Hello Everyone,

Well this is my first post and I am considering cPanel. I currently use Hsphere and administrate a cluster of 4 boxes.

I was reading a lot of about cPanel before I get it and start using it and i'm not 100% sure how the "service domain" (or so it's called in Hsphere) works in cPanel. By service domain I mean my domain where I host cpanel (ex. mydomain.net). Would I create a new account to host it, or is it controlled from somewhere in WHM? :confused:

Do you mean the hostname? That is setup after the installation of cpanel, first time you log in :)

But you can access cpanel via: yourip:2082 (secure https://yourip:2083) or whm via yourip:2086 (secure https://yourip:2087)

Also, you can use any domain on the server the account is hosted on instead of your IP to access both WHM and cPanel.

Hope this helps. :)

Hello Everyone,

Well this is my first post and I am considering cPanel. I currently use Hsphere and administrate a cluster of 4 boxes.

cPanel is user-centric rather than domain-centric. So to create the equivalent of a service domain in cPanel/WHM, you would go to WHM and in the "Account Functions" section click on "Create a new account." This allows you to create an account and associate a domain with that account.

This offers an extreme level of flexibility, so if a user's company changes names and now they have a different domain - you can quickly change the domain associated with that account and they wont need to re-upload anything or even change their stored user/passwords in their FTP clients.

Note that you can associate multiple domains with a single account by using the add-on and parked domains feature.

Also, since it's mentioned a lot in Hsphere documentation, I will note that cPanel/WHM does support third level domains and you can create an account associated with a third level domain if you desire, rather than having a single account managing the domain as well as its sub-domains. While atypical, this is a commonly asked question here on the forums.
