(WHM >> Home >> Account Functions >> Create a New Account)


Resellers sell cPanel accounts that your server hosts. Resellers own the accounts that they create, and can modify these accounts in the WHM interface.


Make certain to only grant reseller accounts the amount of access that they need, and the ability to create only the types of accounts that they need. Reseller access is only one step away from root access. Create reseller accounts carefully.

Make the account a reseller

To create a reseller account, select the Make the account a reseller checkbox.


You are not required to create any reseller accounts. However, you may wish to create reseller accounts if you intend to host from multiple servers, as it will decrease your overall workload.

Make the account own itself (the user can modify the account)

To allow the new reseller to own the account, select the Make the account own itself checkbox. This setting allows resellers to modify their own hosting packages, which include quotas and limits. It also causes the system to log bandwidth to that reseller’s account, rather than to the root account.
