What is Reseller Web Hosting?

There are many ways of earning cash on the web and one of them is to resell the web hosting solutions offered by a certain web hosting packages provider. This presents immeasurable options for everybody who wants to earn additional profit. There are several kinds of reseller web hosting services, based on the hosting reseller's level of commitment and, of course, on the web hosting distributor that offers the service. Before looking into that, let's first examine

What is a reseller web hosting solution?

A reseller web hosting solution is a kind of web hosting account, which enables the reseller to set up different subaccounts that can be sold to various clients. This is chiefly accomplished by offering the reseller access to a master reseller web hosting account, through which he can set up separate hosting accounts with the web server hard drive space included in the reseller web hosting plan, for which he pays a given charge. This is a lot like the shared web hosting solution and exactly like it, with the majority of reseller web hosting programs, numerous web hosting reseller accounts share one single web server and are not supplied with root access to the server config files. Such reseller programs are generally not that high-priced. Still, they do prevent the resellers from providing other forms of web hosting services apart from shared web hosting packages.

Different kinds of reseller web hosting services

Beside the already mentioned way of reseller web hosting plans, there are also a few different setups that work just as fine. However, they differ with respect to the levels of involvement and the amount of money that each of them requires. As already mentioned, the most popular mode of reselling web hosting services offers you restricted alternatives and you risk losing your investment if things don't go well. For that reason, larger companies such as ResellersPanel.com provide alternative modes of reselling web hosting packages without having to purchase anything upfront, or to even deal with the provision of customer and invoicing support. With their reseller web hosting program, the reseller signs up free of charge and sets his very own personal retail prices for the web hosting packages, which are being sold straight from his online store. As billing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel.com's team, the customer does not have to purchase the service in advance. 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 option to sell web hosting services such as VPS hosting services, semi-dedicated hosting services and dedicated hosting. More or less, his job comes down to advertising the web hosting service and offering support to the end customers and with web hosting providers that do not request upfront installments and take care of the billing and client support provision, the only assignment left for the web hosting reseller will be to popularize his personal brand's online storefront. Another option will be to create different user accounts on a VPS web hosting server, or on a dedicated server. With the majority of hosting distributors, you may get those two hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different web hosting CP, pre-installed on them. That will permit you to set up different shared web hosting packages and exert complete control over both the customers and the web server itself. In addition, on a dedicated hosting server, you may set up different virtual server accounts and sell them to your clients. A single dedicated server may host 1000's of VPS web server accounts, depending on the web server's configuration. This will permit you to offer a wider array of web hosting solutions to your clients, which will furnish you with more opportunities when advertising your online storefront. Of course, using a virtual private web hosting server or a dedicated hosting web server for reseller web hosting objectives is much more costly than utilizing an ordinary reseller web hosting user account. That is the reason why, this alternative should be examined only if the web hosting reseller has sufficient ability and training necessary to manage a web hosting server, otherwise it's recommendable to either sign up for a standard reseller web hosting program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which requires less commitment from the hosting reseller.
