    cPanel sends mails whenever there is a root login.
    This does not makes sense (to me at least) to send me mails when I, myself make the login.

    Of course, I do not always connect from the same IP, and many cases I connect from home address that is a dynamic IP.

    I believe that allowing fully qualified names on the cPHulk white list would do the trick, but it does not work.

    Is there a way to make cPanel stopping send me those annoying mails based on my fully qualified computer name instead of the IP?

    Hello :)

    You can disable "Send a notification upon successful root login when the IP is not whitelisted" in "WHM Home » Security Center » cPHulk Brute Force Protection". However, it's not possible to whitelist the individual hostname or computer name through cPhulkd. You can submit a feature request for this via:

    Thank you.
