Web Hosting Reseller

There are plenty of means of earning money on the World Wide Web and one of them is to sell the hosting services supplied by some web hosting solutions provider. This offers vast opportunities for everyone who wants to make more revenue. There are various sorts of reseller hosting services, depending on the reseller's degree of participation and, of course, on the hosting service provider that offers the service. Prior to going into that, let's first explore

What is a reseller hosting solution?

A web hosting reseller service is a type of hosting account, which permits the reseller to create various sub-accounts that can be offered to various clients. This is chiefly carried out by granting the reseller access to a main reseller account, through which he can set up different web hosting accounts availing of the data storage space included in the reseller plan, for which he pays a certain tax. This is a lot like the shared web hosting solution and precisely like it, with most hosting reseller programs, many reseller accounts share one and the same server and are not given full root-level access to the web server config files. Such reseller web hosting programs are generally not that high-priced. Still, they do impede the hosting resellers from reselling other kinds of web hosting services apart from shared web hosting plans.

Various kinds of web hosting reseller services

Beside the abovementioned manner of reseller hosting accounts, there are also several other setups that work just as good. However, they vary with respect to the levels of commitment and the budget amount that each one of them entails. As mentioned above, the most popular way of reselling web hosting services gives you restricted options and you risk losing your money if things go wrong. Because of this reason, larger providers like ResellersPanel.com provide different ways of reselling web hosting plans without the need to buy anything upfront, or to even take care of the provision of technical and invoicing support. With their hosting reseller program, the hosting reseller registers free of cost and puts his very own personal retail prices for the services, which are being offered straight from his online store. As billing transactions are taken care of by ResellersPanel.com's team, the reseller does not need to buy the hosting service beforehand. He's just going to receive the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The reseller also has the option to provide web hosting services such as virtual server accounts, semi-dedicated web server accounts and dedicated server packages. More or less, his role entails promoting the hosting service and offering support to the end clients and with web hosting service providers that do not request preliminary taxes and handle the billing and technical support provision, the only responsibility left for the hosting reseller will be to popularize his private brand's web storefront. Another possibility will be to set up different user accounts on a private virtual web hosting server, or on a dedicated server. With the majority of service providers, you may obtain those two hosting web hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other CP, already installed on them. That will allow you to create various shared hosting plans and exercise full authority over both the clients and the server itself. In addition, on a dedicated web hosting server, you may set up separate virtual private web server hosting accounts and resell them to your clients. One single dedicated hosting server may shelter thousands of VPS accounts, based on the server's configuration. This will permit you to offer a larger assortment of web hosting services to your customers, which will present you with more alternatives when promoting your web storefront. Surely, using a VPS server or a dedicated server for reseller web hosting objectives is much more costly than having an average reseller web hosting account. This is why, this possibility should be contemplated only on condition that the hosting reseller has enough knowledge and experience demanded to administer a hosting server, otherwise it's recommended to either sign up for a conventional reseller web hosting program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program offered by Resellers Panel, which requests less commitment from the hosting reseller.
