  • If you upload a (.xls) file, you will see the option, “Treat first row as column headers.” If the first row of your spreadsheet is column headers, make sure the option is checked.
  • If you upload a (.csv) file, in addition to the “Treat first row as column headers” option, you will also have a “Select Delimiter” option.

The next page will display a list of the addresses that were in your uploaded list. Here you can change the header for each column if necessary. There is also an option to “Select the domain for the users in the list.” If your cPanel account only has one domain attached, there’s no need to change the setting.
