HostGator Customer Portal Preview
HostGator has developed a new Customer Portal with a billing and support system that allows you to manage everything related to your HostGator account. Please visit the Customer Portal Overview for more details.
The Customer Portal and cPanel systems can be accessed individually. This way, you can give a web developer, friend, or associate access to your hosting control panel to build or update your website without giving them access to your billing information within the Customer Portal. Then you can reset the cPanel password when you no longer want them to have access.
This article will discuss the following topics about your Customer Portal.

Once you log into your Customer Portal, the default page you'll land on is the Dashboard. This section shows you the menu on the left pane, the first 3 hosting plans in your account, direct links to launch your control panel (cPanel, WHM, or Plesk) depending on your hosting plan, quick links, and a search bar.

The Hosting section is where you'll find all hosting plans in your HostGator account. Each hosting plan shows you its plan ID, type of hosting, and renewal date. It also gives you the option to manage it or go directly to its control panel (cPanel, WHM, or Plesk), except for the Optimized WordPress plan (this hosting plan has no cPanel).
