    hawkhost signup

    Hawkhost doesn't seem to provide option to sign up without domain name. Maybe I've overlooked. Does anyone know how to begin service and add domain name later or is it a requirement to begin service with one.

    They should be able to set you up with either a temporary address or attach a subdomain off of their main domain name to setup the account with. It is probably not offered possibly due to the limitations of their management software configuration or it is not enabled because a majority of the signups would have their own domain name.

    I am sure if you contact them either through their helpdesk or email and let them know what you are trying to do they should be able to accomodate you.

    Most hosting companies will need a valid domain name to get started. This can be also a part of their fraud checking too.
    Any way, contact them and ask whether you can signup with them without a domainname.
    By the way, I wonder, why you need a hosting without a valid domain?

    I've started service without domain names in the past. I let my domain names expire as I haven't been doing webwork in a while. I was going to get everything setup and decide on domain names later. But, I can certainly understand the fraud issue that you brought up. I hadn't thought of that. By the way, do you guys recommend hawkhosting? Are there any limitations that you know about. Pair is a great host, but they are expensive.

    I think they have live chat support. Contact them and see if they can do anything about it.

    I'm a few days late on this one. But to answer your question you can simply put in myname.hawkhost.com in the field when you select update name servers. This will get around the domain requirement we have when signing up for hosting.


    This could have also been answered through our live chat on our website or even an email to sales which I imagine you actually did as I did a search on chats and tickets and found someone asking about this very thing.

    Do you have any promo codes? I am thinking about processing order with domain registration immediately.

    Your best bet for coupons is to use the Shared Hosting Offers Forum or maybe http://couponsnexus.com/. In both cases just search for the host you're looking for coupons for. Or I imagine even a google search will bring up various hosting coupons.
