    There is no default. That information is provided when you install or from your DC.

    That info is provided by your hosting provider. Ask them what they set it to.

    If though you ARE the hosting company, you first need to setup an account in WHM before accessing cPanel client.

    Read my post - are you the server admin or the client?

    Don't ask for help if your not willing to participate to get the answer.

    If you mean does it matter if you are the end customer or the hosting provider, YES it does matter.

    It sounds to me like you signed up for a hosting account at a hosting company, (probably a-h), and you want to know what your account username and password are. If that's the case, only your hosting provider can tell you. Cpanel is NOT a hosting provider.

    If you got your own server, you won't have a cpanel account until you create one in WHM.
