Howdy. This is Rosie Arcelay, a technical writer at cPanel – the hosting platform of choice. Today I will show you how to use external authentication to log in to your cPanel account. External authentication allows you to use third-party authentication to log in to your cPanel and Webmail accounts. cPanelID is cPanels third-party authentication service. In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to register your cPanelID, link your cPanel account to your cPanelID, and use your cPanelID to login to cPanel and Webmail.
First let’s register for a cPanelID. Navigate to your cPanel login interface. You will see the text boxes for your username and password followed by a blue Log In button. Below that section, click Login via cPanelID. The cPanelID Log In interface will appear. From the cPanelID Log In interface, click Create a New Account under Log In. The cPanel customer portal Log In interface will appear. Enter your e-mail address in the Full Email text box.
So let’s return to the cPanel Log In interface. In the cPanel Log In interface, click Log in with a CpanelID. The cPanelID Log In interface will appear. Enter your cPanelID email address and password. Then click Log in. You will see a request from the cPanelID system to access your profile information. You can click Approve Always to permanently link your account, or you can click Approve to link the account only for this session. If you click Deny, well you won’t be able to get in at all, could you?
The cPanel Log in interface will appear once you approve the access. The interface will indicate that your cPanelID isn’t linked to a cPanel account and will ask to connect them. Enter your cPanel account username and password in the corresponding textboxes. Then click Log in. The cPanel home interface will appear. Your cPanelID is now linked to your cPanel account. You will receive an email that indicates that you can now log in to your cPanel account via cPanelID.
Let me show you where to manage the credentials of your cPanelID. In the cPanel home interface, scroll down to the Preferences section and click on Password and Security. You can also click on your username located at the top of the interface. Then select Password and Security from the menu. The Password and Security interface will appear. Scroll down to the External Authentication section. You will see the cPanelID account information there. And that’s it. You have now linked your cPanelID to your cPanel account.
