For cPanel & WHM 11.46


Resellers sell cPanel accounts that can also be hosted on your server. The accounts that are created by the reseller are also owned by the reseller, and the reseller will be able to modify these accounts through the WHM interface.

Make the account a reseller

Select the  Make the account a reseller  box if the new account is intended for a reseller.

  • You are not required to create any reseller accounts. However, this may be ideal 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)

If you wish to allow the new reseller to own the account, select the  Make the account own itself  box. This will allow resellers to change their own hosting packages, which will include quotas and limits. It will also cause bandwidth to be logged to that reseller’s account, rather than to the root account.


It is important to make sure that your resellers have only the amount of access that they need, and only the ability to create the types of accounts they need. Reseller access is one step away from root access and should be treated with care. 


Next, proceed to the  DNS Settings  section.
