    We currently have overselling ticked but not sure if it's 100% correct.

    Can someone confirm as I would like to confirm this is correct.

    The reason I ask is in WHMCS we have it setup the reseller account with a quota of 1GB but the reseller quota is 10GB for eg. Is this correct?

    If a client however changes the quota of the account set to the reseller plan in WHM to the max 10GB then he cannot create any more accounts.

    I would've thought it would allow this not matter the quotas but only work on diskspace used?

    Hello :)

    If overselling is allowed and you allocate 500 MB of disk space to the reseller, he may still set up disk quotas of 300 MB each for 2 users. Combined, they will be able to use 600 MB; however, when their combined disk space usage exceeds 500 MB, the reseller will no longer be able to add new accounts.

    Thank you.
