Web Hosting Security

Shared and Reseller Shared Comparison

Shared account:

  • One control panel – cPanel – for your primary domain and all your add-on domains

Reseller account:

  • Primary domain receives a WHM (web host manager) control panel as well as a cPanel
  • Each account created through WHM gets it’s own cPanel which can have a different user name and password

Shared account:

  • If a hacker (or malware) gains access toyour cPanel user name and password on a Shared account, they now have access to ALL YOUR DOMAINS!

Reseller account:

  • If a hacker (or malware) gains access to your WHM user name and password on a Reseller account they now have access to ALL WHM ACCOUNTS!
  • If a hacker (or malware) gains access to your cPanel user name and password on a Reseller account, they only have access to that SINGLE DOMAIN!

Security Best Practice:

  • A Reseller account, even if you only use it for your own domains, can be more secure IF you put each of your domains in a separate account, each with a unique cPanel user name and access.
  • Create a one-off user name and password for your primary Reseller/WHM account.
  • Create a one-off user name and password for each cPanel domain.
