Create an account in WebHost Manager (WHM)

To host a domain name's website on your VPS or Dedicated server using cPanel, you need to create an account and add the domain in WebHost Manager (WHM).


  1. Log in to WHM using root for your username and your server's password at https://yourserverip:2087, where yourserverip is your server's IP address.
  2. In the navigation tree, below Account Functions, select Create a New Account.
    select create a new account
  3. Complete the fields in the Domain Information section.
    add your domain information

    Note: WHM automatically creates a Username based on the first 14 characters of your domain name. You can change it if you like.

  4. (Optional) Complete the other onscreen fields.
  5. Click Create.

WHM displays a results page outlining your new account. If there are no problems, you'll see Account Creation Complete at the bottom of the page.
