Let’s see how to use a cPanel
The ananova team will tell you how to use the features of a cPanel in an easy way. As there are lot of features available in cPanel which somehow increases the complexity for a normal user and most of the users dont know what are the features that are available in cPanel.
Here at ananova you will get to know each and every feature of cPanel:
1. Let’s start with the first row which has a heading named Preferences. In this row you will find
getting started wizard, change password, update contact info, change style, change language and shortcuts.
Change Password: When you click on change password icon you will be redirected to a page that will change the password for your cPanel access.
Update Contact Info: When you click on update info icon you will be redirected to a page where you can update the contact details of yours. Let’s see how:
2. Let’s see what second row consists ” MAIL” . In this row we can check email accounts, check our webmail, spam assassins, email forwarding, mailing lists etc. The main terms in this section are email accounts and our webmail. Let see what will happen when we click on Email accounts:
Email Accounts - Here we can create email accounts for the domains that we are using. Like if you have a domain named – “abc.com” then you can create an email account named – “email@example.com” or “firstname.lastname@example.org“.
3. Now let’s directly come to the 3rd row which has all the main icons which are of use to each and every user who is having hosting .
Backups - Backups allow you to download (to your computer) a zipped copy of either your entire site (including your home directory, databases, email forwarders configuration, and email filters configuration) or one of the previously mentioned parts of your site. These are not automatically scheduled backups. Automatically scheduled backups need to be enabled by the server owner/administrator.
File Manager- Now when you click on file manager you will redirected to a new window which will show you all the directories and folders that you have like:-
DiskSpace Usage: The cPanel Disk Usage Viewer provides an overview of the disk space that your account is using. It shows disk usage totals for your account’s directories and all of its databases rather than for individual files or databases. Use the File Manager to see disk usage data for individual files, and the MySQL main page to see data for individual databases.
FTP Accounts - FTP accounts allow you to access your website’s files through a protocol called FTP. You will need a third-party FTP program to access your files. You can log into via FTP by entering your domain as your FTP host and the username and password of the account you wish to log into.
4. Now let’s see how to create a sub-domain using cPanel. Go into the Domains section and click the icon named sub-domain. Subdomains are URLs for different sections of your website. They use your main domain name and a prefix.
Add-on Domains - An addon domain allows visitors to reach a subdomain of your site by typing the addon domain’s URL into a browser. This means that you can host additional domains from your account, if allowed by your hosting provider. Addon Domains Subdomains are relative to your account’s home directory.
