What is Web Hosting Reseller?

There are lots of means of making revenue on the World Wide Web and one of them is to resell the shared hosting services offered by a certain hosting packages provider. This provides countless possibilities for everyone who desires to make supplementary revenue. There are several sorts of web hosting reseller services, based on the reseller's degree of involvement and, of course, on the service provider that provides the hosting service. Before looking into that, let us first discuss

What is a web hosting reseller solution?

A web hosting reseller service is a sort of hosting account, which enables the user to create various sub-accounts that can be sold to various clients. This is chiefly accomplished by bestowing the user with access to a master web hosting reseller account, via which he can create different web hosting accounts availing of the hard disk storage space provided by the web hosting reseller plan, for which he pays a certain charge. This is much similar to the shared hosting solution and exactly like it, with the majority of web hosting reseller programs, numerous reseller accounts share one and the same web hosting server and do not get complete root-level access to the web server config files. Such hosting reseller programs are usually not that expensive. Still, they do prevent the hosting resellers from providing other kinds of web hosting solutions apart from shared hosting packages.

Different kinds of web hosting reseller services

Apart from the abovementioned manner of web hosting reseller packages, there are also several other schemes that work just as fine. Yet, they vary in terms of the levels of participation and the amount of resources that each one of them involves. As already stated, the most popular mode of reselling web hosting solutions offers you restricted alternatives and you risk forfeiting your investment if things don't work out. For this reason, bigger web hosting providers like ResellersPanel.com offer different modes of selling web hosting packages without the need to buy anything beforehand, or to even get involved in the provision of technical and invoicing support. With their reseller web hosting program, the web hosting reseller subscribes free of charge and designates his own personal retail prices for the web hosting accounts, which are being offered directly from his web storefront. Since billing transactions are taken care of by ResellersPanel.com's personnel, the client does not have to purchase the web hosting service beforehand. He's only going to receive the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The reseller also has the option to supply web hosting solutions like virtual private servers, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated server. More or less, his duty entails promoting the hosting service and offering support to the end customers and with hosting companies that do not demand preliminary fees and handle the billing and customer support provision, the sole task left for the hosting reseller will be to popularize his personal brand's online store. Another alternative will be to set up different user accounts on a private virtual hosting server, or on a dedicated web hosting server. With most providers, you may receive those 2 hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another CP, pre-installed on them. That will enable you to create various shared web hosting plans and have total control over both the clients and the server itself. Besides, on a dedicated hosting web server, you may create separate VPS web hosting accounts and resell them to your customers. One dedicated web server may accommodate 1000's of virtual server web hosting accounts, based on the server's architecture. This will permit you to provide a greater array of hosting services to your clients, which will present you with more possibilities when popularizing your web storefront. Of course, using a VPS hosting server or a dedicated web server for web hosting reseller goals is much more costly than using an average web hosting reseller account. This is the reason why, this alternative should be examined only if the hosting reseller has enough ability and training demanded to administer a server, otherwise it's advisable to either sign up for a regular web hosting reseller program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program courtesy of ResellersPanel.com, which requests less involvement from the web hosting reseller.
