ORC Web Hosting Customer Center Overview


This tutorial is intended to introduce the user interface of ORC Web Hosting Customer Area ("Customer Center"). We have thoroughly developed our Customer Area and integrated all the important features required for an exceptional user experience. In the following lines you will learn how to easily navigate through the area and efficiently manage your information, payments, services and internal communication with our team.

The home page (dashboard) at a glance

The home page of your customer area provides at-a-glance information about your services, domains, invoices, and support tickets. Each dialog in the left pane contains shortcuts for easy access to the corresponding page.

We strive to keep our customers up to date, which is why you will find the NEWS link with all the news relevant to you in the left-hand area under HELP. Take a look there from time to time.

To get to know the Customer Center area you need to log in. We have also prepared a guide on how to log in to the Customer Center: Access to the customer area

Please note that ORC Webhosting has never sent newsletters and will not do so in the future. Therefore, if you receive an email with information from us, it is an important email and you should definitely read it.

  • Domains (displayed only if you have ordered the service)
  • Premium web hosting (displayed only if you have ordered the service)
  • Easy Web Hosting (Displayed only if you have ordered the service)
  • Cloud Server or Dedicated Server (only displayed if you have ordered a server)
  • Product Addons (Will only be displayed if you have ordered an addon)

In the lower area you can see all Support tickets with the status "Open" and all due invoices. These two areas are only displayed if there is a ticket or an invoice.

You will also notice two layered navigation bars - on the top of the page and on the left side. They consist of shortcut icons that allow easy access to specific sections with different information.

Top navigation bar

The top bar contains some icons, followed by a drop-down menu. We will go through them from left to right and explain them:

ORDER button: Here you can order additional products like domains or product extensions etc.

BUBBLE WITH EXCLAMATION MARK: The status messages of the server are displayed here. If all systems are working properly, this icon has no function. However, if a number appears, you can track the status of the server. Usually, you will also receive an e-mail informing you about the problem.

Bell symbol: If you click on this icon, the latest emails sent by ORC Web Hosting will be displayed. You will also have the possibility to view the entire email history, log files and credit history.

Balance: Shows you if you have an open invoice (red) or if you have credit (green) on your customer account.

Language switcher: Does not require explanation 🙂
