    I used to run my Web Hosting business on dedicated servers and I always set the Tweak Setting to for https on cPanel and WHM logins using the hostname (which is the recommend setting for obvious reasons).

    But now that I am on ResellerClub's Linux Shared Reseller Hosting, they don't for this. So when someone goes to domain.tld/cpanel, it forwards to port 2082 (insecure connection). If I put in domain.tld:2083, it correctly goes to the hostname with ssl enabled.

    They don't want to change that setting as I will affect everyone on that shared server, so I am trying to find another way to get a secure login at the host name without forcing my customers to remember the 2083 port number.

    Any suggestions?

    cPanel Access Level:
    Root Administrator

    It's not possible to configure that type of redirect on the server if you do not have root access to the system. However, you could setup a redirect from an existing URL associated with your domain name to the secure URL. This would involve providing your customers with an alternate URL for cPanel access.

    Thank you.
