cPanel is an easy to use web interface for managing all aspects of your hosting account; from adding new domains and email accounts, to more advanced features like editing DNS records and configuring spam filtering. cPanel is third party software which CanvasHost pays a liscening fee for on all of our shared servers (with the exception of our one Windows server).

There are several ways to access your cPanel account...

Click the green 'Manage' button just to the Right of the product you want to work with.

Now you will see a menu listed on the Left with the option to log into cPanel as well as some other helpful shortcuts.

You will also notice more shortcuts near the bottom of the page to quickly access specific tool within your cPanel.
