    Is it possible to set cPanel/WHM to create a default holding page is automatically when an account created?

    I'm wanting to have something with my company details and some graphics, but nothing particularly fancy.

    Any suggestions?

    You can set a default holding page using WHM > Web Template Editor > Default Website Page area.

    You would also be able to put the same contents into an index.html or any index page name you want (like index.php) at /root/cpanel3-skel/public_html location. Anything in /root/cpanel3-skel/public_html will be copied to new accounts that are created.

    And if you're setting up accounts as a reseller (preferred, IMO) you can place any files you want all accounts to have in this directory:
    /home/resellerusername/cpanel3-skel/public_html/

    You can place a landing page, favicon, error pages, documents to get a new user started, and whatever else you want in there and it will be copied on account creation to the new users account.


    HTH!
