Overview

The Create Support Ticket interface allows you to open a ticket with cPanel's support team. This feature streamlines the ticket creation process, automates SSH authorization, and decreases the time that you require to open a support ticket. In addition, it attempts to identify your support ticket requirements and redirects you to the cPanel Customer Portal as necessary.

Is this server hacked or compromised?

We included this check within the Support Ticket Wizard to ensure the security of your cPanel Customer Portal account.

  • If you do not believe your server is hacked or compromised, select My server is not compromised and click Continue through WHM. This option allows you to use all of the automated ticket creation features that the Create Support Ticket interface provides.
  • If you believe your server is hacked or compromised, select My server is possibly compromised and click Continue to the cPanel Customer Portal. The interface will open the cPanel Customer Portal in a new browser tab. Use it to manually create your ticket.
Warning
titleImportant:

To ensure the security of your cPanel Customer Portal account, make certain that you select the correct option. When you select My server is not compromised, you allow your server to perform actions on your behalf via your cPanel Customer Portal account. If you select My server is not compromised when your server is compromised, you could possibly open your cPanel Customer Portal account to intrusion.

Authenticate with the cPanel Customer Portal

The interface will open a dialog box in your browser that prompts you to allow access for your cPanel Customer Portal account. To establish secure communication between our server and your server, you must log in to the cPanel Customer Portal. In the dialog box, log in to the cPanel Customer Portal, or, if you are already logged in, click Allow Access.

Note
titleNotes:
  • You must create a cPanel Customer Portal account to open a cPanel support ticket.
  • If you use a popup blocker, add an exception to your blocker's rules.
  • Some browsers may open a new tab rather than a dialog box.
