    Is there a way to reuse your account settings on all new accounts with out having to manually do it each time? An add-on or something that would let WHM save your desired default new account set up. A clone account utility that would give everything the same except domain and password.

    That's going to be a time saver. I had never noticed that feature. Thanks

    There are two main areas you will want to look at ...

    1. Packages
    2. Features

    The previously mentioned "Packages" section allows you to create
    standardized account plans so that when you create a new account,
    you just simply select the account you wish to setup and it will
    deploy the plan you choose with whatever features and limits you
    have pre-selected for that specific plan type.

    The "Features" section works hand in hand with "Packages" and allows
    you to create custom feature lists that you can attach to package plans
    so that different account plans (packages) can have different features
    such as giving one account plan "subdomain" access and not another, etc.

    There is also special feature lists (default and disabled) which allow you
    to activate and disable features globally for the entire server so for
    example if you don't want anyone having "SSH terminal" access or "cronjobs",
    you could do this using the "disabled" feature list.

    Once all your plans and features are setup, you just simply select the plan
    you want from a nice drop down list when you create any new account
    and it will do all the customizations for you.
