I've just added my first hostee to my website. Right now I am setting up their FTP account in cPanel. My website has unlimited space and unmetered bandwith(prolinkhosting.com). I would like my hostees to only have 100 MB of space. Is the quota field where I set up the amount of space they have?

There are two ways to achieve this:

1) Create a predefined package with a quota of 100MB (WHM -> Packages -> Add Packages) to be applied to new accounts that are setup.

2) In the accounts list (WHM -> Account Information -> List Accounts) there's a column entitled 'Quota' where you can modify quotas on a per-user basis.

WHM would be the interface you're using to setup accounts. It provides (more or less) global access to the server, whereas the cPanel interface is merely a subset of this providing your accounts with much more restricted access to things.

WHM is: http://yoursite.com:2086

whereas cPanel is: http://yoursite.com:2082

You will notice a significant difference between the two.
