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:

    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:

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.

This article does the job, and well. The only thing I would add are links to different articles that show ways of finding your server name that isn't through cPanel. Maybe with Godaddy, WP Engine, Amazon, or even a cut and paste PHP solution.

Hello Otakei,

Thanks for the question. Yes, we could definitely use more account information to look into the issue. However, the issue you're seeing is probably because you're jumping to an HTTPS connection from a non-https connection and the internet browser (in your case, Chrome) is bringing up the error saying it doesn't look like it's safe. You should be able to click on the link under the error message that says "Advanced", then choose to proceed anyway. Also, AMP isn't trying to make the connection, your internet browser is making the connection. You can also go DIRECTLY to the cPanel. Try review this article for logging into the cPanel:
How to login to the cPanel.

I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance.

Arnel C.
