Definately hard limits. It'll suck if you wake up one day and find a reseller has a customer who pushed 20 gigs while you were away.

I say let the system start emailing reseller who has reach 80% of their allowance. Then allow Server admin to setup a hard limit which allows resellers to go over something like 20% of the package their sign up for. During this time, if reseller dont upgrade their account. Their accounts will get auto suspended.

Also, I would think making the bandwidth monitor more accurate would be a good idea. Since most of resellers' client will probably on IP-less account. If someone decide to abuse FTP access, then it is very hard to bill resellers as WHM doesnt monitor it.

I think hard limits, and emailing usage reports would be the way to go.

I also agree... making the bandwidth monitor Acurate, would be an awsome item. Not just more acurate.. but real usage, including FTP and shell.

i would like it the way where its actual usage........ its the way the most popular reseller host (mc host) does it.. they limit you to 12 gb data transfer, but you can oversell, and create 10 packages that allow 5 gb of transfer, and there is no prob.


any idea when either this, or soft limits will be implemented

Interesting discussion and vital...the reseller program offered by NovaHosting.com sets no limits on bandwidth, i.e., they offer bandwidth on demand with no hard limits. Some would call this &unlimited& with any overage billed to the reseller. This is far preferable to having a resold account go down due to a traffic spike. How exactly does Cpanel handle this?
Thanks

Here is what I feel would be ideal.

Ability to limit resellers to within a certain amount of web space AND limit them to a certain number of accounts.

IE& Say 250 MB and 25 accounts. Thus, if they exceed either, they reach their limit and cannot proceed.

Right now, it is either/or. You can limit their total web space or limit their total number of accounts.
