I have been facing this problem i.e. Your IP Address Has Changed, Please Log In Again – CPanel Error, for quite some time now. Whenever I try to log in to my CPanel, I am getting this error , so I decided to do bit of a research and found 4 possible ways to bypass this problem.
What Causes CPanel Login Error?
The root cause of the this error is dynamic IP Address. When you don’t have a static IP Address configured and your IP Address keep on changing with time this problem occurs.

Solution For CPanel Login Error
Let’s take a look at a few solution to deal with this problem.
Solution 1 : Use a VPN to Log In to CPanel.
- Open your website URL in any browser. The URL will look something like “https://www.yourdomainname.com/cpanel“
- Start VPN. I am using Mozilla Firefox browser and Touch VPN. If you are using Mozilla Firefox browser, then download and install a Touch VPN extension for firefox browser. If you are using Google Chrome browser, then download and install Touch VPN for chrome browser.
- Fill in the Username and the Password and click the Log In button, your login in to CPanel will be successful.
Remember one thing though, if you are using a VPN you will also be sharing your Log In details with the company who owns the VPN. So decide carefully, which option you would like to use.
Solution 2 : Use a sub-domain of CPanel
- By default you will have a sub-domain CPanel to your website. Open your website URL with the sub-domain in any browser. The URL link will look something like “https://cpanel.yourdomainname.com“.
- Fill in your Username and the Password
- Click on the Log In button.
Solution 3 : Use a WHM account to Log In
WHM also known as Web Host Manager is a web based administrative console for CPanel based internet web hosting servers.
- You can access your WHM account but using the following link “https://www.yourdomainname.com/whm“. This link will take you to a port 2087.
- Fill in the Username and Password
- Log In to the WHM account
- Click on “Main” -> “Server Configuration” -> “Tweak Settings” -> “Security Tab“
- Search for “Cookie IP Validation” and change its setting to “Loose“
- Clear your browser cache and Log In to CPanel using the link “https://www.yourdomainname.com/cpanel“
Please note, this solution is only for those people who have a reseller hosting or dedicated server hosting. Solution 3 does not apply to people with shared hosting account.
Solution 4 : Ask Your ISP For A Static IP Address
- Contact your service provider and ask them to give you a static IP Address. This will solve the issue permanently.
- If it is not possible for you to get a static IP Address, then you can also think of changing your service provider, if you want a permanent solution to this problem.
Solution 5 : Format Your Computer/Laptop And Install Operating System Again
- This CPanel Login Error can occur if your operating system has been compromised or corrupted
- Format your computer or laptop and install a fresh copy of operating system.
- Open your website URL in any browser. The URL will look something like “https://www.yourdomainname.com/cpanel“.
