A reseller account will have the ability to create other accounts on your server. Accounts created by the reseller will be owned by the reseller and the reseller will be able to modify the accounts according to their own specific needs. However, there is an option you can set if you do not want a particular reseller to have the ability to modify their account (See Step 3 below). It is important to make sure that your resellers are restricted to the amount of access they need, and have only the ability to create the types of accounts they need. Reseller access is one step away from root access and should be handled accordingly.
NOTE: A quick way to tell if a user has reseller privileges already added is to view the "Remove Reseller Privileges" drop down menu.
- To add a reseller account, first note that you must have a hosting account already setup on the server. Please take a look at the Create a New Account document to learn how to create a hosting account on your server.
- Next, select the username (domain_name) from the "Add Reseller Privileges" drop down menu.
- By default, the "Make the new reseller own their own account" check box is already checked. If you do not want the reseller to own their account, uncheck the check box. (Note: If the check box is checked, the reseller will be able to modify their account.)
- Once you have selected the user account you want to add reseller privileges to from the drop down menu, click on the ok button.
- When the page loads, you should see a statement similar to the following:
"Reseller privileges have been granted to YOUR_USER_ACCOUNT
