I'm just wondering whether bot crawling is disallowed on the cPanel and WHM interfaces by default? Is there a robots.txt file anywhere in the cPanel or WHM root directories, I can't seem to find it?

The reason I ask is a client of ours has been having some issues with SSL validation on their site on a Plesk server, it ended up being because Google were crawling the :8443 Plesk interface and finding that the shared certificate on the server didn't match the clients domain name.

I'm just wondering whether cPanel disallow this crawling by default on 2083 and 2087 for instance?
