Understanding Linux Hosting with cPanel

While Linux website hosting is the platform that allows you to get your website online, cPanel is the graphical interface that you’ll use to access these features.

If you need to get your website up online, you’ll need to set up cPanel with your Linux Hosting account first.

Basic steps to using Linux hosting

  • To upload your website files, you’ll need to use an FTP client.
  • If you don’t have a website yet, you’ll need to install a Content Management System (CMS) to create one. Luckily, we have a selection of free one-click install apps available, including for WordPress, Joomla and SilverStripe.
  • Once your website is online, make sure you set up regular backups so that you never lose any important content.
