What is reseller hosting?
Reseller hosting is a service that web hosting providers offer. This service allows a person or a business to sell web hosting services with their own label, also known as white-label selling. In other words, a hosting provider rents hard drive space and bandwidth to your company, and you rent this space out to your clients.
Whether you are a designer, web developer, or just want to start your own hosting business, reselling hosting is the easiest way to earn some extra cash. You can start a hosting company to supplement an existing income or create an entirely new income stream. The reason for this is that there the startup costs are low, it’s relatively simple to start and there is a high demand for these services.
