How to Create a New Account in WHM
To create a cPanel account, you need to create at least one hosting package. In WHM, you can easily create hosting packages.
- Log in to your WHM Account.
- Go to Account Functions >> Create a New Account or type Create in the menu filter box. The option will appear. Click on it.
- Enter the following details under Domain Information:
Domain: The domain name you want to host, such as example.com.
Username: Click anywhere on the blank area, and this field will be filled in automatically. You can also enter any other username you want to use.
Password: Enter a password or use a password generator. Copy the password to a safe place. You will need it to access your newly-created account.
Email: Your email address.
Choose a Package: You can choose a package from the drop-down menu. If there isn’t an available one, you can create it from the Add a Package option.
- Under Settings:
CGI Access: Tick this to enable CGI Access.
cPanel Theme: You can leave it as it is or choose a theme you want to use for your cPanel user account.
Locale: Select a language for your cPanel user account.
- Under Reseller Settings:
Make the account a reseller one: Leave it unchecked if you do not want to grant reseller access to your cPanel account. This option is only available for root users.
- Under DNS Settings:
Enable DKIM on this account: It is enabled by default. We recommend you to keep it enabled.
Enable SPF on this account: Check this option to prevent abusers from sending spoof emails on behalf of your domain name.
- Leave all other options as they are. Please, scroll down to the Create button and click it.
Your cPanel account will be created successfully.
