There are a few different types of programs that all go by the name of reseller program. Some involve becoming the middle man for a hosting company to actually resell their product. Depending on the program you may or may not be responsible for the needs of the clients (such as; billing, support, etc.) The type of reseller program we advocate is for webmasters who are looking to host a lot of web sites with a single web host.
Many web hosts will give users a significant price break if they are hosting a lot of web sites with them. Essentially this type of reseller program is the webmaster “reselling” the hosting service to him/herself and the webmaster does not have to deal with any billing, support, or hosting issues. The host handles these for this type of reseller program.
