Add User – User Manager – cPanel

Learn How to Add User in User Manager – cPanel. The User Manager interface allows you to manage your Subaccounts. Subaccounts use the same login and password information for email, FTP, and Web Disk services. The system synchronizes the password of each of the Subaccount’s allowed services. This interface does not allow you to create new cPanel accounts.
