In this long-awaited article, we'll explain how to navigate & use our webhosting panel, as well as explanation of how to use certain functions in the panel. Let's get started!

To have your website up and running, you need to point an A record at your DNS records to the IP address 166.0.133.4

Domain Management

Use this to add a new domain to the webhosting plan, or manage existing domains. Click on a domain name to view it's specific settings, such as ssl, php, etc By default, users get 3 slots, so, 3 domains.



Subdomain Management

Use this to add a new subdomain to your existing domains available. Click on "Add Subdomain" to add a new subdomain. Once added, you can edit settings related to that subdomain, such as docroot path ( where you want the subdomain files to be stored ) as well as view statistics and logs in regards to the subdomain



DNS Management

If you have your nameservers as dns1.witherhosting.com and dns2.witherhosting.com , you can manage your DNS records here ( or at the client area as well ). Please keep in mind, if you do not have these nameservers, the records you apply here will not actually work.



SSL Certificates

Use this page to get SSL deployed to your website. If for some reason our SSL system does not work, there are other options in this tab such as Paste a pre-generated certificate and key , which you can use to add your own SSL certificates from external sources, such as Cloudflare, or ZeroSSL



FTP Accounts

Use this page to add an FTP account to provide file access via the FTP protocol. When connecting to FTP, use the webhosting IP address ( 166.0.133.4 ), the username of your ftp account, and the password

MySQL Management

Use this page to have databases available for your website needs. To edit details about a specific database, click on the database name. You can specify allowed hosts ( what IPs are allowed to connect ), set privileges, and modify the password.



Domain Pointers, Site Redirection, Hotlinks Protection & PHP Settings

Use domain pointers to have a domain point to a particular website. You can use site redirection to redirect parts of your website to another link. Use hotlinks protection to provide error pages for invalid file types. Use PHP settings to enable/disabling logging of errors

Email Accounts

You can create mailboxes, set quotas, send limits etc. in this page.



The remaining settings in the E-mail manager section are for specific mail configurations. Feel free to check them out!

File Manager

Use this to have a file explorer for your webhosting files. You can upload, edit, unarchive, zip files here just like you would with any other file manager. You can also use FTP if you're not comfortable with this layout

WebMail

Use this to have an email inbox available to use on your email accounts on our webhosting plans!

PhPMyAdmin

CPGuard Security

You can use this antivirus/blocker software to manage what files, attacks, etc. may happen to your website!

When creating an application, you can specify what nodejs version to use, whether the application is in development or production, the application root ( where the files are located at. Make sure any package files are also here! ), the domain you want the nodejs app setup on, the startup file ( such as index.js ), and the file path for the logs of the nodejs app.



Once made, you can click the edit button to install packages, start/stop the application, and edit other parts of your application
