Creating your first account is one of the final steps you need to take before your website will be live on the cloud. Thankfully, it's also one of the easier tasks involved. We'll go through the steps of creating an account in both cPanel/WHM.
First login to WHM (Web Host Manager), which is the administrative interface for the cPanel control panel. To do so, you just need to go http://ipaddress.com:2086, where you'll be prompted for the root password. Once you login to WHM, go to the "Create a New Account" section.
The first steps to create your account are to enter your domain, and preferred login information.
If you have installed the RVSkin set, you can select from a list of RVSkins for your control panel theme. If you haven't purchased the RVSkin set, x3 is a default cPanel which still has the full functionality.
In the final section, if you're running an offsite mail server, this is the section you'll set it in using the remote mail exchanger option. If the VPS itself is hosting the mail server (and most will be), then you'll just use the local mail exchanger option.
At this point, you'll want to double check all the options to make sure that everything is correct. If it is, hit that "Create Account" button and watch WHM do it's thing. Once it has completed, you'll see the following confirmation page (and no, I do not use 123$$$terry as my password).
