    Here's my scenario;
    Running Freebsd 7.1
    WHM and cpanel
    Dedicated server

    I have a "Main Domain" where I have forums and the support site

    i.e. maindomain.com

    I have given reseller access to maindomain.com
    I want to have/sell separate users subdomains off of the main domain;
    (using same ssl cert of the main domain if possible)
    same ip also if possible
    i.e.
    maindomain.com -> mainuser
    store1.maindomain.com ->subuser1
    store2.maindomain.com ->subuser2
    store3.maindomain.com ->subuser3

    I would like then to be able to have separate accounts logins to the subdomain directories for each user so they can upload and compile their store software but not "play" with each others subdomain or stores not be able to "play" with the main domain.

    Cpanel access for each subdomain would be nice but is not something I require at this time. Been searching and scratching my head over this one for a while. Any suggestions? pointers? General direction to start looking?

    Thanks in advance :)

    If I'm understanding you correctly, just create a new account 'subdomain.whatever.com' using either root or reseller WHM access. That'll give you a new cPanel account for the subdomain that will be completely separate.

    Each subdomain you create for this purpose would need it's own IP (and cert) as well I would think.

    You will need a separate IP/cert for each if you're using SSL. I don't know if wildcard certs will work in this case, I've never tried.
