    Hello,
    I created my first client Account with his domain. How can he access the domain owner's cPanel?
    Thanks.

    Is this correct? For WHM I use port 2087 and Domain Owners have to use ports 2082 and 2083 ? Because, whe I try to access through port 2087 with the clients credentials, I'm unable to access cpanel.

    This is correct.

    cPanel, the product, is designed as two distinct components. The WebHost Manager is for your use, as the server administrator. cPanel is for your clients' use to manage their individual accounts. Your clients have no need to log into the WHM (unless they are resellers), because the WHM is for your use as the server administrator.

    You cannot log into the WHM as an account user, unless that account is a reseller. Conversely, you cannot log into cPanel as root (unless you click the cPanel icon in Main >> Account Information >> List Accounts; this is called the root override).
