This article pertains to WHM, a feature only available to VPS Hosting, Dedicated Hosting, and Reseller Hosting users. Shared Hosting users do not have WHM access.

Web Host Manager can be accessed in two ways, through AMP and directly through the URL.

What is my WHM Username and Password?

cPanel is tied into WHM, and because of this, you'll use the same cPanel username and password to log into WHM. If you change your cPanel password, it is changing your WHM password as well.

How to Access WHM from within AMP

  1. Log into AMP
  2. Under your account name, click the WHM button.

  3. If your WHM password matches your AMP password, you will automatically be logged in. Otherwise, you will be redirected to the WHM login page.

How to Access WHM from your domain

WHM operates over two different ports:

  • 2086 (does not use SSL)
  • 2087 (Uses SSL)

You can log into WHM using variations of your domain name. Some of the options log you in over an SSL encrypted connection, and others don't. For security reasons, we recommend you always login over ssl. The following is a list of various URLs you can use to log into your WHM:

  • https://vps####.inmotionhosting.com:2087 (SSL) - This URL should be entered as https://hostname.com:2087. As you're going over an SSL connection and your hostname uses a self signed certificate, you may receive an SSL warning. It is safe to accept the warning and continue.
  • YourDomain.com/whm (non SSL)
  • whm.YourDomain.com (non SSL)

Troubleshooting:

If you are unable to connect to your WHM with yourdomain.com/whm or vps####.inmotionhosting.com:2087, you may have a block on those ports. Using the whm.yourdomain.com URL will go over the proxy port 80. Port 80 is the standard internet port so you should have no problem connecting with whm.yourdomain.com.


Congratulations, now you know how to login to your WHM!
