cPanel, Logging in to cPanel

There are different methods of logging in to cPanel on web.illinois.edu for University of Illinois members and for external partners and collaborators.

You can log in either from https://web.illinois.edu  or via https://go.illinois.edu/cPanelLogin .

Logging in as a member of the University of Illinois

If you're not the site owner, you might not need to log into cPanel itself. If you're contributing content to a specific website (for example, a WordPress blog, a Drupal database, or a forum), you may need to log into that website instead. Check with the site owner to see where you need to log in. cPanel, Getting access and setting permissions  has more information.

Logging in to cPanel as a site owner

  1. Members of the University should choose the blue Campus Login button.
    login

  2. If prompted, choose your Illinois.edu email and log in with your NetID and NetID password.

Logging in as a non-Illinois person

In order to be able to log in to a particular website, your campus partner will need to have given you access either to that site or to the cPanel account as a whole.

You might not need to log into cPanel itself. If you're contributing content to a specific website (for example, a WordPress blog, a Drupal database, or a forum), you may need to log into that website instead. Check with the site owner to see where you need to log in. cPanel, Getting access and setting permissions has more information.

If you do need to log in to the cPanel account itself:

  1. Tell your campus partner which Gmail identity you wish to use to log in with.
  2. Your campus partner will need to add you to the list of authorized users for this account. "Giving cPanel account access" in cPanel, Getting access and setting permissions lists the steps to take.
  3. Once your partner has given you access, visit https://web.illinois.edu or https://go.illinois.edu/cPanelLogin and choose the orange External Contributors button.
