Quick Start

Quick Start

This guide will introduce you to our products, and explain how to start using them quickly. By the end of this guide, you'll have:


DangoID is the login system powering all Dango products. With one username and password, you'll have access to everything in this guide, and more.


To start, you'll need

  • a username and password in mind
  • your email address



You must be 13+ to sign up for a DangoID account.

Head over to and click "Signup Instead" below the login form to show the sign-up form. Proceed to enter a unique username, your email, your first and last name, and your password. Discord User ID is optional, however, greatly recommended. If you choose to add an ID, format it as Snowflake (1234567890). Finally, solve the hCaptcha and click "Signup" to finish the process. You should then see a success alert, and you may now log in.


If you encounter any errors during sign-up, first check that your username is all lowercase, containing only letters and numbers. Then, check that your email is correct and that your password contains all legal characters. If you chose to enter a Discord User ID, make sure it's a Snowflake. If there are still errors after checking these, check our Status Page, and then contact support.

Logging in

Enter your chosen username and password from the previous step, and wait. Depending on our uptime and your region, the connection may take longer than usual. Once logged in, you'll be greeted with your avatar, and an alert asking you to continue the creation process by creating a Dango Portal account. This is essential for ordering any products from us. Once you log in to the Dango Portal for the first time, your sign-up process is complete. Return to MyDangoID, and you should see your Setup Progress. You have now successfully created and logged into your DangoID Account.


If you encounter issues on MyDangoID, first check the error message for any leads. Next, check that your username and password are valid. If everything looks good, there may be an error on our end. You should contact support. Getting error 500: INTERNAL_SERVER_ERROR? This may mean there's an error behind the scenes. First, check our Status Page for downtime, then contact support to get an immediate explanation. If you can't log in to the Dango Portal, contact support.

Dango Portal

Your Dango Portal account should be already set up from the last step. At the top right of your screen, you'll see your "Dangos", our currency. 100 Dangos equals exactly USD $1.00, and you can trade and redeem them. Dangos also can be won from our giveaways or claimed on holidays using a coupon.


Navigate to the homepage of the Dango Portal. Select "Basic Web Hosting", which is completely free. Free Hosting does not require renewal, and expires when you leave the Discord server, if you've linked an ID. Enter a free domain with whatever name and free TLD you choose. Most likely it'll be available, but if it's taken support will contact you. You can learn about all domain types here. If you already have a domain, type it in the field for an existing domain instead. Add the product to the cart, and continue to checkout. At the checkout, place your order with Dangos. We'll use your DangoID username, password, and email for the Control Panel login. Account creation is not automatic yet, as we have to register your domain first. Look out for an email from "", that will contain all your login information. Don't worry about domain connection information, we've taken care of that because you chose to register a free domain with us.


Logging in

To log in to the DirectAdmin Control Panel, you'll need your username and password. This should be your DangoID login unless your welcome email says otherwise. Once logged in, you should be presented with a page with all your features on the left, and your account limits on the right. You can always contact support to negotiate increased limits.


Once in the panel, navigate to the "SSL Certificates" feature, and select "Get automatic certificate from ACME Provider". Fill in the form with these details:

  • ACME Provider: Let's Encrypt
  • Common Name: domain.tld (your free domain)
  • Wildcard: No
  • Key Size (bits): EC-384
  • Certificate Type: SHA256
  • Certificate Entries: domain.tld, www.domain.tld

Once submitted, wait for an email containing SSL Certificate generation confirmation. Then, reload the page and toggle "Force SSL with https redirect" on, and save. SSL Certificates auto-renew, so there's no need to stress. Finally, visit your domain and verify it shows a secure lock icon on the top left of your browser, and no warnings show up. Certificates may take up to 24 hours to work, so you may have to wait for it.

Creating a website

Exit out of "SSL Certificates", and open "File Explorer". Open the "public_html" folder on the left. Your website files should appear in front of you. Open up "index.html", and replace all content with this:

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

The above code is an example Bootstrap website from Bootstrap. If you already have a website template, you can delete all old files and upload it to the "public_html" folder. Once you've done that, reload your domain and you should see your website!

Creating a email address

Close the "File Manager" tab, and open "E-mail Accounts". You should see one already there. It should look like <username>@<domain.tld>. On the free plan this is the only email account you can create, but you can contact support if you need more. All the way to the right, click the login icon and you'll be redirected to Roundcube, our online email client. If you choose to use another, like Apple Mail, Outlook, etc., contact support to get your connection details.


You've reached the end of the quick setup guide! You should now know how to:

  • Log in to DangoID
  • Log in to Dango Portal and place an order
  • Log in to and navigate DirectAdmin
  • Import and edit a website

If you would like to know more about specific topics, feel free to contact support! We're always happy to help!
