I have a cpanel dedicated server... you know how when you are logged into the server as root in WHM... if you click on "create a new account"... on the "create a new account" page at the very bottom there are two seperate settings which you can choose to checkmark:
The first one is called "reseller".
The second one is called "owner (only if reseller)".
By default the second setting has a checkmark next to it. What does that mean? I do NOT have any resellers on my server. I only host regular accounts. Therefore shouldn't I leave BOTH of those settings un-checked?
These two options "reseller" and "owner (only if reseller)" are only applicable if you are creating a reseller account.
You can create a reseller account by checking the first option.
By checking the second option, you can give the ownership of the account to that reseller itself.
So the second option is applicable only if the first option is checked(thats is if the account created is a reseller account). You needn't worry about this option when you are creating regular accounts...

It's checked by default because in most cases when the first one is checked, you usually want the second checked too. If the first one is not checked, the second one makes no difference one way or the other.
Reseller account's space / bandwidth will count against his resource limits with the ownership being - themselves. Without that, you could give your resellers some specific resources on top of their resold ammount.
