What Is Cpanel And How To Use It
Cpanel is going to be our main tool when managing our webpage and content in it. We can use it to upload files using Web panel or create FTP accounts to do so remotely, create our e-mail and adjust various access settings to our webpage.
Other information and features of Cpanel
CPanel holds lots of configuration options, features and applications you can install. One of these that you should know about is Zone Editor, this is an area that you can setup DNS records for adding more advanced things to your domain. If you have a service or feature that tells you to edit DNS records, this is where you will see them and create them.
Zone Editor:
Click on Zone Editor in cPanel which will bring up a new page which will show the domain or domains that are under cPanel control, here you click on Manage. This will bring up all the DNS records for your domain, this is where you can click on Add Record and add any record that you might need, there are several default ones setup as well to help your hosting function, if you do not know where a record does it is highly recommended not to play around with them.
FTP Accounts:
This function allows you to connect to your domain through File Transfer Protocol, now this might not be needed in a lot of situations, but this is very handy for file management on your hosting. You can setup a username/password to use with a 3rd Party FTP program. It's as simple as going to FTP Accounts in your cPanel and creating a new user, you select the username and password also the home directory for the user, so this is where they initially have access when logging in, if you are looking for the user to see the html area right away you would set to sub directory of /public_html/
