Getting Started as a "Self-Serve" Partner

Host API: (to locate your API key, please visit the Partner Portal)

The Partner API allows you to create a user account and add a domain (either CNAME or full DNS setups), which will be associated with your partner account and give you control to add/delete domains. 

The Client API gives you the ability to manage Cloudflare settings for individual accounts (e.g. update DNS records, select security levels, choose performance features, determine the caching level, create page rules etc.) for domains that were added via the Partner API.

The Reseller API allows you to create paid subscriptions for domains that are associated with a given partner account.

The Client API allows you also to add domains on Cloudflare but these will not be associated with your partner account.  As a partner, if you added your customer's domain to Cloudflare via the Host API or one of the associated plugins (e.g. the Cloudflare plugins cPanel or Plesk), you are able to manage their domain settings using the Client API. The Host API will return the user_key and user_api_key when employing the 'user create' call.

(N.B. it is not possible to add customer domains to Cloudflare via the Partner Portal, this can only be done via one of our plugins or the API).
