Client Templates Management
Client template is a predefined set of restrictions and permissions that may be applied to a client account. The purpose of client templates is to simplify creation of client accounts with automatic settings assignment to them. For instance, you can create a client template that will allocate a shared IP address, so that you would not have to manually add the IP address to a client's IP pool each time a new client account is created.
The following parameters can be defined in a client template:
- Template name
- Ability to create domains
- Ability to manage physical hosting
- Ability to manage hard disk quota
- Ability to manage subdomains
- Ability to change domain limits
- Ability to manage DNS zone
- Ability to manage log rotation
- Ability to manage scheduler
- Ability to manage anonymous FTP
- Ability to manage Tomcat web application
- Ability to manage system access
- Ability to manage mailing lists
- Maximum number of domains and subdomains a client can create
- Maximum disk space amount
- Maximum amount of traffic allowed
- Maximum number of web users
- Maximum number of databases
- Maximum number of mailboxes
- Mailbox quota
- Maximum number of mail redirects
- Maximum number of mail groups
- Maximum number of mail autoresponders
- Maximum number of mailing lists
- Maximum number of Tomcat web applications
- Client account validity period
- IP addresses allocation
- Number of lines to be displayed in a client's interface
Creating a client template
To add a new client template, follow these steps:
On the Server administration page click the Client Templates button. The Client templates management page appears.
Click the Add button, the Template creation and editing page appears.
Enter the name for the client template in the Template name field. In the Permissions section, check the appropriate checkboxes to grant all necessary permissions to the client. In the Limits section specify the limits to be applied: uncheck the "Unlimited" checkboxes and type in the values for the parameters. To limit client account validity period, uncheck the corresponding "Unlimited" checkbox, select the time unit in the drop-down list (it can be Years, Months, Days) and type in the value.
Select shared ip addresses from the list to be used for the client's hosting accounts, add new ip addresses to the list clicking on the Add button, and remove them by selecting an ip address and clicking Remove.
Check the Allocate exclusive ip addresses to the client checkbox to ensure that the client is provided with exclusive ip addresses. Specify the maximum number of exclusive ip addresses to be allocated.
Enter the number of lines to be displayed on a page.
Click Update to submit settings, or click Up to discard unsaved settings and return to the Client templates management page.
The template will be added to the list of client templates and become available as option when creating a new client account.
Client Templates Management page
This page contains a list of all client templates, already created in the system. Once you create a client template you are able to use it while creating a new client account.
The list of client templates can be sorted by name in ascending or descending order. To sort the list, click on the Name heading of the list. An arrow will show the order of sorting.
You can search through the list for a certain pattern. It may help you in case you have a great number of templates in the list and you need to work with a particular one. To search through the list, type the pattern string into the text input field and click Search. If there were any items found matching the entered pattern string, they will all be displayed in the form of a reduced list. The button Show All will revert to displaying the whole list.

On the Client templates management page, select the template you wish to edit by clicking on its name in the list.

Click Update after you are done with configuring the template.

On the Client templates management page, select the template you wish to remove by putting a checkmark in the checkbox related.
