To start hosting your website here you first need to make an account. You can do so by clicking on Login/Account in the lower left corner.
That will take you to the login screen. There you can click on "create new account".

Click "new site" under "My Sites".
Fill in the name of your site. This name will be used to make your site accessible at SITENAME.ellyps.net

- And for other environments there's cadaver.
