Linux Hosting (cPanel) Help

Linux Hosting Guided Tour Part 2: WordPress

The next stop on our Guided Tour of your new Linux Hosting account is a visit to WordPress, which you installed during account setup. If you didn't install WordPress, no worries—we'll show you how to do that at the end of the tour. Or, if you weren't planning to use WordPress, you can go on to the next stop on the tour, cPanel.

How to get to WordPress

In your account Dashboard, in the Websites section, select Admin.

WordPress opens in a new window or tab. The WordPress "home page" is also called a Dashboard:

What can you do in the WordPress Dashboard?

Everything! The WordPress Dashboard is where you build your entire website, including:

  • Editing content on any page in the site
  • Adding pages, posts, and media to the site
  • Selecting themes and templates
  • Viewing and managing visitor comments
  • Activating or deactivating plugins
  • Learning about WordPress news
  • Editing your WordPress user profile

Our next stop on the tour: cPanel

Let's take a look at cPanel, the app you use to manage many advanced website settings.
