Our servers are all located in Toronto, Canada.
Vybe Networks offers two different web based clients for email. They both access the same mailbox so you can try one and then the other without losing any email. Select "Clients" from the menu and select "Web Mail."
If you prefer to use a client on your own system, by far the most common option, then you need to set up your account settings to point to our server. See your client documentation for specific instructions.
Use mail.Vex.Net for both incoming and outgoing servers. The default port numbers should be fine. If you are using Vybe to send email set encryption (TLS) on, set it to authenticate before sending and set the port to 587.
Please note that we are very aggressive about blocking spam so it is important to follow these instructions carefully in order to get your email to pass through our system.
You can control spam from the control panel control panel. You will need your Vybe login and password to access that page. Under the "Users" tab select "Spam control" or "Email filters." There are a number of items to select. Each one is clearly documented on that page.
From the navigation on the control panel select "Users" and then "Email filters." That page explains how to use the filtering.
From the control panel there is a link on the left for "Web file manager" which will take you to a simple web based interface to your web site. See the FAQ on updating your site by FTP for using one of the many feature-rich secure file transfer programs if you want something a little more comprehensive.
Vybe Networks provides access to PostgreSQL and MySQL database engines. If you need to use either of these you must first email support@VybeNetworks.com to request a database be set up for you before you can access it. Once your database is set up, you will be given details on how to access your database.
Once you have created your web site you need to copy it to your Vybe Networks account under the directory "/u/WEB/login" where "login" is your Vybe Networks login. You can do this with various SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol) programs, with scp (secure copy) or rsync. You will need your Vybe login and password to access your files.
Once the files are in your web directory your web page will be served to the world. Some caveats:
- Make sure that your files are world readable
- Make sure that you have an index file in the directory
- Make sure that the files are installed under your web directory
You can also hire a company such as Vybe Networks to build and maintain your site. Contact sales@VybeNetworks.com for details.
In your control panel you will see a link on the left hand site called Web Site Stats. You will see a wide range of stats we maintain for you.
You can access your control panel from our main web site under the "Clients" tab. You will need your login and password to access it. This is the same login and password that you use to get your email.
We expect that most users will use their Vybe Networks mailbox as their only email address. Because of this we have no way to automate password retrieval. All you can do if you forget your password is to contact support here at Vybe. Once we establish that you are the owner of the account we will change your password and give it to you.
If you are part of an enterprise with multiple mailboxes under one hosting then one user will be designated as the "group leader". This user will also be able to change your password. In this situation that is the preferred way.
Assuming that you know your current password there is a place on the control panel to change your password. Simply put in your old password and then enter the new one twice. It may take up to five minutes for the change to propagate across the system.
Any way you want (almost). You can send a cheque to our office, pay by PayPal to billing@VybeNetworks.com, send email (Interac) money to billing@VybeNetworks.com, Pay by credit card on the control panel or call us with your credit card details. If you call us with your credit card you can ask us to keep it on file to apply against future invoices.
We do require a credit card for the initial, online application.
