WHM (Web Host Manager) is a control dashboard that gives users the ability to manage multiple cPanel-based sites. This feature is provided to all of our Reseller hosting packages. In this article we are going go over some of the features of WHM.
You can access WHM through your billing portal, or if your domain is correctly pointed to your server using the correct DNS records, you can also use domain.com/whm (PLEASE NOTE: you would need to use your actual domain in place of domain.com). The image below shows the opening screen you will see when logging into WHM. On the left you have a search tool that will help you find all available options. Under that, you will see all of the features that WHM offers and we will be going over just a few of these that are most commonly used by Resellers.
