Changes on the LB platform NetEarth One

cPanel hosting being launched tomorrow on NEO

Dear Reseller,

As we have just found out, Unlimited Linux Web Hosting will come with cPanel from the 8th of April, 2010! LB have listed the impact of this launch below:

Activation and Important Details:

  • Linux Web Hosting will now come with Fanatastico
  • cPanel will be activated by default for all Resellers who have signed up for Web Hosting
  • If you would like to sign up for Web Hosting, you can do so by going to:
    Settings >> Products >> Manage Product Signup

Impact on existing orders:

There will be no impact on existing orders as part of this launch. All existing packages will continue to use the existing Control Panel.

Managing cPanel Hosting Packages:

You will be able to access and manage cPanel Hosting packages using the following methods:

  • The Manage Web Hosting button in the Order Details View in the Control Panel. The Customer will be automatically logged in, in this scenario
  • Domain_Name/cpanel – Your Customer will have to enter their main FTP username and password to login. These details will be sent to the Customer as part of the order confirmation mail.
  • Domain_Name_IP_Address/cpanel – The login details here are the same as above

Connecting via FTP:

  • It is recommended that Customers connect to their cPanel Package using FTPS on Port 21
  • Alternatively, they can connect via plain FTP on Port 2021. This will need to be used for publishing your website through a Website Builder Package.

LB will be sending across more information on this launch very soon.
