I have the following problem.

I have a reseller hosting services which offer to my clients. One of my clients want to keep the domain and DNS management with him.

What information he needs to point "" for my resale?

Initially suggested the IP, where the client would configure the DNS type A record pointing to my IP. But I came across the following problem. My reseller has several websites, such as direct to the correct folder of the client?

My reseller is:

Not to be mean, but maybe this is a sign you shouldn't really be in the hosting business? :-/ – ceejayoz Apr 25 '12 at 3:31
@ceejayoz If you do not know the answer, do not need comments! – Ridermansb Apr 25 '12 at 3:34
The answer is "you'll need to learn how to configure your web server". This is pretty basic stuff. Like it or not, you'll get comments on StackExchange sites. – ceejayoz Apr 25 '12 at 3:35

They need to point their domains to the IP address of your hosting provider's webserver.

If you don't know what IP that is, you'll need to contact your hosting provider's support desk.

That's step one. For step two it'll depend what server software he's using. Apache would involve setting up VirtualHosts in the HTTPD conf, for example. – ceejayoz Apr 25 '12 at 3:36
Since the OP is using a "reseller hosting" service, I made the (most likely correct) assumption that a cPanel-esque control panel is in play, in which case this would be take care of automatically. – EEAA Apr 25 '12 at 3:39
Probably, yeah. Adding a second domain to an account is probably going to create a specific folder structure, though, so he's going to have to move stuff around if he already has it in a different structure. +1 for you, though. – ceejayoz Apr 25 '12 at 3:41
Well, with cPanel at least, one can create "add-on domains" which are basically just additional NameVirtualHosts, that do automatically get their own folder as well. You're right, though, dude ought to know how to configure his own webserver, GUI or not. – EEAA Apr 25 '12 at 3:42
@RidermandeSousaBarbosa - Most likely the IP is sufficient. How are we supposed to give you an authoritative answer, though? We can't possibly know how your hosting provider has things set up. Contact their support desk. That's what you pay them for. – EEAA Apr 25 '12 at 3:58
