Accessing Important Areas of Your Website Hosting

If you have a brand new domain name, or your domain name is currently propagating from an old host to Morpheus Hosting’s servers, you can access your control panel, website, and webmail by using the i.p. address of your website.  The i.p. address will have been e-mailed to you when you set up your account.

Once your domain name has propagated to our servers, you will be able to use your domain name.  The following example uses “yourdomain” in place of the actual domain name you have purchased.

 

Hosting Access During Domain
Name Propagation
Hosting Access After Domain Name Propagation
Replace the example i.p. address below with the i.p. address of your website.   this will have been delivered in the e-mail sent to you when you set up your account. the following example uses “yourdomain” in place of the actual domain name you have purchased:
cPanel login:  http://233.233.233.33/cpanel http://www.yourdomain.com/cpanel
Website:  http://233.233.233.33/~username http://www.yourdomain.com
Webmail login:   http://233.233.233.33/webmail http://www.yourdomain.com/webmail

Your FTP Username and Password is provided in the e-mail we sent to you when you purchased your website hosting from our website.

You can use any ftp software client to load your website onto your website hosting space.  A great ftp client software is Filezilla.  If you do not already have ftp software, you can download Filezilla FTP and install it on your computer for free.

Your FTP host name is ftp.yourdomain.com
