Web Hosting Reseller

There are lots of means of gaining profit on the web and one of them is to sell the hosting solutions provided by some hosting solutions provider. This offers immense opportunities for everybody who wants to generate supplementary cash. There are different varieties of reseller web hosting services, depending on the web hosting reseller's level of responsibility and, of course, on the web hosting corporation that offers the web hosting service. Before going into that, let's first analyze

What is a reseller web hosting solution?

A hosting reseller service is a kind of hosting user account, which enables the user to set up separate sub-accounts that can be resold to different clients. This is chiefly carried out by bestowing the reseller with access to a master hosting reseller account, via which he can create separate hosting accounts availing of the web hosting server hard disk storage space included in the hosting reseller plan, for which he pays a certain fee. This is a lot like the shared web hosting service and just like it, with most web hosting reseller programs, multiple reseller accounts share one single web server and are not given complete root-level access to the server config files. Such hosting reseller programs are normally not that high-priced. However, they do impede the hosting resellers from promoting other kinds of web hosting services beside shared hosting plans.

Various sorts of web hosting reseller services

Aside from the aforementioned manner of web hosting reseller packages, there are also several different schemes that work just as good. Still, they vary in terms of the levels of participation and the amount of money that each one of them necessitates. As mentioned, the most common way of selling web hosting solutions offers you limited alternatives and you risk forfeiting your investment if things don't go well. Because of this, bigger hosting firms like Resellers Panel provide alternative ways of selling hosting accounts without the need to pay for anything upfront, or to even become involved in the provision of technical and invoicing support. With their program, the hosting reseller subscribes free of cost and determines his own retail prices for the web hosting packages, which are being offered directly from his web store. Because billing transactions are handled by Resellers Panel's staff, the reseller does not have to purchase the service in advance. He's only going to get the difference between the retail and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the possibility to sell web hosting services such as virtual server web hosting plans, semi-dedicated web server plans and dedicated hosting accounts. More or less, his role comes down to promoting the hosting service and providing support to the end customers and with hosting firms that do not request upfront charges and tackle the billing and customer support provision, the only responsibility left for the web hosting reseller will be to popularize his personal brand's web storefront. Another option will be to set up different accounts on a private virtual web hosting server, or on a dedicated web server. With the majority of hosting companies, you may receive those two hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other CP, already installed on them. That will enable you to create various shared web hosting plans and have complete authority over both the users and the server itself. Furthermore, on a dedicated server, you may set up different VPS server hosting accounts and resell them to your clients. One dedicated web server may hold thousands of VPS web server hosting accounts, based on the server's architecture. This will enable you to sell a more extensive array of hosting solutions to your customers, which will offer you more alternatives when advertising your online store. By all means, utilizing a virtual private hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server for hosting reseller goals is much more expensive than using a normal reseller hosting user account. This is why, this alternative should be considered only in case the reseller has sufficient knowledge and experience necessary to manage a web server, otherwise it's recommendable to either opt for a standard hosting reseller program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel, which demands less involvement from the web hosting reseller.
