What Are My Duties As A Host Reseller

A host reseller has the responsibility of maintaining the server space allotted to them per your contract. Issues at the server hub are taken care of by the data center operator that cares for the infrastructure belonging to your hosting service provider. Whether it is equipment failure or connectivity issues this will be handled in house by the operations center team.

In so far as your clients are concerned you will have to maintain the relationship you have established with them. If a client cannot access features of or make changes to their web site. Maybe they are unable to see their web page at all. It is the responsibility of the host reseller to relay these problems to the primary provider. This will in turn help your clients resolve their current issues. This is one of the great things about reseller hosting. As a reseller you have no equipment, hardware or software to worry about or replace when they become out dated. Nor are you constantly tasked with maintaining the network infrastructure.
