cPanel Access

Problem:

How do I Access My Account Control Panel?

Solution:

You may access the cPanel of your Bluehost account using any of the following:
  • If the NS (Name Servers) of domain is not yet pointing to Bluehost, use http://BlueHost.com.
  • To access the cPanel securely to encrypt the username and password so the information cannot be viewed or sniffed, use https://login.BlueHost.com.
  • If either port 2082 or 2083 (cPanel ports) are blocked on your network, you always access th cPanel via http://login.BlueHost.com
In all login options above, enter the primary domain or username of the account and its main password to gain access.

Note: Your account username can be found in the Account Setup Confirmation Email that was sent to you when your account was initially setup. If you did not receive the Welcome Email, you may contact us via Phone or Live Chat and we will send it to the contact email address listed on the hosting account.
