After you log in, the start-up wizard appears. This wizard functions as a guide to help you set up a new account. If the start-up wizard does not appear on the first login, or if it is necessary to reconfigure your account, you can click the Getting Started Wizard icon in the Preferences area of the cPanel interface to access the start-up wizard.
These pages contain information on an array of topics (for example disk directories, getting files to your website, the File Manager, WHM Web Disk, and FTP Accounts). If this is your first website, we strongly recommend that you read these pages to better understand website management.
Webmail allows you to access your email accounts through a web browser (for example, Mozilla Firefox®, Google Chrome® or Safari®). When you check your email on the web, rather than through an email application on your computer, you can easily access your email account from any computer with an internet connection and a web browser.
To use webmail, perform the following steps:
The email account will be opened through your browser. The webmail client will then retrieve all read and unread messages that are associated with your email account.
If you do not wish to first access cPanel, you may log in to webmail directly. Enter
in your web browser, where
yourdomain.com is your actual domain name. After you provide your username and password, you can select a webmail client.
This function allows you to define the email address(es) at which the server should send you updates. These email addresses will function as the main contact point to notify you of new information about your website. We recommend that you use an email address that is not affiliated with your website, as this could be useful if you experience problems with your website’s email.
To configure these preferences:
cPanel offers several styles for you to choose from. This includes a style that is optimized for mobile web browsers.
To change your style, click the Switch Style to ... button that corresponds to the style you wish to use.
After you have finished the setup for your cPanel account, click the Home button in the upper left corner of the screen to return to the home screen and begin to use your cPanel account.
