Note: All ports and naming will use Rycob’s information. While most hosts use the same naming format and ports, it may be different from host to host. Check with your host before proceeding if you’re unsure.

Getting Started

To get started you will need to know the following information.

If you are a Rycob customer, all of this information can be found in the welcome email sent to you, or in your Google Drive folder.

  • “CPanel” username and password
  • Email account desired and password
  • The SMTP server and port
  • POP3 server and port

Rycob clients can find their SMTP and POP3 server and port on this post

If you have all of that, then you’re ready to begin!

Step 1: Log in to CPanel

To login to your CPanel go to “” with your domain address. You should come to a screen like this:
