cPanel Servers and Installed Software
This site is designed to assist you with using your hosting account on a Linux server with cPanel. cPanel is an industry leading front-end control panel which end users can use to manage nearly every function associated with hosting a successful website. From basic email account installation and site uploads, to scripting and 3rd party software installs, you will find most of the answers here along with full motion tutorials to guide you step by step.
Where Do I Start?
The first thing you will want to do is follow the instructions in your welcome email which you will receive after you have set up your account. This email will contain information specific to your hosting account like your user name and password, how to access cPanel and a set of nameservers that must be configured at the domain registration site that you used. It is extremely important that this step be completed if this is a brand new site. Your website will not work until this is configured correctly. If you have an existing website that you are transferring to our servers, there are other decisions that need to be made. Please contact the 24-7 Webs sales department for assistance or options as required. Their contact information is included in the welcome email. Often they can arrange to transfer a site for you so there is no downtime or lost business.
New to This?
If you are completely new to setting up a website and this is all gibberish to you, fear not. We’re here to help. After all everyone has to start somewhere.
First: Get yourself a domain name. A domain name is that fancy website address everyone else has. To get one go to any domain registrar and start your search. We recommend NicFair Domain Names. You can access the site by clicking on their name. A new window will open in your browser.
Next: You will need to get a web hosting account. The web hosting company will sell you a portion of a specialized computer called a web server for your exclusive use. Since we own this site we recommend ourselves. Get your web hosting account from 24-7 Webs by clicking here.
