How to Login to cPanel

Before you can log into cPanel, you must open your Internet browser. This will work in whatever browser you are using.

Click on your browser's address bar and enter the https address of your cPanel. The address of your cPanel would have been given to you in your welcome email from your hosting company. There are three ways to login to cPanel:

  1. Using an IP Address
    The only way to access cPanel if your domain hasn't propagated yet
    It would look something like this- http://xx.xx.xx.123/cpanel
  2. Using your Domain Name
    Can only do this once your domain name is working, you'll be redirected to the servers SSL domain.
    This would be or if visit the servers SSL domain directly, like
  3. Through your Billing Account
    Visit My Products & Services and click "Manage" button behind the web hosting package you want to manage. Now scroll down a bit and click the button that says "Login to cPanel".
    You will be automatically logged in.

Enter either cPanel address in the address bar of your browser (either the IP Address, or the Domain Name). The next pop-up screen will be a login, calling for your user name and password. They should have been given to you in your welcome email also. Fill in those two fields, and click ok.

That's all there is to it! You are now logged it to your cPanel and can begin to set up email accounts, parked domains, databases, shopping carts, and many, many more feature!

To exit cPanel, simply click on the Logout icon in the right hand corner, or simply close your browser window. However, if you are using a public computer, always remember to logout instead of just closing the browser because of security concerns.
