    Hi,

    I was looking over at some features in WHM to allow reselling. The feature list seems complicated (not per se...more like the wording used).

    Which options do I have to check/uncheck to keep the server secure, but offer the most features possible? Overselling is allowed, but I don't want the main account to pass it's limit (when all accounts calculated together).

    Is it safe to offer jailshell to resellers, but disallow shell for end-users?

    Thanks in advance

    I never offer shell access exept with a separate account and positive ID and additionall $$ (most people dont know how to use it any way and just muck things up)
    they can just lease a VPS from me and get a real server (sort of) if they want SSH access

    Hmmm...I understand why you'd be hesitant to offer full SSH.

    But what about jailedshell, like WHM gives you the option? Is it relatively safe? IT does make things easier for those who know how to use it. I would make them have to request it obviously.
