Sign in securely
How to sign into your Hosting Control Panel
Only ever sign into your Hosting Control Panel using a URL that begins with HTTPS.
HTTPS signifies that the website you are visiting is protected by SSL.
In other words, traffic to and from the website is encrypted during transit. If intercepted it cannot be read.
cPanel Login Screen
The image below shows the cPanel control panel login screen.
You will see this screen or something similar when you visit the control panel URL supplied by your hosting company.
The login screen will look different if, for example, the hosting company uses the Plesk control panel.
Avoid compromising your website security by using different usernames and passwords for:
- signing into your Hosting Control Panel,
- accessing the server by FTP (File Transfer Protocol),
- signing into your Joomla! CMS website.
