- Access cPanel through the Pro 4 Hosting Customer Portal. This is the preferred method, because you can access cPanel without having to remember a special URL or domain name.

- http://cpanel.exampledomain.com or http://www.exampledomain.com/cpanel, where exampledomain.com represents your domain name.

Logging out of CPanel #
You should log out whenever you have finished using cPanel, because this notifies the web server that you have finished your session. If you do not log out, the server automatically closes your session after a set period of time. However, there is a small possibility that an attacker could exploit the open connection before this automatic logout occurs.
To log out of cPanel, follow these steps:
- In the top-right corner, click :
- cPanel Home Screen
Learn about the cPanel home screen, the information it displays, and how to use it to access features.

- Viewing and changing settings for shared hosting accounts
You can use the Pro 4 Hosting Customer Portal to view and change login settings for a shared hosting account. You can also do many common administrative tasks right from the Customer Portal interface.
