I'm selling Reseller hosting and I would like to set the same rules as VPS is setting to me :)

I'm selling Reseller plan with disk space 100 GB for example
I would like to allow him to sell hosting plans to his customers with any disk space he wish (50 GB, 100 GB, 200 GB, Unlimited, etc..)
But the most important rule is the total disk space usages for all of his customers should not exceed his Reseller plan of 100 GB.

I tried to limit that as you can see at the attached screenshot, but I found that he could create a package with a disk space (eg. 1TB) greater than his Reseller plan (100GB) and his user could use this package and use the (1TB) disk space.

Hello,

Can you show the user, utilizing that disk space? While your reseller with this configuration should be able to create packages with those amounts, the user should not actually be able to utilize more than the reseller's allotted disk space.

Yea i know i can do that.
But I want to allow him to create any disk space he wish but only use the real disk space.
Example: I want to allow him to create 100GB for his customers but don’t actually use more than 20GB (as he purchased the Reseller plan from me)

Same as VPS, I can create packages with unlimited space but my customers can’t use more than my VPS actual disk space!

Allow overselling should allow you to do that. The thread here explains fairly well: Can Someone Explain Reseller Overselling?
I know and tested how overselling options works with limiting his account.
it allow my Reseller customer to sell to his customers any disk space he wish and once his customers usages reaches the limits I set to him, he can't create any more hosting accounts.
But the main issue that his current customers could still use more & more disk space because their fake package limit isn't triggered yet.
I need to solve this big issue by suspending all his accounts!
