How Does Reseller Web Hosting Operate?

There are lots of means of gaining revenue on the Internet and one of them is to resell the shared web hosting solutions offered by a specific web hosting services provider. This offers endless possibilities for everyone who desires to earn extra cash. There are different varieties of reseller web hosting solutions, depending on the hosting reseller's degree of commitment and, of course, on the hosting firm that offers the service. Prior to going into that, let us first analyze

What is a reseller web hosting solution?

A reseller web hosting service is a type of web hosting user account, which enables the reseller to set up different sub-accounts that can be resold to various clients. This is normally achieved by offering the user access to a master reseller web hosting account, through which he can set up various web hosting accounts utilizing the storage space included in the reseller web hosting plan, for which he pays a certain charge. This is a lot similar to the shared hosting solution and precisely like it, with the majority of reseller web hosting programs, many reseller hosting accounts share one and the very same web hosting server and do not receive root access to the server config files. Such hosting reseller programs are typically not that costly. However, they do impede the resellers from distributing other types of web hosting solutions apart from shared hosting packages.

Various forms of reseller web hosting solutions

Beside the aforementioned way of reseller web hosting packages, there are also several different schemes that work just as good. Still, they vary with respect to the degrees of participation and the amount of funds that each of them requires. As already mentioned, the most common mode of selling hosting services gives you restricted opportunities and you risk losing your capital if things don't go well. Because of this reason, larger web hosting vendors such as ResellersPanel.com provide different modes of selling hosting accounts without having to purchase anything in advance, or to even be involved in the provision of technical and invoicing support. With their web hosting reseller program, the web hosting reseller signs up for free and names his own personal retail prices for the hosting plans, which are being sold directly from his web storefront. As invoicing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel.com's personnel, the user does not have to buy the service upfront. 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 chance to offer hosing solutions like VPS web hosting, semi-dedicated server web hosting and dedicated server web hosting. More or less, his role comes down to advertising the hosting service and providing support to the end customers and with web hosting firms that do not request preliminary payments and deal with the invoicing and technical support provision, the only duty left for the hosting reseller will be to promote his private brand's web store. Another option will be to create separate user accounts on a private virtual web server, or on a dedicated hosting web server. With most providers, you may receive those two web hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other Control Panel, already installed on them. That will allow you to set up different shared web hosting accounts and exert full control over both the customers and the server itself. What is more, on a dedicated web hosting server, you may create various virtual web hosting server accounts and offer them to your customers. One single dedicated hosting server may keep thousands of private virtual server hosting accounts, based on the server's configuration. This will allow you to deliver a larger assortment of web hosting solutions to your customers, which will furnish you with more options when promoting your web store. Surely, utilizing a VPS hosting server or a dedicated hosting web server for reseller web hosting aims is much more costly than utilizing a regular reseller web hosting account. For that reason, this alternative should be considered only if the web hosting reseller has sufficient ability and practice required to administer a server, otherwise it's recommended to either register for a conventional reseller web hosting program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program offered by ResellersPanel.com, which requires less commitment from the reseller.
