Reseller Hosting Revealed

There are plenty of means of generating money on the World Wide Web and one of them is to resell the hosting services supplied by a specific web hosting vendor. This offers infinite possibilities for everyone who wants to earn additional profit. There are different sorts of reseller hosting solutions, based on the hosting reseller's degree of commitment and, of course, on the web hosting distributor that provides the web hosting service. Prior to looking into that, let's first examine

What is a reseller hosting solution?

A reseller hosting service is a sort of hosting account, which permits the reseller to set up various subaccounts that can be resold to various customers. This is commonly carried out by bestowing the user with access to a main reseller hosting account, through which he can set up various hosting accounts using the hard drive storage space provided by the reseller hosting plan, for which he pays a certain tax. This is much like the shared hosting solution and just like it, with the majority of reseller hosting programs, lots of reseller accounts share one single web server and do not receive complete server root access to the server config files. Such reseller programs are generally not that costly. Still, they do hinder the resellers from reselling other sorts of web hosting services beside shared plans.

Various types of reseller hosting services

Aside from the already mentioned way of reseller hosting plans, there are also several other schemes that work just as fine. Yet, they vary in terms of the levels of commitment and the amount of resources that each of them entails. As already mentioned, the most common method of selling hosting solutions offers you restricted options and you risk forfeiting your money if things don't work out. That is why, bigger web hosting suppliers like ResellersPanel.com provide different ways of selling web hosting plans without the need to pay for anything in advance, or to even be involved in the provision of technical and invoicing support. With their reseller hosting program, the hosting reseller registers free of cost and fixes his own retail prices for the hosting services, which are being sold straight from his web store. Since billing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel.com's personnel, the reseller does not have to purchase the web hosting service upfront. He's merely going to receive the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The reseller also has the possibility to supply hosing solutions like VPS plans, semi-dedicated plans and dedicated server. More or less, his duty entails advertising the web hosting service and providing support to the end clients and with web hosting distributors that do not request upfront taxes and tackle the billing and technical support provision, the sole responsibility left for the hosting reseller will be to advertise his private brand's web storefront. Another option will be to set up different user accounts on a VPS web hosting server, or on a dedicated server. With the majority of web hosting providers, you may obtain those 2 web hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another CP, pre-installed on them. That will permit you to create different shared hosting accounts and exercise complete authority over both the clients and the server itself. Furthermore, on a dedicated web hosting server, you may set up different virtual private web server accounts and resell them to your customers. A single dedicated server may store 1000's of VPS hosting server accounts, depending on the web server's configuration. This will permit you to sell a more extensive variety of services to your customers, which will present you with more opportunities when popularizing your online store. Surely, utilizing a VPS web server or a dedicated hosting server for reseller hosting objectives is much more expensive than having a regular reseller hosting user account. Therefore, this opportunity should be examined only in case the reseller has enough understanding and experience needed to handle a hosting server, otherwise it's recommended to either sign up for a normal reseller hosting program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program courtesy of ResellersPanel.com, which demands less commitment from the reseller.
