    Can someone direct me as to how to setup a Reseller?

    Then - how to setup packages that the Reseller can use - to sell to others?

    To setup reseller accounts you need to have root access to the server / VPS.
    Login to the Servers WHM, yourdomain.com/whm uing the root login.
    You must add a new account under the 'account functions' - create a new account, with the paramaters for their resellers account.
    The go to the 'reseller center'
    Select the account you want to makie into reseller from add reseller privileges.
    To change privileges click on 'Edit Privileges/Nameservers'.
    Its normally easier to let the reseller setup their own packages when they login to WHM

    Reseller Packages

    Thank you so much - that helped a lot.

    The last issue is this...

    1. The reseller sells our packages to his clients - yet the clients do not know we exisist.

    2. We create "resold" packages that only the reseller can see and assign pricing - example a package my cost him $5 but he charges $10 to his clients.

    3. When someone goes to the reseller's site - buys that package - WE charge the reseller the $5 and it is up to him to collect his money from the client - again the client never knows we are alive.

    We are currently an Alabanza web host - we are getting everthing setup to move from them - and this is a critical aspect for our resellers right now.

    Thank you for your help - anyone have some ideas?
