Hi and new to the forum and new to reselling.

My question is...when I set up packages in WHM do I need to also make an account for my reseller domain name or does it just stay as a default and do nothing with it in WHM?

Thanks in advance.

There is already an account using your reseller domain name, the reseller account itself, so you can not create a cPanel account using that same domain.

Hello :)

Yes, the reseller account is simply a standard cPanel account that has been granted reseller privileges. It's typically listed under "List Accounts" in Web Host Manager, but sometimes your hosting provider may keep it owned by the "root" user.

Thank you.

Thank you Michael for your information. I also hope it will help other new resellers just as it's done for me.

Happy Holidays everyone! :)
