How To Articles

Changing the login page of WHMCS can be a great way to add a personal touch to your client’s experience. In this article, I will guide you through the process of customizing the login page in WHMCS, using my own experience and personal touches.


As a web hosting provider, I understand the importance of creating a unique and professional brand image. The login page is often the first point of contact for clients, so customizing it can help create a lasting impression. WHMCS, a popular client management and billing platform, allows you to easily modify the login page to match your brand’s identity.

Step 1: Accessing the WHMCS File Manager

The first step is to access the WHMCS File Manager. To do this, log in to your WHMCS admin area and navigate to the “Utilities” section in the top menu. From there, click on “File Manager”. This will open up the File Manager interface where you can make changes to your WHMCS files.

Step 2: Locating the Login Page Template

Once you are inside the File Manager, navigate to the “templates” folder. Inside the “templates” folder, locate the folder that corresponds to your active WHMCS theme. For example, if you are using the “six” theme, the folder will be named “six”.

Step 3: Customizing the Login Page

Inside the theme folder, you will find a file named “login.tpl”. This file controls the layout and design of the login page. Right-click on the “login.tpl” file and select “Edit”.

Now, you can personalize the login page by adding your own HTML and CSS code. You can change the background color, add a logo, or even include a custom welcome message. Let your creativity shine!

One personal touch I added to my login page was a custom background image that reflects the nature of my brand. I also added a short welcome message to provide a warm and friendly introduction for clients.

Remember to save your changes after making modifications to the “login.tpl” file.

Step 4: Previewing and Testing

Once you have made the desired changes, it’s time to preview and test the modified login page. To do this, log out of your WHMCS admin area and visit the login page. You should see the changes you made reflected on the login page.

Take some time to test the login page with different devices and browsers to ensure it looks and functions as expected. This will help you provide a seamless experience for your clients.


Customizing the login page of WHMCS is a simple yet effective way to personalize your client’s experience and create a strong brand identity. By following these steps and adding your personal touches, you can make your login page stand out and leave a lasting impression on your clients.

Remember, it’s important to strike a balance between customization and usability. Keep the login page clean, professional, and user-friendly to ensure a positive experience for your clients.
