Which is the best way to add my clients to
Web Hosting Hub -

Add them to my own account.
Open a reseller account.
Use the affiliate programme and build their sites with their own cPanel.

The first option is my preferred choice, would there be any potential problems with this?

Hello billm46,

Thank you for question. If you want customers to eventually take over control of their own websites, I recommend using the affiliate program and having them sign up for their own cPanel/hosting accounts.

This way if their website causes problems, it won't affect your account.

If you are going to be maintaining their websites for them indefinitely, then adding them to your cPanel would work.

Unfortunately, we do not offer reseller accounts.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below, or contact live Tech Support.

So if one wishes to, they could use their shared hosting account to host a client website?

Hello shane01,

Sure, since there is no limit to how many websites you can add to your cPanel, but a shared/budget plan is not the same as a reseller plan.

A reseller plan actually allows you to create separate cpanel accounts, for your clients.

The main risks with adding a client to your account is, if they want to access something such as FTP, you can create an ftp account for them, but it will include your domain name.

For example:

Also, if you add a client site and it is very resource intensive, it can cause your entire account to get suspended. The resource usage tool in cPanel, can help you determine how much CPU you are using.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,
