Did you ever wonder what reseller hosting really is? It is basically a form of web hosting in which the owner of the account is using his or her bandwidth and hard disk space to host third party websites. Resellers basically purchase the host's services and, though marketing and advertisement, manage to sell them to third parties. Some of them might rent a dedicated server from the web hosting company, while others simply receive the right to sell a part of the hosting company's server bandwidth and storage space to their clients. The best thing about reseller hosting is the fact that the reseller is not responsible for the hardware and software parts. This is typically the web hosting company's job. Resellers are usually only responsible for acquiring customers and interacting with them. They usually forward any technical issues to the hosting company.
There are two major types of hosting: Windows and Linux reseller hosting. Both of them are very popular and both have both advantages and disadvantages. Windows hosting is, however, better than Linux reseller hosting. Before Windows Server 2003 was launched, more people worked with Linux because it was more stable and more reliable. However, once Windows Server 2003 was launched, people started to see that Windows reseller hosting was a better choice. And so they started migrating to Windows. Linux resellers are rapidly loosing popularity and this is the best time to become a Windows reseller.
If you decide to go with Windows and act as a reseller, the profits will be substantial. Why? Because there is less competition. There are not many Windows resellers and certainly not as many as Linux resellers. Less competition means you get a larger portion of the market, which, in turn, leads to higher profits. Although Linux is free and Microsoft Windows is not, this is a small price to pay. You have a lot more opportunities if you establish a good and attractive Windows reseller hosting company. If you are still having doubts regarding Windows Server 2003, you should know that it is at least equal to Linux when it comes to web hosting. Don't fall prey to the misconception that Linux is the greatest server operating system of them all! It was until Microsoft released Windows Server 2003 and closed the gap.
