Domain Administration Control Panel Overview

by Ned Schumann - mgr last modified Jun 27, 2016 10:59 AM

Log in to the Domain Control Panel with admin@yourdomain.com and your administrator password or with your full administrator email address and password, if different.

After logging into the Control Panel, click the Pencil (Advanced Tools) icon to access all the tools available for managing your domain. Each tool opens in a separate browser window and is mostly self explanatory. The Support link in the top right corner for each tool gives more information about that tool. A listing with a synopsis of the tool and Helpful Hints follows.

To log out of a tool, simply close the separate window it is running in. To log out of the Control Panel, select Logout from the My Account dropdown in the black menu bar.

Consult your webmaster for help with website tools.

Email

  • Dashboard - View, add or modify your email accounts and aliases.

    • Use the OlympusNet Email Settings  NOT those shown on the Email Settings page in this Settings section.

Website Tools

FileManager Pro

  • File Manager allows you to take full control of your website files. It is a safe alternative to full shell access for sophisticated users. You can copy, move, delete, rename and edit files, create and remove directories, change file permissions and upload files from your local computer to the server.
  • File Manager is best used to manipulate files that have been previously uploaded to your website. To upload more than one file at a time, an FTP client, such as Filezilla or WinSCP,  is generally more efficient.
  • SSL Manager: Set up an SSL certificate - either a generic certificate of ours or your own SSL certificate. Contact us to enable the SSL Manager tool.

  • Give different users access to certain areas of your site.
