When there are users setup in CentOS Web Panel (CWP), they occasionally need to add domains to their plan. This guide will go over adding domains from the User Panel in CentOS Web Panel.

Prerequisites for Adding Domains

Logging the User In

Step 1: Log into the User Panel section of CentOS Web Panel. Access the User Panel by typing in your server IP Address and adding 2082 as a port. It may look like this:


A security error may display if SSL certificates are installed on the server. Follow the instructions in your browser to continue past the error. This error is normal as you are navigating to an IP Address while the certificate is expecting a domain name. Finally, you’ll see the following login prompt.
