Reseller hosting is a type of hosting where a customer buys resources from a hosting provider in bulk. They just provide all the resources to their reseller at wholesale discounted prices. Here the primary host does not get involved with the new customers. The account owner(reseller) in turn puts up their markup and create their own plans and resells the space and resources to their customer. The reseller is the hosting provider for the new customers as the reseller is allowed to use their brand name.
Reseller hosting is an affordable solution for people who intend to start their own web hosting business without having to do any major investment. The new customers are benefited as they get plans at cheaper prices although the support level may not be satisfactory. The reseller will need to have technical support team to help their customers as relying and reporting issues to primary host takes time and this will affect the performance of the websites. Reseller hosting plans
are available in both Linux and Windows servers. Reseller hosting works as a secondary income for the web developers and web designers who can sell the plans to their customers.
