DSmanager reseller is a control panel account that may create dedicated server owner accounts, add new dedicated servers and assign them to his users. A reseller can reboot and reinstall an operating system on any of his dedicated servers, and monitor traffic statistics. This module can be used for reseller accounts management: you can create a new account, edit parameters of an existing reseller, delete, disable or enable him, change the maximum number of dedicated servers that a reseller can create, and access a control panel of any of your resellers with his access privileges.
