FAQ

Why is HostMonster changing?

HostMonster has optimized the design and features to make managing your site easier and more straight forward.

When will my account be updated?

We will be continuously rolling out the new interface through the remainder of 2019.

Can I login with my existing username and password?

Yes, you will continue to login to HostMonster using your existing username or domain and password. After we’ve migrated your account to the new interface, you will be redirected to the online branch.

Can I go back to the old interface?

HostMonster has upgraded to our new interface to provide you with improved Hosting services and security. We are constantly listening to your feedback and make changes and updates based on what we hear from you. You can expect continuous updates and improvements in the future, but the old system will no longer be accessible.

Where is cPanel?

When you’re logged in to your account, simply select the Advanced tab, which will load your cPanel.

Do I need to change any settings?

We will be disabling our old servers and you will need to update the settings in your email client (Outlook, Mac Mail, Thunderbird, etc.) to continue to send and receive email without disruption. We will send you an email reminder prior to disabling the server to allow enough time for you to make these changes.
If you need specific instructions for how to change these settings based on your email client, you can get assistance for specific mail clients from our help page.
