Logging In and Getting Around the Cpanel
Your cpanel may look different depending on what host or if they’ve upgraded the cpanel. But the components you’ll need will all be here!
How to Login to Cpanel: Usually to login to cpanel, you’ll put in the domain name + /cpanel. When hosting on our hosting plan use GoMediaMarketing.com/cpanel.
Existing Live Website While Building New Site
If a site needs to stay “live” until I complete building it, I’ll purchase a temporary domain name to build a website then “migrate” the files later to the real domain. Migrate: means move the files.
Host Gator will do it for us, or we can copy the files ourselves to the new domain.
Even in this case I put an “In Construction” page on the home page and make the site un searchable by Google.
Brand New Website
If the site is new, I put up an “In Construction” page and build the site on pages that are not linked to home page. Once complete I make the home page the correct page.
