How do I access my cPanel dashboard?
- If your website’s URL starts with http, add :2082 to the end of your domain.
- If your website’s URL starts with https, add :2083 to the end of your domain.
This would be an example of how it looks like:
If you can't see the website please be sure that you typed the URL in correctly and if you are getting an error saying the website timed out, please contact us as you may be blocked on the firewall.
Once you're in you will be greeted by this look of cPanel, this is the default look of the dashboard without any changes made by us, you can customize it yourself by applying different types of themes.
Couple Things To Do Once You Launch cPanel!
Once you have your email created, you can access webmail which is web interface mail application from which you can send and receive emails. We have an article about this which I will post below.
- Addon Domains – these are completely standalone domains e.g. webworld.ie
- Subdomains – these are prepended to your domain name, e.g. blog.webworld.ie
To add these domains under your panel, you have to be in the main dashboard and under the "Domains" section click into "Addon" domain if you wish to add a separate domain name and click into "Subdomains" if you want to add a subdomain.
To access this, from the main dashboard find the "Files" section and then under it go into "File manager". Once you click into File manager, a new interface will open which will look different to the original dashboard. This is where your website is stored. To upload a file or files click the "Upload" as shown below.
