Saad has been going through WebHostingTalk and one thing that he's noticed is that people post lots of questions about reseller hosting. In the past he's been hosting his different websites on different web hosts. He's used managed WordPress hosting, shared hosting, etc., but he couldn't fathom why someone would need a reseller hosting. He's asking to be educated on this type of hosting and, if he has multiple websites/blogs, should he be using it? There are already various explanations giving some of the benefits of using reseller hosting, whilst there's also a claim that reseller hosting is dead. What's your take? Do you use or sell reseller hosting? Are you running a business as a reseller or simply using this type of hosting as a means to keep your sites in one place but isolated from each other?

No, it's not another "This panel is better than that panel" thread. Instead, Guillermo asks if we feel like we're back in the 90s when there were many control panels, none of them compatible with each other. He asks us to imagine hosting providers working together to create standards for account packing, backups, data storage, etc., and an open-source project to create an API and the foundation for a web hosting control panel (not the GUI, only the API and scripts). In this way, each hosting company can create its control panel, but all are compatible because they all use the same open-source API and standards. He suggests no more monopolies, no more yearly price increases, and no more incompatibilities. He's the first to ask if he's dreaming, or is something like this doable and realistic? It would certainly make it easier for customers (and their new hosts) who want to move from one provider to another when the hosts use different control panels. What do you think?
