Name and Description 

Specify the name and description of hosting plan and set its availability (visibility) to customers.

Price

Specify pricing options for this hosting plan. These pricing settings are for information purposes only (if you use 3rd-party billing solutions like ModernBill or AWBS). These prices will not be used in DNP E-commerce module.

Plan Target

Plan target is the place where corresponding hosting space will be created. When editing hosting plan under reseller account a hosting space only can be selected as a target.

Quotas

Enabled required resource groups and specify their allowed quotas.

Check resource groups for which disk space and bandwidth should be calculated.

Some resources may be disabled if corresponding service does not exist in the selected target server or hosting space. For example if "System" resource is disabled that means you don't have "OS" service in the target server or "System" resource enabled in the parent hosting space.

System Resource

Tick "System" resource if you want to allow created hosting spaces work with files.

Please note, some other resources like WEB or FTP are dependent on "System" resource, so if it's not enabled you will not be able to create web sites or FTP accounts in the created hosting space under this hosting plan.

Specify allowed "disk space" and "bandwidth/month" quotas.

Sometimes it's undesirable to allow customers accessing files within the space. This case you can disable "File Manager" option and it will be hidden from their spaces.
