WHM provides a graphical interface for managing a range of hosting features, including creating and managing hosting accounts, setting up and managing domain names, managing email accounts, creating and managing databases, and monitoring server performance and usage. It also provides tools for managing security and backups, and for configuring server-level settings.
Through WHM, users can create and manage multiple cPanel accounts, which are individual control panels for managing a specific website or domain. WHM allows for the creation of custom packages with different hosting features and resource allocations, which can be used to set up different hosting plans for clients.
WHM is a powerful tool for managing multiple websites and hosting accounts, providing a streamlined and efficient way to manage hosting features and resources on a server.
