How to access/log in to cPanel

The information from this article applies only to cPanel web hosting control panel.

After ordering a web hosting plan you will receive an welcome email from your host with details on how to log in to your cPanel account. We will summarize bellow a few ways on how you can access the cPanel interface. Mainly, you can use three types of URLs.

1. Using the IP of the web hosting server:

http://your-site-IP/cpanel 
http://your-site-IP:2082
https://your-site-IP/cpanel (secure connection)
https://your-site-IP:2083 (secure connection)

2. Using your domain name:

http://your-domain-name.com/cpanel
http://your-domain-name.com:2082
https://your-domain-name.com/cpanel (secure connection)
https://your-domain-name.com:2083 (secure connection)

3. Using the server’s hostname:

http://server-hostname.com/cpanel
http://server-hostname.com:2082
https://server-hostname.com/cpanel (secure connection)
https://server-hostname.com:2083 (secure connection)

The server-hostname is usually something like server05.company-name.com.
As you can see, you can access cPanel interface with a secure connection. You just need to use “https” (and port 2083 if you want to connect directly to the port).
On the cPanel login screen enter your username and password and click the “Log in” button.

PlotHost wins the 2016 Great User Experience Award

PlotHost is relatively young compared to top hosting providers, but we noted a significant growth in the eight years we have been on the market. Our free setup and data migration, as well as unlimited FTP access for all holders, has been already promoted in a number of review platforms, and we couldn’t be happier to deliver the impeccable service our users expect.

Our contribution to the hosting market has recently been acknowledged by one of the most popular software and hosting review platforms FinancesOnline. The platform’s experts prepared a detailed analysis of our service and were very positive about the results of their test. In fact, we won the prestigious 2016 Great User Experience Award in the best hosting services category, and this award is given only to products with outstandingly intuitive interfaces and reliable service.

In their PlotHost’s review, FinancesOnline team said that PlotHost offers a service that genuinely delivers the 99.9% uptime it promises, which is a result of using CentOS operating systems and top-quality and updated SQL and Apache server versions. They also noticed that for the functionality we provide, PlotHost has a modest pricing scheme and assembles on board both individual users and larger companies. The reviewers were particularly fond of our unlimited add-on domains and autoresponders, as well as the simplified one click-installation for more than 400 different web apps that are available.

The award made us extremely proud and confirms the effectiveness of our commitment to top quality and innovative service. Most of all, it inspires us to continue pleasing our clients with top-notch uptime and support.
