    My honest opinion is I did not care for that script at all...but others I have talked to liked the script....I also think that letting resellers sale reseller plans is just asking for problems

    Maybe someone else can provide some more feedback on this:)

    I found some major flaws with that script and ended up having them recode a large portion of it. It took them more than a month to report that they have fixed problems regarding IP delegation when the master reseller has been restricted to certain IP's. I have not tested the updates as of yet tho...

    Using a script such as that is really asking for a disaster to happen for your servers.

    It is difficult enough to manage 1 tier of resellers and make sure they don't allow "unwanted" sites on the servers.

    Can you imagine having two tiers of resellers? What is to stop the reseller from creating a reseller account, who then allows spammers and phishers to be hosted?

    In theory, the ability for resellers to create their own reseller accounts is a great idea, but in reality.. it will probably always lead to unstable servers unless you closely monitor your server. (ie: It is not cost effective.)

    I have to agree with electric ...

    If you really want to offer something like that (???), place your reseller on a VPS or better yet, force them to buy a ded server from you. Then they can be in total control and responsible for their own mess.
