How to log in and log out of cPanel

This article describes how to log in and log out of cPanel so you can manage your GigaCloud Hosting web site.

LOGGING IN TO CPANEL

There are two ways to log in to a cPanel account:

  • Access cPanel through the GigaCloud Hosting Client Zone. 
  • Access cPanel directly.
  •  
Method #1: Access cPanel through the GigaCloud Hosting Client Zone:

 

  1. Log in to the Client Zone.
  2. On the menu bar, click Services, and then click MY SERVICES.
  3. Under My Products & Services, locate your hosting package, and then click Manage.
  4. 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:

 

  1. 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 use one of the following addresses:
    • http://cpanel.example.com or http://www.example.com/cpanel, where example.com represents your domain name.


    The cPanel login page appears:


  2. In the Username text box, type your GigaCloud Hosting account username.

    If you do not know your cPanel username and password, you can view them in the Account Info email you received wgen signed up GigaCloud Hosting.
  3. In the Password text box, type your GigaCloud Hosting account password.
  4. 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:

    1. Click the Logout icon.
      This icon has a different location and appearance depending upon the active cPanel theme. In most cPanel themes, the Logout icon is located in the top-right corner.
