Linux Hosting (cPanel) Help

Understanding Linux Hosting with cPanel

Linux hosting, the most popular web hosting platform, offers features commonly used by web designers. cPanel, a hosting control panel, uses a graphical interface to access most of those features. To get your website up and running, set up your Linux Hosting account with cPanel.

Basic steps to use Linux hosting

  • Use a FTP client to upload your files. Your hosting account uses public_html as the root directory for your primary domain.
  • If you don't have a website yet, install a Content Management System (CMS), such as WordPress, to build your website and manage its content.
  • After you have a website up and running, set up backups so you don't have to worry about losing your content. GoDaddy can back up your website for you or you can set up your own backups.
  • To log in to cPanel directly, browse to http://myDomainName/cpanel, where myDomainName is your domain and its suffix, like coolexample.com. You'll need the cPanel login and Password from your initial cPanel setup. You can find the cPanel login in the Dashboard for your Linux Hosting account.
