Advantages of the Separate CPanel Account For The Subdomain
- Security: You can improve security by separating subdomains into separate cPanel accounts. It reduces the risk of affecting other subdomains within the account if one subdomain is compromised.
- Isolation: It provides independence and isolation for each subdomain to have its own cPanel account. Having separate cPanel accounts for each subdomain can be beneficial when you need to grant different individuals or teams control over specific subdomains without impacting others. You can even have different configurations for subdomains.
Disadvantages of the Separate CPanel Account For The Subdomain
- High Cost: cPanel provides an account-based license so having a separate cPanel account increases your license cost.
- Complex to manage multiple cPanel accounts: Managing multiple cPanel accounts can be a complex task if you have a large number of subdomains. It requires more effort to maintain and keep track of each account individually.
Note: To create separate cPanel accounts for the subdomains, you need to enable the Allow WHM users to create subdomains across accounts option in the WHM Tweak Settings. If this option is disabled, you will not be able to create individual cPanel accounts for subdomains.
Ultimately, the decision to create separate cPanel accounts for each subdomain depends on your specific needs.
