    How do web hosts offer unlimited hosting for resellers on cpanel? Reason I ask is this basically allowed 1 or 2 resellers which are on the same server to overwhelm the server with 1000s of websites if they want to?

    Is limiting resellers by accounts/domains not the best approach or is there a way to properly offer unlimited domains?

    The term "unlimited" is to be used judiciously. It is common to restrict an "unlimited" plan with a bunch of terms and conditions (usually written in tiny letters and at the bottom of the page, not very visible ;) ). However, in a sense such terms and conditions are inevitable.

    In a broad sense, when your host says that you can have unlimited domains, you may need to believe it. If the hosted websites are not bringing heavy traffic to the server and they do not use much resources, then there isn't much point in worrying about offering unlimited domains.

    Hello :)

    There is also a good document on understanding reseller accounts at:

    Resellers Introduction

    This will give you an idea of how reseller accounts can be configured to allow for unlimited domain names, while restricting the disk space and bandwidth usage.

    Thank you.
