When you install WHM onto a droplet, each user has a jailshell account. This is the SSH access they woulld use. So if the cPanel username for your site was bob123, your SSH username would be bob123. This you could login to the droplet using a command like:


That would require points to the WHM itself. You can read on modifying the shell access for your WHM users via this article.
