Accessing cPanel

Back

 

You can access your cPanel by logging in to your client area and selecting your hosting account you wish to access. If the function you want to perform is not available within our basic panel you can open up your cPanel using the menu option in the list.

 

To access cPanel directly:

  1. Type: https://IP:2083 into your preferred Internet browser.
    • IP is meant to stand for your website’s IP Address*. This will have been supplied in your welcome email
    • Approximately 24 hours after setting up your website, you will be able to access your cPanel interface by replacing the IP Address*. with your domain name**.
  2. Enter your cPanel username into the Name field.
  3. Enter your password into the Password field.
  4. Click Login.
    • You will be greeted by a cPanel startup page on your first login. We strongly recommend completing the Getting Started Wizard.

note Note: If you receive a security warning this is due to you being redirected to the secure https login. The certificates for the servers are usually set to the host name of the server (the name of the server) so if you are trying to access the cPanel via an IP address or your own domain then you may receive a security warning.

note Note: A colon symbol following an IP address or domain name denotes a specific port number. These port numbers are responsible for guiding data packets transmitted between 2 computers to specific processes taking place on either machine.

*IP (Internet Protocol) Address: A number that identifies a computer on a network, making it possible for other computers to find and communicate with it.

**Domain: The name you give your website, which will appear in your website’s URL and email addresses. Usually seen as example.com, where "example" is meant for your domain’s name.
