How to Create a New Account in WHM?
To create a cPanel account, you need to create at least one hosting package from WHM. You can easily create a package from the Add a Package option in WHM.
1. Login to your WHM Account.
2. Go to Account Functions >> Create a New Account or type Create a New Account in the search box, and the option will appear. Click on it.
3. Enter the following details under Domain Information:
Domain: The domain name you wish to host, like example.com
Username: After you enter a domain name, click on this field, and it will automatically fill up your username or enter any other username you wish to use.
Password: Enter a password or use a password generator. Copy the password in a safe place. It will be required while accessing your newly-created account.
Email: Your email address.
Choose a Package: From the drop-down menu. You can choose a package. If there isn't any package available, you can create it from the Add a Package option.
CGI Access: Tick this to enable CGI Access.
cPanel Theme: You can leave it as it is or chooses a theme you wish to use for your cPanel user account.
Locale: You can choose a language for your cPanel user account.
Under Reseller Settings:
Make the account a reseller one: Leave it unchecked if you do not want to grant reseller access to your cPanel account.
Under DNS Settings:
Enable DKIM on this account: It is enabled by default. We recommend you to enable it.
Enable SPF on this account: Tick this option to prevent abusers by sending spoof email on behalf of your domain name.
4. Leave all other options as they are. Please scroll down to the Create button and click it.
Your cPanel account will be created successfully.
