How to Use cPanel and WHM Panel With VPS

Accessing and setting up cPanel and WHM on Hostinger’s VPS

Updated over a week ago

cPanel and WHM is one of the OS templates available with our VPS plans. You can choose it while setting up your VPS for the first time or change it later anytime.

License Information

The cPanel license is not included. If your account is on Hostinger Global or a Hostinger Europe brand, you can purchase it from hPanel by following these steps: How to Purchase a License.

If your account is on a Hostinger brand other than Global or Europe, you can purchase the license from cPanel directly.

Logging in

Once you get your VPS running with cPanel/WHM, you'll be able to log in to either WHM or cPanel.

WHM details

  • Login URL via HTTP: http://your_vps_ip:2086

  • Login URL via HTTPS: https://your_vps_ip:2087

  • Username: root

  • Password: your root password

cPanel details

  • Login URL via HTTP: http://your_vps_ip:2082

  • Login URL via HTTPS: https://your_vps_ip:2083

That’s it! Now you know how to get cPanel/WHM up and running 😊


  • Replace your_vps_ip with the IP address of your server

  • cPanel username and password need to be created on the WHM panel already; a guide for that can be found here

  • When accessing the login URL, accept an untrusted SSL certificate in your browser
