You will be redirected to log in to your account through a secure HTTPS connection (which is a good thing since most host turn SSL login off).Â Your browser will display a warning about a problem with the certificate. In fact, there is absolutely no security problem. The connection is still secure and you can safely disregard the warning.Â However, both Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox 3 instead of a pop-up warning, show a whole error page notifying you about an SSL problem. To proceed to your cPanel/Webmail, depending on your browser, you should:
- If you are using Internet Explorer 7, once the warning page opens, you should click Continue to this website (not recommended).
- If you are using Firefox 3, once the error page opens, you should click Or you can add an exceptionâ€¦ > Add Exception... Then, in the pop-up window you should click Get Certificate and then Confirm Security Exception. To avoid having to go through this procedure every time you access your cPanel through a secure connection, you should tick the Permanently store this exception Â option available in the pop-up window.
Go to the warning message and click the "I Understand the Risks" link at the bottom.
Click the "Add Exception" button.
Click the "Get Certificate" button.
Click the "Confirm Security Exception" button.
