cPanel Support - Starting Out
You need to log on in order to use CPanel to manage your web site.
To log on:
1. Enter the address of your CPanel in your web browser. The address needs to be in the form of http://www.yourdomain.com:2082 or https://www.yourdomain.com:2083
2. Enter your user name and password in the UserName and Password fields.
3. Click on OK button. You will now be logged on to CPanel.
You should explicitly log out whenever you have finished using CPanel, as this tells the web server that you have finished that session. If you do not log out, the server automatically closes your session after a set period of time, but there is a small chance that a hacker could use that open connection.
To log out:
- Click on the logout button. This is located on the opening page of cPanel in both the default and iconic themes.
