Log in to webmail

Webmail is a way to access, use, and manage email from a browser. Use it to securely access your email without needing to download additional email software. It can work across most devices with an internet connection, including PCs, Tablets, and Mobile devices.

On cPanel, the easiest way to access and log in to webmail is through your browser’s address bar. If you have already set up your domain name, this can be either https://yourdomain.tld/webmail or https://yourdomain.tld:2096.

If you’re unable to access the mailbox through your domain, you can use the server’s hostname alongside either /webmail or :2096. The hostname for your server will be contained within your welcome email, for more information check out the access control panel article.
