How to Configure Branding in WHM

If you're on a hosting plan with WHM (Reseller, VPS, or Dedicated hosting), you can apply your own "brand" in your cPanels. This feature in WHM allows you to customize some parts of the cPanel and webmail. This is especially useful for Reseller customers who want to create their own "unique vibe" in their clients' cPanels.
