How to Activate Your Account and the Benefits of Activating

Activating your account means to become a paying member. 

Once you activate your account you will be able to:

  • Register a domain
    1 domain name is included in all membership plans
  • Set up a Personalized Email Account such as You@YourDomain.com.
    1-3 personalized email accounts are included, depending on your plan
  • Access the FASO Stats
    (Meanwhile, you can activate Google Analytics for free.)
  • Enter the BoldBrush Competition for free
    1-3 contest entries/month are included depending on your plan (additional entries are $14/ea). 

When you activate prior to the end of your free trial period:

  • you get an extra month free
  • you do not lose any of your free trial time

A trial account is set up on the Monthly Gold Plan

If you wish to change plans, be sure to make that change BEFORE clicking on this Blue Button:


To Change Your Plan:

  • login to FASO Control Panel
  • click the ACTIVATE ACCOUNT button - upper left

  • click on Select a different FASO plan (lower right)

  • if you wish to save money and pay yearly instead of monthly, click on Save Money and Show Yearly Prices (top right) 
  • choose your member plan (click on grey button to select)
  • follow the prompts

To Activate (to pay FASO):

  • login to FASO Control Panel
  • click the ACTIVATE ACCOUNT button - upper left

This does 3 things:

  1. leads you through process of adding billing information
  2. automatically processes your first month fee and moves your next billing date forward to honor the remainder of your free trial time
  3. adds an extra 30 days to your free trial (our way of thanking you for your early activation)
  • to confirm, click Yes, Activate my account and charge me today
  • you will be prompted to enter your billing information
    [ You can also access your billing info by clicking the $ sign icon in the upper row of icons in your Control Panel. ]
  • enter credit card or debit card info - all fields are required and must match the info on your card and your data with your financial institution
  • click Submit Your Payment Info >>

Your card will be charged your first month's $28 fee on the Gold Plan (or the appropriate fee for the plan you chose). If you activate early, your next billing date is prorated forward ensuring that you receive all of your free trial time plus we add 1 more free month!


You can also call us toll-free at 1-877-327-6234 to provide your billing info over the phone. We can activate your account for you.  If you call in, it's helpful to have your account # handy.

To locate your account number:

  • FASO control panel
  • click Gear Icon (upper right)
  • select Account Settings
  • Account number shows at top left

Never send credit/debit card details via email as that is not a secure form of transmission. This includes our support tickets (which are emailed).
