Answer by Brian
Cloud hosting is the practice of running Web applications in a “cloud” — a collection of external, virtual servers that are interconnected, either on a corporate network or via the public Internet. The idea behind cloud hosting is to give customers a resource that is highly scalable, reliable and available, with little or no regard to the system’s underlying technology or physical location.

You would be amazed how easy, lucrative, and cheap it is to become your very own web hosting company! We give you all the tools and support needed to have you up and running in just a few minutes time. All of our reseller hosting plans allow you to create unlimited web sites under your own packages, prices, and brand. The best part is that you keep 100% of the money you collect.

How does reseller hosting work?
You have a reseller hosting account control panel called Web Host Manager. WHM is where you go to create your customer accounts. After filling in their account information you click “create.” This will instantly set them up with their very own control panel called cPanel. This is where they will go to administer their website. Once they are logged into cPanel they can create subdomains, email addresses, change passwords, and much more without requiring any help from you or us.

So although they are two different things, technically you could have – if you could find it – reseller hosting that’s built on cloud hosting.
