Web Hosting Reseller

There are lots of ways of earning revenue on the World Wide Web and one of them is to resell the hosting solutions offered by a particular hosting solutions provider. This provides unlimited opportunities for everybody who would like to gain more revenue. There are several varieties of hosting reseller services, depending on the web hosting reseller's degree of commitment and, of course, on the web hosting supplier that offers the web hosting service. Prior to looking into that, let us first explore

What is a reseller hosting solution?

A reseller web hosting solution is a kind of web hosting user account, which permits the user to set up separate sub-accounts that can be resold to various clients. This is mostly achieved by supplying the reseller with access to a main hosting reseller account, through which he can create separate hosting accounts with the hosting server hard disk space included in the reseller plan, for which he pays a given tax. This is much similar to the shared web hosting solution and exactly like it, with the majority of reseller web hosting programs, a lot of reseller web hosting accounts share one and the same web hosting server and do not get full root access to the web server configuration files. Such reseller programs are typically not that high-priced. Still, they do impede the resellers from delivering other sorts of hosting solutions beside shared hosting plans.

Various kinds of reseller hosting solutions

Apart from the aforementioned mode of reseller hosting accounts, there are also a few other setups that work just as fine. However, they contrast with respect to the degrees of participation and the amount of funds that each one of them entails. As mentioned above, the most popular method of selling web hosting services gives you limited options and you risk losing your funds if things go wrong. Due to this reason, larger web hosting distributors like Resellers Panel offer different ways of selling hosting packages without the need to purchase anything beforehand, or to even cope with the provision of customer and billing support. With their reseller web hosting program, the web hosting reseller subscribes for free and defines his own retail prices for the hosting services, which are being offered straight from his web storefront. Because invoicing transactions are taken care of by Resellers Panel's team, the client does not have to buy the service in advance. He's only going to receive the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The hosting reseller also has the chance to provide hosing solutions such as virtual server web hosting packages, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated hosting server packages. More or less, his role involves promoting the service and offering support to the end clients and with web hosts that do not require preliminary deposits and take care of the invoicing and technical support provision, the only assignment left for the hosting reseller will be to advertise his private brand's web storefront. Another alternative will be to set up separate accounts on a VPS, or on a dedicated hosting web server. With most hosts, you may obtain those 2 hosting web hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other hosting Control Panel, pre-installed on them. That will allow you to create different shared web hosting accounts and exert full control over both the customers and the hosting server itself. Furthermore, on a dedicated hosting server, you may create separate VPS hosting server accounts and offer them to your customers. One single dedicated server may stash thousands of VPS server hosting accounts, based on the web server's specifications. This will permit you to sell a more extensive assortment of web hosting services to your customers, which will provide you with more possibilities when promoting your online storefront. By all means, using a private virtual web hosting server or a dedicated server for reseller hosting aims is much more expensive than using a regular reseller web hosting user account. That's why, this alternative should be contemplated only on condition that the hosting reseller has sufficient understanding and experience needed to administer a hosting server, otherwise it's recommendable to either opt for a regular reseller web hosting program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program offered by Resellers Panel, which demands less participation from the hosting reseller.
