How to Create, Modify, and Delete accounts in WHM.

Creating an account

After you have created a package in WebHost Manager, you can create an account. A new account includes:

  • Website functionality (with files hosted in the public_html directory).

  • FTP account.

  • SSH access (if it is enabled in the package)

5. In the Password text box, type a password for the new account, and then confirm the password in the Re-type Password text box.
