Back to Dedicated Servers

Service Management Tools Page

In your account, you will see two scrollbars come from the left side of your screen when you first log in. The upper bar is labeled Manage and includes several tools depending on the services you have through WestHost.


This icon will load you straight to your default cPanel account so you can quickly get started on managing your site files, e-mail accounts, and more.

Please make sure that your pop-up blocker is either disabled or set to allow as an exception. Otherwise, your cPanel tool may be blocked from opening.


If you purchase the website builder software called Dropclick, there will be an icon included directly from your account so you can quickly create/edit your website and publish it straight from a browser.


The WebHost Manager link loads up the control tools that you have for your server. You can create new cPanel accounts, manage some of the basics for your server configuration, and perform basic DNS functions. While a Managed Dedicated Server does not include root access through WHM, you can still do quite a bit with your server and accounts from here.

IP Manager

If you need more IP addresses for accounts you wish to create from WHM, use the IP Manager to request more. These will automatically populate to your WHM and you can create new accounts to use the additional IPs.

Domain Names

If you've registered or transferred your domains with WestHost the Domain Names tool is great for managing and reviewing those services. You can order new domains, transfer domains into WestHost, and perform WHOIS lookups on domains to check their settings. We also provide a WHOIS Privacy service that you can order and apply to existing WestHost domains if needed.
