Aaron Is a Website Developer and has multiple customers for whom he develops websites. However, some of his client’s are not technically sound, so they want Aaron to manage their websites and also Host them as they have no clue how hosting is done.
Now suppose Aaron has 30 client’s who want their websites to be managed and hosted by Aaron, however, it would be very difficult for Aaron to manage and keep a track all these websites individually. So Aaron approaches Hostripples and checks their reseller package where he can host 30 websites all under his single account. He has to pay Hostripples for the reseller package which is quite cheaper than what it would have cost him to host the websites individually. So now Aaron can provide his customers cheap hosting package and also charge them accordingly.
Here it’s a Win-Win Situation for both Aaron and his client’s as it reduces the hassle of managing 30 websites separately and his client’s get webhosting for a cheaper price.
As a Developer you might have multiple client’s who you design the websites for, In this case it would be very beneficial for you to start with a Reseller Hosting packages as it allows to host multiple websites and can be centrally managed using only one login account.
Bloggers usually have multiple Domains, specifically related to the type of content they like to write. This means they can have 1 to 100’s of blogs at a time as it’s their primary source of income or as a hobby. So to manage all these domains, bloggers usually prefer to sign up with a reseller package which makes managing multiple blogs easier for them.
If you are a person who is an hosting enthusiast and wish to build a business in this industry, you can start with a Reseller Hosting package and market it as per your choice and eventually build your customer base and then move on to a server, as a Reseller hosting package gives you almost the same environment as an individual server but with some limitations. If you are someone enthusiastic about web hosting and can sell hosting packages, you can build a massive business out of it.
Affiliate marketers also usually need more domains, depending on the types of products they are selling, it might be 1 product or 100’s of different products, so they might need to write blogs and descriptions of the products and eventually sell them online, so they need high traffic to their websites and blogs with multiple domains, so Reseller Hosting might just come handy.
In order to understand how Reseller hosting works, you might need to know how Shared Hosting Works or the very basics of webhosting. Let’s start with a scenario:-
Imagine a Server (a computer with high specifications) as a tall multistoried residential building. Now for you to live, you would need a single flat in that building. You do not need to own the whole building to stay; you just need a small portion of the building which you can rent for a reasonable price, which is affordable for you. Shared server is a similar concept, where you do not need to own the whole server; you can simply rent a small portion of the server which is cheap and affordable for you. So to say, Shared Hosting Package is a small portion of the server that you rent. Similarly there might be several other individuals like you who can rent from the same server, like similar other individuals rent a flat in the same building.
Coming back to Reseller Hosting, Consider the same scenario as above but this time you own 10 flats in the same building. So what you can do is, you can yourself stay in 1 flat and rent out other flats so you get some money from the Rent. Similarly in Reseller hosting, you own a bigger chunk of the server where you can rest the remaining space to other websites and they pay you for hosting.
