Control Panel

We reccomend you don't use Control panel to upload your files onto your account. You should use ftp, dreamweaver, frontpage instead as Control Panel only uploads 1 file at a time and would take too much time to upload the whole website.

Control Panel is generally used for managing your hosting account (not uploading).
Through it you'll be able to add/remove user/email accounts, add/remove subdomains, manage your email settings (email forwards, autoresponders etc).
Full step-by-step instructions on using control panel can be found in the help files of the control panel once you've logged in (Left hand side).

To log in go to: www.yourdomain.com/admin/ and enter the user/login info supplied in your account activation email.
