NOTE: This article is written for our Classic Cloud Control Panel. You can access this interface from the New Cloud Control Panel by clicking your username in the upper-right of the control panel and selecting "First-Generation Control Panel".
Now that your account has been activated, the first thing that you'll want to do is to log in to the Rackspace Cloud Control Panel to access your account.
The Control Panel has 3 main sections
Your "Go To" menu, where you access all your assets, support, and manage account information.
This dynamic section displays the specific data associated with your selections from the left navigation menu.
This dynamic section viewable from the Home Screen will show the latest news including new features releases, pricing updates, industry news, and strategic initiatives. This is NOT the place to see maintenance announcements. Any news of service impacting events will still be reported from the Cloud Status page.
Click on the tab labeled 'Getting Started' from the Welcome screen. This will show you a brief overview of some key concepts for our products, and is a handy 'quick-reference' guide.
That just about covers the basic navigation of the Control Panel. In the next article, Accessing Billing Information, you will learn the details of the Billing portion of your Control Panel.
