How to Check if the cPanel Ports are Open

Applied on: cPanel (Linux) Hosting

You may experience issues with the non-standard http ports cPanel works with. Usually Cpanel can be opened from:

  1. http://yourdomainname.com/cpanel
  2. http://yourdomainname.com:2082
  3. http://cpanel.yourdomainname.com

Sometimes local firewalls allow only access to sites on port 80. In such cases, use the last URL. Note that the third addressis a web based proxy which provides you with the option to access your cPanel via the default http port 80. This helps if your Internet Service Providers blocked ports 2082 and 2083.

You may check if the ports are blocked executing the following commands:

If you are running Windows do the following:

  1. Click Start
  2. Click Run
  3. Type cmd
  4. Type telnet yourdomainname.com 2083
  5. Type telnet yourdomainname.com 2082

If you are running Linux do the following:

  1. Start your Linux/Mac OS console terminal
  2. Type telnet yourdomainname.com 2083
  3. Type telnet yourdomainname.com 2082

If the port is not blocked the results should look like the following one. Trying IP_of_the_server ( 10.10.10.10 for an example )…

Connected to servername.com.
Escape character is ‘^]’.

Different result will means that the port is blocked.
