Hello deo_hai_van,

You would need to create an account first in WHM > Create a New Account area. There you would input the domain name for the domain you'll be using. After creation, then you can either log into cPanel using https://IP#:2083/ or https://domain.com:2083 and go to File Manager to upload the files into public_html folder. Otherwise, you can connect using an FTP client (such as Filezilla) to upload the files.

Thanks.

yes I have created a new account and specified the domain name. But how come I could not log into Cpanel. I have tried all the ways you suggested. Any idea?

Hello,

Sorry, I put the WHM port for the url. I meant to put 2083 instead. I've revised my above post with the right port numbers.

You should also be able to log into cPanel in WHM if you go to List Accounts area and click the cPanel icon there.

Thanks.
