Note! Be sure to replace example.com with your actual domain name.

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.
Login to cPanel with WHM
If you are on a plan that provides WHM access, you can access cPanel directly from WHM.
- Login to your WHM.
- Click on the Account Information category in the left-side menu pane.
- Click on the List Accounts option.
- 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.
