Well you are probably reffering to whmreseller hosts. well there are quite a few out there, but sometimes that software is quite buggy and causes a lot of problems.

Yeah, these are otherwise known as cPanel Master Resellers. Have a search on ebay, loads of 'em But be warned, it is very buggy.

Sometimes, it is a pain to search reviews to shop for new host. However, i suggest browse the forum around to do some homework on your own.

Ahh, become a reseller of a reseller of a reseller. Imagine the channels that poor END user will have to go to for support. Not recommended.

Think of all the cPanel accounts on one server

If you are suggesting it is impossible to set this up without causing any glitches you are very wrong. What is so terrible about a company selling the ability for their clients to give reseller privileges to their clients? Is it just to confusing? What makes you think there would be anymore accounts on the server?

I think he is saying that running whmreseller is quite tricky cuz of bugs. And you should read some reviews here if you are not convinced about that.

I see what you are saying. The WHMReseller software is buggy, that might be true (I do not have first hand experience with it).

Posted by Adam H, 06-07-2007, 01:56 PM
Because you have resellers making resellers making accounts. its like having multiple dedicated servers worth of accounts on one server.

If you do not oversell the services in the first place, how would you be overloading the server? If you limit the disk space for all accounts under the main one, it does not get out of hand.

Posted by Adam H, 06-07-2007, 02:06 PM
Limiting the disk space will not do much if. If you have several big forums using all the CPU. I see you sell master resellers. Do you reserve the right to terminate end user CPU abusers

Yes it does. The amount of Virtual Hosts that Apache will need to read will be quite high, causing issues. I would say the first two services to be impacted would be Apache and MySQL. No way can those sites handle even 1000 1MB sites. Overselling isn't only possible on the hard disk and bandwidth levels.

Posted by HostSentry, 06-07-2007, 02:15 PM
I don't believe I can answer that on account of the forum rules... Do you believe putting 1000 1MB sites on a server would be realistic in the first place? What makes you think a company is hosting 1000 actively visited 1MB sites in the first place? You are basically assuming that just because a company offers reseller privileges to their client's clients, that it translates to millions of accounts. Not all people would use the feature, and they would certainly not use it on all of their accounts. What percentage of shared hosting accounts do you think are reseller?

Posted by cabron, 06-07-2007, 02:15 PM
Indeed. If they are also allowed to oversell on single master reseller account might bring down the server, even if there aren't any big individual consumers. Usually hosts that offer master resellers also have slower servers.

That is interesting speculation, but that is all it is.

Hi there everyone. I'm the developer of WHMreseller and I've just spent the last 2 weeks coding like crazy to improve WHMreseller even more. The number of bugs now must be very close to zero as its been in the marketplace now a long time and we've got a lot of feedback from users. So far - as far as we know we've removed all known bugs in our latest release - version 2.6 - being release today. So you'd be pretty hard pressed finding a bug now I would think, but of course if you do - let us know and we'll squash it fast.

If you don't mind me asking. How many licenses have you guys sold?

Posted by mehboobashraf, 06-07-2007, 10:52 PM
Thank You all for all the informations. I didnot know about the WHTreseller thing.

Posted by bjdea1, 06-09-2007, 09:08 PM
All I can say is we have many hosting companies using our software, including a server company (Beachcomber).
