The 2nd, Sentora system can create the reseller hosting for sell ( i never think that before). So everything I need just read the knowledge at sentora.org. and you too, but I just place a serial post to this system coz I think in the future I will use this system so many times and I don’t want to waste time to find something I did. And that the reason I write this post.
