Managing users in cPanel’s User Manager

In this article, you will learn how to use the user manager in cPanel. The user manager allows you to create, manage and delete subaccounts. Subaccounts use the same login and password for email, FTP, and Web Disk services. By creating a subaccount it does not allow the user to login via cPanel with that account and will have to access email, FTP and Web Disk externally.
