CPanel is a Linux-based graphical user interface (GUI) used for managing websites and servers. Websites can be published, domains can be managed, web files can be organized, email accounts can be created, and more can be done with cPanel.
In the United States, cPanel is a popular control panel. As part of their hosting packages, many web hosting companies offer cPanel to their customers.
Web Host Manager (WHM) and cPanel are two interfaces that are used by cPanel. Users can manage their websites with this combination, while hosting providers can manage their servers.
Can I get cPanel for free?
Since cPanel is a third-party application, it is not free. In most hosting plans, cPanel is included for free. For some providers, cPanel is free for the first year and then charges a fee after that.
Many web hosting companies are considering switching from cPanel to another website control panel in 2019 due to cPanel’s price increase.
How private is cPanel?
Your cPanel account is private. Make sure you keep your username and password secure if you are a website owner. The information and settings of your website need to be kept secure.
Logging into cPanel
Your browser’s address bar can be used to log into your cPanel account. Put your website address followed by a colon and 2083. https://yoursite.com:2083 is how you would access your cPanel.
Enter /cpanel after your website address to access your cPanel. Your cPanel login would look like this: https://yoursite.com/cpanel.
You can use the IP address instead of the DNS address if you have a new website and the DNS records are still propagating on the server. If you were to access your cPanel via IP, it would look something like this: https://10.10.10:2083.
You can change the language of cPanel’s interface by selecting your language at the bottom of the login screen.
To make it easier to return to your cPanel page later, bookmark your cPanel page before you log in.
Login to your cPanel account by entering your username and password and clicking Log In. You will then be redirected to your website’s control panel where you can make adjustments.
