Who Can Access Your Control Panel?
We recommend that only one person have access to your Control Panel. Due to the sensitive nature of information that is in it and the control it has, that person should be someone that you trust (YOURSELF???).
What Does the Control Panel Do?
The Control Panel is used to add/edit/delete email accounts, check site statistics (hits), check disk space, bandwidth, etc.
NOTE: When noted yourdomain.com, you would type in your domain name.
How To Access Your Control Panel
- Go to http://yourdomain.com/cpanel
- Your username and password have been sent to you in an email. You can elect to have the system remember it if you desire.
How To Set Email Accounts in cPanel:
- Click on the “Mail” icon
- Select “Add/Remove/Manage”
- Select “Add Account” at the bottom
- Type in the username, then the password
- NOTE: it is best to use upper and lowercase letters in your password AND to include at least one number.
- Use a password that you can remember, but not one that anyone could try to guess…BECAUSE SOMEONE WILL TRY TO GUESS IT.
- A couple of examples of this type of password is: kAra0k3 (Karaoke) or b1Gtop (bigtop).
- Change Quota if desired.
set determines how much space on the server you want to allow each mail box to store.
- By default, the quota is set at 10mb. This not a lot of space, but if you use Outlook and/or if you want to make sure your employees do not fill up your allotted space with their email, it is a good amount.
- You can change it to any amount you want. If you do not want to limit their space or if they do not check their email often, you can set it to unlimited.
- Select “Create Account”
- YOU’RE DONE!
