Web Hosting Reseller

There are a lot of means of gaining revenue on the web and one of them is to sell the hosting services furnished by a given hosting packages provider. This offers countless opportunities for everyone who wants to generate extra profit. There are different types of web hosting reseller solutions, based on the reseller's degree of responsibility and, of course, on the hosting service provider that offers the web hosting service. Prior to going into that, let us first discuss

What is a web hosting reseller solution?

A reseller hosting service is a kind of hosting user account, which permits the reseller to set up various sub-accounts that can be sold to various clients. This is normally achieved by giving the reseller access to a master hosting reseller account, through which he can set up separate hosting accounts with the hard disk storage space provided by the web hosting reseller plan, for which he pays a given charge. This is a lot like the shared web hosting solution and precisely like it, with the majority of web hosting reseller programs, many web hosting reseller accounts share one server and do not obtain complete root-level access to the web server configuration files. Such hosting reseller programs are normally not that high-priced. However, they do prevent the resellers from promoting other sorts of hosting services apart from shared web hosting packages.

Different forms of hosting reseller solutions

Aside from the already mentioned way of web hosting reseller plans, there are also several different schemes that work just as good. However, they contrast in terms of the degrees of participation and the amount of resources that each one of them requires. As already mentioned, the most common mode of reselling web hosting services offers you restricted possibilities and you risk losing your capital if things go wrong. Due to this reason, bigger hosting corporations like Resellers Panel offer alternative methods of selling web hosting packages without the need to pay for anything beforehand, or to even deal with the provision of customer and billing support. With their web hosting reseller program, the reseller subscribes for free and determines his own retail prices for the services, which are being sold directly from his online storefront. Because invoicing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel's team, the user does not have to buy the service beforehand. He's just going to obtain the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the option to resell hosing services such as VPS server hosting plans, semi-dedicated web hosting server plans and dedicated web server hosting plans. More or less, his role involves advertising the hosting service and providing support to the end clients and with hosting providers that do not require preliminary installments and cope with the invoicing and customer support provision, the sole assignment left for the web hosting reseller will be to advertise his private brand's online store. Another alternative will be to create separate user accounts on a virtual private hosting server, or on a dedicated web hosting server. With the majority of web hosting firms, you may receive those 2 web hosting web hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different CP, already installed on them. That will permit you to set up various shared web hosting plans and exert full authority over both the users and the web server itself. Also, on a dedicated hosting web server, you may create separate virtual private web server accounts and sell them to your clients. A single dedicated hosting server may shelter 1000's of private virtual web hosting server accounts, depending on the web server's specifications. This will permit you to deliver a more extensive array of web hosting solutions to your customers, which will furnish you with more alternatives when promoting your web storefront. Surely, using a virtual web hosting server or a dedicated server for reseller web hosting aims is much more costly than utilizing a regular web hosting reseller account. So, this alternative should be contemplated only in case the hosting reseller has sufficient understanding and practice demanded to administer a hosting server, otherwise it's recommended to either opt for a normal reseller web hosting program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program offered by ResellersPanel.com, which requests less involvement from the hosting reseller.
