Regardless of whether you're creating these email accounts for the first time or they currently exist on your previous host, you should start with our Email Getting Started Guide.

Getting to Know Our System

cPanel is your website's control panel. This is where you can do things such as edit your files or create email addresses. What cPanel does not allow you to do however is anything billing related, such as register new domain names or upgrade your hosting account. In the past it's been required for users to call in for these types of things, however we are excited to announce that we now have the Account Management Panel (AMP) available. In a nutshell, cPanel helps you manage your website and AMP helps you manage billing related items on your account.

To get started with either cPanel or AMP, check out our cPanel vs. AMP article.
