Accessing your hosting control panel

This article discusses how to access the control panel for your hosting account. The control panel enables you to quickly and easily administer your account through a convenient web browser interface.

The control panel you use depends on the type of hosting account that you have.

Managed hosting accounts

For Linux-managed hosting accounts, you use cPanel to administer your site. For information about how to access the cPanel control panel, please see this article.
