  1. Hello there,

    I have a question and I hope I can find some answers.

    I have a VPS and I have insatlled cPanel on it and connected my WHMCS to this cPanel and I got some clients

    but I almost hit my VPS disk space limits. I know that I need to add a new server inside my WHMCS account,

    adding a new IP address for the new VPS, however, I do not know which cPanel account I should add?

    Should I add the same cPanel root account or should I create a new cPanel for the new IP Address”VPS”?

    1. Hi, Hani! Most people do not install WHMCS on a root cPanel acount, but instead on a child-account so that it can be managed more carefully. That way, if something causes WHMCS to use a lot more memory or bandwidth than expected, you will be able to better adjust the account while still being able to easily access your root cPanel account. Generally, it’s best to keep the ‘root’ account focused on managing other cPanels, and place other tasks in other cPanels as appropriate. Here is our article on cPanel account creation for further tips. I hope that helps!
