Proxy access for cPanel, WHM, and webmail. Needed to bypass firewalls.

With your Linux Shared Hosting accounts, you have access to a control panel that contains the admin functions of your account. Generally you would access this using the following syntax:

http://yourdomain.com/cpanel

This URL would change to

http://yourdomain.com:2082

This URL causes a problems for some owners, as it attempts to connect to port 2082. This is an uncommon port and may be blocked by corporate and public firewalls, thus preventing access.

If you are unable to access your cPanel using the above URL, you can now access it using the following syntax:

http://cpanel.yourdomain.com

This syntax does not connect using an uncommon port, and will allow you access. The same rules apply for Webmail and WHM.

http://whm.yourdomain.com

http://webmail.yourdomain.com

NOTE: You must use SignedOn nameservers (or nameservers which resolve to your SignedOn server) in order to use these "proxy" URLs. Otherwise, you will need to create A records for each subdomain so they point to your SignedOn server.
