You have the option of modifying the look of your customers' cPanels along with the webmail interface. You can add your logo or a custom footer. In this guide, we 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.

NOTE: This guide requires WHM access. WHM access is included (at no extra charge) with our Dedicated Server, VPS, and Reseller Hosting plans.

How to Create a Custom cPanel Branding Style

  6. Click the Create or Upload Branding button.
  7. 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.”.

The branding for Webmail is a feature that requires WHM access. Unfortunately, since WHM access is not included with Shared hosting, this feature is unavailable.

This needs to be updated, the current WHM system does not have a breanding section. You go to the "cPanel" section then click "customization", and that's how you'll be able to rebrand your cPanel for your customers.

Thanks for your comment about the Branding option being gone. I just double-checked it and you are correct. I will update the article to reflect the change. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Hello Avuyile,

At this time per the makers of cPanel, it is NOT possible to re-brand the login page. It states it here in their documentation (in the red-highlighted area under Overview): cPanel- custom branded login pages

If you're really determined to have your OWN login page, you can always create one that links to the existing login page. For example, Custom Webmail login.

Apologies that we are not able to provide that functionality directly in WHM for a reseller.

Arnel C.
