Reseller Web Hosting
There are many means of generating profit on the Internet and one of them is to resell the web hosting services provided by a specific hosting services provider. This provides limitless opportunities for everyone who wishes to generate additional profit. There are various types of hosting reseller services, depending on the hosting reseller's degree of commitment and, of course, on the web hosting firm that provides the service. Prior to going into that, let us first explore
What is a hosting reseller solution?
A reseller web hosting service is a sort of hosting account, which permits the reseller to set up different sub-accounts that can be sold to various clients. This is chiefly achieved by giving the user access to a main hosting reseller account, via which he can create various web hosting accounts utilizing the web space offered by the reseller package, for which he pays a given fee. This is much like the shared hosting solution and precisely like it, with the majority of reseller programs, multiple web hosting reseller accounts share one single server and are not given complete root-level access to the web server config files. Such reseller programs are usually not that costly. Yet, they do impede the web hosting resellers from providing other types of web hosting services except shared packages.
Various types of reseller web hosting solutions
Apart from the aforementioned mode of reseller hosting accounts, there are also several different setups that work just as good. Still, they differ in terms of the levels of participation and the amount of cash that each of them presupposes. As already mentioned, the most common mode of reselling web hosting solutions offers you limited possibilities and you risk losing your cash if things go wrong. Due to this reason, bigger web hosting providers like ResellersPanel offer alternative modes of reselling hosting accounts without having to buy anything in advance, or to even be involved in the provision of client and billing support. With their web hosting reseller program, the web hosting reseller registers free of charge and chooses his own personal retail prices for the web hosting plans, which are being offered straight from his web storefront. Since billing transactions are tackled by Resellers Panel's personnel, the client does not need to buy the web hosting service beforehand. He's merely going to obtain the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price as a commission. The hosting reseller also has the opportunity to deliver hosing solutions like VPS server hosting packages, semi-dedicated web server plans and dedicated web server plans. More or less, his duty entails advertising the web hosting service and offering support to the end customers and with hosting vendors that do not require preliminary deposits and cope with the invoicing and customer support provision, the sole duty left for the reseller will be to popularize his personal brand's online store. Another possibility will be to create different accounts on a virtual private web server, or on a dedicated web hosting server. With most hosting companies, you may get 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 various shared web hosting accounts and exercise full control over both the customers and the web hosting server itself. Besides, on a dedicated web server, you may create separate VPS server web hosting accounts and offer them to your clients. A single dedicated web hosting server may host 1000's of VPS accounts, depending on the server's capacity. This will permit you to deliver a greater variety of hosting services to your customers, which will provide you with more possibilities when popularizing your online store. Of course, using a private virtual hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server for web hosting reseller aims is much more costly than having an average reseller hosting account. Because of this, this opportunity should be considered only if the reseller has sufficient ability and practice required to administer a web server, otherwise it's recommended to either sign up for a conventional hosting reseller program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel, which requests less participation from the web hosting reseller.
