 WHM is the section where server-level changes are made. Resellers have a restricted access to WHM, but with the "​root"​ user, you can access all of the server-level settings. For more information about the options available in the WHM interface, you can use [[https://​documentation.cpanel.net/​display/​ALD/​WHM+Home+Interface|this page]] to read about the different sections organized similarly to how they are organized within WHM. WHM is the section where server-level changes are made.

-The first time you access WHM, it is likely that the server'​s hostname does not yet resolve to the server, so you will need to use the IP-based url to access it. If you have a VPS and are not sure of the IP address of your server, you can check it from your My Knownhost page as described [[my-knownhost:​manage-services:​vps-control:​list-ips|here]]. If you have a Dedicated Server, you will need to refer to your Welcome Email to find your server'​s IP address. If you are still not sure, you can [[my-knownhost:​howto-login#​submitting_the_ticket|open a Support Ticket]] so that we can help you check. For our example, the Primary IP Address of our hypothetical server will be "​x.x.x.x"​--that means you will need to replace that portion of the url with whatever the IP address of your server is.+The first time you access WHM, it is likely that the server'​s ​[[general:​how-to-choose-a-hostname|hostname]] ​does not yet resolve to the server, so you will need to use the IP-based url to access it.

 In our VPS template, this is disabled by default, but if you have a specific reason you want resellers to be able to make pages like this, it can be enabled.

 +You may also want to consider enabling "Allow AutoSSL to replace invalid or expiring non-AutoSSL certificates"​ in [[control-panels:​cpanel-whm:​autossl|AutoSSL]]. By default, this is disabled, to help prevent an OV or EV certificate from being accidentally replaced by a DV one, but if you have domains that already have certificates from another provider that you would like to start using AutoSSL for instead, you will need to enable this.
