Set up your account
After you purchase a hosting plan, you need to set it up before you can use it to host your website.
Setting up a cPanel shared hosting account changes your domain name's DNS records. This means your existing website and email addresses might stop working. If you're unsure if this will impact your website, please contact our support department.
- Log in to your GoDaddy account.
- Click Web Hosting.
- Next to the hosting account you want to use, click Manage.
- Complete the on-screen fields, and then click Finish.
You can use the New cPanel username and New cPanel password you create to log directly into cPanel at http://coolexample.com/cpanel, where coolexample.com is your domain name.
