Web Host Manager can be accessed in two ways; via AMP, or directly through your URL. In this tutorial we will cover both methods, and provide some information about your WHM password/username. We will also go over some basic troubleshooting steps.

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.

Accessing WHM from 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.

Accessing WHM Directly

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, or hostname. 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:

  • (SSL) - This URL should be entered as 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.
  • (non SSL)
  • (non SSL)


If you are unable to connect to your WHM with or, your network may have a block on those ports. Port 80 is the standard internet port so you should have no problem connecting with the following:

  • (Be sure to replace with your actual domain name)
