How to Add a Clock Box to Your Website through cPanel

cPanel has a function called Counter where you can create a clock for your website. The function can be accessed in the CGI Center in cPanel.

To create a clock for your website, follow the instructions below:


  • On the homepage of your cPanel, click CGI Center under Software / Services.
  • Click on the Counter link.

  • Under Please select functionality, choose Clock.
  • Under Please select time zone, choose a time zone from your drop down menu. The time zones are in Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
  • Under Please select Format, choose the time format from the drop down menu. If you want the time to display in 12 hour format for example 10:30 p.m., choose 12 from the drop down menu. If you want the time to display in 24 hour format, choose 24 from  the drop down menu.
  • Under Please select Frame Color, enter the hexadecimal values for the frame color. You can also pick a color through the color selector provided by cPanel. After you have chosen a color, click on the x in the upper right corner of the color selector.
  • Under Please select Maximum digits, select the maximum digit for the clock from the drop down menu. By default, the maximum digit is set to 5.
  • Under Please Select Style, click on the See Styles link to view the styles available for the clock. There are 33 styles which you can choose from. Enter the letter or number of the desired style for the clock.
  • Under Counter Name, enter a name for the clock. The name will be used by cPanel to save the clock that will display on your website.
  • The Color Replacer allows you replace all the colors in one instance. To replace a color, click on the multicolor tool box on the right of the source color. You can increase and decrease the value of a color by clicking on the “+” and “-”.
  • To preview the clock box, click on the preview button. cPanel does not limit you the times which you can view the clock.
  • If you are satisfied with the preview, click html.
  • The html code for the clock will appear. Copy the code beginning with <img src= and end with >.
  • After that, paste the code into the place where you want the hit counter to appear on a web page.

If you follow the instructions above, you will be able to create a clock box for your website through cPanel.
