Add a Hosting Package in WHM


    This article describes the process of creating a Hosting Package in WHM.

    Create a package

    To create a package, perform the following steps:

    1. Enter the desired package name in the Package Name text box.

    2. Enter the required information in the Resources and Settings sections. The Settings section also allows you to change settings for some third-party packages, if the package provider configured this ability. For more information on each option, see the tables below.
    3. Click Add.

    Resources Options

    You can make changes to the following options, which are listed under Resources:

     Disk quota (MB)

     The maximum amount of space on the server’s hard drive that the account can use, measured in Megabytes (MB).

    Monthly bandwidth (MB)

    The amount of information that the account can transfer each month, measured in Megabytes (MB).

    Max FTP Accounts The maximum number of FTP accounts for the account.
    Max Email Accounts The maximum number of email accounts for the account.
    Max Email Lists The maximum number of Mailman mailing lists for the account. For more information, read our Mailing Lists documentation.
    Max Databases

    The maximum number of each available type of SQL database.

    Max Sub Domains The maximum number of subdomains for the account.
    Max Parked Domains The maximum number of parked domains (aliases) for the account.
    Max Addon Domains The maximum number of addon domains for the account.
    Maximum Hourly Email by Domain Relayed

    The maximum number of emails that any domain on the account can send per hour. This value defaults to Unlimited (represented by a "0").

    Maximum Percentage of Failed or Deferred Messages a Domain May Send Per Hour

    The maximum percentage of failed or deferred messages that a domain on the account can send before your server temporarily blocks outgoing mail from that domain.

    • The system examines outgoing and local mail over the previous hour to determine whether the domain exceeds the limit. 
    • When a domain exceeds the limit, it cannot send mail until the domain no longer exceeds the limit.

    Settings Options

    You can make changes to the following options, which are listed under Settings:

    Dedicated IP

    A static IP address that the account will not share with other accounts unless the user specifies an account with which to share an IP address.


    • You cannot edit this option after package creation. To change this setting, you must create a new package.
    • We recommend this setting for packages that you will apply to reseller accounts.
    Shell Access

    Allows the user to access the server through a command line interface.

    CGI Access

    Allows the account to execute CGI scripts.

    Digest Authentication at account creation

    Enables Digest Authentication support for Web Disk access over a clear text or unencrypted connection. Users with Windows Vista®, Windows 7 , and Windows 8® operating systems require this support.

    cPanel Theme Select a theme from the menu.
    Feature List

    Select a feature list from the menu.Feature lists define which cPanel features are available to cPanel users. To edit or create a feature list, use WHM's Feature Manager interface (Home >> Packages >> Feature Manager).

    Locale Select a locale from the menu.

    Package Extensions


    You cannot add or remove package extensions from an existing package through WHM. You may either add a package or use API calls to modify package extension data if you wish to use a different set of package extensions.

    If package extensions are installed on your server, the Package Extensions section appears at the bottom of this interface. If you wish to include a package extension in a package, select the checkbox next to the extension name.

    Some extensions may include variables that you can change.
