Hello,
I just got started as a reseller and I'm in the process of building my hosting business website. I have no problem creating the user's account page with databases etc. but what I'm not sure of is how I link the buttons on their page to their cPanel using the database. Am I right in assuming that the cPanel URL would be different for every user?
This question applies also to other user account functions like WebMail etc

What buttons? You'd need to provide more details on what it is you're doing there.

Each account you create should be able to reach cPanel and Webmail from URLs similar to these:
usersdomain.com/cpanel
usersdomain.com/webmail

Thanks for the reply,

What I mean is if I build a webpage which links each user to their own cPanel. So this URL would change on that page on a per-user base.

Ohh so it's just a /cPanel? I thought it was a long text link with different variations.

Thank you

If you are just providing a URL for the users to access and enter their credentials, then using /cpanel after their domain name or the hostname/IP address of the server is acceptable.

Thank you.

Ahh that's great, thank you.
I just saw on one of website hosts where that account page links to my cPanel, the hyperlink is an IP:Port address. How would I be able to do that? yourdomain.com/cpanel just doesn't look too nice to me

You can use port 2082 instead of /cpanel if you prefer. It's the port number that cPanel runs on and is accessible over any domain name that resolves to your server or any IP address added to your server.

Note: Use HTTPS and port 2083 if you prefer to use the secure URL.

Thank you.
