Reseller Account - But Not Reselling

Jul 5, 2007

I currently have a series of websites hosted with HostGator. The thing is, having a series of shared hosting plans starts to add up after a while. What I was considering was purchasing a reseller account (which will save us about $15/month) and then just hosting all our websites from there, obviously, not reselling the plans, just using them internally. For the savings, it seems like a logical thing to do. When we purchased shared plans, I bought bigger plans than we need, expecting the sites to grow (which some have, others have not).

Has anyone done this? Do you suggest it? Would there be a better way than buying a reseller account (We can't afford a dedicated server quite yet)?

How Do You Setup Reseller Account?

May 7, 2008

I'm curious, how do you all Cpanel server owners setup reseller accounts for clients? I find myself doing it this way (providing 2 static IP's, for ns1/ns2)

1. create reseller account
2. ssh > edit nameserverips and manually add ns1/ns2 to the two select IP's of choice
3. change account IP to first main static IP, in whm

Any one else do it this way, or another method? I use WHMCS also, which creates the account automatically, but I have to edit nameserverips and appy ns1/ns2 manually in whm (A dns zone) manually.

Also, I'm wanting to upgrade some of the PHP 4 / MYSQL 4 boxes to PHP 5 / MYSQL 5. Is it worth it, or not? If yes, what methods could I use to assure no side effects for some clients' scripts, or at least some method to help them should an issue arise?

Going From 2 Reseller Account To Dedicated Box

Mar 6, 2008

Me and a friend decided to switch from 2 reseller accounts and get a dedicated box.

What is the best way to set this up? If I understand right we will need a root domain and then create 2 reseller accounts under that.

Is there anywhere I can find a tutorial on this, or can someone point me in the right direction.

Reseller Account Transfer

Sep 29, 2008

I know how to make backups and to transfer each client account separately, but I am just wondering if it is possible to transfer all customer accounts in WHM at once. You see, if for example I have more than 200 customers (hosting accounts) and wish to switch to another hosting company it will be difficult for me to transfer each account separately, thatís why I am asking this question. Has anyone had reseller account transfer experience?

I Lose My Reseller Account

Nov 9, 2007

I didn't know where to put this question so please forgive me if it is the wrong section.

I received an email yesterday from the abuse department of my reseller hosting saying I was overusing the resources. I asked what was causing this as my sites are small and built with cubecart.

I got a reply today asking me about something called mode.exe which is causing load and increasing limits at Average usage stats.

I have no idea what this is so can any of you tell me what it is and how I can resolve this issue as the abuse person recommended a VPS package to me which will cost me a fortune and is something I really shouldn't need for such small sites.

Disable Statistics For Just One Reseller Account

Apr 11, 2009

With my new VPS, I am trying to disable Statistics software (Awstats & Webalizer) for one reseller account (and all account under it).

So I went to

"Statistics Software Configuration" --> "User Permissions" Selected the user and under "configure" unchecked both option. Is that enough??

When I view "Statistics Status Summary" for all users, it still shows them as "green" for that user.

I haven't actually moved anything to this VPS.

WHM/Cpanel :: Suspending A Reseller Account

Jun 26, 2008

I have WHM 11.23.0 cPanel 11.23.3-R25068
FEDORA 4 i686 on standard - WHM X v3.1.0

I had to suspend a reseller account, and I assumed all the accounts owned by that reseller would also be suspended, but they are still online.

Is there a way to suspend all the accounts owned by a reseller at once, without needing to suspend each one individually?

Can someone tell me if I buy a webhosting reseller account, can I charge clients payment using PayPal? I don't really understand how this work.

Actually, I stopped paying him and my site is still up and running. How is this like this?

Crons Not Working In ONE Reseller Account

Jun 7, 2007

I have WHM 10.8.0 cPanel 10.9.0-R10737
Fedora i686 - WHM X v3.1.0

One of my resellers got a bunch of complaints this morning from her own customers that their crons have stopped running. She checked her own sites, and they're not running for her either.

I double checked. They ARE running on the rest of the server. I have no complaints from anybody else on the server, they show from shell as running on the server, and crons are running in the site I'm working on to fix a broken script (in a different reseller account).

Is It Possible To Keep A Mirro Backup Of A Reseller Account?

Sep 13, 2007

Using online backup service, it is possible if we are root or we have a vps or server to keep an exact replica of our site that we can fire off in the event of downtime happened.

Is there a solution where we can keep an exact backup (a mirror) using a reseller account even without root?

(without downloading the files of all the sub account to our own pc of course)

Migrating From A Dedicated Server To A Reseller Account

Jul 30, 2007

I have a dedicated server which I need to migrate all sites to a reseller account on a different host.
It comes down to 6 sites that I must not lose any emails.

On the source server, I have full access to it. It's CentOS, WHM, cPanel, etc. On the destination reseller account (downtownhost), I have access to WHM, and individual cPanel. But I can't see any transfer or restore options on the WHM, though on the individual cPanel account, I see a restore option which states:


This feature allows you to restore parts of your cPanel by uploading your partial backup zip file(s) that you downloaded from the backup feature.

The following can be restored:

* Home Directory
* MySQL Databases
* Email forwarders configuration
* Email filters configuration

My plan is so far:

1) Generate a full backup for each site on the source server.

2) Create the accounts on the destination reseller account. (Is it possible before I update the IP of the nameserver to point to the new server?)

3) Restore the sites with this wizard I mentioned above in each cPanel.

4) Change the nameserver host IP to the new server.

5) Hold my fingers and bless every living creature for a smooth move.

if I could do this any better, trying not to lose any emails in the process.

Transferring Reseller Account Between CPanel Servers

I have 2 cPanel servers with root access and I want to move a reseller account (and about 100 very small domain accounts under it) to the other server. What is the best way to do this and how would be the process ? I guess there is an easier way to migrate it rather than by moving individual domain accounts.

Transfering CPanel Accounts From A Reseller Account To A VPS Without Root Password

Nov 26, 2008

I was just wondering if someone has made a new tool/script yet that will allow yo to transfer CPanel accounts in bulk (not the old way of doing them one by one) to another server (VPS/Dedicated) without having root access?

Like I know in order to use the WHM's transfer from server to server you need root access on both servers, but I'm asking, if you have a Reseller account, and a VPS/Dedicated server, I know last time I checked the only way to transfer accounts over was by making a Backup file for each account and then transfering it over which can take a while if you are doing a lot of accounts.

Mail() Is Running VERY Slowly On All Of The Linux Packages Of My Reseller Account

Aug 9, 2008

i am at my witts end here. mail() is running VERY slowly on all of the linux packages of my reseller account. Runs fine on windows, but not linux. The odd thing is that it also takes forever for some forms to load too. For mail(), if i switch from my hosting provider's email account in the to section of mail() to my isp or gmail or anything else, it will run fine. What could be the problem here? My host says he checked all the server records and levels and everything is fine, but my scripts can't be the problem either - they have been untouched for years!
