    Hi there, alright so heres my question. When I make an account it will just show the directory. Is there anyway that when an account is made it has a default index.html page?

    Hello,

    I have found this for your query. Please try to use following steps:

    1. Create the Index Page
    Take a few minutes and design a friendly html document that new visitors will see when they first get their hosting account setup. Once you're done creating the document, save it as index.html

    2. Upload the Document
    FTP to your server and upload the index.html file to the /cpanel3-skel/public_html directory

    The reseller has a username, and the home directory is in: /home/username/ so the directory you want would be in: /home/username/cpanel3-skel/public_html copy the index.html there.
    3. Create a Test Account
    Login to your WHM and create a temporary user account. Once the account is create then visit it and see if your index page shows up. If it doesn't ensure you copied it into the proper directory and check the above steps.

    Regards,
    Shital :)

    Yes, if you have a reseller account simply go to your skeleton directory and upload your index.html file in the public_html directory inside that skeleton directory. The contents of the skeleton directory are copied to all new accounts.

    The location of your skeleton directory is ~/cpanel3-skel where ~ is your home directory.
