    Hello!

    I am wondering if there are any good ways of changing ownership of cPanel accounts in WHM to multiple reseller accounts.

    The reason I want to do this is because I want to be able to control the users in our environment by not having them be root users (as that is the only way I have got it to work so far). This is because of security reasons.

    Or, if there are any other workarounds, feel free to mention them.

    To clarify, we want our reseller users to be able to see every cPanel account in WHM.

    Hello,

    There's no supported way of assigning multiple owners to a single account at this time. I encourage you to vote and add feedback to the following feature request, as it looks to match the functionality you are seeking:

    multiple named accounts per reseller

    Thank you.

    Hello, and thanks for the information!
    Unfortunately I think I do not have the required experience to be working with backend API right now. (I have no experience in that at all, I am new to WHM, cPanel, Wordpress, web management in general actually)

    I think my solution will be to make a shared reseller account for the users I do not wish to give root access to, and then put all cPanel accounts ownership to that shared reseller account.
    It would have been best to have separate accounts for them, but I think this solution works pretty well too. (main problem is they should just not have root access!)
