Hi, I have just started out with reselling and just wondered how would I send the client thier Cpanel?

Do I just send them an email link like I was sent by my provider?

Any info would be great....

Hello,

Do you mean what you would send for the login details? This depends on what you want to provide for the user, since there are many urls to access cPanel usually:

http://domain.com:2082 and https://domain.com:2083
http://IP#:2082 and https://IP#:2083
http://cpanel.domain.com and https://cpanel.domain.com

Once you've selected what url(s) you would like to provide, you can send the login details (username and password) to that user as well.

If you mean something else besides the above or would like more details, please let us know.

Thanks!

Hi, Thanks for the response and sorry for the confusion regarding the original post.

I have logged in using the encrypted domain and for some reason I was presented with an untrusted connection notice. Is this common when trying to access the Cpanel via an encrypted ssl connection.

Thanks again, Hulkenburg

I have checked again and it seems that entering the cpanel through http://cpanel.domain.com
is not valid security wise. Should I just keep using the link that my provider sent me?

What is the link that your provider sent to you? You haven't provided it.

Next, you will get an untrusted warning, since the SSL certificate would be self-signed for the cPanel service. Even when using https://cpanel.domain.com over port 80, you would need an SSL for that specific domain to be installed that is a purchased SSL if you do not wish to have an untrusted warning prompt.

The problem is when I edit the address and enter my domain details into the address I get the untrusted message saying that the certificate is only valid for the address that I was provided with....

Would you advise to just keep using the providers address so that I can log in on Cpanel?
