For cPanel & WHM 11.40

(Home >> Account Functions >> Manage Demo Mode)


This feature allows you to turn any cPanel account on your server into a demo account.

A demo account restricts the user's ability to alter files and folders but appears to be fully functional. This makes it a useful sales tool, allowing you or your resellers to show prospective clients what their account(s) will look like.

Enable or disable demo mode

To enable or disable demo mode for an account:

  1. From the Account Selection list, choose the domain or username of the account you wish to turn into a demo account.
    • You may also use the Account Search feature to search for an account by domain or by user.
    • The account must already exist on your server; if you need to create the demo account, use the Create a New Account feature.
  2. Click Modify.
  3. Click Enable or Disable.


Demo mode is for cPanel accounts only. WHM does not provide the ability to create demo WHM accounts.
