    Does anybody know if there is a function in WHM that when you make a new account to copy a default template index.html to the account automatically.

    cheers,

    In WHM, at top of left menu type in skeleton and you'll get 1 result to click. There you see this message:


    If, like many, you setup your server with a main reseller (you) so as not to have to use root access all the time, in your main account (you, not root) you will have your own /cpanel3-skel/ directory.

    In there you can place anything you'd like all accounts to have on setup. Create all accounts using that main reseller via WHM and the contents get copied from your /cpanel3-skel/ to the users account.

    Personally I like to place a nice landing page, a robots.txt, a blank favicon, and all error pages. (to prevent errors in the logs about missing files) And a simple text file explaining what these files are for and some other tidbits to get them started.

    HTH.
