Following my tutorial on adding Google Adsense Ads and Addynamo to mobilepress, i realised a couple of bloggers do not know how to access their blog or website control panel as the tutorial involves accessing their control panel and editing your website or blog files.
What is Control Panel?
For a pro-blogger, the word ‘control panel‘ would not be a new phrase but for a newbie who is just starting off to understanding how blogs and website operates, i would say welcome to my blog ;).
Control Panel in its literal meaning, have to deal with the starting point or should i call me Admin Area. It can be seen from different angels depending on what its actually relating to.
In the area of blogs or website, control panel deals basically with where your site contents are primarily stored, yep you can call it your site house but people generally see it as hosting. Yeeeeeeees! I know you might have heard about hosting, well thats what Control Panel generally is.
As you know, a self hosted blog like WordPress can’t stand on its own without an hosting account so also is a website, forum and other platforms that require some sort of scripts been installed in its hosting control panel.
How Do I Access My control Panel?
First let me point out something here, not all blogging platforms require hosting or control panel, for example blogger, blogger is a blogging platform that is self hosted on Google, that is, you do not need an hosting account to operate blogger rather you only need a custom domain name and that is if you sole desire. Hence, if you are currently blogging using blogger then there obviously no use trying to access any control panel as you can do whatever via your blogger dashboard.
For website, blogs, forum and other self hosted platform users, you can access your Hosting Control panel by simply entering into your browser address bar yoursiteaddress/cpanel or you can also use the format cpanel.yoursite.com
did you get that?
Ooooophs! Your Login Details right?
Your hosting company should have provided you with those details, if you have forgotten it then contact your hosting company asap.
Hope this helps?
