This is much similar to the shared web hosting service and precisely like it, with most web hosting reseller programs, many web hosting reseller accounts share one single hosting server and are not furnished with complete root access to the web server configuration files. Such reseller web hosting programs are generally not that expensive. Yet, they do hinder the web hosting resellers from selling other forms of hosting services apart from shared hosting packages.

Different sorts of web hosting reseller services
