Managing Packages Tutorial

This tutorial covers the following topics:

In order to access your WHM, you need to add /whm after your domain name (provided the domain is pointed to your account with us). So, for example, if your site is domain.com, you will be able to access your WHM interface by visiting http://domain.com/whm.

If your domain is not yet pointed to your Cloud account, you can access your WHM by typing the server name and then again adding /whm after it. For example, if you are hosted on c1234.sgvps.net, you will be able to access your WHM at any time by visiting http://c1234.sgvps.net/whm.

When you accept the certificate, you will be redirected to a page with login form where you should fill in your username and password. The username is your cPanel username and the password is your cPanel password.



Once you log in, you will see the WHM Home/Main page:



In the left column are all the options you have for managing your hosting service. They are divided into several sections and there is a Search field for quickly finding the option you need. The names of the sections are pretty much self-explanatory and we will cover the most important ones in our tutorials. The sections you will probably visit the most are Packages and Account Functions. This is where you can create, edit and remove hosting packages and accounts.
A hosting package is a set of options and features that define a hosting account. Having different packages means you can offer different types of hosting accounts based on their features. For example, you can create different packages based on disk size quota, maximum number of mail accounts, maximum number of databases, etc.
● Add a new Package
To create a new package, find the Packages section and click on Add a Package.



Alternatively, you can just type in Add a Package in the search field.

Let's call the new package Basic and the disk space and bandwidth to Unlimited & Place the desired limits on the other resources as well. You can also choose to allow CGI Access (this is enabled by default and we advise you to leave it that way) You can also change the cPanel theme (we would choose paper_lantern here), choose a Feature List (default in this case) and select a Locale (English in our example).

Here's what our Basic package looks like:



To save it, click the blue Add button at the bottom of the screen. You should receive a confirmation that the package has been successfully created.
● Edit an existing package
To edit a package, click Edit a Package in the Package section.

The editing screen will present you with the same options as when creating the package. When you are done with the changes, click the Save Changes button to save the modified package. To revert the applied changes, click the Reset button.





Then you should select the package you want to edit and click Edit to modify it.
● Delete a package
To remove an existing package, you should click Delete a Package, select the package you want to delete and click the Delete button to remove it.
