One of the first things you will need to do for a new client is to give them their own hosting space. This is done by creating a cPanel account. As a reseller, you will have the ability to do this from within your Web Host Manager (WHM). Follow along below as we demonstrate how to create a new cPanel account within your WHM dashboard.

Creating a cPanel Account in WHM

  1. Log into your WHM admin dashboard.
  2. Click on Account Functions and then Create a New Account.
  3. Enter your domain information:
    DomainThe primary domain name for the cPanel account.
    UsernameUsername for logging into the cPanel.
    PasswordPassword for logging into the cPanel.
    EmailEmail address to receive cPanel account notifications.
  4. Select desired package from the dropdown. Our Reseller Hosting accounts include three Pre-Configured Packages you can choose from.
  5. Select your default theme and locale.

  6. Set your DNS Settings. For more information, see our article on SPF and DKIM settings.
