Simple Reseller Questions

Recommended Posts

I'm still digging through old posts trying to learn about reseller accounts @ TCH. Some posts look to be outdated, so I still have a few questions. If I want to start a reseller account to mainly host all of my domains, for now, I need to pick one domain for the reseller domain, correct? And that particular domain has separate, but equal storage & bandwidth as the other shared domains that will be under that account?

 

Ex. Simple Reseller:

 

>-----------------------------------------

Main Reseller Domain - 10GB/200GB

-------
                                           ---->  $19.99
Domain 2
Domain 3    - 10GB/200GB
Domain 4

-------

------------------------------------------

 

Am I reading that right or has that changed?

 

<>

 

If I want to change that main reseller domain on the account in the future, that is possible?

 

I'm reading those other domains are connected to the main domain, but on simple reseller account you will be using TCH chosen DNS. So I'm trying to figure how they will be "connected" other than by maybe IP address?? I don't guess that bothers me too much anyhow.

 

DW & I have domains through TCH on two different domain accounts, but we'd like to host them through the same reseller account. I think our hosting is through one account? (Just get one invoice/month). We also recently tried to let a friend host two of our domains :) , so we'd like to move those back to TCH ASAP. Don't know how that would work....Guess just change the DNS for those sites? I'm not worried about transferring files with those sites as they are so new.

 

Just one last question. The plans lists says virtual hosting offers SSL and reseller plans don't. Any reason for that or is there a workaround just in case it is needed in the future?

The main reseller account will have the separate resource limit as the reseller plan, or in on other words you'll get double resource limits for your entire reseller plan against the announced resource limit.

Yes, it is possible to change the domain name of the main reseller account by posting a ticket to our help desk

On a simple reseller account, the main domain and any other domains hosting on the reseller plan will have to set the same name servers assigned to the main domain.

You only need to pay for the main reseller account, as hosting fee. If you would like to move any stand alone accounts to your reseller account, just submit a ticket to the help desk - so that we can move them to your reseller account and can cancel the separate billing of the moved account.

 

We also recently tried to let a friend host two of our domains :) , so we'd like to move those back to TCH ASAP. Don't know how that would work....Guess just change the DNS for those sites? I'm not worried about transferring files with those sites as they are so new.

 

You'll need to create a hosting account for these domains under your reseller account and switch the name servers as same as of the main domain, so that those domains will work fine from your reseller account. If they are currently hosted on a cPanel based server, we can transfer the hosting accounts and then, you can switch the name servers. If you would like to transfer the accounts, just submit a ticket to the help desk with the current cPanel user/password of those accounts.

 

Just one last question. The plans lists says virtual hosting offers SSL and reseller plans don't. Any reason for that or is there a workaround just in case it is needed in the future?

 

I am sorry for the confusion - but free shared SSL is available for virtual hosting plans and reseller plans, that includes any accounts under reseller plan too.

 

Let us know if I missed any questions.
