The “Create Account” functionality in the WHM control panel is perhaps the most widely used option as it offers a lot of flexibility in the way our VPS and Dedicated Server customers manage their cPanel user accounts and websites. This tutorial will provide you with insight into how you can easily do this on your own.
First, you need to log into the WHM service for your VPS or Dedicated Server. If you are not sure how to do that, please check our How to Access WHM tutorial. After you have logged in, please navigate to the search bar on the left side of the page and type “Create a New Account”.
When the functionality shows up bellow, click on it so you can be sent to the cPanel Account Creation page.
After the new page is shown, you will notice the account creation screen. It will require certain information so that you may proceed. This Includes:
These are the main parameters that are required for the creation - the rest which we will explain below are optional and vary based on what you want to achieve:
After you are done with the desired configuration, scroll down to the very bottom of the page and click on the “Create” button in order to finalize the process.
The creation of the account will take a couple of seconds, after which you will be forwarded to a page, containing information about the created account.
There will also be a really handy “Go to cPanel” button on the top right corner, which will directly log you in when you press it.
This sums up the process around the cPanel account creation from your WHM. As you can see, it is pretty straightforward and if you follow the guides inside this tutorial, you should have a really easy time.
