As a hosting reseller, you can create multiple cPanel accounts and resell them to users. But, if you have a prospective client who isn’t familiar with cPanel, you can offer them a demo account where they can try out cPanel to see if they like it. Demo mode forbids actions that might cause damage like:
- Creating or editing files
- Editing DNS zones
- Creating domains
However, the account will appear to be fully functional. In order to use the demo mode, you can enable it on a specific cPanel account from within WHM.
How to Enable Demo Mode in WHM
In order to use this procedure properly, you must either create a new cPanel account or use an existing one.
- Log into WHM.
- Click Manage Demo Mode under Account Functions.
- Enable Demo Mode for affected domain by clicking Enable.
Now your users will be able to log into the demo account and try out a fresh cPanel.
