In this article I'll teach you how to quickly find the server name for your cPanel account. The server name refers to the physical server that hosts your website files and is something good to know especially when your website hasn't gone live yet.

Locate server name in cPanel

  1. Login to your cPanel.
  2. click on expand statsUnder the Stats section on the left, click on expand stats
  3. view server nameScroll down till your see the Server Name field, in this case we can see our server name is biz104
  4. Now that you know your server name you can use it in the following format for example to access your site over the temporary URL:

    http://biz104.inmotionhosting.com/~userna5

    Or if you were trying to access your shared SSL certificate you can do this by replacing the biz part of the server name with securewhich would end up looking like this:

    https://secure104.inmotionhosting.com/~userna5

You should now know how to find the server name in cPanel for your account, so in case you need to access the server and your domain name isn't pointed to the server you can still access the server.
