A General Overview

There are two distinct interfaces contained in the package of cPanel and WHM. A completely different aspect of web hosting is controlled by each of the interfaces. The differences between these two interfaces are given below:

  • WHM or Web Host Manager- The primary functionality of WHM is to allow users for managing their server and the websites on it. Also does it allow the user to manage all the settings of the server and the configurations. WHM is considered as the ‘backend’ of the product package.
  • CPanel- The function of cPanel is to allow website owners to manage their websites.

Therefore, cPanel is considered as the ‘frontend’ of the product package.

In case you are planning to restore your cPanel account, make sure you do not create the account in WHM prior to restoring it.

How do you access cPanel and WHM?

In order to access cPanel and WHM from the web browser, you need to peruse the directions given in the cPanel’s ‘how to log in to your server or account?’

The root user here is the highest level system user. As a conventional root user, one can easily access and make various alterations to anything on the system. It is strongly recommended to not share or disclose a user’s root password.

How do you restore your cPanel Account?

Obtaining a backup archive or a cpmove file of the old account is of paramount importance prior to restoring your cPanel account. You can either generate the backup archive in cPanel’s Backup Interface (cPanel >> Home >> Files >> Backup) or simply obtain the cpmove file from your hosting provider.

Make sure you do not create the cPanel account that you are planning to restore and secondly, do not change the name of your cPanel backup archive or the cpmove archive.

To begin with it, you need to place your cpmove archive or the backup file in the home directory. Users need to make use of the SFTP client in order to transfer the file to their respective servers.

You have to access the Restore a Full Backup cpmove file interface after having moved your backup archives and then click on the cPanel username to restore.
