    I have shared hosting plan with cPanel. But most time i need to access to cPanel so I am using http://domain:2082 method.the thing is its bit annoying to me..
    My question is
    Is it possible to map http://domain:2082 to as http://cpanel.domain like subdomain?

    This is called a proxy subdomain, and it is enabled by default. If cpanel.domain.tld does not work for you, ask your host whether proxy subdomains are enabled. If they are, ask your host to make sure an A record for cpanel.domain.tld exists in the domain's DNS zone.

    Also, the alias domain.tld/cpanel works by default. It redirects to the cPanel port. Proxy subdomains are really intended for users who are behind a firewall that prevents access to the regular cPanel ports.
