I want to block my cpanel link i.e www.example.in/cpanel for the users who are trying to access it, but it should be accessible only for me. Is there anyway to block it. I don't know anything about it. Any help will be appreciated. I don't know this question is valid for this Stack Exchange Community.

  • Presumably you are on a shared server? Do you have access to the server config?

If you are on a shared server (with no access to the server config) then I don't believe this is possible unfortunately.

I don't know exactly how cPanel implements the /cpanel "redirect", but I imagine it's possibly an Alias in the server config. It doesn't map to a resource within your webspace. You can't override an Alias in the Apache .htaccess file within your site.

Trying to "block" access to the URL /cpanel in .htaccess simply has no effect.

  • Sorry if my answer was not clear... No, I do not believe this is possible using .htaccess. Any request for /cpanel doesn't even reach your webspace, it's redirected (in some way) at the server level. If you check your site's access log, then I doubt you will see any entries for these requests.
