cPanel and WHM Demo Link Instructions

We have provided basic linking instructions on how to link to your cPanel or WHM demo from your website. For additional information on pointing your subdomain or domain to our server, see our Demo Setup Instructions. If you need any further assistance please contact us.

Linking to your cPanel subdomain or domain

There are 4 different ways to link to your cPanel demo. In all examples, please be sure to replace your subdomain/domain and username/password combination with yours.

  1. http://demo.yourdemo.com

    *RECOMMENDED* We have setup a .htaccess file to direct all traffic to the demo domain/subdomain directly into your cPanel demo, including username and password. This link will login your visitors into your demo automatically. You should still list the username/password on the same page.

  2. http://demo.yourdemo.com/cpanel

    This is the traditional way to access cPanel and will require customers to enter the username and password. Be sure to list the username/password on the same page.

  3. http://demo.yourdemo.com:2082

    Access cPanel through its port number. This will require customers to enter the username and password. Be sure to list the username/password on the same page.

  4. http://demo.yourdemo.com:2082/login/?user=demouser&pass=demopass

    With this link, you can log your customers into your cPanel demo automatically. You should still list the username/password on the same page.

Linking to your WHM subdomain or domain
