My office's firewall is blocking the port I need


With cPanel, you can bypass the specific port numbers and access what you need via port 80 - the standard HTTP port required to be open so you can browse websites.

Here are the ports that may be blocked:

cPanel login

port 2082 and 2083

WHM login

port 2086 and 2087

Webmail login

port 2095 and 2096

These ports cause problems for some owners, as they are uncommon ports and may be blocked by corporate and public firewalls, thus preventing access.

If you are unable to access your cPanel, WHM, and webmail, you can likely access it using the following syntax:


In the samples above, substitute "example.com" with your actual primary domain or addon domain name.

NOTE: You must use HostGator nameservers to use these shortcuts. Otherwise, you will need to create A records for each subdomain (cPanel, WHM, and webmail) so they point to your HostGator server.
