A web host provides the platform and technology that enables users to access websites. The service provider offers numerous packages to suit different needs, including reseller hosting and shared web hosting plans.

Shared server hosting is more affordable than other web hosting options. It is good for a single website, small business site, or a site that has low traffic. Reseller hosting is for people who wish to host more than one website or sell web hosting services. Reselling is not allowed on a shared hosting plan.

What Is Shared Hosting?

The hosting option offers solutions that let multiple sites share the resources of one server. A shared web hosting plan is perfect for a blog and/or small site without advanced configuration requirements or high bandwidth requirements. Further, shared hosting providers divide all the server resources like Random Access Memory, mail server and CPU among customers.

Unlimited domains can be hosted on a shared plan through the inclusion of domains in the cPanel section ‘Addon Domains’.

What Is Reseller Hosting?

It is a form of hosting service that lets you use your designated bandwidth and RAM to host a third-party website. It entails buying wholesale hosting solutions and dividing those into smaller packages that you can sell to people.

Reseller hosting plans enable account owners to utilize their cPanel for creating and managing multiple cPanel web hosting accounts. It is possible through the WebHost Manager program. Each account gets its own hosting resources, which include a unique username/password. The hosting solution is good for a website developer or a person who wants to sell hosting to someone else. There are many reseller packages to pick from. According to the plan you choose, you could add 250 or fewer private cPanel hosting accounts.

How Both Options Differ

With shared web hosting, the web host directly allocates resources for you to use for your site. However, you cannot sell the resources to a third party when you have some extra resources. That said, it is possible to host the maximum domains you want, even though you cannot sell those to somebody else.

Reseller hosting allows buying disk space and bandwidth as well as reselling those to others. While you cannot manage the web server with a hosting account, the service provider will offer you complete access to the control panel of your reseller clientele. Reseller hosting lets you act as a hosting service provider and is appropriate for a freelance developer or entrepreneur with interests and expertise in commerce and technology.
