Hosting Reseller Explained

There are lots of means of generating money on the web and one of them is to resell the hosting services furnished by some hosting plans provider. This presents unlimited possibilities for everyone who wants to gain additional profit. There are various types of hosting reseller services, based on the hosting reseller's degree of commitment and, of course, on the hosting provider that offers the hosting service. Before going into that, let's first discuss

What is a hosting reseller solution?

A hosting reseller solution is a type of hosting account, which enables the reseller to set up various subaccounts that can be resold to various customers. This is mainly achieved by supplying the reseller with access to a master hosting reseller account, through which he can create different hosting accounts using the web hosting server disk storage space offered by the hosting reseller package, for which he pays a given price. This is much similar to the shared web hosting solution and precisely like it, with the majority of hosting reseller programs, a lot of hosting reseller accounts share one and the same web server and are not granted full root-level access to the server configuration files. Such hosting reseller programs are normally not that costly. Yet, they do restrain the hosting resellers from distributing other types of hosting services except shared web hosting packages.

Different sorts of hosting reseller services

Apart from the abovementioned mode of hosting reseller packages, there are also several other setups that work just as good. Still, they contrast with respect to the degrees of participation and the amount of money that each one of them entails. As stated above, the most common method of reselling hosting services gives you limited opportunities and you risk losing your cash if things don't work out. Because of this reason, bigger hosting vendors such as ResellersPanel.com provide different ways of reselling hosting plans without having to buy anything in advance, or to even become involved in the provision of technical and invoicing support. With their web hosting reseller program, the web hosting reseller subscribes for free and names his very own personal retail prices for the web hosting accounts, which are being sold straight from his web storefront. As billing transactions are taken care of by ResellersPanel.com's team, the customer does not have to pay for the hosting service upfront. He's just going to obtain the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price as a commission. The hosting reseller also has the opportunity to sell hosing services like VPS plans, semi-dedicated plans and dedicated server. More or less, his role involves popularizing the web hosting service and offering support to the end users and with web hosting suppliers that do not request upfront taxes and handle the billing and technical support provision, the only responsibility left for the web hosting reseller will be to promote his private brand's online storefront. Another option will be to set up different user accounts on a private virtual web server, or on a dedicated server. With the majority of web hosting providers, you may obtain those 2 hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other web hosting Control Panel, pre-installed on them. That will permit you to create different shared hosting packages and exert total authority over both the clients and the web hosting server itself. Moreover, on a dedicated hosting server, you may create different VPS accounts and sell them to your customers. A single dedicated web hosting server may accommodate thousands of VPS accounts, based on the server's specifications. This will enable you to deliver a larger variety of web hosting services to your clients, which will provide you with more options when promoting your web storefront. Certainly, utilizing a private virtual hosting server or a dedicated hosting web server for hosting reseller aims is much more costly than utilizing a normal hosting reseller account. Because of this, this possibility should be examined only in case the web hosting reseller has sufficient ability and training needed to handle a web server, otherwise it's recommended to either sign up for a regular hosting reseller program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program courtesy of ResellersPanel.com, which demands less commitment from the reseller.
