The InMotion Store can be accessed at and allows you to buy domains via eNom. As a Reseller eNom subaccounts let you manage domains, there are 2 options when creating subaccounts: Sub-Retail, and Sub-Reseller. Every account is setup as a Sub-Retail account by default; which, is still a reseller. Here are some of the main differences between the accounts types, as per their FAQ page.

You can change it to a Sub-Reseller account, but once it is changed it CANNOT be changed back. If you are still interested, please contact Live Tech Support and request the upgrade.

Distinctions Sub-Retail Sub Reseller
How to Pay
  • Pay for each transaction from the credit card you have setup in the account.
  • Add money to the account, then use these "credits" to pay.
How much Admin Control will you get?
  • You can perform almost any action in a retail sub-account.
  • There are actions you can perform only if you log in to the subaccount directly. You can’t perform actions such as purchases and viewing credit card information if you log in from the parent account.
  • Do not have to keep an account balance with eNom (IMH Store)
  • You are able to use the API which allows our customer's clients to purchase a domain instantly through the customer's site.
  • The prices are lower for a sub-reseller account than for a sub-retail.
  • Have to purchase each domain on behalf of their customer through the imhstore site.
  • The prices are higher for a sub-retail account than for a sub-reseller.
  • Having to keep an account balance on file at eNom.
  • Not being able to change back to Sub-Retail if that is desired. (A New account would have to be created if they wanted to go back to Sub-Retail)

Hello Farha,

While we do not have a reseller demo on our servers, it is very much like the WHM demo that cPanel provides. Reseller accounts do not allow for root access, so they will not have as many functions available as a WHM account with root, but that is the only difference there. Resellers also have access to our IMH store where you can sign up to be a domain reseller for extra income as well.

Kindest Regards,
Scott M
