To create a new account in WHM cPanel, just use this simple tutorial to guide you. We’ve put together a few steps that will allow you to get a new account up and running in just a few clicks.
Step 1 – Click on “Account Functions”.
Step 2 – Click on “Create New Account”.
Step 3 – Enter the desired domain. WHM will automatically create a username based on the first 8 characters of the domain. You can use the suggested username, or define one yourself. Note that usernames can’t begin with a number.
Step 4 – Create a 6-8 character password containing letters, numbers, and special characters. WHM also provides a Password Generator that can be used to create a random, unique password that is of a defined strength.
Step 5 – You have the option to set email notifications for the account. This option can be left blank if desired.
Step 6 – You can manually set the resource limits for the account by clicking on “Select Options Manually”, or you can select a predefined package that will automatically set these limits.
Step 7 – Other available options will include setting a dedicated IP address, providing Shell access, enabling FrontPage Extensions, and Digest Access Authentication for Web CGI Disk; it is recommend that you only set these if explicitly required.
Step 8 – When setting DNS options, it is recommended you only select “Enable DKIM” and “Enable SPF”.
Step 9 – Click “Create” and your account should be successfully created.
Tip: To confirm that the account has been created account, navigate to “Account Information”, and then click “List Accounts”.
