    Hello,

    I am a new reseller and I have created a new account under shared-ip or name-based for my client\'s domain. I know under dedicated-ip or ip-based account is possible. I have a few questions as below:

    1. Is there a way to access Cpanel for my client\'s account before the domain DNS propagates under name-based account?

    2. How can my clients create/delete MySQL databases if it is name-based account before the domain DNS propagates?

    3. Is it possible to create a ip-based account for my clients then after my client\'s domain DNS propagated then switch to name-based? How do I go about using this in reseller WHM if this is possible?

    That\'s all for the time being.

    Thanks in advance :D

    Regards,
    Choon

    Hello,

    For a shared IP account, simply use the main server IP. For example, if your main server IP was 123.123.123.123, then just use http://123.123.123.123:2082 and you\'re in business.

    To answer your third question- it\'s possible if you have root access to the server, but it is WAY too time consuming to be worthwhile.

    choon,

    If you want to hide your webhost IP number,
    you can always ask your client to use:

    http://www.YourResellerDomain.com/cpanel/

    I\'ve told this to all my resellers, and it works!

    Hello anto,

    Thanks and if I am not wrong... that\'s provided my customer\'s domain DNS propagation is completed.

    Thanks.

    Use your domain not your client\'s domain.

    (ie. http://www.YourResellerDomain.com/cpanel/)
