The issue I have with master reseller accounts is that as you sell more accounts the resource drain becomes proportionate. As each of these new resellers sells to the end user it only complicates it more. There is no real control over how many resellers are on a given server. It would be up to the actual server owner to determine what the threshhold is. This means you cannot guarantee the quality of the hosting throughout your downline.

Tremendous headaches in my opinion. I would much rather purchase a dedicated and be in control of the environment to ensure the speed and quality of the service. I also would never offer master reseller hosting as I would hate for it to balloon into a huge issue. Again this is just my preference and for some master reseller hosting works.

Master reseller accounts - some work and some don't. It depends on how much you stay on top of that server. They can become a real headache.

I can advise you to compare all web hosting services, as it is a top priority for your new web host business to be well-provided with all necessary tools.

Master Reseller is ok, If the web host you are buying it from is reliable and they have a good hardware configuration.

This is simply allowing Resellers to sell Reseller accounts. So unless your hardware has a lots of space and A good configuration to handle many accounts, I hardly think its a good idea.

To say this is a bad business model, is I think a little harsh. These seem like a good way to build a client base before moving to something bigger and better.

Master Resellers are essentially a bad idea especially if u are looking for a reliable server. Master Resellers will tend to make the server oversold and the past security issues with scripts like Zamfoo make things worse.

If one really needs to sell resellers, better go for managed cpanel VPS.

Never use it, I do not see sense, considering that if you are in this business, the idea is to provide reliable service.

What do you think about master reseller?

This is profitable or bad for long term?

I've used Alpha and Master reseller accounts for years. Some are good some are bad.

The software isn't the problem it's how and who the server is managed by

you can offer MR plans and still provide a reliable service. it all comes down to how you manage the MRs.

you could set up MR plans and just let them go wild, or set up a MR with limits, so they can only have a limited number of resellers and then set it so that even their resellers can only have a limited number of cpanel accounts, so you control how many accounts goes on the server.
As all these accounts are on your server then you can do periodic checks on sites and if you find a site that does not look right or is breaking your TOS then you can inform your own client of this and even suspend the site

There is a jungle out there. With so many "honest" hosts offering everything you only dreamt of coming across, you will probably be disoriented. With so many bandwidths, spaces, CGIs, FTPs, features and all other sorts of information you read about, you'll probably get dazed and confused.
