cPanel Tutorials – Two-Factor Authentication

D. CA, USA – Ignored Cancellation – I can’t tell much about the performance because I did not actually use them. I cancelled my account in Dec. 2012 but just found out nearly a year later because I received a renewal email, that they charged my credit card anyways. I talked to the support who confirmed that they received my cancellation but that an email was sent to me the very next day – which I never received – asking for the reason for my cancellation but since they didn’t receive a reply, they simply continued with the charge in January – which was also then suddenly much higher. Well, here is one reason why one should not sign up with #Justhost because it looks like a scam.

We filmed this tutorial with cPanel & WHM version 76, so the interface and features may differ from the current version. We’ll produce newer tutorials as the feature evolves and improves.

Please let us know if there are additional features or procedures that you would like for us to demonstrate with a walkthrough in video format.

    What if you setup 2FA and loose your smart phone or authentication device, are you totally locked out for good?

    the double factor is uncomfortable and justifiable to operate cPanel from mobile phones, but from a desktop or notebook computer, I don't see anything practical. I think it would be very useful that from the cPanel you can generate a QR code of the credential and that there if I worked for example with an application of cPanel of the mobile, like whatsapp or other web access, that would give not only an interesting security , administrable from the website, but a convenience when entering the administration console, I imagine that something like that would even be very practical to make promotions or educational rooms to know and teach the benefits of cPanel, comfort with security, safety with an obstacle which is a delay to access tends not to be used I think, but you should see that in the statistics of how many domains with cPanel use the 2FA, hugs.
