How Reseller Hosting Functions

There are plenty of ways of generating cash on the World Wide Web and one of them is to resell the hosting solutions furnished by a specific web hosting supplier. This provides immeasurable options for everyone who would like to gain supplementary cash. There are different sorts of reseller hosting services, based on the reseller's level of involvement and, of course, on the web hosting company that provides the hosting service. Before going into that, let's first analyze

What is a reseller hosting solution?

A reseller hosting service is a kind of web hosting user account, which allows the reseller to set up separate subaccounts that can be resold to various customers. This is mainly achieved by providing the reseller with access to a main reseller hosting account, via which he can set up separate web hosting accounts utilizing the web hosting server hard drive storage space included in the reseller hosting package, for which he pays a given price. This is much similar to the shared hosting service and just like it, with the majority of reseller hosting programs, many reseller hosting accounts share one single hosting server and do not obtain root access to the server configuration files. Such hosting reseller programs are typically not that expensive. Yet, they do hinder the web hosting resellers from supplying other types of web hosting services aside from shared plans.

Different kinds of reseller hosting solutions

Beside the aforementioned method of reseller hosting packages, there are also a few other ways that work just as fine. However, they contrast in terms of the degrees of participation and the amount of cash that each of them entails. As mentioned, the most popular mode of selling hosting services gives you restricted options and you risk forfeiting your funds if things go wrong. Due to this reason, larger companies like ResellersPanel.com offer different methods of reselling hosting plans without the need to pay for anything beforehand, or to even be responsible for the provision of client and billing support. With their web hosting reseller program, the reseller signs up free of cost and selects his own retail prices for the web hosting accounts, which are being offered directly from his web store. Since invoicing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's personnel, the reseller does not have to purchase the hosting service beforehand. He's just going to receive the difference between the retail and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The hosting reseller also has the option to sell web hosting services like VPS services, semi-dedicated services and dedicated server. More or less, his job entails advertising the service and offering support to the end clients and with hosting distributors that do not demand preliminary deposits and tackle the invoicing and technical support provision, the only assignment left for the reseller will be to advertise his personal brand's online store. Another alternative will be to set up separate user accounts on a private virtual web hosting server, or on a dedicated web server. With most web hosting companies, you may receive those two hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different hosting CP, pre-installed on them. That will allow you to set up different shared web hosting packages and exercise full authority over both the clients and the web hosting server itself. What is more, on a dedicated hosting web server, you may create various VPS hosting accounts and offer them to your customers. A single dedicated server may accommodate 1000's of VPS web hosting accounts, depending on the web server's configuration. This will allow you to deliver a greater variety of services to your clients, which will offer you more opportunities when popularizing your online storefront. Sure enough, using a private virtual web hosting server or a dedicated web server for reseller hosting aims is much more costly than using a standard reseller hosting user account. For that reason, this possibility should be contemplated only in case the web hosting reseller has enough knowledge and practice demanded to manage a web server, otherwise it's recommended to either sign up for a standard reseller hosting program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program offered by ResellersPanel.com, which requests less commitment from the web hosting reseller.
