How do I access WHM?

Web Host manager is located at or securely at https://your.server.ip:2087 (e.g. )

Note that accessing WHM via https may bring up a certificate error in your browser, this is due to the fact that it is a self signed certificate being accessed by the IP address URL as opposed to a domain name URL. It is safe to proceed even though your browser may give a warning.

It is highly recommended that you log in at the secure url (https). WHM data is transferred through your browser unencrypted unless you use the secure port. You must have port 2086 and 2087 open on your computer in order to log into WHM. These are open by default, but could be closed if you use a firewall.
