Linking my WHM account to Upmind

This article shows resellers how to link a WHM account to an Upmind account. After linking accounts, the next step is to create a hosting package on Upmind. That is where you name the package, configure details, and set billing terms.

You need to have an Upmind account and a WHM reseller account with us.

Add the server to Upmind
The first step is to configure a new provision configuration. This is how you add web servers and domain providers via APIs.

  • Log in to your Upmind account.
  • Click Settings.
  • On the next page, click Provision configurations.
  • Click the Add new configuration button to add a WHM server account. A new panel displays.
  • The screenshot below shows two active services (domain hosting and web hosting).

On the new panel:

Enter a unique name for the service.
Click the PROVISION CATEGORY field and select Web Hosting. A new field displays.

Select cPanel

  • Set the protocol (e.g. HTTPS).
  • Enter the hostname. (see below)
  • Enter 2087 for the port.
  • Enter the WHM username. (see below)
  • Enter the WHM API key. (see below)
  • Enter the server location.
  • Enter Zalvis for hosting provider. Your clients will not see this.
  • Check the box to accept new accounts.
  • Click Create.
  • Copying WHM Information

To complete all the fields in the panel described above, you need to find and copy three pieces of information on your WHM account.

  • Hostname
  • WHM Username
  • API key

To quickly locate the correct information:

  • Log in to your WHM
  • The hostname is the server hostname
  • The username is displayed on the top right
  • The API key is accessed through WHM -> Manage API Tokens

  • Next, enter a name for your token.
  • Once you have done so, click ‘Save’.
  • After this, go back to the Upmind page and paste the value you just generated into the API Key field.
