Thread: Purchasing WHM

  1. #1

    Purchasing WHM

    I found a very cheap shared plan host, but I would like to turn this into a reseller. Can I just use their hosting and purchase WHM and install it into the cpanel or can only my host do that? I'm thinking only my host but I want to make sure.

    If they have cPanel then they have WHM. It is not something that can be installed like a script, it is basically a peice of software, they just need to give you access to it, you cannot get it yourself.

    cPanel/WHM pretty much takes over the server and therefore cannot be installed in a shared hosting enviromet. In fact, they're reccomended method of uninstalling WHM is to reinstall the operating system.

    If they allow it, they can just switch it on for you. You'll then have access to it via another port (just like CPanel's control panel).

    Yes, normally, your host can just tick an option, and set your rights, and there you go your a reseller !

    But if your host is a reseller himself, no you can't
