    I have a problem that i cant decied how to do.

    I have a server that i own with ispConfig 3.
    My company are working with both running webstores and also selling stores and webspace.

    I have setuped 2 stores with one account direct from admin and created a client.

    How should i do for the customers that we sell space to?
    Should i create a reseller and create clients under the reseller for them, or should i always work as admin and just create new clients under admin.

    I think maybe like this:

    Admin -> Clients (my own stores)
    Admin -> Reseller (my own hosting company)
    My own hosting company -> Clients (the clients we sell space too.)

    What do you think is the best solutions?

    A reseller is not required for your own clients. Normally you will create a reseller only if a third party company will resell your services.

    Thanks for your super fast answar.
    Ok, now i understand better. But maybe it can be good to make my own hosting comapny as a reseller so i can split my "own" clients to my payment clients.
    Or will this be bad?

    Own more question. My server has domain, what will be the best for setup a site for this domain? Create a new client with that domain?

    There is no drawback in using a reseller for your own clients, so you can do that. Its more a personal preference on how you like to organise your company.

    If the server hostname of the server is, then you should change it to a subdomain like, otherwise you will get ptoblems with apache and email receivibg for domain

    You can create this site directly as admin, you dont need a client for that. sites created as admin have the linux group "client0" while sites created as client have client1, client2, etc. So there is not much difference.
