Basically I am looking at controlling the user account creation. Only super user account shall be allow creating/deleting the user accounts. Is this possible in Ethereum?


Creating an Ethereum address requires no connection to the network, it's a 100% client-side process. You can't stop people from doing it.

You can however create a whitelist of addresses that are allowed to submit transactions to your network.
