Web Hosting Reseller

There are plenty of means of gaining profit online and one of them is to resell the web hosting solutions supplied by a certain web hosting corporation. This offers endless possibilities for everyone who would like to earn additional money. There are various varieties of web hosting reseller services, depending on the reseller's level of responsibility and, of course, on the web hosting provider that provides the service. Before going into that, let us first examine

What is a reseller web hosting service?

A hosting reseller service is a sort of web hosting account, which permits the user to create various subaccounts that can be offered to different clients. This is commonly carried out by providing the user with access to a main reseller account, via which he can set up separate hosting accounts with the server disk storage space included in the hosting reseller plan, for which he pays a given fee. This is a lot like the shared hosting service and just like it, with the majority of reseller web hosting programs, lots of reseller hosting accounts share a single web server and are not furnished with root access to the server config files. Such web hosting reseller programs are typically not that expensive. Still, they do restrain the resellers from furnishing other sorts of web hosting solutions except shared hosting plans.

Various types of web hosting reseller services

Aside from the already mentioned way of reseller hosting plans, there are also a few other setups that work just as good. However, they contrast with respect to the degrees of participation and the amount of resources that each of them presupposes. As already stated, the most common way of selling hosting services offers you restricted possibilities and you risk forfeiting your investment if things don't go well. For this reason, bigger web hosting providers like ResellersPanel offer alternative ways of reselling web hosting plans without the need to purchase anything upfront, or to even cope with the provision of client and billing support. With their reseller hosting program, the hosting reseller signs up free of cost and specifies his own retail prices for the web hosting accounts, which are being offered straight from his web storefront. Since billing transactions are taken care of by Resellers Panel's staff, the client does not need to pay for the hosting service upfront. He's merely going to obtain the difference between the retail and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The hosting reseller also has the chance to distribute web hosting services such as private virtual hosting server accounts, semi-dedicated web hosting server plans and dedicated servers. More or less, his role comes down to advertising the hosting service and offering support to the end customers and with companies that do not require preliminary payments and take care of the invoicing and technical support provision, the sole duty left for the reseller will be to advertise his private brand's web store. Another possibility will be to set up different accounts on a VPS, or on a dedicated hosting server. With most web hosting corporations, you may get those two web hosting hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other web hosting CP, already installed on them. That will allow you to create various shared hosting accounts and exert full control over both the users and the hosting server itself. Also, on a dedicated web server, you may set up various virtual hosting server accounts and resell them to your customers. One single dedicated server may store thousands of Virtual Private Server hosting accounts, based on the web server's configuration. This will permit you to deliver a wider array of web hosting solutions to your clients, which will provide you with more alternatives when popularizing your web store. By all means, using a private virtual web hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server for reseller web hosting goals is much more expensive than having a regular hosting reseller account. That's why, this alternative should be contemplated only if the web hosting reseller has enough understanding and training needed to manage a web hosting server, otherwise it's recommended to either sign up for a conventional hosting reseller program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program offered by ResellersPanel, which demands less dedication from the hosting reseller.
