FatCow Mini Hosting- MiniMoo
FatCow offer a mini hosting plan called MiniMoo that is a way to get started on the Web with not just a domain name and an e-mail address, but also access to all sorts of site-building and management tools.
You can use SiteBuilder to build your own web pages, or just use the default “under construction” page.
MiniMoo is perfect for starting your business or placeholder for several domains:
- Customizable Control Panel
- Step-By-Step Tutorials
- Forwards & Auto Responders
- Newsletter Management
- Spam Filtering
Domain Central is a Domain Console for managing all your domains. From here you can reserve a new domain and add it to your account. You can also group your domains for ease of maintenance. You can make bulk edits to selected domains such as enabling privacy for all or editing contact information for all.
Registering a domain name
In the Reserve a New Domain Name box, enter the domain name you want to register, and then click Check Domain Name. The status of the name you entered displays to show the ones available. But I don’t recommend you register domain through Fatcow! Reasons are as follows:
- FatCow is a professional webhosting company, not Domain Name Registrar.
- They offer you Domain Privacy Services for $8.99 per year, but name.com offers FREE.
- You could buy a .INFO domain for only $1.99.In fact, many Domain Registers offer lower price than FatCow, to say nothing of .com,.net,.org etc.
Domain Pointing Manager
FatCow domain manager can help you determine your domains point to a specified directory or subdirectory. There are four different types of pointers:
- Home Directory - your domain points to the main directory of your hosting account
- Sub Directory - your domain points to a specified subdirectory of your hosting account
- URL - your domain points to a URL outside your hosting account.
- Domain parking - your domain is unreachable.
Addon domains make it possible to host unlimited sites with the same hosting account. It needs a sub directory within your main web hosting directory but can show a different web site. In fact Addon domains consist of two steps:
- 1.Contact your domain’s Registrar and ask them to change your domain nameservers to:ns1.fatcow.com
- 2.Enter the domain name in Domain Pointing Manager, the Add New Domain Pointer section.

Install wordpress on FatCow is easy. If you had some experience with Fantastico before, you will find Install wordpress on Fat Cow is a litter complicated. I will show you how to install WP step by step:
1.DomainCentral -> Add Registered Domain to Account. Enter the domain name in the form.
2.Scripting and Add-Ons -> InstallCentral -> Blogs -> WordPress -> begin installation.
Unlike Cpanel, you can easily compress your web file to zip. Just select the fold you want to compress, move or delete, then fill in the path , press the button ,all work down.
Remember if you don’t know how to set permission on UNIX or Linux, check out question mark on the right.
If you use cPanel X and want to backup or zip your files , it is not so easy.
FatCow Control Panel Introduction
FatCow use their unique control panel for customers to manage website. As far as I can see, Fat Cow’s control panel is more useful than Cpanel. Although Fat Cow’s control panel has lots of features, the system has room for improvement in several areas.I will compare it to Cpanel side by side in the other posts.
BTW, FatCow control panel has 7 modules, such as Web Site, E-mail, Domain, E-Commerce, Scripting and Add-Ons, Marketing Services, Account Information.
