How to Create a Reseller Package (DirectAdmin)

As a reseller, you can create custom packages via your DirectAdmin reseller account for your clients with specific resources assigned to each package.

For example, you can offer basic, essentials or premium packages — basic plans include the least amount of resources such as disk storage, number of email addresses and so on, whilst the premium packages include more resources.

 

Follow these steps to create a package within your DirectAdmin reseller:

 

1. Log in to your DirectAdmin account. Click here for instructions on logging in to your reseller account via DirectAdmin.
