What Is The Difference Between Shared And Reseller Hosting

What is The Difference Between Shared and Reseller Hosting?

Shared Hosting Accounts

In terms of ownership, shared hosting account is designed for the single user and the service provider assigns a single cPanel for this purpose. User of shared hosting solution is not allowed to resell hosting to other users. Therefore, user of shared hosting is essentially the end user of hosting service, provided by host. 

Reseller Hosting Accounts

On the other hand, reseller hosting entitles users to resell hosting to other users. Reseller hosting comes with choice of number of cPanels, usually between the range of 10 to 250, to enable the user act as hosting service provider. Reseller host can control clients with help of a master control panel.

Features of Shared Hosting

Shared hosting is relatively cheaper and users can add multiple domains. This type of hosting ideally suited for startups or websites with relatively less traffic in terms of concurrent visits. Shared hosting is preferred due to its cost effectiveness and can be availed by users who are not excessively concerned about security and scalability.

Attributes of Reseller Hosting

It is essentially a business development hosting model offered by service provider. It is like buying a commodity and reselling under one's own brand-name to customers. Users of reseller hosting are free to setup multiple accounts by using separate cPanels and domain names. It also enables reseller to add multiple IP addresses and SSL certificates. Reseller hosting is used for creation of large number of hosting accounts and sell each individual account as shared hosting account. Reseller host continues to rely on the primary host for all types of technical support as well as additional bandwidth and other resources.
