Reseller Hosting

There are many ways of generating revenue on the Internet and one of them is to sell the web hosting solutions offered by a certain web hosting firm. This provides countless options for everybody who wishes to generate more money. There are different sorts of hosting reseller solutions, depending on the hosting reseller's level of involvement and, of course, on the web host that provides the hosting service. Prior to going into that, let's first examine

What is a reseller hosting service?

A hosting reseller service is a sort of hosting user account, which permits the user to create separate sub-accounts that can be resold to different clients. This is mostly accomplished by offering the reseller access to a main hosting reseller account, via which he can create various web hosting accounts utilizing the server disk storage space provided by the reseller web hosting package, for which he pays a certain price. This is much like the shared hosting solution and precisely like it, with the majority of hosting reseller programs, multiple hosting reseller accounts share one web server and are not granted full root-level access to the web server config files. Such web hosting reseller programs are normally not that expensive. Still, they do prevent the web hosting resellers from supplying other kinds of web hosting solutions aside from shared packages.

Various types of hosting reseller solutions

Apart from the aforementioned manner of reseller hosting accounts, there are also a few different ways that work just as fine. Yet, they differ with respect to the degrees of involvement and the amount of cash that each one of them necessitates. As mentioned above, the most common mode of reselling hosting services offers you limited options and you risk losing your cash if things don't work out. Due to this reason, bigger hosting corporations such as ResellersPanel.com provide alternative methods of selling hosting packages without having to buy anything beforehand, or to even deal with the provision of customer and invoicing support. With their hosting reseller program, the web hosting reseller registers free of cost and specifies his very own personal retail prices for the web hosting services, which are being offered directly from his online store. Since billing transactions are tackled by Resellers Panel's team, the client does not need to purchase the web 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 possibility to sell web hosting solutions such as private virtual web hosting servers, semi-dedicated web hosting accounts and dedicated web server hosting plans. More or less, his role involves popularizing the service and providing support to the end users and with web hosting service providers that do not demand preliminary charges and are responsible for the invoicing and technical support provision, the sole assignment left for the web hosting reseller will be to advertise his personal brand's online store. Another option will be to set up different user accounts on a Virtual Private Server, or on a dedicated server. With most hosting distributors, you may receive those two web hosting web hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different web hosting Control Panel, already installed on them. That will enable you to set up different shared hosting packages and exert total control over both the users and the server itself. Moreover, on a dedicated server, you may set up separate virtual private hosting server accounts and resell them to your customers. A single dedicated web hosting server may shelter thousands of private virtual server accounts, based on the server's configuration. This will enable you to sell a bigger variety of hosting solutions to your customers, which will present you with more possibilities when popularizing your web storefront. Of course, utilizing a private virtual hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server for reseller hosting aims is much more expensive than utilizing an ordinary reseller hosting user account. This is the reason why, this alternative should be examined only if the web hosting reseller has sufficient understanding and practice needed to administer a web hosting server, otherwise it's recommended to either sign up for a normal reseller web hosting program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program offered by ResellersPanel.com, which demands less commitment from the web hosting reseller.
