                What is the purpose of Reseller Only & General reseller in HC Panel?

Solution:
If you have more than one web server in the cluster and want to dedicate machine resources between resellers then you can define such setting in HC Panel.

Server A = For Dedicated Resellers

Server B= For Common or General Resellers

For Example "Server Role = Web Server"

  1. Login in HC panel as host.
  2. Go to menu Panel Configuration :: Manage Servers :: My Servers :: Edit Server and choose Server A, Press Edit Button.
  3. In front of Web Server role you can set "Reseller Only" Purposing to create dedicated reseller.
  4. From same HC panel path you can set Server B as for general purpose which by default we set.  At host level, if you go to Panel Users :: Manage Users :: Add User; HC will show you new option for adding Reseller type.
     Now whenever you will create user/website from dedicated reseller it will automatically create in Server A, same goes with Server B Scenario.

Purposing:
Each server added in the cluster can be used for either only resellers or for both resellers and shared hosting; this needs to be made clear while adding a new server.

    Everyone (Reseller, End User): It refers to the shared hosting. Selecting this option makes server available for shared hosting only.

    Reseller Only: It refers to the dedicated hosting. Selecting this option makes server available for reseller hosting only.

Note: General Resellers will show in GREEN color while Dedicated Resellers in
RED.
