    Here's my situation: i have one account and i'm not interested in adding more than one account. I have pretty extensive experience with bash cli. WHM is installed and preconfigured by the host.

    I want to use that one account to host many different domains. Thus i'd like to set a different document root for each domain because each website is different.

    Is it a prerequisite to create different accounts for each domain? Or can i have one whm account for several different domains. Also, where is the apache conf file that sets each virtualhost?

    e.g:

    username domain pwd
    userfoo -> domain1.com -> /~userfoo/foobar
    -> domain2.com -> /~userfoo/foobar2

    etc.

    Are you looking for "Addon Domains" ?
    I think I am doing just what you are requesting using that.

    AddonDomain.png If your agreement with the NOC permitts ( $ ) .
    Under the graphical cPanel (Stats show add-on domains nn / nnn), there is a category: Domains which contains the ability to "add on domains".
    The presented form includes the domain, for example: MyXXX-Client.com .
    It suggests an FPT username( MyXXX-Client) and suggests a directory it will create ( public_html/MyXXX-Client ) and
    requests a password for MyXXX-Client FTP usage.

    Directories created by this are all owned by your creating ID/Group ( example: globerunnerseo )

    Does this clairfy?

    Addon Domains

    This will allow you to have 1 "CPANEL" (not WHM) account for multiple domains with different websites.

    If you are looking out for Multiple Domains pointing to the same website, then you need to look at Parked Domains:
