When you create an account in WHM, you can select quite a few resource limits on the account, ranging from disk space to allowing SSH access. But what if you plan on using the same settings for multiple accounts? That's where packages come in. A package is a list of resource limits that you can assign to any account, new or old (upgrades/downgrades), without having to change the values manually.  Please note, this requires either a reseller account, VPS or dedicated server. Shared hosting   plans are not allowed to create accounts, so they can not create packages. Adding a package Sign in to WHM by visiting or

It's better to use something that will easily identify the limits. For example, a package with 1GB of diskspace could be named 1000.

Select the limits you'd like the package to have in the Resources section by either entering a value in the boxes, or selecting the Unlimited option.In the next section, Settings, you can set if the package includes a dedicated IP (Due to ARIN regulations, it is not recommended that this be selected. All IP addresses should be requested.), if SSH access is allowed, whether or not FrontPage and CGI are enabled. You can even select the theme that will be used. Note: FrontPage extensions are not recommended, and will actually be removed by cPanel soon.Once you have all of the options set up how you'd like them, click Add.
