How to add a package to WHM

cPanel accounts always have an associated package, which governs its resource allocation. Settings such as disk space limit, amount of email addresses allowed, database limits, domain limits and even how many email the domain on the cPanel account is allowed to send per hour.

We recommend creating a package (or packages) on your WHM Reseller hosting / WHM cPanel server to ensure that your cPanel accounts all have the correct limits set.

Creating a new package:

Firstly, log into your WHM account. If you are unsure on how to do this, please view the following help article - 'How to log into WHM'

Once logged in, from your WHM home screen click on 'Add a Package'

Alternatively you can also access the Add a Package page by typing in 'Add a Package' in the search box, located in the top left of your WHM area, then click on 'Add A Package'

On the Add a Package page, you will firstly be asked to give the package a name.

Enter a name that will enable you easily remember what the package basics are. For example, in this guide we will call our package: 'Demopackage_1gb',  If we were to ever then select this package for a cPanel account, we would know it has a 1GB disk space limit set.

Once you've entered a package name, you will then need to set the resources for the package, as listed below:

Once the resources are set, the final options are within the 'Settings' box.

Here you can either leave these as their defaults (as shown in the example below), or enable / disable as needed.

Once done, click on the 'Add' button at the bottom of the page. Once this package has saved you will see a green Success! message appear.

You can now use the new package when creating new cPanel accounts, or adjust existing cPanel accounts to the new package.
