Zamfoo is a cPanel plugin that provides additional features to a reseller and makes its work easy. It is a popular third party sub-reseller plugin for cPanel/WHM and it extends the capabilities of WHM. This plugin needs to be installed on the server and then can be integrated with the reseller center.

OS on which Zamfoo is compatible is CentOS, as it is the most compatible OS for cPanel/WHM. The latest version of Zamfoo 14.15 is completely compatible with CentOS 7 and cPanel. The plugin was released with lots of features that help you as a root owner to create up to 3 levels of sub-resellers. Once it is installed on a server, it automatically gets integrated with cPanel and hooks into the WHM API that allows resellers and sub-resellers to manage their hosted clients. It automatically assigns all backups to the respective owner.
