Shared is i guess on one server and cheap reseller is a full control of a lot of space and a lot of other things(I got reseller ) and regular hosting is just fast hosting Smile

Re: Different types of hosts
A shared web hosting service refers to a web hosting service where many websites reside on one web server connected to the Internet. This is generally the most economical option for hosting, as many people share the overall cost of server maintenance. Generally the hosting company provides partition or separate place or any section on the server for each site to keep it separate from other sites.
Example for a shared hosting provider: Tucktail.com
Reseller Hosting is a process where a third party purchases a host's services as a wholesale and sells them to customers for some profit. A certain portion of hard drive and bandwidth is allocated to the reseller account. The reseller may rent a dedicated server from a hosting company, or resell shared hosting services. In the latter case, the reseller is simply given the permission to sell a certain amount of disk space and bandwidth to his own customers without renting a server from a web hosting company he signed for a reseller account with.
Example for a Reseller hosting provider: Goresellers.com
A regular hosting is a normal hosting where an individual can host his or her site with the help of a Web host. In a regular hosting the customer has all rights to choose his or her own requirements from the host and pay accordingly to it. It may be either dedicated hosting or shared hosting or any other type. With limited space or unlimited space.
Example for a Web host: Tucktail.com
