The Terminal interface allows you to access an in-browser terminal application for direct command-line access within a cPanel & WHM session.


Commands that you enter in this interface can render your server inoperable. We strongly recommend that only users with command-line experience use this feature.


  • This interface only appears if both of the following conditions are true:
    • You possess shell access.
    • Your hosting provider enables the SSH Access & Terminal feature in WHM's Feature Manager interface (WHM >> Home >> Packages >> Feature Manager).
  • For information on how to identify and contact your hosting provider, read our How to Identify Your Hosting Provider documentation.
