    Okay that makes sense, so how do you know if your host is a reseller?

    Most hosts out there are indeed resellers. You can know that your host is not a reseller if they tell you they have the computers that your information is stored on in their location.

    Yeah, it is difficult to tell if a company is really a reseller or not. A reseller does not have their own server. they are basically selling another company's plan and making commission off that.

    Generally, most small hosts are resellers. Bigger hosts would find it cheaper to run multiple dedicated servers, though they might in fact have them managed by the server provider.

    There are generally numerous levels of service - Starting with the person who owns the physical location of the server. 'The Planet' are a good example, they own a massive server complex with thousands of servers running.

    Many people rent servers or many servers from these big providers, and then manage them - to resell to others as managed servers.

    Down again are your general hosts. They rent managed servers and distribute users among the accounts. These hosts often have reseller accounts available.

    Further still you have the people who buy a reseller account, and set themselves up as a host. They may only rent a small share of a server to run their operation from.

    Reseller hosting is also an inexpensive way for web hosting entrepreneurs to start a company. Most reseller hosting plans allow resellers to create their own service plans and choose their own pricing structure. In many cases, resellers are able to establish their own branding via customized control panels and name servers.
