Overview

This feature allows you to assign a package to a new account. A package defines the account's limitations. For example, a package determines how much disk space the new account can use or how much data the new account can transfer.

Important:

If root users do not grant resellers the Account Modification (edit-account) privilege, then the reseller must specify a package when they create a new account. The root user can assign this privilege to resellers in WHM's Edit Reseller Nameservers and Privileges interface (WHM >> Home >> Resellers >> Edit Reseller Nameservers and Privileges).

Note:

Some hosting providers use the term "domain templates" to describe this concept.

Package

Use the Choose a Package menu to assign an existing package. If you are unsure of the limitations that a package will assign, hold your cursor over the  icon to view the package’s configuration.
