What Exactly is Reseller Web Hosting?

There are a lot of means of earning money on the Internet and one of them is to sell the hosting solutions offered by a certain provider. This offers vast possibilities for everyone who wants to gain more cash. There are different sorts of reseller web hosting services, based on the web hosting reseller's degree of participation and, of course, on the host that offers the service. Prior to going into that, let's first check out

What is a reseller web hosting service?

A reseller web hosting solution is a type of web hosting account, which allows the user to set up separate sub-accounts that can be offered to various customers. This is typically achieved by supplying the user with access to a main reseller web hosting account, through which he can create different hosting accounts utilizing the web hosting server hard disk storage space offered by the reseller web hosting package, for which he pays a certain fee. This is much similar to the shared web hosting service and exactly like it, with the majority of reseller web hosting programs, a lot of reseller hosting accounts share one hosting server and are not granted root access to the web server configuration files. Such web hosting reseller programs are normally not that costly. Yet, they do bar the hosting resellers from providing other types of hosting services aside from shared hosting plans.

Various sorts of reseller web hosting solutions

Aside from the already mentioned method of reseller web hosting accounts, there are also a few other schemes that work just as good. Still, they differ with respect to the levels of commitment and the amount of cash that each of them presupposes. As mentioned, the most popular mode of selling hosting services gives you restricted alternatives and you risk losing your investment if things go wrong. Due to this reason, bigger hosting service providers such as ResellersPanel.com offer different modes of reselling hosting accounts without having to pay for anything upfront, or to even get involved in the provision of technical and billing support. With their program, the web hosting reseller registers free of cost and selects his very own retail prices for the web hosting packages, which are being offered directly from his online storefront. Because billing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's staff, the user does not have to buy the web hosting service in advance. He's only going to obtain the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price as a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the opportunity to deliver hosing solutions like VPS services, semi-dedicated services and dedicated server. More or less, his duty entails promoting the web hosting service and providing support to the end customers and with web hosting companies that do not request preliminary payments and take care of the billing and customer support provision, the only assignment left for the reseller will be to promote his private brand's online storefront. Another possibility will be to create different accounts on a private virtual server, or on a dedicated hosting server. With the majority of web hosting distributors, you may get those two hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another web hosting CP, already installed on them. That will enable you to set up various shared hosting packages and have full control over both the customers and the web hosting server itself. Moreover, on a dedicated web server, you may set up separate virtual server web hosting accounts and sell them to your customers. One single dedicated server may shelter 1000's of Virtual Private Server hosting accounts, based on the web server's configuration. This will permit you to provide a bigger assortment of hosting services to your customers, which will provide you with more alternatives when promoting your online storefront. Sure enough, using a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server for reseller web hosting objectives is much more expensive than utilizing a conventional reseller web hosting account. Because of this, this option should be considered only in case the web hosting reseller has sufficient understanding and practice necessary to handle a server, otherwise it's recommendable to either sign up for a conventional reseller web hosting program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program courtesy of ResellersPanel.com, which demands less dedication from the reseller.
