How to enable or disable Overselling in WHM

Posted at May 2, 2017 at 11:53 am by Jithin

In this tutorial, we can learn more about overselling in WHM. Overselling means that the system limits the reseller via the resources that their cPanel accounts actually use instead of the resources that you been allocated. WHM’s Edit Reseller Nameservers and Privileges interface allows for a resource limit to be set. You can specify a maximum bandwidth and allocate disk space that a reseller can allocate to a cPanel account. You can enable or disable overselling capacity for a reseller.

6) If you want to enable overselling select the option ‘Overselling Allowed’.

If you set limits for a reseller’s resources and enable the overselling option, it means you provide the resellers with the ability to create accounts using resources that can exceed your pre-set allocated maximum amount. The amount of disk space or bandwidth that the accounts use does not affect the reseller’s ability to make new accounts.

 

7) If you want to disable overselling untick the option “Overselling Allowed”.

If you set limits for a reseller’s resources and disable the overselling option, it means you provide the resellers with the ability to create accounts until they have reached the maximum allocation of resources you have provided them with. If the reseller reaches this maximum amount, it disables the new account creation option.

 

8) After making all the needed changes, click on the button ‘Save All Changes’.
