For cPanel & WHM version 11.50

  

(Home >> cPanel >> Branding)

Overview

This interface allows you to upload a custom logo, upload a favicon, and modify other aspects of the cPanel interface. Use this interface to quickly modify your users' cPanel dashboards without the need to develop a new style  or write any custom CSS.

This interface stores information in the reseller_info.json file, which exists in either the root user's or reseller's brand directory.

  • If the reseller who owns the account has specified custom branding information, the cPanel user sees the reseller's branding in the cPanel interface.
  • If the reseller has not specified custom branding information, but the root user has specified custom branding information, the cPanel user sees the root user's branding in the cPanel interface.
  • If neither the reseller nor the root user have specified custom branding information, the cPanel user does not see any customizations to the cPanel interface.

Upload custom items

Use the following diagram to see how each entry in the interface affects your customers' dashboard.

 

 

  1. Upload a custom favicon to change the default favicon. Click Choose File in the Favicon section to upload a custom favicon.

  2. If you do not want to upload a custom logo in the Company Logo section, enter the name of your company in the Company Name text box to easily brand the dashboard for your company.

    Note:

    If you use this option, your company name will appear in the default cPanel font. If you wish to change the font style, you must customize cPanel's CSS. For more information about how to create your own cPanel style, read our Develop a Style documentation. 

  3. Enter your documentation website's URL in the Documentation Link text box. 

    The Documentation link points to cPanel's documentation website by default.

  4. Enter your help or support website URL in the Help Link text box. 

    Note:

    The Help link will not appear in the cPanel dashboard until you save a URL.
