Introduction

Activating your Comcast Business account online enables you to perform a variety of functions such as checking email, downloading Norton™ antiviral software, accessing Microsoft productivity tools and managing web hosting and email boxes. The following steps will walk you through activating your online account for the first time. If you already have an account and would like to activate additional users, please read "Add, delete, deactivate Comcast Business online account users."

Note: If you have more than one Comcast Business account, you can link those accounts together to access all of your account-management features with a single sign-in email address. Be sure to follow the steps listed in "Link or unlink a Comcast Business online account" once you have activated your first account, as only an account that has not previously been activated online can be linked to another account.

Before you get started

You will need your Comcast account number for activation. This number is included in the welcome email you received following installation, can be found at the top-right corner of your billing statement, or obtained from the technician during your install. And please note that the email address you use will become the Primary Manager username.
