Logging Into WHM
Posted by on 08 August 2012 03:58 AM

What is WHM (Web Host Manager)?

Web Host Manager, or WHM, is a powerful program that allows administrative access to the back end of cPanel. Reseller accounts get basic WHM. Dedicated Servers and VPS accounts get root WHM (also called rWHM), which has features that require root access to the server enabled.

Logging In To WHM

The address you use to log in to WHM can be found by using either the IP of the server or your domain name (assuming it points to the right place). 

Example addresses: 

  • (where '' is your actual primary domain name)
  • (IP of the server you are logging into)

The login credentials will be present in your product Welcome email. The login username for VPS and dedicated servers will mostly likely be root. The login username for reseller's is the same login you use for your cPanel account. If you do not have or don't remember the info provided in the welcome email, please get in touch.
