You may wonder what is the difference between cPanel and WHM. Here’s a quick explanation of the two to avoid confusion.
Difference between cPanel and WHM
cPanel is a login portal where you can manage website and emails. This is used by website owners or web developers to upload files, manage databases, create email accounts, do forwarding and more specific configurations that are associated with website and emails. It also allows to install CMS applications, modify FTP passwords, database user passwords and email account passwords. Modifying the DNS can also be done here for domain names that are added in the account.
WHM is a backend access where you can modify the content and configure the settings inside the cPanel account. It also allows you to create a cPanel account which is available for Dedicated Server, VPS and Reseller hosting accounts. This is also where you can delete or suspend a cPanel account.
