The Difference Between WHM and cPanel

This video demonstrates the differences between cPanel and WHM. It will also guide you in how to navigate between the two systems.

Note: These examples in the video use older versions of WHM. The steps will be the same for other versions; however, the button locations may differ.

The Web Host Manager (WHM) is an application that allows administrative control within your VPS or Dedicated server. Within WHM, you create individual cPanel accounts, add and remove domains, manage hosting features.

cPanel is the site management panel where each account holder controls their particular account settings. Creating email accounts and managing their files for a specific domain, for example, would be tasks performed in cPanel rather than WHM.
