As Internet is becoming a best resource to run a online business and earn lot of money through online Internet activities, I have seen many people getting diverted towards reseller hosting business. The main reason behind this is ‘Reseller Hosting business can be started without having any deep technical knowledge of command over support services. Many web hosting companies have a big amount of bandwidth available but the ground level customer is not in need of such a large among of bandwidth for their tiny websites. In this situation a Reseller Host who works as a middle agent between web hosting company and webmasters plays a crucial role by purchasing high bandwidth and distributing it in small among as required by small webmasters.
We will find many web hosting companies encouraging the Reseller business as they want their business to grow in remuneration of a tiny part of profit on sales of direct deals without webmasters. As the technical support staff of a web hosting company is highly expertise in handling the technical issues regarding hosting, a Reseller does not need to play any role regarding actual hosting operations. One of the part of this technical knowledge is that many people are not aware of the the difference between Linux Reseller Hosting and Windows Reseller Hosting and hence the get confused while selecting one of these two.
In Reseller web hosting the reseller can use and given disk space and bandwidth as he required. It is up to him how much he want to sell to the third party customer’s web hosting services at higher rates than the rate at which he has purchased it from a web hosting company and how much to keep for his own Website Hosting. As there are main two type of web hosting ‘Windows Hosting and Linux hosting’, both are used very widely in Reseller business also. If we compared these both then we will find that Linux reselling is more often chosen by Reseller and the reason behind it is absence of Incensing fee which is charged by Microsoft windows. Linux is a open source and easily down-loadable for free of cost. One more advantage Linux has over windows is that it is very reliable for various scrips of very popular languages like My-SQL, Perl and PHP. It can handle large databases without any problem and with as equal security as a Windows server provides.
Now we will look at some strengths of Windows reseller hosting which does not comes with Linux Reseller Hosting. Windows platform is known of highly supporting to ASP scripts which are Microsoft’s very popular application for designing websites. The RDMS which comes under SQL is responsible for highest level of reliability can be managed with Windows Reseller hosting. Furthermore just using a single cPanel a Windows Reseller can manage many clients which is hardly possible for a Linux Reseller, and this causes making Windows Reseller hosting more time saving and effortless. Microsoft’s SQL servers are better for managing critical business application.
