Description of Web Hosting Reseller
There are lots of ways of making profit online and one of them is to sell the hosting services furnished by a specific service provider. This offers vast possibilities for everybody who would like to make more money. There are several sorts of web hosting reseller services, based on the hosting reseller's degree of participation and, of course, on the hosting distributor that provides the service. Prior to looking into that, let us first analyze
What is a web hosting reseller solution?
A web hosting reseller service is a sort of web hosting account, which enables the user to create various sub-accounts that can be offered to various customers. This is chiefly achieved by providing the reseller with access to a master web hosting reseller account, through which he can set up different hosting accounts with the server space offered by the web hosting reseller package, for which he pays a certain charge. This is much like the shared web hosting solution and exactly like it, with most web hosting reseller programs, many reseller hosting accounts share the same web hosting server and do not receive complete root-level access to the server configuration files. Such reseller programs are generally not that costly. However, they do deter the resellers from providing other kinds of web hosting solutions beside shared web hosting packages.
Different types of web hosting reseller solutions
Beside the abovementioned way of web hosting reseller plans, there are also several different setups that work just as good. Yet, they vary in terms of the levels of involvement and the amount of money that each of them requires. As already stated, the most popular way of selling hosting solutions offers you restricted possibilities and you risk losing your capital if things don't go well. For this reason, bigger hosting corporations like ResellersPanel.com offer alternative modes of reselling hosting packages without the need to buy anything in advance, or to even deal with the provision of client and billing support. With their hosting reseller program, the web hosting reseller registers free of charge and selects his very own retail prices for the solutions, which are being sold directly from his online storefront. Since invoicing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel.com's team, the reseller does not have to pay for the hosting service upfront. He's only going to obtain the difference between the retail and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The hosting reseller also has the opportunity to deliver web hosting services like VPS packages, semi-dedicated packages and dedicated package. More or less, his job comes down to popularizing the service and offering support to the end clients and with web hosting corporations that do not demand preliminary taxes and handle the billing and technical support provision, the only assignment left for the web hosting reseller will be to popularize his private brand's online storefront. Another alternative will be to set up different accounts on a virtual private web hosting server, or on a dedicated web server. With the majority of hosting providers, you may receive those 2 web hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other hosting CP, already installed on them. That will enable you to set up different shared hosting accounts and have complete authority over both the customers and the hosting server itself. Furthermore, on a dedicated hosting server, you may create various VPS hosting server accounts and resell them to your customers. One dedicated hosting server may store 1000's of VPS hosting accounts, based on the web server's specifications. This will enable you to offer a greater variety of web hosting solutions to your clients, which will give you more alternatives when advertising your online storefront. By all means, using a virtual private web server or a dedicated web hosting server for web hosting reseller objectives is much more costly than utilizing an ordinary web hosting reseller account. This is why, this possibility should be examined only if the hosting reseller has enough knowledge and practice demanded to handle a hosting server, otherwise it's recommended to either sign up for an average web hosting reseller program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program courtesy of ResellersPanel.com, which requires less involvement from the hosting reseller.
