What is the difference between WebHost Manager (WHM) and cPanel



What is the difference between WebHost Manager and cpanel

This demo assumes you've already logged in to WebHost Manager.

Now let's learn what the difference is between WHM and cPanel.

WHM is a reseller's, or hosting provider's control panel. It is what resellers or hosting providers use to create and manage end-user hosting accounts.

cPanel on the other hand, is the end user's control panel. It is what the hosting provider's customers use to manage their individual hosting accounts.

We are currently logged in to WHM, so let's go take a look at our list of hosting accounts.

Click the account information link.

Then click the List Accounts link.

Here is a list of accounts in this WHM. Once again, each of these accounts have their own individual cPanel, and we can login to their cPanel by clicking the corresponding link.

Let's login to the cPanel for demoreseller.com

That's it! As you can see here, we're now in the cPanel control panel for the demoreseller.com hosting account.

WHM admins have the ability to login to their customer's cPanel control panels without their username or password. This can be useful in helping customers learn how to use their cPanel.

Ok, now let's close this window and return to WHM

Welcome back to WHM (WebHost Manager).

This is the end of the tutorial. You now know the difference between cPanel (end user's control panel) and WHM (hosting provider's control panel).
