Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How difficult is it to set up my Zednet site?
It's as simple as falling off a log! With your Zednet site
there is no software installation for you to worry about. The software runs
live on the Internet and will already be installed for you. You do not need to
know anything about programming to customise your site, simply follow the point
and click menu. If you can type (even with just one finger) and use a mouse,
you can update your site.

Your Zednet site comes complete with 12 months hosting
already included. There are no extra charges.
Q. How quickly can I get my Zednet
Your Zednet site will be set up for you within 24 business
hours. When we set up your site we will input your basic details and logo (if
applicable) and test the site to make sure it is working correctly. We will
then email you with all the details and tell you how to access your control
panel so you can customise your site and add your products.
Q. What about support?
Your new Zednet site comes with a detailed Users Guide. This

Zednet domain name.

for you, so there is no programming required.
