Hostgator Cpanel Web Hosting Tutorial

In this post, I shall be going through with you the user friendly cpanel web hosting features in my Hostgator account.

Personally I have been using Hostgator web hosting for over 3 years now. I must say that besides the excellent customer service they provides, the cpanel web hosting feature is another thing that I like about them.

The whole display for this cpanel is very user friendly and it is all in the form of icon. For example, if you want to add a new domain to your existing hosting account. All you need to do is to scroll down to Addon Domains and then click on the icon.

Addon Domain

You will then be able to add your new domain name to your existing hosting account.

If you want to create an email for your business, all you need to do is to click on Email Accounts and you can then select the emails name you want.
