Account Management Panel (AMP) and cPanel are tools used by all InMotion Hosting customers. In this tutorial we'll give you an overview on what each tool is used for and how to login.

Account Management Panel (AMP)

Your Account Management Panel is used primarily for managing the billing aspects of your account. Within AMP, you can do many things such as:

Learn how to login to AMP

Please note! Before you can login to AMP, you must first click the link within your Welcome Email to initially set your password. You will receive the Welcome Email 20 minutes after your account is confirmed by your Sales Rep or a New Account Specialist during your confirmation call.

Note: Confirmation calls typically happen within an hour of your order. However, you can call us directly to have your account confirmed right away. If you don't receive that email, please check your spam folder for an email with a subject of Welcome to InMotion Hosting!. If the email is not located within your junk / spam folder, you can have your AMP password reset link emailed to you from this page. If your new hosting account has not yet been provisioned, the reset password link will not yet work.

The article is logical and I understand the difference between cPanel and AMP, but I'm taking a course to learn now to use WorkPress and I'm searching for information as to the best possible host for a practice website and one for my business.This is the first place I've found that actually provides useful information.

Hi I have purchased a package deal with templatemonster and are still waiting for the project manager to get it up and running, but just a quick question, I have two websites and old one and a new one with a different domain name, which you will be hosting, how do I get the old domain name and two email addresses to forward to the new one you will be hosting, and is their an additonal cost to do this? thanks

To do so, you could set up the old domain as a parked domain, then create redirects and email forwarders within cPanel.

Hi, I am going to park my old domain name here as well. I am sure it is logically easy and intuitive thing to do once you have logged on to cpanel.

Will all my visitors coming to my old site name go to my new domain automatically?

Hello Mike, and thanks for the question!

When you add a parked domain in cPanel, the Parked domain will simply show the content of your Primary domain. However the website address in your browser will not update, it will just show the same exact website.

If you'd actually like for people and search engines to start saving your new domain name when they enter your site from your Parked domain, you'll want to setup a 301 redirect for an old domain to a new domain to accomplish this.

If you had any issues at all getting that to work, or any further questions at all please don't hesitate to ask!
