What is involved with creating a customer account?

Creating a new customer account is very simple in cPanel.

  1. Login to your Canvas Dreams WHM panel.
  2. Locate the Account Functions subheading on the left-hand side of the page. Click the Create a New Account link.
  3. Locate the Domain Information box. Enter your customer’s domain in the Domain field.
  4. cPanel will automatically enter the first eight characters of the domain in the Username field. You may use your own username if you wish.
  5. Create a password for the account, or click the Generate Password button to have cPanel create a password for you.
  6. Enter the administrator email address in the Email field.
  7. Locate the Package box. Choose the appropriate hosting package from the drop-down menu.
  8. Locate the Settings box. Choose the appropriate cPanel theme and default language for the site. (These settings may be left in their default position if you prefer.)
  9. Locate the DNS Settings box. If your customer’s domain is being hosted with a different registrar, click the box that says Use the nameservers specified at the Domain’s Registrar. This will automatically set the Nameserver settings to what they need to be.
    If your customer’s domain is being hosted with Canvas Dreams, leave the checkbox blank.
  10. Click the Create button.
