    Hi,

    I will be placing 1500 domains on a server.

    The server will be hosting ONLY these domains, and all domains are owned by one person, so there are 2 options : they can all be added as Addon Domains within 1 cPanel account, or they can all have separate accounts for each domain. Either option is acceptable.

    My question : will the choice of Addon or separate accounts make a difference to the server's resources? In other words, will creating a separate cPanel account for each domain cause a higher CPU/memory load? Is it better to create them all as Addon domains within a single cPanel account? Or does it make no difference to the server resource usage?

    Your knowledgable advice is highly appreciated :)

    Regards,
    Leo

    Go on, have a guess
    It won't make any difference, the resource usage would be the same as in either case it will create the same virtualhost containers for apache and the difference in disk space would probably be negligable.

    Whether to have one big account or multiple separate accounts depends largely on how the client (or you) want to use the domains. If they need to be discrete or you want to allow multiple users access to cPanel then using separate accounts would seem better. If it's one person looking after all the domains then it would seem more sensible to have one account so that they don't have to remember which account to login to for each domain and to maintain all the cPanel account passwords.
