You may be alarmed when you see security warnings when trying to access your cPanel web hosting account; however, please don’t be. We’ll explain why you are encountering these issues below.
These security messages come up when you are trying to access a secure port within the cPanel web hosting server, on ports such as; 2096 and 2083. You are receiving these error messages because the cPanel certificate that is being used on the web hosting server (which was automatically generated by cPanel) is self-signed instead of being signed by an SSL authority such as GeoTrust. Having said that, a self-signed SSL certificate is as secure as non-self-signed SSL, so your web hosting security is not compromised.
If you have any further questions or need any assistance, please feel free to reach out to our web hosting support team and we’ll be glad to assist you further.
Getting a dedicated IP address and own SSL certificate with your web hosting package or VPS is the solution for this SSL problem :)Posted by CarpetMax - Mon, Jul 16th, 2012 9:45 AM
Of course always use the cPanel web hosting panel secure access via 2083. Check if you do not have the lock s not secure to fill your username/password. SSL is encrypting the data submitted over Internet.Posted by Wesley - Wed, Apr 4th, 2012 6:10 PM
