Creating a new cPanel account in WHM

In order to create a new cPanel account in WHM, follow the steps as given below:

  • Log in to your WHM: SERVER-IP/WHM.
  • Type “Create a New Account’ in the top left search box.

  • Enter in the New Domain Name, Username, Password, and Contact Email Address.

  • Select the Package for the account that you have created earlier or choose “Select Options Manually”.

  • If “Select Options Manually” is checked, this will bring up the “Manual Option” box.
  • Enter the desired values for boxes.
  • Select “Save Manual Settings as a Package” to save the new created package. 
  • Under the “Settings” section, select the desired options; Dedicated IP, Shell Access, FrontPage Extensions, CGI Access, Digest Authentication for Web Disk, cPanel Theme, and Locale (Language)
  • In “Reseller Settings”, click the checkbox if the user is a reseller.
  • In “DNS Settings”, DKIM is checked by default. Select the “Enable SPF on this account” for future use. 

  • Leave “Use the nameservers at specified Domain’s registrar” and “Overwrite any existing DNS zones for the account” unchecked unless you are using a custom nameserver. These settings can be modified at a later date. 
  • The “Mail Routing Settings” can be modified after the creation, and the default setting “Local Mail Exchanger” will not work unless the outside server is used as the “Mail Handler”.
  • Finally, click “Create” to create your cPanel account in WHM.
