Adding a cPanel Server to WHMCS

WHMCS can manage cPanel from inside itself. The following steps will walk you through adding a server to WHMCS that is using cPanel.

To create a server that is assigned to your cPanel go to Setup > Products/Services > Products/Services > Servers.


Inside this menu click on “Add New Server.”


After clicking on “Add New Server”, you will be directed the server creation page.

On this page will you need to insert the following information regarding your server:

Name of server
Hostname of server
Server IP address
IP addresses assigned to the server
Monthly fees for server
Datacenter location
The maximum number of accounts that can be placed on the server
Nameservers for the server along with each IP address for the Nameserver.

All of this information is inside your cPanel control panel. After your server information is added, select “cPanel” from the drop down list and enter your WHM username and password in the “Server Details” section.


Once selecting cPanel from the server list and you have added your WHMS username and password click on the red “Test Connection” button to make sure everything is configured correctly.

After you have finished testing your server, mark the “Secure” box to use the SSL mode for all connections from WHMCS to the server. Once this is completed, click on “Save Changes” to finish adding your server.
