cPanel control panel included in reseller hosting packagesYes. cPanel is included in all of our Reseller Hosting Plans.

There are two interfaces of cPanel that you will need to familiarise yourself with. They are:

  • Web Host Manager (WHM)
  • cPanel

What Is The Difference Between WHM And Cpanel?

The offering from cPanel is hierarchical. In order to create accounts for your clients you have to logn to WHM (Web Host Manager).

WHM is the top level of administration. This is the main difference between cPanel and WHM.

Then your clients need to be able to login to cPanel so that they can manage all aspects of their hosting such as creating and managing email accounts, setting up databases, automating tasks, etc..

So think of WHM as being the main area where you create packages and setup your clients’ hosting accounts. Only you have access to WHM.

Then there is the main cPanel interface which is created for each client that you have. This is where they manage their hosting. Both you and your client can access their cPanel account.What Are The Main Features Of WHM?

When your sign up to the service your acccount is setup you will be sent a welcome email. This contains the login details for your WHM account.

The main features are:
