    I think re-seller hosting is more to do with who has control over the hosting. If all you are going to do is host sites for third parties, but don't intend to give the 3rd parties control of the sites, you don't need re-seller hosting. Re-seller hosting provides you with the ability to pass on control of the site to the 3rd party.

    Reseller hosting is a form of web hosting wherein the account owner has the ability to use his/her allotted hard drive space and bandwidth to host websites on behalf of third parties. The reseller purchases the host's services wholesale and then sells them to customers for a profit. ...

    Are you interested in Linux or Windows Reseller ? Perhaps you can provide more information about your requirements and the no. of sites you are looking to host to get more precise recommendations.

    But if, as Technut did, you will want to start hosting other people's sites, go for the re-seller account.

    There are more reasons to setup multiple sites on a reseller site than meets the eye .... take email accounts. Let me see you make a email account specific to the URL of each website on a shared account. Not a chance... or how about auto responders, or spam assassin setups on every email account or a database for each site..... I'd go crazy trying to keep multiply accounts on a singe shared site. Need I go on. There is a world of difference from 1 shared website to unlimited account reseller hosting. Added expense, please... who cant afford $4.95 a month, its a real bargain.

    Regards.

    Now that is a good move. That is what we did back in 1996 so we could manage our own sites and our own situation and not have some others (back in the day) tell us what we could or could not do with our own websites, email accounts and so on. 2 years later we had many friends and friends of friends with non-profits and business's come to us for server space... The short of it is, we are now over 10 years into web hosting and web design, and have many modules and other products that help webmasters do their jobs. If we can help, let us know.

    Regards!

    Reseller hosting is where you sell server space to someone who is going to sell space to the end web hosting user.

    Alike any other business, reseller hosting as well as affiliate business both have are at its peak of competitiveness as well as saturation. But with the use of right techniques and the selection of the right products offered by companies, one can definitely make a fair income for yourself.

    A web hosting affiliate program offered by Eukhost too is irresistible. They offer an affiliate commission of upto 300 GBP per sale. I mean that's amazing !!

    The main advantage of affiliate program over reseller hosting is the upfront investment. In case of affiliate program, there are no costs involved to get started. A reseller needs to maintain his client base and also take care of providing them support, either directly or through the main hosting company.

    On the other hand, an affiliate only has to refer a client and earn commission. Having said that, the industry has become so competitive and saturated that even affiliates require to put in the same amount of efforts and dedication to get more referrals.

    Webhosting Industry has become a very competitive business recently and resellers business has not been an exception for it and has become lot more tougher too. But the matter of fact is, it has also opened new ways of making better and higher income. And Affiliate business is one of the most popular and successful example undoubtedly.

    Affiliates Vs Resellers

    Due to the saturation of the Web Hosting business, Affiliate Programs have gained a lot of popularity and many Affiliates have managed to earn a very good amount of money through Affiliate programs.

    There are various reason for which Affiliate Programs are popular and preferred over a Reseller business one being the fact that most of the Affiliate Programs (including the Affiliate program of EUKhost.com ) are Absolutely Free to Join and hence you do not have to invest anything to become an Affiliate which is not the case when it comes to being a Reseller as you need to invest some money for being a web hosting reseller.

    Moreover, most of the Affiliate programs do not have any kind of restrictions i.e. you can join Affiliate programs of as many companies as you wish to join and earn commission. Also, if incase your Affiliate business doesn't work out, you don't loose anything as you have joined the Affiliate programs for free

    One can Signup for an Affiliate Program of EUKhost.com for Free through the link given below and earn upto 300 GBP commission per sale. For more details, please refer eUKhost Affiliate Program

    On the other hand, selling your re-selling on the back of other services can be profitable. For example, providing the hosting services as part of web design/development keeps the client's web site all under 1 supplier, so for the client, a 1-stop-shop when anything goes wrong.

    With the web hosting business arena already so competitive for the established hosts and saturated for the new ones these days, I don't think it can earn lucrative profits to resellers so soon. It would take lot of efforts, dedication and time to build a client base first and then the profits would come in gradually.
