How Does Reseller Hosting Function?

There are lots of ways of gaining money on the web and one of them is to resell the web hosting solutions supplied by a certain web hosting company. This provides infinite options for everybody who wishes to generate supplementary profit. There are various varieties of reseller web hosting services, based on the web hosting reseller's degree of responsibility and, of course, on the web hosting supplier that offers the service. Before looking into that, let's first check out

What is a web hosting reseller service?

A reseller hosting solution is a kind of hosting account, which allows the reseller to set up different subaccounts that can be offered to different clients. This is chiefly carried out by granting the reseller access to a main reseller hosting account, through which he can create separate hosting accounts utilizing the web hosting server disk drive storage space offered by the reseller plan, for which he pays a given tax. This is a lot like the shared hosting service and exactly like it, with most reseller programs, a lot of reseller accounts share a single hosting server and do not get root-level access to the server config files. Such reseller programs are typically not that high-priced. Yet, they do bar the hosting resellers from furnishing other sorts of web hosting solutions apart from shared packages.

Different forms of reseller hosting services

Apart from the abovementioned manner of hosting reseller accounts, there are also several other schemes that work just as fine. Still, they vary in terms of the levels of commitment and the amount of funds that each one of them presupposes. As stated above, the most common mode of reselling solutions gives you limited possibilities and you risk forfeiting your cash if things don't work out. That's why, larger hosting providers such as ResellersPanel provide different modes of selling web hosting packages without the need to pay for anything beforehand, or to even cope with the provision of customer and invoicing support. With their reseller hosting program, the web hosting reseller registers free of cost and names his very own personal retail prices for the services, which are being offered directly from his online storefront. Because invoicing transactions are taken care of by ResellersPanel's personnel, the user does not have to buy the hosting service upfront. He's just going to obtain the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price as a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the chance to offer web hosting services like private virtual server hosting plans, semi-dedicated web server packages and dedicated web hosting servers. More or less, his job involves advertising the service and providing support to the end users and with hosting service providers that do not require upfront installments and are responsible for the invoicing and customer support provision, the sole task left for the reseller will be to advertise his private brand's online store. Another alternative will be to create separate accounts on a private virtual server, or on a dedicated web server. With the majority of web hosting companies, you may receive those two hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another web hosting CP, already installed on them. That will enable you to create various shared hosting plans and exercise full control over both the clients and the web hosting server itself. What is more, on a dedicated web hosting server, you may create different virtual web hosting server accounts and resell them to your customers. A single dedicated hosting web server may keep thousands of VPS hosting accounts, based on the server's architecture. This will permit you to deliver a larger variety of web hosting solutions to your customers, which will provide you with more possibilities when advertising your online storefront. Sure enough, utilizing a VPS or a dedicated hosting server for reseller web hosting aims is much more expensive than using a regular web hosting reseller account. This is the reason why, this alternative should be examined only if the reseller has sufficient ability and practice demanded to handle a web hosting server, otherwise it's recommendable to either opt for a standard reseller program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel, which requires less dedication from the reseller.
