Web Hosting Reseller

There are a lot of means of generating revenue on the Internet and one of them is to sell the hosting services supplied by some hosting plans provider. This offers infinite options for everyone who would like to make extra profit. There are different sorts of reseller hosting solutions, depending on the web hosting reseller's level of responsibility and, of course, on the web hosting distributor that provides the hosting service. Prior to going into that, let us first check out

What is a web hosting reseller solution?

A reseller web hosting service is a type of hosting user account, which enables the reseller to create different sub-accounts that can be offered to various clients. This is chiefly achieved by supplying the reseller with access to a main reseller hosting account, through which he can set up separate web hosting accounts using the disk drive space provided by the reseller hosting plan, for which he pays a given price. This is much like the shared hosting service and exactly like it, with most reseller programs, many reseller web hosting accounts share the same server and are not supplied with complete root access to the web server config files. Such reseller web hosting programs are usually not that costly. Still, they do hinder the resellers from supplying other forms of hosting solutions apart from shared web hosting plans.

Different forms of reseller web hosting services

Beside the aforementioned method of web hosting reseller accounts, there are also several other ways that work just as good. Still, they differ in terms of the levels of commitment and the amount of resources that each one of them demands. As stated above, the most popular mode of reselling web hosting services offers you restricted opportunities and you risk forfeiting your money if things go wrong. For this reason, bigger web hosting suppliers like Resellers Panel offer different methods of selling web hosting packages without the need to buy anything upfront, or to even become involved in the provision of customer and invoicing support. With their reseller hosting program, the web hosting reseller signs up free of cost and determines his very own personal retail prices for the hosting plans, which are being offered directly from his web store. Since invoicing transactions are handled by Resellers Panel's staff, the reseller does not have to buy the web hosting service in advance. He's merely going to receive the difference between the retail and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the opportunity to offer hosing services such as virtual server web hosting plans, semi-dedicated accounts and dedicated web server hosting accounts. More or less, his role entails popularizing the hosting service and providing support to the end users and with web hosting companies that do not require preliminary payments and take care of the invoicing and technical support provision, the sole task left for the reseller will be to popularize his private brand's online storefront. Another alternative will be to set up separate accounts on a Virtual Private Server, or on a dedicated server. With most hosting companies, you may get those 2 web hosting hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other web hosting CP, pre-installed on them. That will allow you to create different shared web hosting plans and have full authority over both the customers and the hosting server itself. What is more, on a dedicated web server, you may create separate private virtual web hosting server accounts and resell them to your customers. One single dedicated hosting server may shelter 1000's of private virtual server web hosting accounts, depending on the web server's architecture. This will enable you to deliver a wider assortment of services to your clients, which will offer you more options when advertising your web store. Surely, using a VPS or a dedicated server for web hosting reseller goals is much more expensive than having a conventional reseller hosting account. That is the reason why, this possibility should be contemplated only on condition that the web hosting reseller has enough ability and training needed to handle a hosting server, otherwise it's recommended to either opt for a conventional reseller web hosting program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which demands less participation from the hosting reseller.
