This only applies to our older, pre-2008 hosting plans on either the Direct Admin or Helm control panels. The newer cp.blacknight.com control panel does not have these problems.
If your account has been activated you should have received an email with your account login details. Our windows control panel uses port 8086 and is accessible at: http://galahad.blacknight.ie:8086 Our linux control panel, Direct Admin, uses port 2222 and is accessible at: http://www.yourdomain.tld:2222 (replace yourdomain.tld with your actual domain name or the temporary IP in your welcome email) If you have received your welcome email but cannot access the control panel please check your firewall. You might find that your local firewall or office firewall needs to be changed slightly to allow access to the control panel.
