Choosing What cPanel Themes Are Available to My Clients

Changing the theme of your cPanel account(s) is another feature you can do within your Web Host Manager (WHM). The WHM not only allows you to assign a theme when creating a new package, but it also allows you to edit the theme of a specific cPanel account or multiple cPanels within a Package all at the same time.

Is there a need to change cPanel themes?

That really depends on you. The functionality of changing the cPanel theme does not directly affect your hosted websites or application; however, it affects how you use the control panel. This feature is especially useful for resellers who want to customize and apply their brands to their user accounts.

This article discusses the following topics.


How to customize your cPanel theme

The Customization section within WHM allows you to customize your cPanel theme. You can upload your company logo, select the colors of your main menu, upload your own favicon, update help links, and add your company's public contact information.
