How do I use cPanel with CloudFlare?

CloudFlare allows traffic for the default cPanel ports, 2082 (HTTP) and 2083 (HTTPS).

To access your cPanel with CloudFlare enabled, try any of the following:

  • yourdomain:2082/
  • yourdomain:2083/ (over SSL, so requires paid plan)
  • (often a redirect to one of the above)

If you want to access cPanel without going through CloudFlare, try one of the following
  • (if you've set up that DNS record)


If you have problems with cPanel behind CloudFlare, review "Cookie IP Validation" settings.
