    I will like to create a customised default html page on my cPanel for all new created accounts.

    Please somebody can tell me how to create the default html page for new account created from my cPanel WHM?

    Simply edit/replace the index.html file in your skeleton directory. Note you can also place images or other files in your skeleton directory as well. Anything in your skeleton directory is copied to the public_html directory of users you create.

    To determine what your skeleton directory is, login to WHM and in the "Account Functions" section click on "Skeleton Directory" and the path at the top of the page in bold is the path to your skeleton directory.

    Thank you.

    I got the path (/home/xxxxxxxx/cpanel3-skel) from my WHM but I don't know where and how to upload my customised .html page into the path.

    Can I upload the files from cPanel or where do I upload file into the path?

    With xxxxxxxx being your username, as soon as you go to File Manager in the cPanel interface or login through Web Disk or FTP - you should see a folder "cpanel3-skel"

    Simply go into that directory and then you can upload your customized index.html there.

    Note this will not affect user accounts which have already been created, only new ones created starting from the time of you uploading that new index.html.
