How Do I Create a cPanel Account?.

DomainIn this field, you must enter the domain name for which you are creating the cPanel (do not include www. in front of the domain). If needed, you can create a cPanel account for a subdomain.


WHM will automatically suggest a username when you click this field. Please keep the following criteria in mind when creating a username:

May consist of 8 characters or less
Must be letters and numbers only with no spaces
May not use special characters or spaces
Also, you cannot use the username of root as it is already taken by the server.


It is very important that you use a unique, secure password when you create a cPanel account. The password should never contain the cPanel username; and it should never be identical to your WHM password (not even as a default or temporary solution) as this is a security risk.

It is recommended that you use the Password Generator tool. When you click Password Generator, a pop-up box will appear that will allow you to choose what types of characters you wish to use and how long the automatically generated password will be.


The email address entered in this field is used by WHM for automatic notification of issues with the account. If you want to receive these emails, simply enter your own email address instead of the account holder’s email address. WHM will automatically send an email with the account information to the address provided when the account is created.


The Package drop-down menu contains a preset list of limits and settings that can be applied to the accounts you create. Packages created using a reseller account will be automatically prefixed with your reseller username and an underscore ( _ ). This is to prevent package name collisions with other users’ packages on the server.

after all click on create account.
