As an industry leader in reseller hosting, we have often noticed that the number one cause preventing potential hosting resellers from joining the industry is a gap in hosting vocabulary and knowledge. It can be intimidating to research hosting companies and find yourself buried in technical jargon. Many potential resellers quickly become overwhelmed and abandon their hosting reseller aspirations.
Rather than accepting this unfortunate chain of events, we have written this post as a guide to help you get started in your reseller hosting journey. If the only obstacle between you and owning your own business is a few acronyms and concepts, then you are in luck because we plan to tear down the barriers and get you on your way to reseller hosting success.

As you set out to research reseller hosting packages, you may be confused by the GB and IP involved. You may not know exactly how large of a package you need to get started. Never fear! We answer the tough reseller hosting questions below:
What do server specs really mean?
In each hosting package, there is a list of specifications to help you understand exactly what you are getting for your money. It can be hard to understand web hosting concepts for many reasons. For example, they aren’t tangible items you can hold in your hand. Below you will find an explanation of hosting specifications in terms you can understand.
Web Hosting Space: Refers to the amount of memory needed to store data.
Bandwidth: The amount of network capacity necessary to send and retrieve data.
