    I log into my WHM and create a new account, and the account always has root privileges.

    This of course ends up in me getting an email from Hackcheck.

    Is there a way to create a new account without it having UID 0?

    A new account should not have UID 0. This is not normal behavior. It would be best if you can submit a ticket so we can take a look at this for you.
