cPanel Tutorials

cPanel is one of the most powerful and full featured web site control panels available.

Extensive on line cPanel documentation is available by way of a link in your control panel located at the bottom left side, or by following this link. cPanel Documentation.

How to Access cPanel

You can access cPanel in several different ways. Two links were included in your welcome email, one for regular access and one for secure access. These links will vary from server to server and network to network, so we do not include them here. If you have trouble keeping track of links and passwords, be sure to take a look at Roboform.Click Here

Prior to your nameserver changes taking effect you may access cPanel at http://ipaddress:2082 or https://ipaddress:2083. The IP address is shown in your welcome email. It is highly recommended that this just be used temporarily until your nameserver changes have propagated and your domain name is pointed to our servers.

After your nameserver change has propagated and is pointing to our server you will be able to reach your site at http://yourdomain.ext and http://www.yourdomain.ext. You will also be able to access your control panel at http://yourdomain.ext:2082 or, for secure access, https://yourdomain.ext:2083 (replace yourdomain with your domain name and ext with your extension (.com, .net). You may also use http://yourdomain.ext/cpanel or https://yourdomain.ext/cpanel or http://cpanel.yourdomain.ext .

Server Contact Information

Please be sure to enter a contact address in control panel if not already installed and keep it up-to-date. This address is used by 24-7 Webs and the server to notify you about any problems or scheduled maintenance. If you are changing your contact information, be sure to send an email along to our billing department  as well.


Please note that these tutorials use the default control panel skin (X3). If you have selected a different theme, your control panel will not look the same as the tutorials.
