Control Panel (cPanel/WHM)

How do I create a reseller account in cPanel/WHM?

  1. Log into WHM.
  2. Navigate to Account Functions and click on Create a New Account.
  3. Fill in all relevant domain information.
  4. Next, inside of the Reseller Settings section, click the option to make the account a reseller.

Please take notice of the “Owns their account” option. If you select this, then the person who buys the reseller account from you will own the account. As a result, he or she will be able to control various options and privileges (such as disk space quotas, bandwidth, the number of MySQL databases allowed, etc.) that are otherwise under your control as root.  If you do not select this option, then root (you) will own the reseller account.

  1. When all the necessary information is filled in, scroll to the bottom and click Create.

To make an existing cPanel account a reseller account:

  1. Log into WHM.
  2. Navigate to Reseller Center under Resellers
  3. Use the drop-down box under Add Reseller Privileges to give a specific account reseller privileges.
