    When I visit serverabc.com:2083, it just times out.

    When I visit my sites hosted on that server, they time out too.

    When I visit with a proxy, I can view everything, does that mean the server has blocked my ip? Maybe I tried to login too many times and failed.

    leave a timespan > 1 hour,
    clear all your cookies with ccleaner,
    get a cup of your favourite drink,
    reboot your system,
    and try again, and bingo, you are in !!!

    works every time, honestly.

    Yes, you probably have been IP blocked.

    If you have a dynamic IP, just restart your router, if you have a static IP then submit a ticket to your host asking them to whitelist your IP.

    Great, ya I have a static IP, so turning on and off and cleaning cookies hasnt worked for me.

    I've been waiting for a couple days on reply from my host, thats why I decided to ask. Good to have a pretty solid answer tho.

    thx

    Sometimes the IP block is automatically flushed after 10 minutes.
    If you persist with the logins though, the block becomes permanent and can be in the firewall for days (even weeks for server with less websites on them).

    Protip:
    If your website works and only cPanel doesn't load it means you're on a network that is blocking non-80 ports. This happens on public/company/government WiFi hotspots.
    cPanel recently added an update that enables you to login via port 80 by going to:
    - cpanel.yourdomain.com
