- Domain Name Servers (DNS) are the Internet's equivalent of a phone book. They maintain a directory of domain names and translate them to Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. This is necessary because, although domain names are easy for people to remember, computers or machines, access websites based on IP addresses.
- Web hosting is a necessity for any website — it is the physical location of your website on the Internet, an online storage center that houses the information, images, video, and other content that comprises your website. Web hosting service providers maintain the server where the data associated with your website resides, and also manage the technology that makes your website connect to the Internet.
- cPanel is a Linux-based web hosting control panel that provides a graphical interface and automation tools designed to simplify the process of hosting a website.
- To add MX records in cPanel, please follow these steps:
1.Log into your cPanel account.
2.In the "Mail" section, click on the "MX Entry" icon.
3.Select a domain from the drop-down menu.
4.In the "Add New Record" section, set the priority for the new MX entry, keeping in mind that 0 is the highest priority.
5.In the "Destination" text box, type the hostname of the new mail exchanger. This must be a fully qualified domain name, you cannot specify an IP address here.
6.Click on the "Add New Record" button to save your changes.
- To delete an MX entry, please follow these steps:
1.Click on the "Delete" button next to the appropriate MX entry.
2.Confirm that the entry should be deleted by clicking the "Delete" button again.
NOTE: You will need to delete the existing MX record before adding your new MX record.
- An FTP account is used for uploading and managing files on your website.
An FTP account is automatically created in cPanel when you sign up for hosting, create a cPanel, create an addon domain or subdomain
or enable anonymous FTP. So, by default, you already have an FTP account in your cPanel. Use your cPanel username and password to
log into it.
You can create new FTP accounts to give access to other users without giving them your cPanel login credentials. For each additional FTP account created, you can also give each user different levels of access by assigning the user to a specific directory. :
1.Log into cPanel.
2.In the Files section, click FTP Accounts.
3.In the Login field, type the name of the FTP user. A full FTP user name will always be formatted as email@example.com. You cannot create an FTP account without your domain name in it, regardless of the publish destination.
4.In the Password fields, enter a password which will be used to authenticate this FTP account.
5.Set a quota for the FTP account. Quota is the maximum amount of bandwidth the FTP user may use. If you leave the quota as unlimited, the FTP user will have the ability to use the total amount of bandwidth for the cPanel account.
6.In the Directory field, cPanel will auto-populate an assumed directory based on the FTP username, but that is normally incorrect. So, we recommend erasing everything after public_html/ and providing the directory you would like the user to access. If you erase everything and type a single "/", the user will have access to your home directory (anything outside of the public_html folder).
7. Click Create.
That's it. You now have an FTP account created specially for your web developer so that he can access it using an FTP client. Just give him your hosting package IP address and FTP username and password you just created for him and he's all good to go.
- To create an email account:
1.Log into cPanel.
2.In the Mail section, click Email Accounts.
3.In the Email field, type the name you want and select the domain name from the adjacent drop-down menu.
4.Fill in the desired Email and Password
5.Set a Mailbox Quota.
6.Click Create Account.
> To check your email, you may use the webmail interface by opening a new tab on your browser and entering the URL - webmail.your-domain.com (eg - If your domain name is abc.com, enter the URL - webmail.abc.com). Once in, you are all set to use your brand new email address.
- Creating a sub-domain on your Linux Hosting is super easy with your cPanel Panel. Here's how you do it:
1.Log into your cPanel.
2.Go to the Domains section and click on Subdomains
3.Type in the name of the subdomain and select the domain to create it under. It will automatically create a folder for the subdomain in your public_html folder
4.Click the Create button. You will then see a message stating it "has been created."
That's it. You can now upload content to your sub-domain using FTP or Cpanel in the path mentioned that was specified in Document Root
- When you create a database, many users are unaware that there are several other items that you need to do as well.
The new database creation process actually involves: A. Creating a database B. Creating a database user
C. Giving your database user access to work with your database.
1.Log into your cPanel.
2.Click the MySQL Database Wizard under the Databases heading
3.Next to New Database enter a name for your database and click Next Step
4.Next to Username enter a username.
5.Enter a password next to Password, enter it again for Password (Again) and then click Create User
6.On the next page, you'll assign privileges for the user to the database. Check the box next to All Privileges and then click Next Step.
- Sometimes it's necessary to upload files to your cPanel account. This can be easily accomplished by using the File Manager
within your cPanel account. If you are unfamiliar with File Manager in cPanel, please see our article on Using File Manager in cPanel.
1.Log into your cPanel.
2.On the home screen under the files section choose "File Manager".
3.Next, choose where you'd like to start in. For this example, we're going to use the Web Root option - which is the public_html folder. Since we're uploading to the public_html folder we do not need to navigate anywhere else.
4.Select "Upload" from the icons at the top.
5.Navigate to the file you want to upload on your local computer by selecting the "Choose File" button.
6.Select the file and click "Open". Once the file is finished uploading you can click on the link in the cetner of the screen to retrun to the folder you uploaded the file to.
7.Now, in a web browser, we can visit the file and verify it uploaded to the location correctly.

FAQsThings People are Asking
- Spam refers to junk email that’s sent out in mass quantities.
On average, three-fourths of the email that’s sent every day is spam.
Spammers find email addresses in a variety of ways, most commonly by searching for email addresses listed on websites and by means of computer viruses and hacking.
They can then sell the lists of addresses to other spammers, and continue to pester people with an endless amount of unwanted emails.
- A MySQL database, like all other types of databases, is used to keep track of a website or software’s data.
The technical term for MySQL is a relational database management system, or RDBMS. MySQL is a software program that runs at all times on a server and gives other programs access to the information it maintains.
This information is stored in databases. A database is made up of tables. Each table is structured into fields that can contain a specific type of information; some fields can contain only numbers, while others can only contain dates, etc.
- FTP – File Transfer Protocol – is one way for you to transfer files to and from your hosting account.
Unlike HTTP, which is meant for accessing websites, FTP is designed to transfer files.
Because of this, using an FTP client to transfer files can be faster and more reliable than doing so inside your control panel. An FTP client is software designed to work with the FTP protocol.
One free FTP client we can recommend is called FileZilla (shown here). You can download it at filezilla-project.org. On the left, we can see our local files and folders, while the right side shows the content on the server we are connected to.
