Users are not part of any hierarchy. The hierarchy in ispconfig is:

admin > reseller > client

users are only the holder of the login name and password of a admin, reseller or client.

If you need resellers or not depends on your business model.

Okay, but, what is the difference between reseller and client?

till 3rd September 2009 22:51

A reseller has clients. This is so with any controlpanel or similar software.

Okay, but can't clients have clients too? And can resellers create websites/emails etc. directly under themselves?

A client which has clients is a reseller.

yes.

Why did you just not tried it, would be much faster then asking here ;)

But then i dont see the difference :P So the only difference between a reseller and a client, is which table they stick in?

Wikipedia, Reseller:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reseller

"Another common example on the is in the web hosting area, where a reseller will purchase bulk hosting from a supplier with the intention of reselling it to a number of consumers at a profit."

I know what a reseller is, but in technical perspective, ISPConfig doesn't difference between client and reseller?

till 3rd September 2009 23:54

In technical perspective its exactly what wikipedia describes.

A reseller is a client with the ability to have subclients. Without that ability, he wont be able to resell anything ergo he wont be a reseller then.

Why dont you just try it out?
