Overview

To modify the settings for a new account, select the options that you wish to apply to the account.

Important:

To access all of the options listed below, you must select Select Options Manually under the Package heading.

Setting

OptionDescription
Dedicated IP

Assigns the new account a static IP address. Other accounts do not shared the IP address unless you specifically configure other accounts to use the same IP address.

Note:

We strongly recommend this option for reseller accounts.

  • After you select the Dedicated IP checkbox, select the IP address from the Select the IP Address menu, or select Auto Assign to allow the system to assign an IP address automatically.
  • Unreserved IP addresses populate this menu. For more information about reserved IP addresses, read our Show Edit Reserved IPs documentation.

Note:

If you create a package with this option enabled, you cannot change this option later. 

Shell AccessAllows the user access to the server through the command line interface.
CGI AccessAllows the new account to execute CGI scripts.
Digest Authentication for Web Disk

Enables Digest Authentication support for Web Disk access over a clear text or unencrypted connection.

Notes:

  • You must select this option if your server uses a self-signed certificate.
  • Users with Windows Vista®, Windows® 7, and Windows® 8 operating systems require that you select this option.
cPanel Theme

The theme for the user's cPanel account.

Notes:

  • We strongly recommend that you select paper_lantern. We deprecated the x3 theme in cPanel & WHM version 54, and will remove it soon. For more information, read our It's time to say goodbye to x3 blog post.
  • Choose x3 or paper_lantern for accounts that host websites.
  • Choose x3mail for accounts that only serve mail.
LocaleSelect the new account's language from the Locale menu.
