Hosting Reseller Revealed

There are many ways of earning revenue on the World Wide Web and one of them is to sell the hosting solutions provided by some hosting distributor. This offers boundless options for everybody who wishes to gain more profit. There are different kinds of hosting reseller solutions, based on the web hosting reseller's level of responsibility and, of course, on the hosting corporation that provides the hosting service. Before looking into that, let's first examine

What is a reseller web hosting service?

A hosting reseller service is a sort of hosting account, which enables the reseller to create different subaccounts that can be sold to different customers. This is mostly accomplished by bestowing the reseller with access to a main reseller web hosting account, via which he can set up different web hosting accounts utilizing the server hard drive storage space offered by the hosting reseller package, for which he pays a given fee. This is a lot similar to the shared hosting service and exactly like it, with the majority of hosting reseller programs, many reseller web hosting accounts share a single server and do not have complete server root access to the web server config files. Such web hosting reseller programs are generally not that costly. Still, they do deter the web hosting resellers from reselling other types of web hosting solutions apart from shared plans.

Various kinds of hosting reseller solutions

Apart from the already mentioned manner of reseller web hosting plans, there are also a few different schemes that work just as good. Yet, they differ with respect to the degrees of commitment and the amount of money that each one of them demands. As already stated, the most popular method of selling solutions gives you restricted options and you risk losing your cash if things don't work out. For that reason, larger web hosting vendors like ResellersPanel offer different modes of selling web hosting packages without having to purchase anything in advance, or to even deal with the provision of client and invoicing support. With their hosting reseller program, the hosting reseller signs up free of charge and selects his own personal retail prices for the web hosting packages, which are being sold directly from his web store. Since invoicing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel's staff, the reseller does not need to purchase the hosting service upfront. He's only going to get the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price as a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the option to offer hosting solutions like virtual web hosting servers, semi-dedicated web hosting servers and dedicated hosting plans. More or less, his role comes down to advertising the web hosting service and offering support to the end clients and with web hosting distributors that do not demand preliminary deposits and are responsible for the invoicing and technical support provision, the only task left for the hosting reseller will be to promote his personal brand's online storefront. Another possibility will be to create separate accounts on a private virtual web server, or on a dedicated hosting server. With most web hosting providers, you may get those two services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other hosting Control Panel, already installed on them. That will permit you to set up different shared hosting plans and have full authority over both the customers and the server itself. In addition, on a dedicated web server, you may create various VPS accounts and resell them to your customers. A single dedicated web server may shelter 1000's of virtual private hosting server accounts, depending on the server's specifications. This will enable you to sell a more extensive assortment of hosting services to your customers, which will present you with more options when popularizing your online store. By all means, using a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated hosting web server for reseller hosting purposes is much more expensive than having an average reseller hosting account. Due to this reason, this alternative should be considered only on condition that the reseller has sufficient ability and practice required to handle a hosting server, otherwise it's recommendable to either sign up for a regular reseller web hosting program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program offered by ResellersPanel, which requires less dedication from the reseller.
