The first advantage of reseller hosting is the amount of server resources that are available to you. Even if you decide not to resell the hosting service, you can use these server resources to operate your own web sites and save money in the process. However, unlike other web hosting plans, reseller hosting gives you the ability to allocate these server resources to your clients seamlessly. In fact, it even gives you the tools needed to build a web hosting site, create client accounts, designate hosting plans and even bill your customers on a scheduled basis!
You are essentially given everything needed to become a successful web hosting provider. Some reseller hosting plans even give you the ability to rebrand your hosting control panel with custom logos and designs to portray authenticity and professionalism. After you have gathered a reasonable amount of clients you can even sell your hosting business for a very hefty profit. If you are trying to get into the hosting industry there is no better way than to use a a reseller hosting account.
