    In create a new account, what does the Reseller check box do exactly? What about the owner checkbox?
    How can I change the defaults of these two checkboxes? Thanks.

    The reseller checkbox makes the account automatically be a reseller account.
    The owner checkbox makes the reseller own his own account, if the reseller is checked.

    What do you mean it automatically makes it a reseller account? is there any purpose to that?

    If I leave the owner checkbox checked, and not the reseller checkbox, does it make a difference? Thanks.

    A reseller account is one where the account owner has there own WHM to create accounts themself. If you plan to make someone a reseller, check that box and it's automatic.

    It used to be necessary to create the account first, then make them a reseller.

    If the reseller box is not checked, it doesn't matter if the owner one is or not.

    Thanks. I personally think this should be documented within cpanel itself.
