Web Host Manager (WHM) is your server's online management interface. Accounts with WHM can create their own cPanel accounts for themselves and other users. WHM is only available on VPS and Dedicated accounts. No shared accounts (including both Personal and Business Hosting) have WHM access.

Common WHM Tasks

Accounts
Within WHM you are able to create cPanel accounts. For example, if you are a web designer, you may want to create a cPanel account for each of your clients. This will allow them to do various things without the need to contact you, such as creating and deleting email accounts.
