Overview

The Create a New Account interface allows you to create new cPanel or WHM accounts.

cPanel & WHM supports several types of users with multiple levels of permissions:

  • The root user can create or modify any account and possesses access to all of cPanel & WHM's features.
  • Resellers can create and manage the cPanel accounts that they own and can access both the cPanel and WHM interfaces. The root user specifies the privileges for these accounts. For example, you can modify access to only allow resellers to suspend or unsuspend the accounts that they manage.
  • cPanel users can access the cPanel interface and possess access to manage most aspects of a website. The root user and the reseller who owns the cPanel account can specify the account's privileges.

Notes:

  • Your interface may differ slightly from what this documentation describes. WHM users with some account types and configurations may not possess access to certain features or options. If you require access to a feature or option, contact your system administrator.
  • If you set a server in a DNS cluster to the write-only role, WHM will not check whether a DNS zone exists before you create an account. Because of this, it is possible to create the same domain name on two or more of these servers. If this occurs, the servers will compete for updates to that domain.
