Hosting Reseller Revealed

There are many ways of making revenue online and one of them is to resell the shared web hosting solutions provided by a particular web hosting plans provider. This offers limitless possibilities for everyone who wants to gain more profit. There are various sorts of hosting reseller services, based on the web hosting reseller's degree of commitment and, of course, on the web host that provides the hosting service. Before looking into that, let's first discuss

What is a hosting reseller solution?

A hosting reseller solution is a kind of hosting user account, which enables the reseller to create different sub-accounts that can be resold to various clients. This is usually achieved by granting the user access to a main hosting reseller account, through which he can create different web hosting accounts utilizing the server hard disk storage space included in the hosting reseller package, for which he pays a certain fee. This is much similar to the shared web hosting service and precisely like it, with the majority of hosting reseller programs, lots of reseller web hosting accounts share a single web server and do not get full root access to the server configuration files. Such hosting reseller programs are normally not that expensive. However, they do restrain the web hosting resellers from distributing other types of hosting solutions apart from shared hosting plans.

Various sorts of hosting reseller solutions

Apart from the already mentioned method of hosting reseller accounts, there are also a few different setups that work just as good. Yet, they differ in terms of the levels of involvement and the amount of resources that each one of them demands. As already stated, the most common mode of selling hosting solutions offers you limited alternatives and you risk losing your investment if things go wrong. That's why, larger hosting vendors such as ResellersPanel.com offer alternative ways of reselling hosting accounts without the need to pay for anything upfront, or to even be responsible for the provision of technical and billing support. With their reseller hosting program, the reseller registers free of charge and specifies his very own personal retail prices for the hosting solutions, which are being offered directly from his web store. Because billing transactions are taken care of by ResellersPanel.com's team, the reseller does not need to purchase the hosting service upfront. He's just going to receive the difference between the retail and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The hosting reseller also has the opportunity to deliver web hosting services such as VPS web hosting, semi-dedicated server web hosting and dedicated server web hosting. More or less, his duty comes down to popularizing the hosting service and offering support to the end users and with service providers that do not demand upfront payments and are responsible for the billing and customer support provision, the only duty left for the hosting reseller will be to popularize his personal brand's online storefront. Another alternative will be to create different accounts on a VPS web server, or on a dedicated hosting web server. With the majority of hosting suppliers, you may receive those two hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different Control Panel, pre-installed on them. That will allow you to set up various shared hosting accounts and exert absolute authority over both the clients and the hosting server itself. Besides, on a dedicated web server, you may create separate private virtual server hosting accounts and offer them to your clients. A single dedicated server may host 1000's of private virtual hosting server accounts, depending on the web server's configuration. This will permit you to deliver a bigger variety of web hosting services to your customers, which will furnish you with more opportunities when advertising your web store. Surely, utilizing a VPS server or a dedicated web hosting server for hosting reseller aims is much more costly than using an ordinary hosting reseller user account. That is the reason why, this opportunity should be considered only in case the web hosting reseller has sufficient understanding and practice required to manage a web server, otherwise it's advisable to either sign up for an average hosting reseller program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program courtesy of ResellersPanel.com, which requires less participation from the reseller.
