    ok i am very new to whm and dedicated servers.... we all must start somewhere

    i am not sure how whm distributes space... ok, say i make a 3000mb account and make it a reseller, and the person whos reseller it is makes and account on it, does the space that the new account uses come from that resellers 3000mb or the rest of the server? -i wasnt sure if there was a thread on this but i couldnt find it- thanks

    It comes from his account. If you do not permit overselling (swictch when setting up reseller) then he could create one 3000 mb account, 2 1500 mb accounts, 4 750 mb accounts, 10 300 mb accounts, 100 30 mb accounts and so on.. depending on what packages are available to him or what packages he creates.

    The number od accounts he creates is not dependent on the actual storage but on the assigned storage.

    Create a fictitious reseller using a spare domain and look at what you can set. Set what you think makes sense.

    Then come in as that reseller and try to do what you expect that reseller will likely need to do.

    I've learned more from such trial and error than from any documentation.

    Just delete the accounts when you are done.
