What is Web Hosting Reseller?

There are lots of means of making profit on the web and one of them is to sell the hosting solutions offered by a given web hosting accounts provider. This provides immense options for everybody who desires to generate more cash. There are several sorts of web hosting reseller services, based on the reseller's degree of commitment and, of course, on the web hosting firm that provides the service. Before going into that, let us first discuss

What is a web hosting reseller solution?

A web hosting reseller solution is a sort of web hosting user account, which allows the reseller to create various sub-accounts that can be offered to different clients. This is commonly achieved by supplying the user with access to a main web hosting reseller account, through which he can create different hosting accounts availing of the web hosting server disk space included in the web hosting reseller plan, for which he pays a given charge. This is a lot like the shared web hosting solution and exactly like it, with the majority of web hosting reseller programs, lots of hosting reseller accounts share one and the same web hosting server and are not supplied with full root access to the server configuration files. Such web hosting reseller programs are usually not that expensive. Yet, they do prevent the web hosting resellers from supplying other types of hosting solutions aside from shared packages.

Various kinds of web hosting reseller services

Aside from the already mentioned way of web hosting reseller accounts, there are also a few different ways that work just as good. Still, they differ in terms of the levels of commitment and the amount of resources that each one of them demands. As mentioned above, the most popular method of selling web hosting services offers you limited options and you risk forfeiting your investment if things don't go well. Due to this reason, larger hosting service providers such as ResellersPanel.com offer alternative modes of reselling web hosting packages without the need to purchase anything in advance, or to even cope with the provision of client and billing support. With their program, the web hosting reseller subscribes free of cost and specifies his very own retail prices for the solutions, which are being offered directly from his online store. Because billing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel.com's team, the reseller does not have to purchase the service upfront. He's just going to receive the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the chance to deliver hosing services like VPS plans, semi-dedicated plans and dedicated server. More or less, his role involves popularizing the service and providing support to the end clients and with hosting suppliers that do not demand upfront taxes and handle the invoicing and client support provision, the only task left for the web hosting reseller will be to popularize his private brand's online storefront. Another option will be to set up different accounts on a virtual web hosting server, or on a dedicated hosting web server. With most web hosts, you may receive those 2 web hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different hosting Control Panel, pre-installed on them. That will permit you to create different shared web hosting packages and have absolute authority over both the users and the hosting server itself. Besides, on a dedicated hosting server, you may create separate VPS web hosting server accounts and sell them to your clients. One dedicated web server may host thousands of VPS web server hosting accounts, based on the server's architecture. This will allow you to deliver a more extensive variety of hosting services to your customers, which will present you with more possibilities when advertising your web store. Sure enough, using a virtual web hosting server or a dedicated hosting web server for web hosting reseller purposes is much more expensive than having an ordinary web hosting reseller user account. Due to this reason, this option should be contemplated only on condition that the hosting reseller has sufficient ability and practice required to administer a web server, otherwise it's recommended to either sign up for an average web hosting reseller program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program offered by ResellersPanel.com, which demands less participation from the hosting reseller.
