    I signed up for hostgator VPS level 3,and i dont know where to begin.

    I was given a log in for Parallels Power Panel and WHM.

    Where is the Cpanel? oh man,i feel like a noob.

    I would like to add domains,upload my stuff,and connect through FTP.

    Please help.

    Why did you bought VPS if you dont know where to start??

    Wait for email from Hostgator with your Cpanel details.
    Be sure you have bought Cpanel (I am not sure but there is possibility that Admin panel is an option...)

    Good Luck

    Ya, I agree with ExtraWinner! Did you order the cPanel with your original order? If you did not, then you should place an order for it first.

    But on a VPS, I usually login with WHM.

    I also ordered the same VPS from them and it is just perfect! :D

    i was on a shared host,until they contacted me and told me i was not allowed to have a mailing list bigger than 5k.

    Actually i was using Interspire with shared host and i sent out a campaign,with a limit of 200/hour.Woke up the next mornig and found that Interspire was sending 4k/hr.Hostgator caught on quickly and shut me down and advised me to go onto VPS.

    I did order the Cpanel,but in the welcome email all i see is VZ login and WHM url.

    type yourdomain.com/cpanel to get to your main cpanel. If you want to create more cpanels, type yourdomain.com/whm and click the create account link! That's all.

    VPS is just like Resseller hosting if you're a noob because I don't think you'll be logging in as root at all :p

    When I first got a VPS a few years back I was clueless. Just get on to support and get them to configure everything for you - you might feel dumb but that's what those support geeks are paid for.
