Always redirect to SSL

This feature option allows you to redirect users to the proper SSL/TLS ports when they access the following URLs (where example.com stands for the user's domain name):

  • www.example.com/cpanel
  • www.example.com/webmail
  • www.example.com/whm

This feature does not redirect users when they access the following URLs:

  • cpanel.example.com
  • webmail.example.com
  • whm.example.com

This item defaults to  Off .

Notes:

  •  If you wish to force SSL with the above URLs, enable the  Require SSL  option in the  Security  section. The  Require SSL  option  does  function with  proxy  subdomains.
  • When you enable this feature, users will not be able to send their passwords to these links without encryption.

 

Non-SSL redirect destination

This option allows you to specify how you would like to redirect users who access cPanel & WHM without SSL.

You may select from the following options:

  • Hostname — Redirects users to the server’s hostname (for example, host.example.com:2082 where host.example.com is the server's hostname).
  • Origin Domain Name — Redirects a user to his or her main domain (for example, example.com:2082 where example.com is the user's domain). This option is selected by default.

This rule applies when a user visits:

  • www.example.com/cpanel
  • www.example.com/webmail
  • www.example.com/whm

This rule does not apply when a user visits:

  • cpanel.example.com
  • webmail.example.com
  • whm.example.com

  • Hostname — Redirects users to the server’s hostname (for example, host.example.com:2083 where host.example.com is the server's hostname).
  • Origin Domain Name — Redirects a user to his or her main domain (for example, example.com:2083 where example.com is the user's domain).
