    Sorry, this might be a stupid question, but I am quite new to all this lingo. I want to download cPanel. I am on a Windows 2000 OS... I have no idea which cPanel to download from the long list, and I do not know what to do after downloading it since it's not a regular install file I am used to seeing.

    help me out! thanks

    cPanel is a Linux control panel.

    ugh, this is just so confusing. I signed up for a web hosting server, no where in that website did it ever say that it required that I myself needed a Linux OS to just manage the server.

    So i signed up, it tells me to get cPanel/WHM, and well, i don't actually run a Linux OS, so I am left in the dust on what to do....

    I am not sure how this all works but I if cPanel is supposed to be installed on the server hosting the website, shouldn't the web hoster already have it installed and not require myself to install cPanel?

    You will need to connect to your server and install cPanel to it remotely.

    Good luck! :D

    Let me clarify: If your server uses a Linux OS, then you can install cPanel/WHM. You don't need to have Linux on your local machine to do this, but your remote server must use Linux.
