    Hi
    As part of migrating to WHM/cPanel, we need to move the server status pages (WHMCS) from our previous systems running Plesk.
    On Plesk we could create a hosting account / subscription for the webservers hostname and then store the status page there, while still keeping the controlpanel access intact and actually use .htaccess to redirect users visting https://srv01.domain.tld to https://srv01.domain.tld:8443.

    How would I get a similar situation with WHM/cPanel? Can I simply create a hosting account for srv01.domain.tld and upload the .htaccess and WHMCS status pages to there?

    Hello,

    You shouldn't create an account with a domain name that matches your server's hostname. However, you could setup an account for an alternate subdomain (e.g. statuspage.domain.tld) and upload the content to that account.

    Thank you.

    Hi
    So what you are suggesting is that I create a statuspage01.domain.tld for srv01.domain.tld and a statuspage02.domain.tld for srv02.domain.tld?

    But what about the website hosted on domain.tld? Will that not be a problem, when domain.tld is hosted on srv01.domain.tld and I suddenly create a hosting account on srv02.domain.tld for statuspage02.domain.tld?

    That shouldn't be an issue as long as you setup the "A" records for those subdomains in the DNS zone of "domain.tld" on the server that hosts the DNS for it.

    Thank you.
