Reseller hosting is basically the provision of Web hosting services to third party companies that in turn act as Web hosts for other organizations.
The reseller from whom a client purchases the package will be the one who interacts with the parent host on the client’s behalf. Payments are made to the reseller and the technical support as well as all related services required to maintain the client’s site fall into the reseller’s hands.
