You’ve been given Cpanel login details from your webhost… now what do you do?

In my case I didn’t have a clue. In fact I didn’t even know what a Cpanel was!

Yet, if like me you’re going to set and up operate an online business, you will need to know at least a little bit about Cpanel, and how to use it.

So….the purpose of this blog post is to briefly explain what Cpanel is, and provide an overview of the main elements you will need to know how to use to manage your web hosting service, and your website.

What is Cpanel?

Cpanel is an abbreviation for the term Control Panel.

It refers to a Control Panel dashboard which is provided to you by your website host to control your website’s hosting service, and some tools and functions associated with managing your website.

Not every website host will give their customers access to a Cpanel, but most will. For example the two website hosts I use, Siteground, and D9 Hosting both have given me access to a Cpanel to manage my website.

What do I use Cpanel for?

Here’s a very short summary of just 5 helpful things you can use Cpanel for:

  1. Instal WordPress on your web site
  2. Add a new email account which includes your domain name
  3. Add a new domain name, and/or a sub domain name
  4. Upload, download and manage your website files
  5. Backup your website

If you go to this website, it has a good explanation of each of these Cpanel functions.
