Before you log into your web hosting account’s cPanel control panel, you must open your internet browser. Click on your browser’s address bar and enter the http address of cPanel for your account. The address to your cPanel would have been given to you in your welcome email when you signed up for your web hosting account.
There are two ways to log into cPanel:
1) Using an IP address – This is the only way to access cPanel if you domain hasn’t propagated yet, that is, resolved to the DNS server on your web hosting account.
2) Using your domain name – This can only be done once your domain name has resolved to the DNS server on your web hosting account.
Select one of the two methods above then in your browser’s address bar, type in the cPanel address given to you in your welcome email. Then click the Go button or press enter.
When the login popup appears, enter your username and password as given to you in your welcome email. Then click the OK button.
That’s all there is to it. You are now logged into cPanel and can begin to setup email addresses, add-on domains, databases, shopping carts, and dozens of other features.
