The cPanel interface contains comprehensive documentation within the various features.

 

Click on ‘control panel login’ at the top of this page. Enter your domain and click ‘go’.

You will need your account username and password, that would have been email to you upon setup of your hosting account.

FTP

All new accounts will receive an email with your main FTP login details.

We advise that you use a secure mode of FTP (FTP-SSL Explicit Auth).

If you have trouble connecting you may need to toggle the ‘Use Passive (PASV)’ setting in your FTP application.

Your website resides in the ‘public_html’ folder.

 

If you don’t have your login details, or have any problems, contact MacNet Technologies on 07 579 4522.

Secure Sockets Layer

All hosting accounts have access to a shared SSL certificate.

You can access your site via ssl using a combination of your hosting server name and your account user name.

https://<your server name>/~<your account name>/

eg. https://secure.macnet.co.nz/~joebloggs/yoursecurepage

(note the tilde in front of your account name)

 

To use your own SSL Certificate, your web site will need it’s own dedicated IP address. We have these available in limited quatities.

 

If you require your own SSL certificate, or have any problems, contact MacNet Technologies on 07 579 4522.
