cPanel, Creating a new account

How to create a new account for the cPanel web hosting service available at web.illinois.edu.

To create a new account on web.illinois.edu, you must be a member of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with an @illinois.edu email address.

Partners from other institutions can share in your account once it's been created; however, the account owner must be a part of the Urbana campus.


  1. Go to https://go.illinois.edu/cPanelCreate .

  2. Click the Campus Login button.

  3. If prompted, choose your Illinois.edu email and log in.
    The sign-in sequence



  4. Choose the domain you'd like to use.
    1.  For personal sites, your own NetID is a good choice that's easy for you to remember. You'll receive a domain in the form of yournetid.web.illinois.edu.
    2. For group or departmental sites, you'll probably want to use non-NetID options in a form like yourprojectname.web.illinois.edu.
    3. Some additional rules may apply. Click the blue ? icon for additional information.

  5. (Optional) If your department uses a special identity and you want to associate this account with the department, use your department's support code.
