Welcome to Web Host Manager! This short guide will show you how to setup and manage your user/customer accounts.

To login to WebHost Manager (WHM), use the following URL:

If you cannot login to WebHost Manager, the possible causes are:

1) You entered the wrong username and password

How to create a New account:

Click on Create a New Account.

Note: When setting up a new domain name under "Create a New Account", always remember to UNcheck the box for the option that reads "IP" before clicking "Create". Only this way will your
accounts be correctly set-up as name-based accounts. Also note, when setting up new domains, you must not use IPs from the dropdown list unless they have been assigned to you. To request
IPs, you must drop us a support ticket. If you set up accounts on IPs not assigned to you, the accounts could quite possibly be removed without notice.

Once you have successfully created a new account, the following screen shows:

| New Account Info |
| Domain: blah.com
| Ip: (n)
| HasCgi: y
| UserName: blah
| PassWord: boo
| CpanelMod: anonymous
| HomeRoot: /home
| Quota: 50 Meg
| NameServer: ns.???.com

To access your users site based on the above settings, use:

Service How to Access User Resources
FTP ftp.blah.com
Web http://www.blah.com (after domain transferred) (awaiting transfer)
Control Panel
