A web host reseller account is a web hosting account that allows one to generate hosting packages to sell to his/her clients. Not only that one can also host his/her multiple sites using the disk space allotted to the single hosting account.
Web host reseller accounts normally come with a reseller-level control panel that allows one to create packages of his/her choice.
One can also assign disk space and bandwidth to each site on the account and can change the space and bandwidth specifications, in case it is required by the site for any modification or change.
Generally reseller accounts provide the option for private nameservers also known as private label, personalized nameservers, or virtual name servers. Example, if one’s reseller account is with Some Name Hosting and his/her company’s name is let say Name Services; now in that case one’s clients will enter ns1.examplename.com and ns2.examplename.com for the nameservers for his/her domains.
It’s easy to handle account setup, billing and support for one’s client using a web host reseller account. Usually one’s web host provider maintains the servers and answers support questions.
Talking about size a few starter reseller hosting packages are as small as just 500 MB, while other reseller providers offer packages starting at 1 GB or even larger. Not only that a wide range of packages is also available, with few going as high as 30 GB of disk space.
