Reseller accounts are accounts which allow resellers to create accounts meaning that they have the ability to host multiple domains and clients.
They are normally hosted within a shared environment meaning that they are open to the elements that can cause downtime within a normal shared environment – this puts reseller accounts at a disadvantage when compared to a VPS server or a dedicated server.
However, unlike VPS and dedicated servers, reseller accounts are relatively cheap meaning that anyone can become a web hosting these days – this fact is also what is fuelling something which is known as the ‘kiddie host market’.
A reseller account is perfect for you if you are new to the concept of reseller hosting and don’t require custom server modifications or if you only want to start out small and grow from there.
With most hosts you have the option to upgrade your reseller package to a VPS or dedicated server at any time without any downtime which ensures if you grow out of your reseller account then you can upgrade to a dedicated environment without causing yourself or your customers any trouble.
