You must have a VPS or Dedicated Server with root WHM to do this.
  1. Log in to root WHM.
    Check out this article: How Do I Log into the Web Host Manager (WHM)?
  2. Navigate to the search bar at the top left of the screen, search the keyword "create."
  3. Click on Create a New Account under Account Functions.

    • (Optional) You can check to Make the account own itself so the owner can modify the account.

Your reseller customer will now be able to access theirdomain.com/whm and log in with the cPanel username and password you just created.
