    How To Access Your cPanel

    The cPanel is a place from where you can upload/delete/edit/publish website, you can upload/create/edit/delete database, you can manage domains, organize web files, create email accounts, and more.

    Here we are guiding you step-by-step, how you can upload your website from your cPanel. Even if someone else uploads your website you will have at least an idea that where your website is actually located.

    • Login to your cPanel via the URL provided to you by your web hosting provider. It will be similar to "https://www.cpanel.example.com". Instead of "example.com" there will be your website domain. Let's say your domain is "www.technology.com", the cPanel URL will be "www.cpanel.technology.com".
    • Enter your cPanel Username & Password.
    • Click Login.

    How To Buy Domain And Hosting In Pakistan - Step By Step 21

    • Click the "File Manager" icon.

    How To Buy Domain And Hosting In Pakistan - Step By Step 22

    • Click or double click the "public_html" folder/icon.
    • The "public_html" is the root directory where you upload all your website files and folders. In other words each page of your website loads from "public_html".

    How To Create Your Business Emails

    An email linked with a domain address is called business email or private email. Let's say there is a domain "www.spaceresearch.com". You can create business emails such as "info@spaceresearch.com", "spaceresearch@spaceresearch.com", "hr@spaceresearch.com", "john@spaceresearch.com" etc.

    There are many benefits for creating emails on private email server such as security, privacy, ownership etc. From professional perspectives the domain address in email creates a trust, like you are officially representing a business, website or a company. 
     
    Most of the professionals who own a website or business use their business emails.
    • Login to your cPanel, as we have shown in the above section "How To Access Your cPanel".
    • In your Dashboard under the "EMAIL" section click "Email Accounts" link.
     
    How To Buy Domain And Hosting In Pakistan - Step By Step 25

    • There will be a one default email account that you use to login to your website's admin section.
    • There is also a limit for creating email accounts. In a basic hosting plan you can create 10 business email accounts. If you have a large business and hundreds of employees you can request your web hosting provider to update the package or increase the number of email accounts.  
    • Click the "+CREATE" button to create an email account.
     
    How To Buy Domain And Hosting In Pakistan - Step By Step 25

    • Always remember that email should not be complicated, should be easily spelled, typed and recalled.
    • In the "Security" section choose the "Set password now" and enter a secure password that you can remember.
    • In the "Storage Space" choose the size required for your emails. You have two options here i.e Fixed size and Unlimited Size. You can change the size anytime depending on your requirements. 1024MB is equal to 1GB.

    • The CHECK MAIL option is the link to your webmail's mailbox where you can Open/Compose/Delete/Manage mails, as you will see in the next step. You can also open your mailbox by your webmail URL such as "https://www.webmail.example.com". The "example.com" will be replaced with your domain.
    • The MANAGE option is for Editing your email like Password, Storage Size etc.
    • The CONNECT DEVICES option shows you the configuration to setup Mail Clients such as MS Outllook, Mailbird etc. The benefit of using mail clients is that you don't have to login to your webmail interface again-and-again to check emails instead you will directly send/receive emails in your email client.

    • The SMTP(Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) is used for sending emails. We use it for "Outgoing Server".
