A website reseller is someone who offers website development and hosting. Usually a website reseller owns a site that offers other services or products. Website development is just one of his many products or services. He does not develop the sites but instead gets them from a website development company and simply resells them through website reseller package or website reseller program. In other words, website resellers resell websites to their already existing clients and prospective new ones. A website reseller is like an agent who sells websites to businesses, institutions, agencies and individuals who need websites. Through various website reseller packages or website reseller programs which he gets from the web development company, he is able to offer attractive packages to the end clients or website owners.
As website reseller as an agent, provides many benefits or advantages to the end clients or the website owners. For example, in the price of the site alone, websites become cheaper because the website reseller can offer them at various prices with various services or features included. The website reseller gets the websites from the web development company. He can now pass it on at a more competitive price to the clients because he can make different packages. For small businesses, he can offer them packages with few features. As the business grows and the sites must be enhanced to meet its many needs, the website reseller can now offer him sites with more features. Thus, website owners have the option to buy sites that they can afford and need at the moment.
At the same time with a website reseller in between the web development company and the website owners, quality and fair price is guaranteed. This is because as an agent, he is forced to always provide the best price and services to his clients or else they will find another website developer. Also, in order to attract more clients and keep his business going, he must also be competitive. To accomplish all these, the reseller must find a good web development and hosting company. He must ensure that all the complaints and concerns of his clients are met. And even before the clients consider switching to another company, he has already found a new web development company who can take care of all the concerns of his clients. In other words, the reseller monitors the quality of service as well as the price of the websites for the benefit of his clients. And since he is not the one who develops and hosts the sites, he is free to find another company that can provide the best quality of service to the customers. This is in fact one of the differences of seeking the service from website reseller and from those that actually develop the website. The reseller acts as quality control for the websites.
