Becoming Familiar And Navigating Around in CPanel




Lets learn about cPanel, and how to navigate it's many pages and functions. Making sure that your cPanel works at its best and set up just as you want it. This tutorial will assume that you are logged into your cPanel. If you are having trouble doing that, please see the tutorial named "How to Login to cPanel".

One of the first things you should do is go to Preferences, and click on Update Contact Info. It is very important that you keep that information up-to-date so that the server can send you messages about disk quotas and bandwidth, etc.

Stats. On the left you can see important information about the account. For example, it will show you how many email account you have, and how many you are allowed with your hosting account. It will give your bandwidth usage, show your home directory, display the number of databases used, etc.

Now let's look at the right side of the cPanel screen. The right side includes icons grouped into specific boxes. These icons allow you to do specific tasks within cPanel like setting up databases, setting up email addresses and auto-responders, and plenty more.

At the very bottom of the page is a link called Documentation. Documentation is the link to a comprehensive cPanel Manual where you can learn all there is to know about cPanel. This manual contains information about all the features of cPanel, and has sections on everything from common questions to something from every section in cPanel. It is always available from the home page of your cPanel. Keep in mind that not all of the features of cpanel may be available in your account.

To get back to the home page of cpanel, click the Home icon in the upper left or the home link at the very botton.

Something new in this version of cPanel is that you can rearrange the windows to suit your needs. For example, if you would like to have the section titled Mail on the top, you can move it by simply dragging and dropping the window where you want it.

This ends the tutorial. You should now be more familiar with cPanel and some of its features. To learn more, you can return to the cPanel Documentation link at the bottom of the cPanel main page.

You can now exit cPanel by closing your browser, or by using the Logout button in the upper right corner. Remember, if you are using a public computer, ALWAYS Logout of cPanel before closing due to security reasons.
