How to Create a New cPanel Account in WHM

WHM helps hosting providers and resellers to create and manage separate cPanel accounts for their customers. The users of those independent cPanel accounts share the same server resources without knowing the existence of the other accounts. In this tutorial, we will guide you on how to create cPanel accounts for your new customers.

  1. Login in to the Web Host Manager (WHM) dashboard to begin this process.
  2. Go to the Create a New account section in the home page shortcuts. Alternatively, you can locate this section under the Account Functions menu on the left side of the WHM interface. The illustration of this step is shown in the image below. create a new cpanel account in WHM
