The Nature of Reseller Hosting

There are many ways of gaining money on the web and one of them is to sell the hosting services offered by a particular provider. This presents limitless opportunities for everybody who would like to generate additional profit. There are several varieties of reseller hosting services, based on the hosting reseller's degree of participation and, of course, on the web hosting supplier that offers the hosting service. Before going into that, let's first examine

What is a reseller hosting solution?

A web hosting reseller solution is a type of web hosting account, which permits the user to create various sub-accounts that can be resold to different customers. This is normally achieved by providing the user with access to a main web hosting reseller account, through which he can create various web hosting accounts availing of the web server storage space included in the web hosting reseller package, for which he pays a certain tax. This is a lot similar to the shared hosting service and just like it, with the majority of reseller hosting programs, numerous web hosting reseller accounts share one and the very same web server and do not get root access to the server config files. Such web hosting reseller programs are normally not that high-priced. Yet, they do impede the hosting resellers from promoting other types of hosting services aside from shared hosting plans.

Different kinds of reseller hosting services

Apart from the already mentioned way of hosting reseller packages, there are also a few other setups that work just as fine. Yet, they differ with respect to the degrees of involvement and the amount of resources that each of them entails. As already stated, the most popular mode of reselling solutions gives you restricted options and you risk losing your funds if things don't go well. This is why, bigger hosts like ResellersPanel provide alternative modes of reselling web hosting accounts without the need to purchase anything in advance, or to even get involved in the provision of client and billing support. With their web hosting reseller program, the web hosting reseller subscribes free of charge and selects his very own personal retail prices for the hosting solutions, which are being sold straight from his online storefront. As billing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel's staff, the client does not have to purchase the hosting service beforehand. He's just going to obtain the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price as a commission. The reseller also has the option to resell hosting services such as VPS web hosting servers, semi-dedicated web hosting servers and dedicated web server plans. More or less, his job involves advertising the hosting service and offering support to the end users and with service providers that do not require preliminary installments and handle the billing and technical support provision, the only assignment left for the web hosting reseller will be to advertise his personal brand's web store. Another possibility will be to set up different user accounts on a virtual web server, or on a dedicated web server. With the majority of web hosting service providers, you may receive those two web hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another hosting Control Panel, already installed on them. That will permit you to create different shared hosting plans and exert absolute control over both the customers and the server itself. Additionally, on a dedicated server, you may create various Virtual Private Server hosting accounts and offer them to your customers. One single dedicated hosting server may host thousands of virtual server hosting accounts, depending on the web server's specs. This will enable you to deliver a greater array of web hosting services to your customers, which will present you with more possibilities when popularizing your online storefront. Certainly, using a private virtual web hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server for hosting reseller aims is much more costly than using an ordinary reseller hosting user account. Hence, this alternative should be contemplated only on condition that the hosting reseller has sufficient ability and practice demanded to manage a web hosting server, otherwise it's recommended to either sign up for a standard reseller web hosting program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program courtesy of ResellersPanel, which requests less dedication from the reseller.
