Overview

cPanel's WebHost Manager (WHM) is a web application that provides administrative control of your Virtual Private Server (VPS). This can be used to add domains, manage hosting features, and perform basic maintenance, similar to cPanel. However, the advantage of WHM is that it allows you to perform server level changes which are not available with cPanel. WHM can be accessed in two primary ways which are outlined below.

SECURITY WARNING IN BROWSER:
When accessing WHM for the first time, your browser may prompt a security warning. This is a normal part of the process due to the type of SSL WHM uses. You can continue by making a security exception in your browser.

Account Center

  1. Log into your Media Temple Account.
  2. Select the blue ADMIN button for your VPS server.
