I think master reseller hosting is a bad idea. If you need more resources then what a reseller hosting account can give, then you need to go to a VPS. Any host that offers master reseller hosting as a service, has a cloud solution that can take the abuse or you are over loading the servers. I have been working with web hosting and technology for over 10 years, and in all my time I have never seen a web hosting company that offers Master Reseller hosting, and not abuse there servers.

In my personal opinion, I could never trust hosts that provide master reseller plans. You can call me silly. I just have an instinct that this is a wrong path to choose.

That's not the point of a Master Reseller plan.

1) Reseller offers Shared plans
2) Master Reseller offers Reseller and Shared Plans
3) VPS offers Alpha Reseller, Master Reseller, Reseller and Shared Plans

but the more steps you provide from your server the less control you have on what is placed on your server.

I dont think this is true for every VPS Host. I know with a lot of certainty that under $20 you can get a powerful VPS that handles as much as most reseller plans for the same money. And of course the VPS gives you full access

yes you can get an unmanaged one for under $20

i have an unmanaged VPS with the following that i use for testing

Disc Space - 120GB
CPU core - 4
Ram - 3GB
vSwap - 3GB
Bandwidth - 3000 GB
IPv4 - 1

$8.95

then you would need to add $15 if you want cpanel, then any other addons

the same provider does managed VPS

1GB RAM
1GB vSwap
50GB Disk Space
2 vCPU Cores (Fair Share)
1TB (1000GB) Bandwidth
cPanel VPS License
Full Management
1Gbps port
3x IPv4 addresses
6x IPv6 addresses
OpenVZ / Breeze Control Panel

$49.95

nearest to my unmanaged would be

4GB RAM
4GB vSwap
150GB Disk Space
4 vCPU Cores (Fair Share)
4TB (4000GB) Bandwidth
cPanel VPS License
Full Management
1Gbps port
3x IPv4 addresses
6x IPv6 addresses
OpenVZ / Breeze Control Panel

$89.95

The cost of vps is cheap,but the cost of cpanel+whmcs(which some host include) is costly overall.However if you get a vps from good host,it will give better performance than average re-seller hosts.

The master reseller plans are ideal for users with no knowledge on managing servers, so they can resell reseller plans without having root access to a VPS or a server. With Master Reseller plans hosting owner can concentrate on marketing than spending time managing servers.

In my experience, after a certain time, once they have enough customers for themselves, master reseller clients move to dedi. Because from a customers perspective, master reseller hosting lacks some benefits that can be crucial when you have a decent client base. Such as root access. If you have 200 sites under your MR, providing support without root access can be time consuming and your clients may not like it. That leaves you to only possible option - a server.

In ithis perspective, if a provider can plan it good enough to maintain a healthy environment on the server, yes, it is profitable.

MR can cause issues for the main server host. Take your example

you have a VPS and have 200 Master Resellers and each of them have 200 resellers who then have 200 shared accounts each.

so now your server has 8,000000 accounts on, but you can only control and oversee 200 ( the 200 Master Resellers) as all the others are not your clients, so you have no control on what is being hosted on the server

I'd say this statistics is not a realtime scenario. If you are going to offer shared hosting from a VPS, let alone reseller or MR, you need to reconsider your business plan.

not that scenario but even say you have

10 MR who have 10 R each who they have 10 shared account sill gives 1000 accounts on the server and you only have control over 10 of them.

well you need a VPS or Ded server to offer MR.

offering MR or even worse Alpha MR gives you less control of what goes on your server.

Aplha and MR are not same, if managed properly, MR is profitable.

As I said earlier, clients who get 10 resellers tend to move to dedi. It becomes virtually impossible for them to provide support to their clients if they don't.
