Reseller Hosting

There are lots of ways of making money on the Internet and one of them is to sell the hosting solutions supplied by a given web hosting solutions provider. This offers unlimited possibilities for everyone who wants to generate more money. There are several kinds of reseller hosting services, depending on the reseller's level of involvement and, of course, on the hosting corporation that offers the service. Prior to looking into that, let's first check out

What is a reseller hosting solution?

A reseller hosting service is a kind of hosting user account, which permits the user to create various subaccounts that can be offered to different customers. This is mostly achieved by furnishing the user with access to a main reseller account, through which he can set up separate hosting accounts with the web storage space offered by the reseller hosting plan, for which he pays a certain tax. This is much like the shared web hosting service and just like it, with the majority of reseller web hosting programs, many hosting reseller accounts share a single web server and are not granted root-level access to the web server configuration files. Such reseller programs are generally not that costly. However, they do hinder the resellers from promoting other kinds of web hosting solutions beside shared hosting plans.

Various forms of reseller hosting services

Beside the already mentioned method of reseller hosting packages, there are also several different schemes that work just as fine. Still, they differ in terms of the levels of participation and the budget amount that each one of them requires. As mentioned above, the most common mode of selling web hosting solutions gives you restricted alternatives and you risk forfeiting your funds if things don't go well. Due to this reason, larger web hosts like ResellersPanel provide different modes of reselling hosting plans without having to pay for anything upfront, or to even deal with the provision of client and billing support. With their reseller web hosting program, the web hosting reseller signs up free of cost and defines his very own retail prices for the hosting services, which are being sold straight from his online store. Because invoicing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel's staff, the reseller does not have to buy the hosting service beforehand. He's simply going to get the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the chance to supply hosing services such as private virtual web server hosting accounts, semi-dedicated web server hosting accounts and dedicated web hosting server packages. More or less, his duty entails promoting the service and providing support to the end clients and with web hosting vendors that do not request preliminary deposits and cope with the invoicing and client support provision, the sole task left for the web hosting reseller will be to advertise his personal brand's online store. Another possibility will be to create separate user accounts on a private virtual hosting server, or on a dedicated hosting web server. With the majority of providers, you may obtain those 2 hosting hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other hosting Control Panel, already installed on them. That will enable you to set up various shared web hosting plans and have complete authority over both the users and the web server itself. Besides, on a dedicated hosting web server, you may create different virtual web server hosting accounts and sell them to your customers. One dedicated web server may stash thousands of virtual server accounts, depending on the web server's specifications. This will permit you to offer a more extensive variety of hosting services to your customers, which will give you more opportunities when advertising your web storefront. Certainly, utilizing a private virtual web hosting server or a dedicated hosting server for reseller hosting aims is much more expensive than utilizing a regular hosting reseller user account. Because of this, this opportunity should be considered only in case the web hosting reseller has enough knowledge and experience demanded to manage a web hosting server, otherwise it's recommended to either sign up for an ordinary hosting reseller program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program offered by Resellers Panel, which demands less dedication from the reseller.
