Creating New Accounts

  • July 7, 2013

WHM enables you to quickly add new accounts. You simply fill in the fields to specify the account details. Use packages that you created in the previous step to automatically fill in many of the fields automatically.

To create a new account:

1.Click on the Create a New Account link in the Account Functions menu.
 Creating new accounts
2.Note: If you want to use a predefined package for this account, click on the package name in the Package drop-down list. This will fill in many of the fields automatically.

Enter the domain name and username of the account in the Domain and UserName fields. The UserName field will automatically populate with the first 8 characters of the domain name, but you can change this to whatever you want.

Note: cPanel/WHM does not support usernames that start with numbers. Do not create accounts that start with numbers as you will not be able to use some functions on these accounts. 

Enter the password and disk space quota for the account in the Password and Quota fields.

Indicate whether CGI access, FrontPage Extensions are allowed in the CGI Access and FrontPage Extentions tick boxes.

Enter the maximum number of items allowed in the Max Ftp Accounts, Max Email Accounts, Max Email Lists, Max SQL Databases, Max Sub Domains, Max Park Domains, and Max Addon Domains fields.

Note: Enter the text unlimited if you do not want to place a limit on any particular item.

Enter the maximum bandwidth in megabytes allowed by the account in the Bandwidth Limit field.

Click on the default CPanel theme for the account in the Cpanel Theme field.

Click on the Create button.
