If you are no longer hosting a website, or you are closing it down, you may want to delete or terminate the account from the Web Host Manager(WHM). In this tutorial we will show you how to remove a cPanel from the WHM.

This tutorial is only for Resellers, and accounts with VPS or Dedicated servers.

Deleting a cPanel from WHM

  1. If you want to save the files associated with this account, I recommend Backing Up your Website and downloading a copy.
  2. Login to your Web Host Manager(WHM).
  3. Click the Account Functions Button.
