CubeCart

CubeCart is a shopping cart application created by a group of third-party developers. Because myhosting.com did not directly develop this application, we recommend that you consult CubeCart's website and documentation for further assistance in setting up or troubleshooting your Cubecart installation.

You can check the CubeCart Support Page for further assistance.

Please note that CubeCart Support Tickets are restricted to customers who have purchased a CubeCart license. You can purchase a CubeCart license directly from cubecart.com for use with your myhosting.com eCommerce add-on. The purchase of a CubeCart license will allow you to remove the "Powered by" and "Copyright" text from the bottom of your shopping cart pages.

CubeCart Email Settings

By default, CubeCart is not properly configured to send email. You'll need to change your email settings from the CubeCart admin if you want to be able to receive email from the application.
You can follow these steps:

  1. Log into your CubeCart administration page with the administrator username and password
  2. Click on General Settings
  3. Change Email Address to an existing email address on your domain
  4. Change the Mail Sending Method to SMTP
  5. Enter the SMTP Port as 25
  6. Enter the SMTP Host as smtp.your-domain.com (make sure to replace "your-domain.com" with your actual domain name)
  7. For Use Authentication? select Yes
  8. For the SMTP Username, enter the email address that you entered in step 3
  9. For the SMTP Password, enter password for that email account

Please make sure you have enabled SMTP for the email address you are using. This can be completed from the Email Administration page at http://emailadmin.myhosting.com

Zen Cart

Zen Cart is an open source shopping cart application created by a group of third-party developers.

  7. Change the SMTP Email Account Password to the password for that account
