    Hello everyone,

    I am new to cpanel, i have recently got a dedicated centos server with cpanel/whm.

    I have never played around with configuring email and domain name hosting and how about going to configure it on whm. I would appreciate any support i can get.

    Thanks for your time and efforts.

    Create a cPanel account

    To host a domain's Web site or e-mail, you will need to create an account for that domain in the WebHost Manager. I recommend reviewing the following section of our documentation:

    Create a New Account

    Once you have created the account, you can upload your site's content via FTP. You can also log into the cPanel for the account and create an e-mail mailbox. I recommend the following sections of our documentation for logging into cPanel and creating a mailbox:

    Accessing cPanel
    cPanel Mail
    Email Accounts

    Lastly, once you have created a cPanel account, uploaded your site content, and created one or more mailboxes, you will need to make sure the domain resolves to your server. If you run your own nameservers, change the authoritative nameservers for the domain at the domain registrar. If the domain's DNS is hosted elsewhere, change the DNS records in the authoritative nameservers to point to your server.
