    Hello,
    Is there any way to stop the redirect or to password protect the login page of cPanel ?

    For example
    When I open site.com/cpanel It redirects me to site.com:2082
    Is there any way to stop this ??


    Regards

    "Always Redirect to SSL" "Hostname" "SSL Certificate Name" will force the user to a popup asking for login details, and send them to to the secure port. host.name.com:2083 cPanel | host.name.com:2087 WHM

    User would have to accept the host.name.com certificate into their browser.

    There is still no way to get SSL Cpanel / Webmail without Portnumbers, right.
    Many people have these ports blocked in networks. If they want to use the hostname of the server the cannot
    access host.servername.tld/webmail without getting redirected to the portnumber.

    Is would be a lot better if it would be possible to choose URLs via which certain services are accessed via web.

    The proxy subdomains feature will allow you to access these without using port numbers

    I don't think so. You would need a SSL Cert for every proxy domain and an IP address. Normally you just have a wildcard cert
    on the host of your cpanel installation and then you cannot get a simple url without Portnumbers to allow secure access to the services. Still not the optimum if you move accounts between servers you'll have to communicate the new host to the customers.
    Best would be a portal function where you could aggregate the logon for all servers under one URL. Think about GMail. Even if you have your own domains you just have one logon screen. But that's straight offtopic and a feature request.

    Let's stick to the portless logon under one wildcard cert for the hostserver for cpanel,webmail, webdisk or whatever.
    I don't see a working solution out of the box.
