Overview

 

Reseller limits is a feature that allows hosters to set limits for the resources each reseller can operate with. Hoster also provides controls to the reseller on what resources each reseller’s end user will have. Reseller limits set by a hoster limit the total amount of resources resellers’ end users can consume altogether.

 

When a hoster has set reseller limits for the particular reseller he provides the reseller with an ability to set limits for his end users within the Reseller Interface.

 

Note. For now Reseller limits are only supported in cPanel & WHM control panel.

 

Types of Users

 

Starting from the version 3.0-18 LVE Manager operates with four types of users and their resource usage limits.

 

The types of users are as follows:

 

End User is a type of user that purchases hosting directly from a hoster and uses it for his own purposes;

Reseller is a type of user that buys hosting from a hoster and resells it to his end users;

Reseller’s End User is a type of user that purchases hosting from a reseller and uses it for his own purposes.

Reseller’s End User (no Reseller limit) is a type of user that purchases hosting from a reseller and uses it for his own purposes but does not have limits set by a reseller. These limits are set by the hoster.

What happens when reseller or reseller's end user hits the limit?

 

Please note that Reseller is a virtual entity. So, he cannot hit the limit. There is reseller's end user with the same name as reseller. This end user is limited as any other reseller's end user. When hoster sets Reseller limits he limits the group of resellers' end users including reseller's end user with the same name as the reseller.

 

Reseller's end user can hit reseller limit when end user's limit is bigger than reseller's limit. In such case end user will be limited by reseller limit.

Reseller limit can be hit when all resellers’ end users in total use as much resources as reseller limit.

Reseller's end user can hit his limit when end user limit is lower than reseller limit. In such case end user will be limited by his limit.
