How to log into cPanel securely

cPanel also allows you to log into your account through a shared SSL. cPanels default secure port number is 2083. You can log into cPanel securely by typeing the following example into your browser.

https://youripaddress:2083 (Example: http://1.2.3.4:2083)

An alternative way is to log in with the domain name. DNS must be propagated in order to do the following

https://www.yourdomainname.com:2083

The “:” tells the browser to enter in at a certain port.
Please note that if you do not put “https” in front of the domain name then there is a possibility depending on how the server is set up that it may not work.

You are now logged into cPanel securely.
