Reseller Web Hosting
There are a lot of means of making revenue on the Internet and one of them is to resell the hosting services supplied by some provider. This offers unlimited possibilities for everybody who wishes to make supplementary revenue. There are different kinds of reseller web hosting solutions, based on the reseller's degree of commitment and, of course, on the company that provides the hosting service. Prior to looking into that, let's first analyze
What is a reseller web hosting solution?
A hosting reseller service is a type of hosting account, which allows the reseller to set up separate subaccounts that can be resold to various clients. This is chiefly achieved by offering the reseller access to a master reseller hosting account, via which he can set up various hosting accounts availing of the disk drive space provided by the hosting reseller package, for which he pays a given tax. This is a lot similar to the shared web hosting solution and precisely like it, with most reseller hosting programs, many web hosting reseller accounts share the same web server and do not have full server root access to the server config files. Such web hosting reseller programs are typically not that high-priced. However, they do hinder the resellers from reselling other kinds of hosting solutions apart from shared web hosting plans.
Different types of web hosting reseller solutions
Apart from the already mentioned manner of reseller hosting accounts, there are also a few other ways that work just as good. However, they contrast with respect to the levels of involvement and the amount of cash that each one of them necessitates. As already stated, the most popular mode of selling web hosting solutions gives you restricted possibilities and you risk losing your funds if things go wrong. For this reason, larger hosting companies such as Resellers Panel provide different modes of selling web hosting packages without the need to pay for anything beforehand, or to even be involved in the provision of technical and billing support. With their program, the hosting reseller registers for free and chooses his own personal retail prices for the hosting solutions, which are being sold straight from his web storefront. Because invoicing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel's personnel, the reseller does not need to purchase the hosting service in advance. He's simply going to get the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The hosting reseller also has the chance to provide web hosting solutions like private virtual web server hosting accounts, semi-dedicated hosting server plans and dedicated web hosting server accounts. More or less, his duty comes down to advertising the hosting service and offering support to the end customers and with service providers that do not request preliminary installments and handle the billing and client support provision, the sole responsibility 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 server, or on a dedicated web hosting server. With most web hosting service providers, you may obtain those two hosting hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other hosting Control Panel, pre-installed on them. That will enable you to create various shared hosting accounts and exercise full control over both the users and the hosting server itself. Moreover, on a dedicated hosting server, you may create different private virtual web server accounts and resell them to your customers. One single dedicated hosting web server may hold thousands of virtual server web hosting accounts, depending on the web server's capacity. This will allow you to deliver a bigger variety of services to your customers, which will furnish you with more options when advertising your web store. By all means, using a VPS hosting server or a dedicated web server for reseller hosting aims is much more expensive than having an average reseller web hosting user account. That is why, this opportunity should be examined only if the web hosting reseller has enough knowledge and experience needed to handle a web hosting server, otherwise it's recommendable to either register for an average web hosting reseller program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program offered by Resellers Panel, which demands less participation from the web hosting reseller.
