How to access cPanel via the Console

Click Dashboard to access the link to your cPanel administration interface which is available in your hosting homepage.

How to access the Webmail

The classic Scaleway Dedibox webmail interface will remain available via the website. If you wish to manage your e-mails through cPanel, you can access the webmail platform directly via the cPanel dashboard.

How to configure the Nameserver

Nameservers are servers used to translate domain names into IP addresses. When you enter a URL in a browser, they show you where the website is located, instead of memorizing entire numerical sequences in the form of IP addresses.


If you are migrating from another Webhosting service to the new Cloud Hosting offer powered by cPanel, you might need to update your nameserver information with the following new addresses:

  1. From the console, click Domain on the upper menu of the Scaleway Dedibox console. A list of your domain names displays.
  2. Click the Configure domain name action of the domain you wish to set up. The Status of domain name page displays.
  3. Click the Manage DNS Servers tab to find a list of your nameservers.
  4. Erase the old addresses.
  5. Include the new cPanel nameservers.
  6. Click Update DNS Servers to update the information.
