Getting Started with cPanel

If you're new to hosting or cPanel, this article will help you get started.

1. Set Up Your Hosting

To set up your hosting, go to, and then log in to your GoDaddy account. From there, click Set Up under your account and follow the instructions.

2. Upload Your Files

The easiest way to do this is to use cPanel's built-in File Manager. To access it, in the Files section, click File Manager.

Once you've opened it, make sure you Upload the site's files to the public_html directory.

3. Preview Your Site

To make sure everything's working properly, you can preview your site by going to http://[your hosting account's IP]/~[your cPanel username]/

You can find your hosting account's IP on the cPanel tab; it's labeled Shared IP Address.

4. Set up Email

Now that you have your site situated, you can go to the Email tab, and then set up email accounts. After you set them up, you can check them by using one of the options from the More menu next to the address.
