Reseller Hosting

There are a lot of means of gaining money on the Internet and one of them is to resell the hosting solutions furnished by a particular web host. This offers infinite options for everyone who would like to earn additional revenue. There are several types of reseller hosting services, based on the web hosting reseller's level of participation and, of course, on the web hosting distributor that offers the web hosting service. Prior to looking into that, let us first explore

What is a reseller hosting solution?

A reseller web hosting solution is a sort of web hosting account, which allows the user to create separate sub-accounts that can be offered to various clients. This is generally accomplished by furnishing the reseller with access to a main hosting reseller account, through which he can set up various hosting accounts using the server hard drive storage space offered by the reseller package, for which he pays a certain price. This is a lot like the shared web hosting solution and just like it, with the majority of hosting reseller programs, lots of reseller accounts share one and the very same hosting server and are not given full root access to the web server config files. Such reseller web hosting programs are usually not that costly. Still, they do bar the web hosting resellers from delivering other sorts of hosting solutions except shared hosting packages.

Various forms of web hosting reseller solutions

Apart from the aforementioned mode of reseller hosting packages, there are also a few other schemes that work just as fine. Still, they differ with respect to the levels of commitment and the amount of funds that each of them necessitates. As mentioned above, the most popular mode of reselling web hosting services gives you limited opportunities and you risk losing your money if things don't work out. For this reason, larger hosts like ResellersPanel.com provide alternative methods of reselling hosting plans without the need to buy anything beforehand, or to even get involved in the provision of client and billing support. With their reseller hosting program, the reseller signs up for free and fixes his own retail prices for the services, which are being offered straight from his web store. Since billing transactions are taken care of by Resellers Panel's personnel, the client does not need to pay for the service beforehand. He's merely going to get the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The hosting reseller also has the chance to sell hosing solutions like VPS hosting accounts, semi-dedicated hosting server plans and dedicated server packages. More or less, his job involves advertising the web hosting service and offering support to the end customers and with web hosting service providers that do not demand preliminary fees and deal with the billing and customer support provision, the only responsibility left for the reseller will be to advertise his private brand's online store. Another possibility will be to set up separate accounts on a VPS, or on a dedicated hosting server. With most web hosting vendors, you may obtain those 2 web hosting web hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other hosting CP, pre-installed on them. That will enable you to set up various shared hosting accounts and exert absolute authority over both the users and the web server itself. What is more, on a dedicated web hosting server, you may create separate private virtual web server hosting accounts and resell them to your customers. A single dedicated web server may stash 1000's of virtual server web hosting accounts, depending on the web server's specifications. This will permit you to sell a wider array of web hosting solutions to your customers, which will provide you with more options when promoting your online store. By all means, using a virtual hosting server or a dedicated web server for web hosting reseller objectives is much more expensive than utilizing a conventional hosting reseller user account. That is why, this alternative should be considered only if the hosting reseller has sufficient understanding and experience required to handle a server, otherwise it's advisable to either opt for a conventional reseller program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel, which demands less participation from the web hosting reseller.
