  1. Go to your Control Panel's Groups menu.
  2. On the page that follows, click Create Group button.
  3. On the next page, fill in the user group details: 
    • label - choose a name for the user group

The following parameters affect restrictions sets configuration only:

    • billing plans - assign billing plan(s) which will be available to resellers with the appropriate restrictions set

     5. Click Save.

Create Organization


There are two ways of organization creation:

  • to create a new organization with default billing plan and all roles
