cPanel lets you create email addresses at the domains hosted on your account.
- Log in to cPanel (Shared Hosting/Server).
- In the Email section, click Accounts.
- Complete the on-screen fields, and then click Create Account.
Note: Your Mailbox Quota counts toward your account’s Disk Space Usage.
- If you have trouble adding a cPanel email account to Outlook.com email, check out Outlook.com Postmaster for assistance.
- If your cPanel email accounts aren’t working, you probably need to update your domain name‘s email settings (technically known as its DNS zone file’s MX Records) — we’ve got that information for you in Configuring DNS for your cPanel domain.
If you want to host a domain name‘s website on your server using cPanel®, you have to create an Account in WebHost Manager (WHM).
To Create an Account in cPanel/WHM
- Log in to WebHost Manager using root for your username and your server’s password at https://yourserverip:2087, where yourserverip is your server’s IP address.
- In the Home section, click Account Functions.
- Click Create a New Account.
- Complete the on-screen fields in the Domain Information section.
Note: WHM automatically creates a Username for you based on the first eight characters of your domain name.
- (Optional) Complete the other on-screen fields.
- Click Create.
WebHost Manager displays a results page outlining your new Account. If there are no problems, WebHost Manager displays Account Creation Complete!!! at the bottom of the page.
