Accessing Linux Hosting accounts
This article describes how to log in and log out of cPanel so you can manage your XauZit Cloud web site. We’ll also give you an introduction for what cPanel is.
There are two ways to log in to a cPanel account:
- Access cPanel through the XauZit Cloud Customer Portal. This is the preferred method, because you can access cPanel without having to remember a special URL or domain name.
- Access cPanel directly.
Method #1: Access cPanel through the XauZit Cloud Customer Portal
To access cPanel through the Customer Portal, follow these steps:
Log in to the Customer Portal.
On the menu bar, click SERVICES, and then click MY SERVICES:
Under My Products & Services, locate your hosting package, and then click Active:
In the Actions sidebar, click Login to cPanel:
In a separate window, the Customer Portal automatically logs you in to your cPanel account.
Method #2: Access cPanel directly
To log in to cPanel directly, follow these steps:
In your web browser, type the cPanel address for your web site. The address is either http://www.example.com:2082 or https://www.example.com:2083, where example.com is your domain name.
Alternatively, you can following addresses:
- http://www.example.com/cpanel, where example.com represents your domain name.
- To access cPanel without using your domain name, you can use https://server.xauzit.com:2083, where server represents the server name for your account.
The cPanel login page appears:
In the Username text box, type your XauZit Cloud account username.
If you do not know your cPanel username and password, you can view them in the XauZit Cloud Customer Portal.
In the Password text box, type your XauZit Cloud account password.
Click Log in. When you enter the correct username and password, the cPanel home screen appears.
LOGGING OUT OF CPANEL
You should log out whenever you have finished using cPanel, because this notifies the web server that you have finished your session. If you do not log out, the server automatically closes your session after a set period of time. However, there is a small possibility that an attacker could exploit the open connection before this automatic logout occurs.
To log out of cPanel, follow these steps:
In the top-right corner, click LOGOUT:
