There are two options available for creating new accounts: the Create Account Wizard
and the Create a New Account
- The Create Account Wizard leads you through all the options for setting up a new account and is the only way to reserve a server for one website. There is a lot of help built into this wizard.
- Create a New Account is ideal for quickly setting up Web Site Owner (WSO) accounts, but can be used for reseller accounts as well. Select the Create a New Account menu from the Account Functions section in the left pane of the Reseller Interface.
- Important:: Once you set the account's username and domain name during account creation, you cannot change them.
Each section below contains a description of a particular section in the Create a New Account
The Create Account Wizard and Create a New Account features
are available in the Account Functions section.
Enter the website's domain name (such as
), a username and password for the account holder to log in with, and an email address that will receive warnings and messages from Enkompass.
You can also assign a hosting plan to the account. When a plan's settings are edited, all the accounts using the plan are updated with the new limits. If possible, keep your accounts in a plan, so you don't have to update each account manually.
The Account Information section of the Create a New Account screen.
This section allows you to select whether or not the new account will be a reseller, as well as define a WSO role for the new account. WSO roles define which WSO features accounts are able to use.
If you wish for the new account to be a reseller, click the appropriate checkbox.
To define a WSO role for the account, select the appropriate role using the WSO Role
pull-down menu. If you wish to define a new WSO role, select the Custom(*)
option and make the selections you wish to use in the resulting pop-up window.
The Options Section
Creating reseller accounts
Resellers in Enkompass can be hierarchical, with one reseller owning another and inheriting the owner's limits. The Admin user will create the top-level resellers and set their limits. Resellers can log in and create other reseller and user accounts, and set limits that do not exceed their own limits.
- Admin (and resellers with Admin privileges)
- Remote Servers
- IP Addresses
- System Backups
- WSO Users
- FTP accounts
- Mail Accounts
- User Backups
If you have not selected a plan for the account or wish to modify the plan you have selected, you can use this section to make the modifications. Simply enter the desired values in the appropriate fields.
If you wish for a particular setting to have no limit, you can click the checkbox that corresponds to the setting that you wish to make unlimited.
The Account Limits Section
Web server settings
This section allows you to define the new account's IP address. You can select the new account's IP address using the Select IP
If you wish for the new account to use a dedicated IP address, click the Dedicated IP
If you are using secure HTTP or FTP, you must assign a dedicated IP address.
The Web Server Settings Section
Mail server settings
This section allows you to select which mail server the new account will use. You can make your selection by using the pull-down menu.
Database server settings
This section allows you to select which MS SQL and MySSQL servers the new account will use. You can make your selection using one or both of the available pull-down menus.
This section allows you to select which language, theme, and skin the new account will use. Simply make the desired selections from the available pull-down menus.
The Preferences Section
User contact information
You should enter the account holder's contact information here. None of this information is required to create the account; however, it is generally a good practice to have some contact information for each of your account owners.
