Creating An ACL List

What is an ACL List? ACL Lists allow you to save and recall a set of Feature Limits for a reseller. These lists work in the same way that packages work for normal accounts. Saving ACL lists allows you to create resellers with complex options quickly.

The "Create an ACL List" feature is located on the same page as the Reseller Center. Follow the instructions below to get started.

  1. When the Reseller Center page loads, scroll down to the "Feature Limits" section. Disregard the "Load an ACL List" drop down menu for now.
