Reseller Web Hosting
There are plenty of ways of generating profit on the Internet and one of them is to sell the hosting solutions provided by a specific host. This offers limitless options for everybody who wishes to make more cash. There are different kinds of reseller hosting services, based on the reseller's level of responsibility and, of course, on the provider that provides the hosting service. Prior to going into that, let's first check out
What is a reseller web hosting service?
A reseller web hosting solution is a sort of hosting user account, which allows the reseller to set up various sub-accounts that can be offered to different customers. This is typically accomplished by providing the user with access to a main reseller hosting account, through which he can create various hosting accounts availing of the web server hard drive space provided by the reseller package, for which he pays a certain tax. This is much like the shared web hosting service and precisely like it, with most reseller hosting programs, many reseller accounts share one single web server and do not get complete root-level access to the server config files. Such reseller hosting programs are typically not that high-priced. Yet, they do bar the web hosting resellers from delivering other types of hosting solutions beside shared packages.
Various kinds of hosting reseller services
Beside the abovementioned manner of reseller web hosting packages, there are also a few different schemes that work just as fine. Still, they contrast with respect to the levels of participation and the amount of money that each one of them entails. As stated above, the most popular mode of reselling web hosting solutions gives you restricted alternatives and you risk forfeiting your money if things go wrong. Because of this reason, larger hosting suppliers like Resellers Panel provide alternative ways of reselling web hosting accounts without the need to buy anything beforehand, or to even be involved in the provision of technical and invoicing support. With their program, the web hosting reseller signs up free of charge and specifies his own personal retail prices for the hosting plans, which are being offered directly from his online store. Because billing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel's staff, the reseller does not have to pay for the hosting service in advance. He's just going to get the difference between the retail and the wholesale price as a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the possibility to sell hosing services like virtual web hosting server packages, semi-dedicated web server hosting accounts and dedicated hosting servers. More or less, his job entails advertising the web hosting service and offering support to the end clients and with hosting firms that do not require preliminary fees and deal with the invoicing and client support provision, the sole assignment left for the reseller will be to promote his personal brand's online storefront. Another possibility will be to create different accounts on a Virtual Private Server, or on a dedicated web hosting server. With the majority of hosting suppliers, you may receive those 2 web hosting hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another hosting Control Panel, pre-installed on them. That will allow you to create various shared hosting accounts and have absolute control over both the customers and the server itself. Besides, on a dedicated hosting server, you may create separate VPS web server accounts and resell them to your clients. One dedicated hosting web server may store 1000's of private virtual server hosting accounts, based on the web server's configuration. This will permit you to sell a larger array of web hosting solutions to your clients, which will furnish you with more possibilities when popularizing your web storefront. Certainly, utilizing a private virtual server or a dedicated web hosting server for reseller hosting objectives is much more costly than using a standard hosting reseller account. That is why, this opportunity should be considered only in case the reseller has enough knowledge and training required to handle a server, otherwise it's recommended to either register for an ordinary reseller program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program courtesy of ResellersPanel.com, which requires less involvement from the web hosting reseller.
