Accessing the Control Panel for the First Time

There are several ways to access the control panel:

 

http://www.yourdomain.com:2222  You can access the control panel through any domain or subdomain by putting :2222 after the address.

 

http://www.yourdomain.com/config  You can access the control panel by adding /config to your domain or subdomain address.

 

http://192.168.0.1:2222 or http://192.168.0.1/config  You can access the control panel through any IP address allocated to the server.  This is useful when your domain transfer has not yet propagated.

   

A window (similar to the one pictured on the right) will appear.  Enter your username and password.  Once signed into the control panel you should do two things.  

 

First, click on the "Message System" link at the top-right of the page. Important messages about your account may come through the message system, so we recommend that you enter your e-mail address at the bottom of the screen and check the checkbox.  If you do this, the control panel will e-mail you when a message comes in.

 

 

Second, return to the main menu and click on the "Statistics / Logs" icon.  About halfway down the screen there will be a box to enter your e-mail address.  Confirm that the e-mail address in the box is accurate.  If not, change it and click on the "Save" button.  It is important to have a valid e-mail address in this box because the control panel will e-mail you whenever your account is close to going over its bandwidth limit.
