Our Seedbox Control Panel is used for performing various operations, monitoring of your Seedbox.
In this tutorial, we will teach you how to use it for your own convenience.
We provide the login details to it together with the credentials for your service when you make an order.
Accessing Your Control Panel
You can access your control panel by navigating to the link found in your Welcome email.
Login window will be displayed (see picture below).
Enter your credentials, and press LOG IN.
Note: If you enter wrong credentials for more than three times, our System will blacklist your IP due to the prevention of Brute-force attacks.
Our system removes your IP from the blacklist in 15 minutes from the last attempt so please be patient or otherwise reboot your router to have a new IP address allocated.
