Resellers can function as personal domain, by any combination of these listed types of hosting, depending on who they are affiliated with as a supplier. Resellers’ accounts may vary tremendously in size as they may have their own virtual dedicated server to a co-located server.

Virtual Dedicated Server
A virtual private server is a method of dividing a physical server computer into multiple servers that each has the appearance and capabilities of running on its own dedicated machine. The practice of slicing up a single server so that it appears as multiple servers has been common practice in computers, but has seen reappearance lately with the development of virtualization software and technologies for other architectures.

Dedicated hosting service
In Fully Managed hosting client gets his own web server and gains full control over it; however, the user typically does not own the server. Where in Self-Managed or Unmanaged hosting the user has complete administrative access to the server, that means the customer is accountable for the security and safeguarding of his own dedicated server.

Managed hosting service
The client gets his own web server on lease but is not allowed full control over it; though they are allowed to control their data via FTP or other remote management tools. The client is not allowed full control so that the provider can assure quality of service by means of not allowing the user to change the server or potentially create configuration problems.

Co-location web hosting service
It is more or less similar to the dedicated web hosting service, here the user has his colo server; the hosting company provides physical space that the server takes up and concern about the server. This is the most dominant and expensive type of the web hosting service. In the majority cases, the co-location provider may provide little or indirect support for customers machine by providing only the electrical, Internet access, and storage facilities for the server.

Clustered hosting
Clustered hosting is nothing but having multiple servers hosting the same content for better resource utilization. It eliminates the problems inbuilt with typical shared hosting infrastructures. It provides clients with a “clustered” handling of security, load balancing, and necessary website resources. A clustered hosting platform is data-driven (no human interaction is needed to condition a new account to the platform).

Some of these are open-source software that can be used, modified, and redistributed freely, with no usage restrictions.
