    Automated Backups

    Is there a way to automate daily backups for a reseller account? I've looked around and a lot of hosting companies list this as a benefit of their hosting. I'm just wondering how this is accomplished, through software i.e. Cpanel/WHM or is this done by the server manager the top level company running the server.

    What you are referring to is a feature only available to users with root privileges.
    Most reseller accounts do not include root privileges.

    You can, however, perform automatic cron job backups on each account.

    Yes it is a functionality that requires root access but you can automate using some cpanel API programming combined with cronjob
