Introduction to cPanel

Your web hosting account on UNF Faculty Domains is managed through a control panel interface called cPanel. cPanel is an industry-standard tool for managing your domain and hosting. Using this tool, you can do all kind of thing with your web space including the following:

  • install web applications
  • create email accounts or create subdomains (if you purchase a personal domain)
  • view and manage files in your space
  • create and configure FTP accounts
  • review access logs for your site
  • manually manage and configure databases

All you need to do is login at the top right of the page at domains.unf.edu (with your UNF N number and password) and your website’s cPanel will automatically be displayed upon login. If you don’t see the cPanel you need to sign up.

The cPanel interface is divided into sections, making it easy to locate the different tools and services available to you.

Many of the tutorials on this site walk you through particular tasks in cPanel, but we encourage you to explore on your own, as well.
