    Hello,

    I have a question about using custom URLs for cPanel/WHM. First of all, is this even possible? Here's what I am trying to do:

    Right now I force all my users to use SSL logins, which uses my SSL domain cert. So, when for instance, a person types in http://theirdomain.com/cpanel, they are redirected to https://mydomain.com:2083/yadayada. I am perfectly fine with this because it lets my clients know that their login is secure, and that it is from a familiar name. However, I wanted to see if it would be possible to have this setup to where instead of going to https://mydomain.com:2083/, it would go to https://cpanel.mydomain.com:2083/ or to https://whm.mydomain.com:2087/ if using WHM.

    Is this at all possible? Can it be done simply using CNAMEs for each URL?

    I would love help if at all possible, and would even pay for a viable solution that works. :)

    Thomas

    Have you checked (I'm assuming you have) the Redirection Settings in WHM > Tweak Settings > Redirection tab and also the settings on the Domains tab?

    Yes, I have looked into that option, but it does not do exactly what I want. I could reroute it to the hostname, but that still doesn't give me specific URLs for cPanel/WHM. I'm going to see if I can setup a CNAME of some sort for this and see if it still works with SSL.

    To be clear, you do have a cert for "mydomain.com" in your example, correct? Or are you speaking of the self signed cert for the server?
