How to Setup cPanel

Setting up cPanel involves the following steps:

  1. Purchase cPanel license: You will need to purchase a cPanel license from a cPanel distributor or hosting provider. A cPanel license allows you to use the cPanel software on your server.
  2. Set up a server: You will need to set up a server with your preferred operating system (Linux or Windows) and install the necessary software. If you’re using Linux, you can use a distribution like CentOS or Ubuntu. If you’re using Windows, you can use a version like Windows Server 2019.
  3. Install cPanel: Once your server is set up, you can install cPanel on it. You can either install cPanel manually or use a script to automate the process. If you’re using a hosting provider, they may provide a one-click installation option for cPanel.
  4. Configure cPanel: After installing cPanel, you will need to configure it. This involves setting up your server’s hostname, time zone, and other settings. You can do this through the WHM (Web Host Manager) interface, which is accessible by logging in to cPanel.
  5. Set up accounts: Once cPanel is configured, you can set up accounts for your users. This involves creating a username and password for each user and assigning them to a package that determines their resource limits.
  6. Configure features: You can configure various features of cPanel, such as email, DNS, and backups. You can do this through the WHM interface or the cPanel interface for each individual user.

That’s it! With cPanel set up, you can now manage your server and provide hosting services to your users.
