How To Access cPanel - What You Need / Where To Find cPanel

This article will explain how-to access the cPanel for your account.



What You Need

You need to be able to log into your account to perform this task. You will be required to know:

  • The username for your account - This is your cPanel username or the domain on the account.
  • The password for your account - This is set when you create the account, and it can also be reset later if you forget.

    Tip! If you have forgotten your password, please see How to Reset Your Login Password.

Accessing the cPanel

Note: Legacy accounts will feature a horizontal navigation bar at the top of the screen, while Bluerock account users will see a vertical navigation menu on the left-hand side of the screen. If you are still unsure what interface your account uses, please see Bluerock vs. Legacy.

Bluerock
