What is reseller hosting? The main idea of reseller hosting is to be a web host who sells reseller web hosting to other (usually smaller) web hosting businesses. Reseller hosting accounts are also used by webmasters who operate more than one website.
Lately reseller business prospers, because more people want to be online with their own website and their own domain.
There are two types of reseller hosting.
1) Traditional reseller hosting
2) Private label hosting
Traditional reseller hosting is like a wholesale business.
The reseller host buys in bulk aka an entire web server and break it into small, but medium sized chunks. A smaller web host buys one of these chunks and populates it with single domain accounts of normal consumers.
The benefit for the reseller host is that he has only to support one customer while the smaller web host deals with every singe domain customer.
