     13You will be asked with "host" or "server" you would like to connect to. Although you can use your domain name (such as mayfirst.org), we recommend that you specify your Primary host instead (such as malcolm.mayfirst.org, chavez.mayfirst.org, etc.). You can find your primary host by logging into the [https://members.mayfirst.org/cp Members Control Panel] and looking in the top right corner.

This warning is important! You do not want to risk connecting to the wrong server, because you will essentially be handing this server your username and password.
