Reseller Web Hosting
There are a lot of ways of gaining profit on the World Wide Web and one of them is to resell the hosting solutions offered by a certain web hosting company. This presents limitless possibilities for everybody who desires to make supplementary profit. There are several types of reseller web hosting solutions, depending on the hosting reseller's level of commitment and, of course, on the web hosting company that offers the web hosting service. Prior to going into that, let us first check out
What is a web hosting reseller service?
A reseller web hosting solution is a sort of hosting account, which enables the user to set up various sub-accounts that can be resold to various customers. This is typically achieved by offering the user access to a master reseller account, via which he can set up different hosting accounts with the web space provided by the reseller web hosting package, for which he pays a given tax. This is a lot similar to the shared web hosting solution and precisely like it, with the majority of web hosting reseller programs, multiple web hosting reseller accounts share one hosting server and do not obtain full server root access to the server config files. Such web hosting reseller programs are typically not that high-priced. Still, they do prevent the hosting resellers from reselling other forms of web hosting services apart from shared hosting packages.
Various forms of hosting reseller services
Aside from the abovementioned method of reseller hosting accounts, there are also several different setups that work just as fine. However, they vary in terms of the levels of involvement and the amount of money that each one of them requires. As mentioned above, the most common mode of reselling hosting solutions gives you restricted options and you risk losing your cash if things go wrong. This is why, larger web hosting corporations such as ResellersPanel.com offer alternative methods of selling hosting plans without having to pay for anything beforehand, or to even get involved in the provision of customer and invoicing support. With their program, the hosting reseller signs up free of charge and names his very own personal retail prices for the web hosting packages, which are being offered straight from his online store. Since invoicing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel.com's personnel, the reseller does not need to buy the hosting service in advance. He's only going to receive the difference between the retail and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The hosting reseller also has the possibility to resell web hosting services such as private virtual server web hosting accounts, semi-dedicated web server hosting accounts and dedicated web hosting server accounts. More or less, his role entails promoting the hosting service and providing support to the end clients and with hosting service providers that do not require preliminary deposits and are responsible for the billing and client support provision, the sole task left for the web hosting reseller will be to popularize his personal brand's online storefront. Another alternative will be to set up separate user accounts on a VPS server, or on a dedicated hosting web server. With most web hosting companies, you may get those 2 hosting hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other Control Panel, already installed on them. That will permit you to create various shared web hosting plans and exercise complete authority over both the users and the web hosting server itself. Moreover, on a dedicated web server, you may create different VPS web server accounts and resell them to your customers. One single dedicated hosting server may stash thousands of private virtual web hosting server accounts, depending on the server's capacity. This will enable you to sell a wider array of hosting solutions to your clients, which will offer you more alternatives when popularizing your web store. Of course, using a private virtual hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server for reseller hosting objectives is much more expensive than utilizing an average hosting reseller user account. This is why, this option should be considered only in case the web hosting reseller has sufficient ability and experience demanded to administer a server, otherwise it's advisable to either sign up for a conventional reseller hosting program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program provided by Resellers Panel, which requires less participation from the hosting reseller.
