cPanel MASTER Reseller — what is it?
cPanel is the most advanced and at the same time most popular control panel in the hosting industry (home page here). Like other systems it comes with three administrative levels:
(a) Server Admin
—> (b) Reseller
—> (c) Domain Admin
At L3server we now have software build into cPanel that creates an additional fourth level of administration. With a cPanel Master Reseller control panel you will get a cPanel/WHM reseller account that allows you to create and manage standard multi-domain cPanel/WHM reseller accounts yourself. For your customers we will be invisible; even the DNS is kept anonymous through WHOIS privacy protection.
(a) Server Admin
—> (b) Master Reseller
—> (c) Reseller
—> (d) Domain Admin
cPanel MASTER Reseller — is it an alternative to a VPS or a dedicated server?
Yes and No.
Advantages: You can use all features of the cPanel hosting system without paying any license fees, not to talk about the cost for the server itself, and you can now even create reseller level WHM hosting accounts. You will not have to worry about any sort of server admin tasks. Furthermore, you and all your customers can enjoy using several valuable 3rd party "add-on" programs we have installed for you (all included with your cPanel Master Reseller): Fantastico F3 Script Installer (700+ scripts), Softaculous Pro Script Installer (400+ scripts), and cPanel CP in 30+ languages). Our software will also allow you to easily take backups of your and your customers' hosting accounts and settings (in addition to the backups we take).
Limitations: Same as with standard cPanel/WHM reseller hosting accounts you will not get any root or SSH access.
Server resources are shared among all customers/domains. You may also want to have a look at our comparative table that lists some of the basic features of reseller hosting, VPS, and dedicated server—but note the above mentioned expanded capabilities of the MASTER Reseller.
Alternatives: Please see L3server's VPS servers page and of course our Dedicated Server SPECIALS section.
