What is Hosting Reseller?

There are plenty of ways of earning profit on the Internet and one of them is to sell the hosting solutions supplied by some hosting accounts provider. This provides immeasurable opportunities for everybody who wants to generate more revenue. There are various kinds of hosting reseller solutions, depending on the web hosting reseller's degree of participation and, of course, on the web hosting firm that offers the web hosting service. Before going into that, let's first analyze

What is a hosting reseller service?

A hosting reseller solution is a sort of web hosting account, which allows the reseller to set up various subaccounts that can be offered to various customers. This is mostly carried out by supplying the reseller with access to a main hosting reseller account, via which he can create different hosting accounts availing of the web content storage space offered by the hosting reseller plan, for which he pays a certain fee. This is a lot similar to the shared hosting solution and exactly like it, with the majority of hosting reseller programs, numerous reseller web hosting accounts share the very same web server and do not have full server root access to the server configuration files. Such reseller web hosting programs are normally not that expensive. However, they do restrain the web hosting resellers from reselling other sorts of hosting services aside from shared hosting plans.

Various kinds of hosting reseller services

Beside the aforementioned manner of hosting reseller accounts, there are also several different schemes that work just as good. Yet, they vary with respect to the levels of commitment and the amount of money that each of them demands. As stated above, the most common mode of selling hosting solutions offers you restricted alternatives and you risk forfeiting your capital if things go wrong. For this reason, larger hosting distributors like ResellersPanel.com provide alternative methods of selling web hosting plans without having to buy anything upfront, or to even be responsible for the provision of technical and invoicing support. With their hosting reseller program, the web hosting reseller subscribes for free and designates his very own personal retail prices for the hosting packages, which are being offered straight from his web storefront. Because billing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's staff, the customer does not have to buy the service upfront. He's only 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 sell hosing solutions like VPS plans, semi-dedicated plans and dedicated server. More or less, his job comes down to advertising the hosting service and providing support to the end customers and with web hosting distributors that do not require preliminary fees and tackle the invoicing and customer support provision, the only assignment left for the web hosting reseller will be to advertise his private brand's web store. Another option will be to create separate user accounts on a virtual web hosting server, or on a dedicated server. With the majority of web hosts, you may obtain those 2 web hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other web hosting CP, pre-installed on them. That will permit you to create different shared hosting packages and exert full control over both the users and the web hosting server itself. Besides, on a dedicated hosting web server, you may create different private virtual server hosting accounts and resell them to your customers. A single dedicated hosting server may shelter 1000's of private virtual hosting server accounts, depending on the web server's architecture. This will permit you to offer a wider array of services to your clients, which will give you more alternatives when popularizing your online store. Of course, utilizing a virtual private web hosting server or a dedicated server for hosting reseller objectives is much more costly than having an average hosting reseller account. Because of this, this opportunity should be contemplated only in case the web hosting reseller has sufficient ability and experience necessary to administer a server, otherwise it's recommendable to either register for a regular hosting reseller program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program courtesy of ResellersPanel.com, which demands less participation from the hosting reseller.
