We’ve had a few inquiries about master reseller accounts and the question always is why do we not offer them? Well I figured it was time to shed some light on exactly why we’re never going to offer them.
The first issue is with a master reseller account you essentially have the ability to fill a server and you do not need to actually manage it. You can create reseller accounts and shared accounts which combined can easily fill a server. So in order for us to offer reliable master reseller accounts we’d be charging over $100/month for a reasonable account. Fact is there are hosts out there if you can call them that which are selling these accounts for $10/month. Of course their reliability is not even remotely close to that of ours but none the less they are offering cPanel based master reseller accounts.
The next issue is the actual software. There isn’t really any solid software to even offer this sort of feature. The most popular one is the Deasoft made one which based on my reading the company does not offer great support and the software itself has been extremely buggy.
Now I’d never say never to master reseller accounts, but at this time based on just these two reasons alone we’re not offering them. In the future who knows we may, but it’ll be priced in such a way that the service will be just as reliable as our other services while us still making a healthy profit.
