Hi,

I was on a web host previously and owned a Master Reseller. I had a certain amount of Disk space and Bandwidth and couldn't create web hosting accounts that had more than what I paid for (disk space & bandwidth). I was given an error message.

Now, I own a VPS with cPanel/WHM installed & licensed. The only problem is, people are able to create packages/plans for hosting with unlimited space/bandwidth.

How can I limit people to how much space/bandwidth they can create accounts with?

Thanks.

Hello :)

You can adjust the resource usage limits for the reseller via:

"WHM >> Resellers >> Edit reseller privileges & nameservers"

Ensure that "Limit accounts that username can create by Resource Usage." is enabled, and that "Overselling Allowed" is not enabled. A full document on this page can be found at:

Edit Privileges/Nameservers

Thank you.

Thank you.
That looks to be per reseller account though, I'm not going to individually set the permission for each account, that will just become a pain in the back side. Is it possible to make this change global and apply to all new accounts created?
