Are you wondering if it’s possible to disable the QNAP web server? Look no further!

In this tutorial, we will explore the steps you can take to disable the web server on your QNAP device. So let’s dive in!

Why Disable the QNAP Web Server?

If you are not using the web server feature on your QNAP NAS, disabling it can provide a few benefits. First and foremost, it reduces the attack surface of your device.

By disabling unused services, you decrease the chances of potential vulnerabilities being exploited.

Furthermore, disabling the web server can free up valuable system resources that can be utilized for other purposes. This is especially relevant if you are running resource-intensive applications on your NAS.

Disabling the QNAP Web Server

To disable the web server on your QNAP NAS, follow these simple steps:

  1. Accessing the QNAP Administration Panel
  2. The first step is to access your QNAP administration panel. Open your preferred web browser and enter the IP address of your NAS in the address bar. Press Enter to load the login page.

    If you have enabled SSL encryption for remote administration, make sure to use “https://” instead of “http://”.

  3. Logging In
  4. Enter your username and password in the appropriate fields and click on the “Login” button.

    Note: If you haven’t changed them before, use default credentials (admin/admin).

  5. Navigating to Web Server Settings
  6. Once logged in, navigate to “Control Panel” and click on “Applications” in the left sidebar. Then, click on “Web Server” to access the web server settings.

  7. Disabling the Web Server
  8. In the web server settings, you will find an option to enable or disable the web server. Simply uncheck the box next to “Enable Web Server” to disable it.

    Once disabled, the web server will no longer respond to HTTP requests.

  9. Save and Apply Changes
  10. After disabling the web server, don’t forget to save your changes. Click on the “Apply” button at the bottom of the page to apply the new configuration.


In this tutorial, we’ve learned how to disable the web server on your QNAP NAS. By following these steps, you can reduce potential security risks and free up system resources for other tasks.

Remember to only disable services that you don’t need, as disabling critical services may impact other functionalities of your QNAP device.

Keep in mind that if you ever need to re-enable the web server, simply follow these steps again and check the box next to “Enable Web Server”.
