How Reseller Web Hosting Works
There are lots of means of gaining profit on the World Wide Web and one of them is to sell the shared hosting solutions provided by a certain web hosting packages provider. This offers countless options for everybody who desires to generate more profit. There are several sorts of reseller web hosting solutions, depending on the web hosting reseller's degree of participation and, of course, on the service provider that offers the hosting service. Before going into that, let's first explore
What is a reseller web hosting service?
A reseller web hosting solution is a kind of hosting user account, which permits the user to set up separate sub-accounts that can be resold to various clients. This is mostly carried out by supplying the user with access to a main reseller web hosting account, via which he can create different hosting accounts with the disk storage space included in the reseller web hosting plan, for which he pays a given charge. This is much similar to the shared hosting solution and precisely like it, with most reseller web hosting programs, a lot of reseller hosting accounts share the same web hosting server and are not granted full server root access to the server config files. Such web hosting reseller programs are typically not that high-priced. Yet, they do hamper the hosting resellers from supplying other forms of hosting solutions except shared web hosting packages.
Different sorts of reseller web hosting services
Beside the already mentioned way of reseller web hosting packages, there are also several other ways that work just as fine. However, they differ with respect to the levels of participation and the amount of money that each one of them demands. As mentioned, the most common way of selling web hosting solutions gives you limited opportunities and you risk losing your capital if things go wrong. This is the reason why, bigger service providers such as ResellersPanel.com offer alternative methods of reselling web hosting plans without the need to buy anything upfront, or to even be responsible for the provision of client and billing support. With their hosting reseller program, the web hosting reseller registers free of charge and selects his own retail prices for the hosting packages, which are being sold straight from his web storefront. Because billing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel.com's staff, the user does not have to pay for the service in advance. He's simply going to obtain the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The hosting reseller also has the chance to provide hosing services such as virtual private servers, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated server. More or less, his job involves popularizing the service and providing support to the end clients and with hosting vendors that do not require preliminary fees and take care of the invoicing and customer support provision, the sole duty left for the hosting reseller will be to promote his private brand's web storefront. Another possibility will be to create separate accounts on a virtual server, or on a dedicated web server. With most hosting suppliers, you may get those two web hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different Control Panel, already installed on them. That will allow you to set up various shared web hosting packages and exercise full control over both the clients and the server itself. In addition, on a dedicated web hosting server, you may set up separate Virtual Private Server accounts and resell them to your customers. One single dedicated server may host 1000's of virtual server hosting accounts, depending on the web server's architecture. This will permit you to sell a wider array of services to your clients, which will give you more opportunities when popularizing your web storefront. By all means, using a virtual server or a dedicated server for reseller web hosting aims is much more expensive than utilizing a conventional reseller web hosting user account. This is why, this option should be considered only on condition that the web hosting reseller has enough ability and training required to administer a hosting server, otherwise it's recommendable to either sign up for an average reseller web hosting program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program offered by ResellersPanel.com, which demands less involvement from the reseller.
