Login to cPanel using your Server name

You can use either of the above three methods with your Server Name instead of your domain name. This is particularly useful if your domain is still pointed to a different server, or if you have edited your DNS. Please refer to this guide on finding your server name if you are not sure what it is. This will usually look like one of the following examples, just remember to replace ‘secure###‘ with your actual server name.

  • secure###.inmotionhosting.com/cpanel
  • cpanel.secure###.inmotionhosting.com
  • secure###.inmotionhosting.com:2083

Login to cPanel with WHM

If you are on a plan that provides WHM access, you can access cPanel directly from WHM.

  1. Login to your WHM.
  2. Click on the Account Information category in the left-side menu pane.
  3. Click on the List Accounts option.
  4. A list of the cPanels owned by the WHM user will appear. To access one, simply click the cPanel icon.

Now you should be able to see the cPanel just as if you had logged in as the client or cPanel user.

Troubleshooting cPanel Login Issues

 

I want to reset my cPanel password

To reset your password, please see our tutorial on resetting your cPanel password using AMP.

 

I am not prompted to login with a Username and Password when attempting to login

If you are not prompted for a username / password when visiting example.com/cpanel, your domain name may have been just registered and isn’t working yet due to propagation, your domain may not be pointing to our servers, or you’re using an internet connection in which the cPanel ports (2082 / 2083) are blocked. Usually trying one of the following will resolve these issues:

  • Use cpanel.example.com instead of example.com/cpanel.(This uses the cPanel proxy, which accesses cPanel over the standard port 80 vs. 2082 / 2083)
  • Use your temporary cPanel URL, such as biz###.inmotionhosting.com/cpanel.

I am entering a username and password, but they are not being accepted

If your username and password are not being accepted when logging into cPanel, it could be one of these issues:

404 Error

If you are getting a 404 error, check out the following guide.

I have a domain only account

If you have a domain name only account, you do not have a cPanel to login to. Now’s the perfect time to upgrade to one of our specialty solutions, such as WordPress Hosting.
