Title: cPanel Hosting Basics: A Comprehensive Guide
In this article, we'll explain the basic procedures and steps to use your cPanel hosting account with Domain India. We'll cover important information like usernames, passwords, accessing your website's control panel, and uploading files.
Username and Passwords
Your username and password were provided in the welcome email you received upon account activation with DOMAIN REGISTRATION INDIA PRIVATE LIMITED. These credentials are used to access your FTP (File Transfer Protocol) and cPanel (control panel) for your website. Make sure to keep them secure and confidential.
DNS Propagation Time
When you update your domain to use our name servers, it can take anywhere from 48 to 72 hours for all worldwide DNS (Domain Name System) records to reflect the changes. During this period, we recommend using the IP address provided in your welcome email to access your website until you can verify that your domain is being served from our servers.
Accessing Your Website Control Panel (cPanel)
To access your website's control panel (cPanel), simply navigate to the following URL:
Replace "www.your_domain.com" with your actual domain hosted with Domain India or the server IP address assigned to you in the welcome email.
Uploading Files to Your Website
To make your files publicly accessible on the web, upload them to the "public_html" directory in your account using an FTP client or the File Manager in your cPanel. Please be cautious not to delete any files created by the system, as this may cause your account to stop functioning properly.
Here's a step-by-step guide on uploading files to your "public_html" directory:
- Log in to your cPanel using the credentials provided in your welcome email.
- Click on "File Manager" under the "Files" section.
- Navigate to the "public_html" folder.
- Click on "Upload" in the top menu to upload your files.
- Once your files have been uploaded, they will be accessible on your website.
By following these steps, you'll be able to manage and maintain your cPanel hosting account with Domain India effectively.
