If you are a web developer looking forward to setting up your own reseller hosting then this lesson will guide you step-by-step in creating your own reseller account on a Dedicated Server or VPS of Sangkrit.net.
What is a Reseller Account?
A reseller account is a special account created from WHM of a Dedicated Server or VPS. It is a cPanel account with more privileges.
The system allows reseller accounts access to a limited version of the WHM interface, which allows them to manage the cPanel accounts that they sell.
A reseller can allocate system resources on individual cPanel hosting accounts and then sell them to his clients.
To start up with a reseller account, you must own a Dedicated Server or VPS. Read our lesson on configuring a server at Sangkrit.net to start with WHM and cPanel.
How To Manage Reseller Accounts?
You can manage reseller accounts using one of the following WHM user interfaces:
- The Resellers section (Home -> Resellers) provides you access to all of the reseller features.
- The Reseller Center interface (Home -> Resellers -> Reseller Center) allows you to add or remove reseller privileges and provides links to all of the other reseller features.
By default, the system grants a set of limited privileges to reseller accounts. But you can add more privileges to any reseller account using the Edit Reseller Nameservers and Privileges interface present in Home -> Resellers -> Edit Reseller Nameservers and Privileges section.
