Linux Hosting (cPanel) Help

Set up my Linux Hosting account

After you purchase a Linux Hosting plan, you need to set it up before you can use it to host your website.

Warning: Setting up an account changes a domain's DNS records, so an existing website and email addresses might stop working. For help finding the best path, on our Contact Us page click Chat Now to reach out to a GoDaddy Guide 24/7.

  1. Go to your GoDaddy product page.
  2. Under Web Hosting, next to the Linux Hosting account you want to set up, click Set up.
    select set up
  3. Complete the on-screen fields, and then click Finish.
  4. Note: If you're setting up your account with an Internationalized Domain Name, you will need to enter the punycode version of the domain name.
