    Is there a way for us to create a new user so we don't have to give out our original password for logging into cpanel?

    At this time, there is no way to have 2 cPanel accounts for the same website. Sub-users for the cPanel interface is functionality that is not available at this time.

    However, you could have 1 reseller and 1 cPanel account access the same website via the cPanel interface.

    Thansk Dave. Can you shed more light on how to set up the 2nd reseller account to access the same cpanel interface for 1 domain. Also, can we add this to the future roll list. I think this is powerful functionality for all cpanel users!

    Well, you would use 1 reseller account and 1 regular cPanel account as I mentioned, not 2 reseller accounts.

    The regular cPanel account can stay as-is. You can then create a second cPanel account for a non-existent domain (e.g. user2.example.com). Then go to the reseller center and make them a reseller, granting them privileges as needed (not many privileges should be needed for this specific scenario). Next, in the Reseller Center, click change the ownership of an account. You can then assign the cPanel account to be owned by that reseller account. This will allow the reseller to login to that cPanel account using that cPanel username and their reseller password.

    The only significant issue is the reseller will be unable to use cPanel's database functionality, only the cPanel user logged in using their cPanel password can manage the databases.
