Hi there,

To set up cpanel you will need to create a WHM (Web Host Manager) account.

Creating a new account interface allows you to create new cPanel accounts. The interface may differ slightly. Some WHM users may not have access to certain features or options, based on their account type and how the account is configured. 

Please follow these steps:

  • Log in to WHM 
  • go to Home
  • Select Account Functions
  • Select create a New Account

    If you require further assistance please email:
