How to Access cPanels via your Reseller WHM

When using the WHM, you have the ability to create, access, modify, and terminate your client’s cPanel accounts. In this guide, we demonstrate how to access cPanel accounts from within the WHM interface.

NOTE: This guide requires WHM access. WHM access is included (at no extra charge) with our Dedicated Server, VPS, and Reseller Hosting plans.

Entering a cPanel via WHM

  1. Log into your WHM.
  2. Click on the Account Information category in the left-hand side panel.

    Note that cPanel creation is no longer unlimited. For more information, please see cPanel Pricing Changes. You can see the pricing that now applies to cPanel licenses. To learn more about the change, please see our FAQ on cPanel Pricing.

If you’re trying to change the style of the cPanel for your Reseller sub-users, you can do that in WHM as well.  Check out:  How to Change Your Sub-users to Paper Lantern in WHM. You can also learn how to set the privileges that a reseller has in WHM.

Once you have set reseller privileges to a user, read through our guide for an introduction to reseller access within WHM. You can learn how to reset cPanel passwords within WHM to help your clients if they forget.
