HostMonster Web Hosting Help

I am having problems accessing your Control Panel.

Summary

The cPanel login uses port 2083, occasionally this port is blocked by a personal or corporate firewall.

Using login.HostMonster.com

If you are receiving an error that the page could not be displayed when trying to log into the control panel. It is most likely due to the fact that your firewall is blocking the port that the control panel uses.

Try using https://login.HostMonster.com as an alternative, if this still does not work then you will need to contact your local administrator to open the ports (2083, 2082). You can check if this port is open by using our web based port checking tool, HostMonster Port Test.
