Using cPanel webmail on DO droplet

Hi, I got a web app running on a droplet. The domain is hosted via namecheap. I would like to use the built-in(roundcube) email in cPanel(via namecheap account).

currently, the url of is redirecting to the default site, and not not the webmail login page (as it should).

Can you help me configure the droplet so that I will have a subdomain or a url that redirects to the cPanel’s webmail service?

I’m using the DO nameserver, and already setup A records.

Hello, @greencup556

If you access the droplet’s IP address on port 2096 this should redirect you to the webmail/roundcube’s login page:


Note: Replace IPaddr with the actual IP address of your droplet.

You will receive a warning message about the certificate but you can ignore it and continue.

Hope that helps!
