Account Creation

Reseller accounts in DirectAdmin provide users with the ability to create additional users, domains and custom web hosting plans that are under their own ownership. This is perfect for anyone who wants to maintain their own list of websites/domains!


Evolution Theme

From the main Reseller panel, head to the Account Manager section and click Add New User.

From the main Reseller panel, head to the Account Management section and click Add New User.



Each item of the Add New User form will be discussed in detail below:



The username can be up to 14 characters long and can contain only letters or numbers. Please enter the username all in lower-case letters. The username is what your customer will use to sign into their control panel and to access their main FTP account.



The password needs to be a minimum of six characters, and should include a variety of letters (both lower- and upper-case) and numbers. Shift characters, such as !@#$, etc are also allowed.



This is the customer's domain name. You do not need to enter the "http://" or the "www." All domain extensions are supported: .com,, .ca,, etc.


User Package

A package is a combination of features (packages are also referred to as hosting plans). Before creating a hosting account, you must create at least one package first.

Please refer to the Setup (User) Account Packages article for additional information.



This is the IP address that the customer's site will be hosted on. You may select any IP address from the dropdown list.

If your Reseller account was created with the ability to use the server's main IP address, you will see the option "IP - Shared - Server."

If you have several IP addresses assigned to you, you may select a free IP address for your customer. Please note that the IP address won't be in the list next time, as it is now owned by that customer. You can, however, make the IP address "shared" by accessing the "IP Assignment" feature from the main Reseller menu.


Send Mail Notification

Check this box to automatically send the customer their account details by e-mail. You can click the "Edit User Message" link to customize the e-mail content.



To change the "From:" address of these welcome messages, switch to your User panel and go to the "Statistics" menu. Then, enter the appropriate e-mail address in the "E-mail" field.

After making changes, click the "Save." button. You may restore the message back to its original content by clicking the "Reset to Default" button.



The Customize button allows you to edit package features for this customer only. Click the button only after you have entered all the customer's details in the above fields. When you are finished, click the "Submit" button.


Account Creation

After you click "Submit" you should see a screen that looks like this:


You may enter comments about your customer in the textbox or leave it blank. Clicking "Save Comments" will bring you to the customer's account screen. You may also move to another part of the control panel or exit the control panel if you wish. Clicking "Save Comments" is not required to complete account creation.
