Getting started with the CloudPanel VPS Template

Updated over a week ago

CloudPanel is an intuitive web hosting control panel designed for easy management of websites and web applications. When you choose the Ubuntu 22.04 64bit with CloudPanel VPS template on Hostinger, CloudPanel comes pre-installed. This guide will help you get started with using CloudPanel on your Hostinger VPS.

Accessing CloudPanel

To access CloudPanel, open a web browser and navigate to https://your-vps-ip:8443. Replace your-vps-ip with the IP address of your VPS.

If you wish CloudPanel to run on your domain, point your domain to a VPS IP address and change the server hostname 💡

To log in to CloudPanel, use the credentials you provided during template installation:
