an email, at the address indicated above, notifying the status of the domain

Also, in accordance with the regulations of the international organization for ICANN domains, and as explained in the Whois Accuracy, you will receive another email with a link for you to verify your email address.

It is very important to attend this email and validate this address within the established period of time (15 days), otherwise the domain will be deactivated until it is verified.
