What is reseller hosting?
Have you heard of reseller hosting? This arrangement could prove beneficial to you if you have purchased web hosting services from a parent web hosting company and you feel that you can allocate some of your resources to another party.
Doesn't that sound attractive? You can share some of the resources on a web server like disk space, processor, bandwidth, RAM, etc. and get a recurring source of income.
But what is reseller hosting and how does it work?
Reseller hosting is a type of web hosting in which the account owner uses the allocated disk space and bandwidth to manage third party websites. The owner of the account is the reseller because he purchases the services from a parent web hosting company and sells it like his.
Of course, you hope to profit from the sale of web hosting services to third-party customers. But even if you don't get a profit, it still wouldn't hurt to have other people pay for your web hosting needs, right?
Reseller web hosting can be compared to renting a large house or apartment and then accepting tenants or borders. The tenants pay you, while you pay the rent to the owner of the house.
