What Precisely is Reseller Web Hosting?

There are many ways of generating cash on the Internet and one of them is to resell the website hosting services offered by a specific hosting company. This presents countless possibilities for everybody who wishes to earn additional cash. There are various kinds of reseller web hosting solutions, depending on the web hosting reseller's degree of participation and, of course, on the web hosting service provider that provides the web hosting service. Prior to going into that, let us first examine

What is a reseller web hosting service?

A reseller web hosting service is a sort of web hosting user account, which permits the user to create different sub-accounts that can be sold to various customers. This is usually carried out by supplying the user with access to a master reseller web hosting account, through which he can set up different hosting accounts with the web hosting server disk space provided by the reseller web hosting package, 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 reseller web hosting programs, numerous reseller accounts share one and the same web hosting server and do not have complete root-level access to the web server configuration files. Such reseller hosting programs are generally not that costly. Still, they do prevent the hosting resellers from selling other kinds of hosting solutions apart from shared web hosting plans.

Different varieties of reseller web hosting solutions

Beside the already mentioned method of reseller web hosting plans, there are also several other setups that work just as fine. Yet, they contrast with respect to the levels of involvement and the amount of cash that each of them demands. As mentioned, the most popular mode of selling hosting services gives you limited opportunities and you risk forfeiting your cash if things don't work out. For this reason, bigger web hosting vendors like ResellersPanel.com provide different methods of selling hosting packages without the need to buy anything in advance, or to even take care of the provision of customer and billing support. With their web hosting reseller program, the web hosting reseller signs up free of charge and defines his own personal retail prices for the services, which are being sold directly from his web store. Since invoicing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel.com's personnel, the reseller does not need to pay for the service upfront. He's just going to obtain the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The reseller also has the chance to distribute web hosting services like VPS web hosting, semi-dedicated web hosting and dedicated web hosting. More or less, his duty comes down to promoting the service and providing support to the end customers and with web hosting corporations that do not request upfront taxes and handle the billing and client support provision, the only responsibility left for the reseller will be to promote his personal brand's web store. Another alternative will be to set up separate user accounts on a virtual server, or on a dedicated hosting server. With most hosts, you may obtain those two hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other hosting Control Panel, pre-installed on them. That will allow you to create various shared web hosting plans and exert total authority over both the users and the server itself. Also, on a dedicated server, you may create various private virtual hosting server accounts and sell them to your clients. A single dedicated server may keep 1000's of virtual web hosting server accounts, based on the server's architecture. This will allow you to offer a larger array of web hosting solutions to your customers, which will provide you with more possibilities when promoting your online store. Certainly, utilizing a VPS server or a dedicated server for reseller web hosting objectives is much more costly than using an ordinary reseller web hosting account. For this reason, this possibility should be examined only if the reseller has sufficient understanding and experience demanded to administer a hosting server, otherwise it's advisable to either opt for an ordinary reseller web hosting program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which requests less participation from the hosting reseller.
