The cPanel login page appears:
- In the Username text box, type your username which we have already emailed you.
- In the Password text box, type your password which we have already emailed you.
- Click Log in. When you enter the correct username and password, the cPanel home screen appears.
Note: If you do not know your cPanel username and password, you can ask us via email.
LOGGING OUT OF CPANEL
You should log out whenever you have finished using cPanel, because this notifies the web server that you have finished your session. If you do not log out, the server automatically closes your session after a set period of time. However, there is a small possibility that an attacker could exploit the open connection before this automatic logout occurs.
To log out of cPanel, follow these steps:
- Click the Logout icon.
Note: This icon has a different location and appearance depending upon the active cPanel theme. In most cPanel themes, the Logout icon is located in the top-right corner.
