What is reseller hosting?

Reseller hosting is where businesses sell website space to other businesses or individuals. The website reseller will buy a large amount of server storage space and bandwidth from a provider with data centres, like ourselves. This will be at a reduced 'wholesale' rate, so that they're able to make a profit. They will sell this on as a package, including email.

Effectively, the reseller becomes the hosting provider to the third party. They will often brand themselves as such. Companies like 20i offer their resellers the option of re-branding control panels, known as 'white label' hosting.

Resellers will often become responsible for much of the administration of the business or individual's website. However, they may provide their customers with a control panel to make changes themselves. For example, our control panel for customers of resellers is called StackCP. This is its default name; it can be rebranded by the reseller.

20i provide reseller hosting packages to all sizes of businesses, from one-person web designer startups to web design agencies and large successful hosting providers. Our directors were responsible for the first reseller hosting accounts available in the UK. 20i's reseller accounts include many additional features, such as web hosting business automation software.

Here's a handy video describing what makes our Reseller Hosting package different to others:
