Login to cPanel

Before you can log in to cPanel, you must open your Internet browser. This will work in whatever browser you are using, Internet Explorer, Edge, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Vivaldi, Netscape, and others.

Click on your browser's address bar and enter the https address of your cPanel. The address of your cPanel would have been given to you in your welcome email from your hosting company. There are two ways to log in to cPanel:

1) Using an IP Address
The only way to access cPanel if your domain hasn't propagated yet.
It would look something like this: https://xx.xx.xx.xx/cpanel

2) Using your Domain Name
You can only use this preferred method once your domain name has propagated and is accessible.
This would be: https://yourdomain.com/cpanel

Enter either cPanel address in the address bar of your browser (either the IP Address, or the Domain Name). You'll reach the login page, requesting your user name and password. They should have been given to you in your welcome email also. Fill in those two fields, and click Ok.

That's all there is to it! You are now logged in to your cPanel and can begin to set up email accounts, parked domains, databases, shopping carts, and many, many more features!

To exit cPanel, simply click on the Logout icon at the right hand corner, or simply close your browser window. However, if you are using a public computer, always remember to log out instead of just closing the browser because of security concerns.
