Reseller Hosting

There are a lot of means of gaining cash on the World Wide Web and one of them is to resell the hosting solutions furnished by a given hosting plans provider. This offers boundless possibilities for everybody who would like to generate extra cash. There are various varieties of reseller hosting services, depending on the reseller's level of commitment and, of course, on the web hosting service provider that provides the service. Before going into that, let's first check out

What is a reseller hosting service?

A hosting reseller service is a type of web hosting user account, which enables the user to set up separate subaccounts that can be sold to different clients. This is typically accomplished by furnishing the user with access to a main reseller web hosting account, via which he can set up various hosting accounts availing of the web server disk storage space offered by the web hosting reseller package, for which he pays a given fee. This is a lot similar to the shared hosting service and just like it, with the majority of reseller web hosting programs, many reseller accounts share the very same server and are not supplied with full server root access to the web server configuration files. Such reseller hosting programs are generally not that expensive. Yet, they do bar the resellers from selling other types of hosting services beside shared web hosting plans.

Various kinds of reseller web hosting services

Apart from the aforementioned method of reseller web hosting accounts, there are also a few different setups that work just as good. However, they differ in terms of the levels of participation and the amount of money that each one of them presupposes. As mentioned, the most popular way of reselling web hosting solutions gives you restricted possibilities and you risk forfeiting your cash if things don't work out. Because of this, larger web hosting suppliers such as ResellersPanel provide different ways of selling web hosting packages without having to buy anything beforehand, or to even be responsible for the provision of technical and invoicing support. With their program, the web hosting reseller subscribes free of charge and chooses his own personal retail prices for the web hosting services, which are being offered straight from his online storefront. As invoicing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's personnel, the reseller does not need to buy the service beforehand. He's simply going to receive the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the option to offer hosing solutions like virtual hosting server accounts, semi-dedicated plans and dedicated hosting server packages. More or less, his role involves advertising the web hosting service and providing support to the end clients and with hosting suppliers that do not demand preliminary taxes and cope with the invoicing and technical support provision, the only task left for the web hosting reseller will be to popularize his personal brand's web store. Another alternative will be to set up different user accounts on a VPS web hosting server, or on a dedicated web server. With most hosts, you may obtain those 2 hosting hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another web hosting CP, pre-installed on them. That will allow you to create various shared web hosting plans and exercise complete authority over both the users and the server itself. Furthermore, on a dedicated hosting server, you may create various VPS server hosting accounts and offer them to your customers. One dedicated web server may stash 1000's of virtual server web hosting accounts, based on the web server's specs. This will allow you to provide a larger assortment of services to your clients, which will present you with more possibilities when promoting your online store. Of course, utilizing a virtual hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server for reseller hosting objectives is much more expensive than having a conventional web hosting reseller account. Due to this reason, this opportunity should be contemplated only if the web hosting reseller has sufficient knowledge and training necessary to administer a web server, otherwise it's advisable to either sign up for an ordinary hosting reseller program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program provided by Resellers Panel, which demands less participation from the web hosting reseller.
