CPanel (Control Panel)
back to main support page
If you don't know a term we are using please take a look at our 'What is...?' page.

If you want to download the complete manual about our control panel click here.
Note: file is rather large (748 KB) and you well need Acrobat Reader from Adobe.

What is Cpanel?
CPanel is the web interface to administrate your web site. You can access your control panel at:
or you may use
http://your ip adderss/cpanel/
The first one will not be active until your domain has been transferred to our nameservers. You will be asked to enter your user / password to gain access to your configuration.

FTP Accounts
Accounts Used for managing access accounts to your web space. The creation of an FTP account will allow users to log into a sub directory from your main account without gaining access to your main accounts. Sessions show any users that are currently logged into your domain. Settings allow you to modify access to your anonymous FTP site.

We have numerous customizable cgi scripts that have been pre-installed on the server for you to use with your own account. The only thing you'll need to do is select the script you are interested in using, select the colors, style etc., and click the "Make HTML" button. You can then paste the HTML output into any of your HTML files to use that system cgi program.

System Java works the exact same was as cgi see above for usage.

Web Page Protection
Web page protection is used to limit access to any directory to users who enter a user/password combo. To protect a directory within your account click on the directory, enter a user / password for access and click "Add". You can add as many users as you wish to this file. This protection is for resources accessed via the WEB only, this will not create an FTP user!

Email control panel allows instant creation of e-mail POP3, forwards, and aliases.

Access Stats
Provides access to many different programs that will analyze your access logs and show you more information about your web sites traffic. Take a look at this regularly, it will help you understanding what the people using your web site want and where you will have to make additional efforts.

Allows you to change your main accounts password. Change your passwords on a regulary basis.

File Manager
Allows you to modify the files in your web site in real-time via a web based interface. You can perform many commands such as chmod as well as actually edit the file and save it directly to the web server.

Java Chat
Allows you to access your personal java chat server and supplies the code for you to use the product on your own site.

Handlers / Types
You will probably never need to use this portion of your control panel. A MIME type is basically what tells the web server that a .html document is a web page, and that a .gif doc is a gif image etc. If you would like to configure a custom MIME type such as making .pictures a gif image file you would enter it here.

Error Editor
This section lets you customize the errors that your users will see instead of the generic server errors. You could setup a 404 page to redirect users to your main web site instead of the default dead document
