    Hello

    If lets say my domain is domainx.com and my host name is host.domainx.com, can i create a website at domainx.com without having to create a new user in WHM for a cPanel?

    Unless you manually edit index.html in /usr/local/apache/htdocs
    I do not recommend that.
    Simply create user and give him domainx.com domain. Then you will have proper public_html.
