Maybe, most of you have heard that there are hundreds of types of web hosting but it is doubtful that somebody has heard of the so called reseller hosting. It is really not very popular as the terms, conditions and purposes which it is used for are quite different. Anyway, who is interested to use reseller hosting? Who is interested to provide the others with reseller hosting? What does reseller hosting mean in reality? These are just a few of the questions which are going to be answered in this article! All you need to do is read it to the end and try to memorize everything related to the cheap reseller hosting.
So, it would probably be best if we started off with describing what reseller hosting is. Basically, that is a type of web hosting which is usually bought by one person so that he/she can resell it to anyone else for more money. So, you probably understand that the huge difference is that we have three people involved here (first provider, second provider who buys from the first provider and resells, and client- the one who uses the hosting for personal purposes).
Normally, you'd think that the whole process makes no logic. Why do we need the so called 'second provider'? Wouldn't it cheaper if we got the hosting directly from the first provider? Of course, it would but the first providers have got other plans. What they do is selling very cheap reseller hosting but in large quantities. So, they do not need to pay for marketing, advertising etc but just have several serous clients (the so called second providers) and that is all! Of course, the second providers resell the web hosting as they aim at increasing the profit up to at least 50%. This means that if they paid $10 for just web hosting for just one person, they try to resell it for at least $15. To some of you- it may sound great; to others- dishonest! Anyway, like it or not- it is a fact and one of your web hosting providers might also have been reseller. However, this is not very likely to happen in reality as the providers are obliged to inform all potential clients that what they are going to pay for is the so called.
