Accessing cPanel

 

Before anything else, accessing your cPanel account will require you to go to any of these secure or unencrypted URLs:

 

 	https://192.168.0.1:2083 – This will provide you with access to cPanel through your IP address with an encrypted connection.
 	https://example.com:2083 – The word “example” in this sample URL pertains to your own domain name, and using this URL will gain you access to your cPanel account with an encrypted connection.
 	http://192.168.0.1:2082 – This method of accessing cPanel means using an unencrypted connection via an IP address.
 	http://example.com:2082 – Similar to the second URL in this list, although the connection is unencrypted.

New to the world of cPanel, WHM, and Webmail? Worry not, as accessing your accounts and services require just a few steps.

 

To help you get started on enjoying the robust features of these platforms, just follow the steps outlined below.

 

Accessing cPanel

 

Before anything else, accessing your cPanel account will require you to go to any of these secure or unencrypted URLs:

 

  • https://192.168.0.1:2083 – This will provide you with access to cPanel through your IP address with an encrypted connection.
  • https://example.com:2083 – The word “example” in this sample URL pertains to your own domain name, and using this URL will gain you access to your cPanel account with an encrypted connection.
  • http://192.168.0.1:2082 – This method of accessing cPanel means using an unencrypted connection via an IP address.
  • http://example.com:2082 – Similar to the second URL in this list, although the connection is unencrypted.

 

Once you have navigated to any of the above mentioned URLs, you can now proceed with entering your cPanel credentials (username and password) and hitting the “Log in” button.

 

Accessing WHM

 

Similar to the first step of accessing cPanel, you also have to navigate to any of the following URLS:

 

  • https://192.168.0.1:2087 – This will give you access to WHM through an IP address with an encrypted connection.
  • https://example.com:2087 – “Example” here refers to your domain name, and navigating to this URL will give you access to your WHM account over a connection with an encryption.
  • http://192.168.0.1:2086 – Using this method will give you access to WHM, but over an unencrypted connection with an IP address.
  • http://example.com:2086 – This works the same as the https://example.com:2087 URL; the only difference is that you will have access over an unencrypted connection.

 

After successfully accessing any of these URLs, just put in your WHM credentials and click on the “Log in” button.

 

Accessing Webmail

 

You can access Webmail either through the cPanel interface or using your browser as a direct method. To do this though, type in any of the URLS in your browser’s address bar:

 

  • https://192.168.0.1:2096 – This gives you Webmail access using an IP address with an encrypted connection.
  • https://example.com:2096 – Gain access to your Webmail through your domain name over an encrypted connection.
  • http://192.168.0.1:2095 – Using your IP address, this URL will give you access to Webmail, although it will operate over an unencrypted connection.
  • http://example.com:2095 – Replace the “example” in the URL format to gain access to your Webmail using an unencrypted connection.

 

Complete the log in process by entering your credentials and hitting the “Log in” button.

 

Critical Reminders for all cPanel, WHM, and Webmail Users

 

As you can see from the discussion above, there are plenty of ways to access cPanel, WHM, and Webmail. However, for your own sake and security, you should make it a habit to use only encrypted SSL connections whenever logging in to any of these accounts. With an encrypted SSL connection, you do not have to worry about compromising your confidential credentials.

 

As a final reminder for an even more convenient, enjoyable experience with your cPanel, WHM, and Webmail use, consider bookmarking the interface URL. In doing so, you no longer have to memorize the necessary IP address you have to navigate to.
