View Full Version : Server Details

I usually come across clients for web work those just know the username and passwords.But they dont know the paths for thier hosting control panel.

Is there any method for getting the paths of CP or to find out the server details like Windows,Linux or Unix ?

The linux ones are :
On the server it will be something like (for apache)

But most (if not all) install sites into the home directory which is normaly

Umm the URL for the control Panel 9 times out of 10 is normaly
http://domain.com/cpanel ('http://domain.com/cpanel') or http://domain.com/cp ('http://domain.com/cp')

Failing that I am sure you can find what you want to know on the hosters site in the info about their plans.

Can we find out the hosting company for a particular domain or hosting type!

If you know what the IP address or the URL is I can find out for you who the hoster is.
