    The first step to creating a reseller account is creating a user account. You can only make existing accounts into reseller accounts. You can create a new user account in WHM by going to Account Functions then to Create a New Account.

    Once you have the account you want to escalate to Reseller status, in WHM go to the Resellers section and go to the Reseller Center. In the drop-down box labeled "Add Reseller Privileges" select that user and click the button next to the drop-down box for this to take effect. You will then be brought to a page where you can determine the privileges for this user such as the ability to create accounts and what resources they are allocated for the purposes of reselling.

    AFAIK, you cannot create a reseller who than has the ability to create other resellers.

    The post from cPanel's staff seems to imply otherwise.

    I'd imagine that if you enabled the "Root Access" options for the particular reseller they would be able to create other resellers. I don't recommend doing this for obvious reasons, you open up your entire server to the actions of the reseller.

    cPanelDavidG, what option specifically allows resellers to create other resellers otherwise?

    The only type of reseller that can create other resellers is one with root level privileges. You can have multiple resellers with root level privileges. However, remember that with root level privileges comes the ability to do some dangerous things you may not want your customers doing.
