Please refer error message below:
What does it mean and where do I go to fix it?

Create a new Account

Account Creation Status: failed (Sorry, a DNS entry for already exists, please delete it first (from all servers in the dns cluster) )
Sorry, a DNS entry for already exists, please delete it first (from all servers in the dns cluster)

This means you must make sure that domain does not already exist as an addon domain. If it does, you must delete it from that cPanel, first.

If it is NOT already hosted as an addon domain (or its own cPanel), then you need to remove the existing DNS entry.

To do that, login to WHM and go to "Delete a DNS Zone" on the left hand menu. Once there, select the domain name you are trying to add, and then click the Delete button.

Now, try creating your new account.

Trying to log into WHM, using user name and password from the welcome email, but can't log in; it just keeps bringing up the sign in window over and over. What do I do now? I need to make changes on my website. Thanks.
