What is Reseller Hosting?

Reseller Hosting is the ability to resell website hosting.  You can sell your services under your own brand and choose your own price.  This can help to enhance web design businesses or other business consulting services where you can provide websites and web hosting services. InMotion Hosting handles all the back-end tasks – server management, hardware/software upgrades, maintenance, etc. –  while you focus on your business.
