Login Webmail on cPanel Server

cPanel provides web interface for interacting with its email feature without needing to interface with a local email client like Thunderbird. This section guides you on how to login to your cPanel webmail.

Check Your Security

Before you start logging in your webmail, you must make sure that your web browser is safe. Here are some checklist to do before we login.

Clean Extensions List

Browser's extensions is one very easy way to show data leak. Hence, you should always ensure that you are ONLY keeping those essential extensions such as password manager (e.g. LastPass).

For those occasional usage, a good practice is to delete them when re-install them back whenever you need to use them again.

NOTE: the idea is to reduce as many data access points as possible to secure yourself. Extensions are always available in the Chrome Store so you do not have to worry about reinstallation.

Visit Your Webmail

Once done, you can visit the URL. To visit your site, you need to construct your URL first. cPanel usually adds /webmail path to the domain name. Hence, you can construct the URL according.

Example, say your domain name is: example.com. Your URL construction would be:

Domain URL: https://example.com
Path      :                    /webmail
———————————————————————————————————————
Final URL : https://example.com/webmail
———————————————————————————————————————

Once done, you can visit your site (from the example above, it is the final URL: https://example.com/webmail).

This will present the webmail interface. Please DO NOT Login yet.
