WHM (Web Host Manager)

What is WHM (Web Host Manager)?
Web Host Manager (WHM), is a powerful program that allows administrative access to the back end of cPanel.

Why would I want WHM?
WHM gives you a lot more control and flexibility when managing either a few very popular and resource intensive sites, or a large number of sites. On top of giving you the ability to sell hosting services to other people, WHM also gives you the option to create and manage multiple cPanel. There are lots of really good reasons, if you have business oriented or popular sites, to place them on separate cPanel.

What WHM Does:
WHM gives you a suite of tools to easily do the following things:

Create, delete, and suspend your cPanel accounts.
Manage and monitor your sites (password resets).
Access to check and change all of your domains' DNS zones.
The ability to configure your own customers' support requests through cPanel.
Permission to check the server information and status.
Ability to create your own default page when you create a new account.
Access to customize your hosting and control panel with extensive branding.
Ability to change your client domain names and usernames.
Hop between every cPanel on your account and access/change anything that does not require SQL access.
