The main difference between reseller and shared hosting packages is the WHM (Web Host Manager) panel. It is cPanel's web-based tool that allows you to create multiple standard cPanel accounts and these accounts can be resold. Reseller hosting package is a great way to start a hosting company of your own or host your clientâ€™s web properties by creating standalone cPanel accounts for them. In case there is a need for multiple IP addresses or SSL certificates, reseller hosting package must be ordered.
Shared hosting package on the other hand comes with 1 cPanel account. Multiple domains can be added via the usage of addon domains tool.
