How Reseller Web Hosting Works

There are plenty of means of earning money on the web and one of them is to resell the web hosting services provided by a specific hosting packages provider. This provides immeasurable options for everyone who wants to gain more money. There are various kinds of reseller web hosting services, depending on the hosting reseller's level of involvement and, of course, on the web hosting company that offers the web hosting service. Prior to looking into that, let us first examine

What is a reseller web hosting service?

A reseller web hosting service is a sort of hosting user account, which permits the user to create separate subaccounts that can be sold to various customers. This is usually carried out by offering the reseller access to a main reseller web hosting account, through which he can set up various web hosting accounts utilizing the web hosting server hard disk space included in the reseller web hosting plan, for which he pays a certain price. This is a lot like the shared hosting solution and exactly like it, with the majority of reseller web hosting programs, many hosting reseller accounts share one and the very same web server and do not have full server root access to the web server config files. Such web hosting reseller programs are usually not that high-priced. Still, they do hinder the hosting resellers from delivering other types of hosting services apart from shared hosting plans.

Different sorts of reseller web hosting solutions

Beside the aforementioned mode of reseller web hosting accounts, there are also a few other ways that work just as fine. Yet, they differ with respect to the levels of commitment and the amount of funds that each one of them demands. As already stated, the most popular method of reselling web hosting solutions gives you restricted opportunities and you risk forfeiting your funds if things don't go well. Due to this reason, larger hosting corporations like ResellersPanel.com provide different modes of reselling hosting plans without the need to pay for anything upfront, or to even take care of the provision of customer and billing support. With their web hosting reseller program, the reseller registers for free and designates his own retail prices for the solutions, which are being offered directly from his web store. Because invoicing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's staff, the customer does not have to buy the hosting service upfront. 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 opportunity to sell web hosting services like VPS hosting packages, semi-dedicated hosting packages and dedicated hosting. More or less, his duty entails advertising the hosting service and providing support to the end customers and with hosting companies that do not require upfront charges and cope with the invoicing and client support provision, the only duty left for the web hosting reseller will be to promote his personal brand's online store. Another alternative will be to create separate user accounts on a virtual private web server, or on a dedicated hosting web server. With the majority of service providers, 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 different shared web hosting accounts and have complete control over both the customers and the web server itself. Moreover, on a dedicated hosting web server, you may set up different private virtual web server accounts and offer them to your customers. One dedicated web hosting server may hold 1000's of virtual hosting server accounts, depending on the server's capacity. This will allow you to deliver a more extensive assortment of hosting solutions to your clients, which will furnish you with more possibilities when popularizing your online store. Sure enough, using a private virtual web server or a dedicated server for reseller web hosting aims is much more expensive than using an average reseller web hosting account. This is the reason why, this alternative should be examined only in case the web hosting reseller has sufficient knowledge and experience required to handle a hosting server, otherwise it's advisable to either opt for a conventional reseller web hosting program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program courtesy of ResellersPanel.com, which demands less commitment from the web hosting reseller.
