When creating an account you have the option of making the account a reseller or not. I need to know what happens or changes are present to the user when they have a reseller account as to not having a reseller account. Are there physical changes in the control panel? More or different icons available to select? Do you know which ones they are?

Thanks

If the account is created as a reseller, then that account would also have access to WHM in order to create and manage their own cPanel accounts. Exactly which privileges they have and how many accounts they can create would depend on what you assign the reseller via WHM -> Edit Reseller Nameservers and Privileges.

Thanks. This has helped. By default no options were available so I was confused as to why WHM was even needed for the reseller. Now that I see the privs edit page, it starts to make more sense.

Thanks
