How do I log into cPanel securely?

Problem:

How do I log into cPanel securely?

Solution:

You can do this by entering the following URL, replacing yourdomain.com with your website address:
http://www.YOURDOMAIN.COM/securecontrolpanel
This encrypts the username and password so the information cannot be viewed ("sniffed.")

Note: This does display security warnings questioning the validity of the certificate if you do not have your own SSL Certificate installed for the domain. This can be ignored and does not diminish the security of the login process.
