A recent Web Hosting Geeks report said reseller hosting often provides the best way to enter the virtual server hosting industry.
According to the report, choosing the right control panel and deciding on the best host to provide the reseller service is critical to long-term success.
Currently, WHM is the most popular reseller control panel, the report said. The main reason behind its popularity is its natural compatibility with cPanel. Reseller control panels tend to provide more features than other panels because the reseller needs to setup new accounts, suspend services and perform other advanced tasks.
In terms of choosing the right host company, the report said reliability should be a critical part of the solution. The reseller's reputation as a secure and reliable hosting service is dependent on the host's ability to maintain server uptime.
An earlier Web Hosting Geeks report said reseller hosting often provides a quality solution for companies unable to afford or commit to an enterprise class VPS solution. While enterprise VPS servers are typically more powerful, reseller hosting can be comparable and is often available at lower costs.
