Reseller Hosting Description

There are a lot of ways of gaining profit on the web and one of them is to sell the hosting solutions offered by a specific web hosting services provider. This presents infinite options for everybody who wishes to earn more cash. There are various types of reseller hosting services, depending on the web hosting reseller's degree of participation and, of course, on the web hosting supplier that provides the hosting service. Before looking into that, let's first discuss

What is a reseller hosting service?

A reseller hosting service is a type of hosting user account, which allows the user to create various sub-accounts that can be resold to various clients. This is mainly carried out by offering the reseller access to a main reseller hosting account, via which he can create separate hosting accounts using the hosting server disk storage space included in the reseller hosting package, for which he pays a given fee. This is a lot like the shared web hosting service and just like it, with the majority of reseller hosting programs, lots of web hosting reseller accounts share one and the very same web server and are not given full root-level access to the server configuration files. Such web hosting reseller programs are generally not that expensive. Still, they do hamper the resellers from promoting other kinds of web hosting solutions apart from shared web hosting plans.

Various forms of reseller hosting services

Apart from the already mentioned method of reseller hosting packages, there are also a few different ways that work just as fine. Still, they vary with respect to the degrees of involvement and the amount of funds that each of them presupposes. As already stated, the most popular way of selling web hosting solutions offers you restricted alternatives and you risk forfeiting your investment if things don't work out. This is the reason why, bigger web hosting providers like ResellersPanel.com offer different modes of selling hosting packages without the need to purchase anything beforehand, or to even be involved in the provision of client and invoicing support. With their reseller web hosting program, the web hosting reseller signs up free of cost and fixes his very own personal retail prices for the services, which are being sold straight from his web storefront. Because billing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel.com's team, the client does not have to pay for the service beforehand. He's simply going to obtain the difference between the retail and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The reseller also has the option to provide web hosting solutions like VPS services, semi-dedicated services and dedicated server. More or less, his duty comes down to popularizing the web hosting service and offering support to the end customers and with web hosting firms that do not request preliminary fees and handle the invoicing and client support provision, the only assignment left for the reseller will be to advertise his personal brand's online store. Another alternative will be to create different accounts on a virtual hosting server, or on a dedicated hosting web server. With most hosting providers, you may obtain those two web hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different Control Panel, pre-installed on them. That will allow you to set up different shared hosting packages and exert full control over both the clients and the hosting server itself. Furthermore, on a dedicated web hosting server, you may create different virtual private web server accounts and offer them to your customers. One single dedicated hosting server may store thousands of VPS web server hosting accounts, based on the web server's capacity. This will permit you to deliver a greater array of services to your clients, which will give you more options when advertising your web storefront. Surely, using a virtual hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server for reseller hosting aims is much more expensive than utilizing an ordinary reseller hosting account. For this reason, this possibility should be contemplated only in case the web hosting reseller has sufficient knowledge and training needed to manage a web hosting server, otherwise it's advisable to either sign up for an ordinary reseller hosting program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program courtesy of ResellersPanel.com, which requires less commitment from the reseller.
