The cPanel Home Screen

For cPanel version 11.32

The cPanel home screen provides access to all of your cPanel functions.

You can reach the cPanel home screen from anywhere in the interface by clicking the Home button at the top left corner of the screen, or the Home link at the bottom of the screen. From the Home screen, you can reach any of cPanel's features.

You can change the order in which the feature-related boxes, such as Mail and Files, appear on your home screen. This can be useful for organizing the cPanel interface to better suit your needs. To change the location of a box:

  1. Click and hold the box's heading bar.
  2. Drag it to its new location.

The information boxes can also be minimized or “hidden” by clicking the icon in the top right corner of the heading bar.

To hide a feature box:

  • Click the arrow at the top right side of the box. This will collapse it into a heading bar.

1. Help

Clicking the Help button (or the Help link at the bottom of the screen) opens a pop-up window with information regarding the feature you have accessed within the cPanel interface. The contents of the Help menu change, depending on where you are in the interface.

Help should be consulted any time you have trouble using a feature in cPanel. The Help link offers 3 options at all times:

  • Video Tutorials — Click to view a list of the video tutorials available from cPanel.
    Note: You will not hear sound while viewing the videos.
  • Full Interface Documentation — Click to access this documentation.
  • Contact Customer Support — Click to access a form for contacting customer support. You can also click the Contact link at the bottom of the page.

Note: This documentation may also be found by clicking the Documentation link at the bottom of every cPanel screen.

2. Logout

The Logout button at the top right corner of the main screen, and the Logout link at the bottom of the screen, allow you to log out of your cPanel account.

Note: Be sure to click Logout after accessing your cPanel account from any computer where access is shared.

3. Find

The Find function can help you quickly locate a feature of cPanel. Simply type a keyword into the Find box on the left side of the screen. The menus on the right will automatically filter to show the results, as seen in the screenshot below.

To show all features of cPanel, click the ‘X’ button to the right of the Find text box.
