When accessing the cPanel or WHM interfaces, accessing the SSL port over HTTP results in the browser being redirected to the server's hostname. This can be problematic for resellers especially, as the host they are reselling services from is revealed by this redirection.
cPanel offers three ways to avoid this issue:
- Access the server over https
- Access /cpanel, /whm or /webmail instead of :20xx.
- Access the cpanel, whm, or webmail subdomains
