WARNING: This documentation covers Parallels H-Sphere versions up to 3.1. For the latest up-to-date Parallels H-Sphere documentation, please proceed to the official Parallels site.

This document explains how to configure your control panel so user homes under one reseller are created on a separate physical server:

Step 1: Go to E.Manager -> Servers -> Server Groups and create new server groups for each type that will be created on this reseller's box:

Usually, this would be a web server, sometimes a MySQL, PostgreSQL, or RealMedia server. Make sure not to create separate DNS server groups. When added, server groups will show up in the numbered list.

Step 2: Go to E.Manager -> Servers -> P.Servers. Click the target physical server. At the bottom of the page that appears, select a group you have created to add to this physical server:

and click the Submit button. The name of the group will appear in the Group field. Repeat this procedure for each of the new server groups.

Step 3: Go to E.Manager -> Servers -> L.Servers and click Add Logical Server. Fill out the form that appears to add a logical server to a new server group:

More on logical servers

Step 4: On the Logical Server settings page, add the IPs that you want to use for accounts registered on this logical server.

Step 5: In the upper part of the same Logical Server settings page, turn on Available for signup.

Step 6: Repeat steps 3, 4 and 5 to add one logical server to each new server group.

Step 7: If the reseller plan hasn't been created yet, launch the Reseller Plan Wizard. Otherwise, launch the Plan Editor. In the Allow server groups section, check the server groups you would like the reseller to use:

Mind, these settings will not affect existing end user accounts. Only new accounts will be created on the designated server.

Step 8: If the reseller account hasn't been created yet, go to Plans -> Manage and enable signup for this plan. Then go to Signup and create the reseller account.

Step 9: Go to Plans -> Manage and turn this reseller plan OFF for other signups.
