    Im a complete cPanel newbie, and have looked at some tut's, and this forum but am still alittle lost. :confused:
    Ive just got my server and im sitting here looking at whm. There are no accounts on this server. I guess I assumed there would be a hosting account setup allready for my domain, but there isnt. So is it as simple as just seting up a new account? This would be the main account on the server, and used for reselling of course. If this is how I do it what options should I use for this account?
    As you can see im a little lost. If anyone could help walk me through this I would be verry greatful.:D
    Thanks for your time

    I have read guide and a few others, but nothing really answered my questions.
    Do I have to set up a "main" account that all other accounts will go under. For example, do I set up my main account eg. mydomain.com, from witch all other new accounts are made under, or is every account seperate, including the main account "mydomain.com"?

    Every account is separate, including the 'main' account.

    Think of it this way... you have a server, which you can do whatever you like with, including hosting client accounts, as well as you main account. But all of them are simply separate accounts.

    For clients, you create plans, then use the plans when creating accounts.

    But must create them first ;)

    So for your main site, just create a new account :) It's just another site.

    however dont forget to setup your nameservers correctly... thats if your running your own. if your using your dc's then no need to worry about it.
