As a reseller you have the option of modifying the look of your customers cPanel, and webmail interface. For example you may want to add your own logo, or add a custom footer. In this guide I will show you how to make a copy of an existing cPanel branding style, go over the editable options, then set it as the default cPanel style.

How to create a custom cpanel branding style:

  1. Login to WHM.
  2. In the top left search box type branding, then click Branding under cPanel.
    working in branding editor

  3. You will see 2 options listed, one for cpanel, and one for webmail. Click the Live Editor link next to the one you want to edit. (The one for webmail ends in mail).
    modify look of cpanel

  4. Click the Create or Upload Branding button.
  5. In the Create a new branding style section, enter a name for your new template, and click the Create button. In my tests I named the new branding style: custom-cpanel. You will then see a message stating “The branding style custom-cpanel was successfully created.”.
  6. Click the Go Back to Branding Editor button.
  7. Now scroll down and find the branding style you created, and click Edit this Style.
