Exploring the Basics of cPanel

For those who may not be familiar with cPanel, this particular platform can be thought of as a "hub" for all of the major functions that keep a website up and running. Using cPanel, you can accomplish a variety of critical tasks, including setting up email addresses, uploading various files to your server, routing and connection domains, building and managing databases and more.

Where cPanel becomes particularly useful is for small- to medium-sized business owners who are overseeing elements of their own IT infrastructure. Thanks to the macro-level approach provided by cPanel, network administrators can make the necessary changes and adjustments to their IT systems at a rapid rate of speed.

cPanel is not a direct product of GoDaddy. In fact, you can access cPanel through a variety of hosting platforms. cPanel can also be used as a standalone product by purchasing a user license through the product website. That being said, the fact that cPanel can be automatically integrated into a company's web architecture simply by signing up for GoDaddy's web services is a priceless convenience.

Finally, click the "Manage" button displayed on the page to gain full access to your cPanel interface.

From here, you will be able to access all of the cPanel functions you need to effectively manage your web platform.
