We have briefly explained above. If we were going to give a little more detailed explanation; Is a special software installed on the server. This software is an icon based graphical interface designed to make it easier for some settings on the server to be changed, to get more information like statistics and any Logs.

This is because all basic operations like database or optimization have to be done via ssh code lines. However, at this point, a simple interface provides a very easy to use.

If you have cPanel with the control panel offered by the hosting company you have purchased, you have to login to the management panel first. There are several alternative methods to follow for this;
1) via a normal connection: The last part of the server you enter the ip number or website address in the address by the hosting company of your browser: Enter the port number 2082. Entrance will be like this.
I based site address: http://www.siteadresi.com:2082
