The Essence of Hosting Reseller

There are many ways of generating money on the Internet and one of them is to resell the hosting solutions supplied by a certain web hosting company. This presents countless possibilities for everyone who would like to generate additional cash. There are various sorts of hosting reseller solutions, depending on the web hosting reseller's degree of involvement and, of course, on the web hosting provider that offers the web hosting service. Before looking into that, let us first discuss

What is a reseller hosting service?

A hosting reseller service is a sort of web hosting account, which permits the reseller to create various subaccounts that can be resold to various clients. This is mostly accomplished by offering the reseller access to a master reseller account, via which he can create various hosting accounts with the web hosting server hard disk storage space included in the reseller plan, for which he pays a certain charge. This is a lot like the shared web hosting solution and exactly like it, with most hosting reseller programs, lots of reseller web hosting accounts share the same server and do not receive complete root-level access to the server configuration files. Such web hosting reseller programs are generally not that high-priced. Still, they do restrain the web hosting resellers from selling other types of web hosting services except shared hosting plans.

Different kinds of web hosting reseller solutions

Beside the aforementioned method of hosting reseller accounts, there are also several other schemes that work just as good. Yet, they contrast with respect to the levels of participation and the budget amount that each of them demands. As mentioned above, the most common mode of selling solutions offers you restricted possibilities and you risk forfeiting your cash if things don't work out. That is the reason why, larger companies like Resellers Panel provide alternative ways of reselling hosting plans without having to purchase anything upfront, or to even deal with the provision of technical and invoicing support. With their web hosting reseller program, the web hosting reseller subscribes free of charge and sets his very own personal retail prices for the hosting accounts, which are being offered directly from his online storefront. Since invoicing transactions are tackled by Resellers Panel's staff, the client does not need to pay for the service upfront. He's simply going to get the difference between the retail and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The hosting reseller also has the option to offer hosting services like private virtual web hosting servers, semi-dedicated web server packages and dedicated web hosting servers. More or less, his job entails promoting the web hosting service and offering support to the end users and with web hosting companies that do not demand preliminary installments and handle the billing and customer support provision, the only duty left for the reseller will be to advertise his personal brand's online storefront. Another alternative will be to set up separate accounts on a virtual private web hosting server, or on a dedicated web hosting server. With most hosts, you may receive those 2 hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another web hosting Control Panel, already installed on them. That will allow you to set up different shared hosting packages and exert total authority over both the customers and the web server itself. Moreover, on a dedicated server, you may create various virtual server web hosting accounts and resell them to your customers. One single dedicated web hosting server may keep thousands of virtual hosting server accounts, depending on the 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 opportunities when advertising your online storefront. Certainly, utilizing a virtual web hosting server or a dedicated server for hosting reseller purposes is much more costly than utilizing a conventional web hosting reseller user account. Because of this reason, this possibility should be contemplated only if the hosting reseller has sufficient knowledge and practice demanded to manage a server, otherwise it's advisable to either sign up for a conventional reseller program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program provided by Resellers Panel, which requires less involvement from the reseller.
