GoDaddy later started the Reseller Program under a white label name of Wild West Domains. GoDaddy being the largest Domain Registrar in the world, people are more comfortable going with it.
With GoDaddy Reseller Program you can sell all the products which GoDaddy sells on its website. As GoDaddy has large variety of products in portfolio, so you can take maximum benefit from it.
Resellers Panel is not well known in the market, but they too have large variety of hosting products in portfolio. If you don’t want take a pain of accepting payment and providing support to your customers after sales they are good at that.
Biggest constraint which seems to me is that they accept payments directly on storefront which goes to them and they later pay you the difference or profit earned.
OpenSRS is a subsidiary brand of TuCows which is again a very famous in Canada and States. The major focus of OpenSRS is towards Domain Names, Hosted Emails, SSL Certificates, Web Security Products. They don’t do Hosting and if you are looking to resell products other than hosting they are good as they has a very competitive price.
