What Makes Clantoolz Different?
Clansite Hosting is very different from blank web hosting offered by providers on the web. We have created a Premier Collection of clan management tools we call a "Clansite". Having a Clansite from Clantoolz.com will allow you to manage and organize your clan better than you ever have before. Included in your new clansite is a powerful feature set of Browser Based Management Tools designed specifically for clans and clan management.

A Clantoolz Clansite is designed to maximize your clan organizing and game time while Eliminating Web Development completely. Our intent is to allow your Online Gaming to become the focus of your time, with No Web Development.

We also understand that having a Clan is all about  Clan Identity, so we've included tools that allow you to Personalize Your Site using a built-in Admin Section.

 

In Addition, each Website Account comes with Password Protection. Logging on gives you access to all the editing capabilities of your Clansite Admin and includes the ability to determine clan member access levels, giving you total control over permissions.

All the tools that come with your Clansite account are designed to be "Quick" and
"Easy to Edit". All the features of a Clantoolz Clansite are managed directly through your browser anywhere you have Internet access.

How does Clansite Hosting work?
When you sign up for a Clantoolz Clansite Account you receive a Unique Clansite with a Unique Web Address. This Web Address or URL will be a Clantoolz.com based domain with the unique identifier you choose at sign up. For example the URL for the clan "GamerClan" could be this:

http://www.clantoolz.com/gamerclan

When the transaction process is completed you will be able to find your New Clansite at the Unique Account URL you chose.

If your interested in having Your Own Domain Names (www.myclan.com) function as a Clansite and completely operate under your own domain, you can accomplish this by following the instructions for domain name additions in our  Clansite Support Forum.

During sign up you will be asked to submit a user name and password. This is your login for all the features of your Clantoolz account. Logging in gives you total control of your account, allowing you to:
Add Forum Members, Clan Members and Set Access Levels
Change the Appearance of your Site
Administer your Forum and Features
Modify your Account Information
Extend Hosting Services
as well as gaining access to the general administration and editing of your Clantoolz Clansite.

As you begin the process of using your New Clansite, we hope you take full advantage of all the features by experimenting, exploring and maximizing via the Admin section and/or Feature edit sections.

Maintaining a secure clansite is an important part of our service and we have made every effort to support controls on forum and clansite access based on the hierarchy of Admin, Clan Leader, Clan Member, Site Member, and Public Visitor.

You may choose to make your clansite Completely Public, Completely Private, or a Combination of the two.

Your Clansite can be completely locked from the Public with a login gate or any given forum in your clansite can have restricted access based on the hierarchy. If you choose to create public access areas on your clansite, be assured that without permissions visitors without permission will only be able to view your clansite content, and not edit, delete, or add to it. Only you and the members you allow specific permissions will be allowed to add, delete, or edit content within your Clansite.

For more information regarding access levels, please see  Clansite Support Forum.

How Much Does A Clansite Cost?
A Clantoolz Clansite Costs $10.00 per Month.

The Facts:
Developing and maintaining your own clan website from scratch is a
Royal Pain in the Ass!, not to mention a lot of time and energy.

You want to be a Productive Clan Leader.
You also want to Perfect your Game.
So when do you Find Time?

On Top of That...
You will have to spend as much money (if not more) on hosting your data driven website in order to get the same resources Clantoolz offers you without ever having to develop a single line of code!

Long Story Short...
Stop trying to re-invent the wheel! You may spend all that time, end up with less functionality and still have to pay for a hosting service with database capabilities
= (BIG $$$$$ + Time).

Why not use a Clantoolz Clansite as your Clan�s website instead? We offer all the functionality you need, plus It's Cheap!

Also, if you need our tools and already have Your Own Clan Domain Name, we can handle that too! Using our Name Servers (DNS) we can point your domain name(s) "www.YourClanDomain.com" to your new clantoolz clansite "www.clantoolz.com/YourNewClansiteURL" and it will work seamless using that domain name as well. That means you can give out your Established Clan Domain Name and send all your viewers to your fully functioning Clantoolz Clansite.

For more information on Domain Name setup, check out our Clansite Support Forum
We can "Guarantee" that you will save so much time each month using our tools that it will pay for itself in saved time and effort for you and your clan members.

SO BRING IT ON, CREATE A CLANSITE RIGHT NOW!

How Do I Create A Clansite Account?
Go to Clantoolz.com and click Create a Clansite. Follow the instructions. Make sure you have your Credit Card or PayPal information ready in order to pay for your new Clansite.

Back to Top
What Is An "Account"?
A Clansite "Account" is a record of the basic information used to create your account with Clantoolz.com. Using your "Account Admin" you can edit your account information at any time. The link is found on the Clantoolz.com homesite. Change your password, e-mail address and other general account information as needed using this "Clansite Account Admin". It is important to know that: We do not hold any information regarding your credit card numbers, credit transactions or private credit information within this account record or anywhere else within our web servers.
Back to Top
"Account Admin" VS. "Clansite Admin"?
Your "Account Admin" is very different from your "Clansite Admin".

Your "Account Admin" is accessed only through the Clantoolz.com homesite, and is for review and modification of your clansite account with us, including extension of services.

Your "Clansite Admin" or "Admin" is accessed through the top or left side navigation of your own Clansite after you login, and allows you to edit "ALL" the Functions and Properties of your Clantoolz Clansite.
Back to Top
How Do I Close An "Account"?
Closing an Account is simple. Please go to this page: Close My Account and send us a request for site termination. You can also let your clansite expire by doing nothing, if you desire. We do ask that if you have a domain name associated with your clansite that you contact us in order for us to eliminate the DNS record associated with your domain.
Back to Top
Can I Use My Own Domain Name(s)?
Yes!, Yes!, Yes! We can make your Clantoolz Clansite work under any domain name. Using Our Name Servers (DNS) and Web Servers we can set-up your domain name(s) "www.YourClanDomain.com(s)" to work just like your new clantoolz clansite "www.clantoolz.com/YourNewClanURL". That way you can keep giving out your Established Clan Domain Name and start sending all your viewers to your brand new fully functioning clansite. The clansite will completely function under the new domain you have chosen to set up.
