  • Standard Login: http://example.com/cpanel
  • Secure Login: https://example.com/securecontrolpanel

Logging in Securely

  2. Locate the General information section towards the far right of the screen, then click the Server Information link.
  3. The Server Name will show your box.


Problems Logging In

Unable to Log In
If you're not able to log in, you're most likely using incorrect login credentials. Double-check that you've spelled your domain name correctly, without the "www" but with the extension (e.g., example.com), and that your password is being entered exactly as it was created. Our passwords are case- and character-sensitive, so make sure you haven't turned on your caps lock by accident.

Important: As a security precaution, a high number of failed login attempts within a few minutes will lock your account. If this happens, wait about two hours and then try again. If you've forgotten your password, please see How to Reset your Login Password.

Unable to Access Control Panel
The cPanel login uses port 2083, occasionally this port is blocked by a personal or corporate firewall.

If you are receiving an error that the page could not be displayed when trying to log into the control panel. It is most likely due to the fact that your firewall is blocking the port that the control panel uses.

Try using https://login.Bluehost.com  as an alternative. If this still does not work, then you will need to contact your local administrator to open the ports (2083, 2082). You can check if this port is open by using our web-based port checking tool, Bluehost Port Test. Ports that are blocked will display a broken image instead of the green image.
