cPanel is a user-friendly control panel that simplifies the management of your website and shared server. It allows you to manage your website files, create MySQL databases, manage domains, FTP accounts, email accounts, SSL certificates and more. cPanel allows users to create websites using a variety of content management systems (CMS) including WordPress, Drupal, Magento and Joomla, monitor disk space usage, check server logs, and edit website files through cPanel.
Web hosting is the infrastructure that makes your website available on the internet, while cPanel is software that makes it easy to use and manage the hosting service. You can manage your shared server without a control panel, however it is not recommended unless you have some serious technical expertise.
Your website is stored on our shared hosting servers and is identified with a unique DNS address. Essentially your domain name is mapped to its own IP address that allows people around Australia and the world to view your website.
You shouldn’t have to wait to get your website up and running. Our new cPanel hosting accounts are activated the same day, typically within minutes of purchase.
Your cPanel login URL can be found in the ‘Welcome Email’ which was sent when you created your account. You can view all past emails sent to you from the billing panel. View our step by step instructions to access your cPanel.

An SSL certificate is a digital certificate that authenticates a website’s identity and enables an encrypted connection. Ultimately, it provides a secure environment for both visitors and site owners. AutoSSL is a part of cPanel and solves the tedious issue of manual SSL installation and renewal. And you can rest assured that your coverage will never lapse, because at expiration time a new, free SSL is requested and automatically installed. AutoSSL provides a DV Sectigo certificate created and managed within the cPanel account.
All hosting accounts are backed up on a daily basis. The Jetbackup feature within cPanel allows self-service one click restore functionality of your website files from the last 7 days. Alternatively you can back-up your files whenever you like using the same Jetbackup feature.
