What is Web Hosting Reseller?

There are lots of ways of making profit on the Internet and one of them is to sell the hosting solutions supplied by some company. This offers infinite opportunities for everybody who wants to make additional money. There are various kinds of web hosting reseller services, based on the reseller's level of involvement and, of course, on the hosting service provider that offers the service. Before going into that, let us first explore

What is a web hosting reseller service?

A web hosting reseller service is a type of web hosting user account, which allows the reseller to set up separate sub-accounts that can be sold to different clients. This is typically accomplished by giving the reseller access to a master web hosting reseller account, via which he can set up separate web hosting accounts with the web server disk drive storage space provided by the web hosting reseller package, for which he pays a given price. This is a lot like the shared web hosting service and just like it, with the majority of web hosting reseller programs, lots of hosting reseller accounts share the very same hosting server and do not receive full root access to the server config files. Such hosting reseller programs are usually not that costly. Yet, they do deter the resellers from providing other forms of hosting solutions aside from shared packages.

Different forms of web hosting reseller solutions

Aside from the already mentioned method of web hosting reseller packages, there are also several different ways that work just as fine. Still, they contrast with respect to the degrees of participation and the amount of money that each one of them demands. As already stated, the most common method of selling hosting solutions offers you restricted possibilities and you risk losing your funds if things don't work out. That is the reason why, bigger hosting companies like ResellersPanel.com offer alternative methods of selling web hosting packages without the need to pay for anything in advance, or to even get involved in the provision of customer and invoicing support. With their program, the reseller registers for free and fixes his very own personal retail prices for the web hosting solutions, which are being sold straight from his online store. As invoicing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's staff, the client does not have to pay for the web hosting service in advance. He's merely 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 offer hosing solutions such as VPS plans, semi-dedicated plans and dedicated server. More or less, his job comes down to popularizing the service and offering support to the end clients and with web hosts that do not demand preliminary charges and take care of the invoicing and customer support provision, the sole task left for the hosting reseller will be to popularize his private brand's web store. Another option will be to create different user accounts on a private virtual web hosting server, or on a dedicated web server. With the majority of web hosting service providers, you may receive those 2 hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another Control Panel, already installed on them. That will allow you to set up various shared hosting plans and exert full control over both the clients and the hosting server itself. Moreover, on a dedicated hosting web server, you may set up separate virtual hosting server accounts and sell them to your clients. One dedicated web server may stash 1000's of private virtual server accounts, depending on the web server's architecture. This will enable you to sell a bigger variety of hosting services to your customers, which will provide you with more opportunities when advertising your online storefront. Certainly, using a virtual web hosting server or a dedicated web server for web hosting reseller aims is much more expensive than utilizing an ordinary web hosting reseller user account. Thus, this option should be considered only in case the reseller has enough ability and practice needed to administer a hosting server, otherwise it's recommendable to either opt for an average web hosting reseller program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which demands less dedication from the reseller.
