Creating and Managing a Reseller Plan in Plesk

Inside a Plesk control panel you have the ability to setup reseller packages that limit the resources your customers can use by creating what Plesk calls a Service Plan. Typically the service plan includes disk space on the server, bandwidth, web hosting, and email service limits.  Creating Service plans inside Plesk allows the server owner to create Reseller Plans that limit what the resellers can do and the resources they are able to use on the server.

  1. Inside your Plesk server click on the menu titled “Service Plans”.setting up a reseller account 1

  5. Scroll down and review the Overuse Policy section. This section defines what happens if the reseller accounts usage of disk space and/or bandwidth reaches a specified limit. In this section you have the ability to Disallow overuse which will block any overuse from inside the account. If the resellers account is set to block overuse and it goes over its allowed limit, the account will be suspended and no more resources allocated to it. You have the ability to choose to allow overuse inside the reseller account. If you decide to allow overuse, you have the option of sending an e-mail whenever a limit is reached, based off the server’s notification settings.reseller account 5

By default overselling is allowed, which means the reseller can sell more resources than what’s been allocated to their specific plan. The reseller is governed by the actual resources used instead of the resources allocated to it.reseller account 6
