How Web Hosting Reseller Works
There are plenty of means of making profit on the Internet and one of them is to sell the hosting solutions furnished by a particular hosting company. This provides countless opportunities for everyone who desires to make more money. There are different sorts of web hosting reseller solutions, based on the hosting reseller's level of involvement and, of course, on the web hosting corporation that offers the web hosting service. Before going into that, let's first explore
What is a web hosting reseller solution?
A web hosting reseller service is a type of web hosting account, which allows the reseller to set up different sub-accounts that can be offered to various customers. This is mainly achieved by granting the reseller access to a main web hosting reseller account, through which he can set up various web hosting accounts using the web server disk drive space included in the web hosting reseller package, for which he pays a given fee. This is much similar to the shared hosting solution and just like it, with most web hosting reseller programs, many reseller web hosting accounts share one single web server and do not get full root access to the server configuration files. Such hosting reseller programs are generally not that costly. Still, they do prevent the resellers from promoting other sorts of hosting services apart from shared web hosting packages.
Various sorts of web hosting reseller services
Aside from the abovementioned way of web hosting reseller packages, there are also several different ways that work just as fine. Yet, they contrast in terms of the degrees of commitment and the amount of cash that each of them presupposes. As already mentioned, the most common mode of selling web hosting solutions gives you limited options and you risk losing your investment if things go wrong. This is the reason why, larger hosting firms like ResellersPanel.com offer different methods of reselling hosting packages without having to purchase anything upfront, or to even take care of the provision of customer and billing support. With their hosting reseller program, the hosting reseller registers free of cost and designates his very own retail prices for the hosting plans, which are being sold straight from his online store. Since billing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel.com's team, the customer does not need to purchase the service beforehand. He's merely going to receive the difference between the retail and the wholesale price as a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the chance to supply web hosting solutions like VPS services, semi-dedicated services and dedicated server. More or less, his role entails popularizing the hosting service and offering support to the end clients and with hosting corporations that do not request preliminary charges and are responsible for the billing and customer support provision, the only task left for the web hosting reseller will be to popularize his private brand's web storefront. Another alternative will be to create different user accounts on a private virtual web hosting server, or on a dedicated hosting server. With most web hosts, you may get those 2 hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other hosting Control Panel, pre-installed on them. That will allow you to set up various shared hosting packages and exercise absolute authority over both the clients and the web server itself. Moreover, on a dedicated hosting web server, you may create different VPS accounts and offer them to your customers. A single dedicated server may hold 1000's of VPS hosting accounts, depending on the web server's configuration. This will enable you to provide a bigger assortment of hosting services to your customers, which will present you with more alternatives when promoting your online store. By all means, utilizing a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated hosting web server for web hosting reseller goals is much more expensive than having a standard web hosting reseller user account. Therefore, this option should be contemplated only if the hosting reseller has sufficient knowledge and experience needed to handle a web server, otherwise it's advisable to either opt for a standard web hosting reseller program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which demands less dedication from the reseller.
