Description of Reseller Web Hosting
There are plenty of ways of gaining profit online and one of them is to sell the hosting solutions supplied by a specific web hosting supplier. This offers infinite possibilities for everyone who would like to generate supplementary money. There are various types of reseller web hosting services, based on the reseller's level of involvement and, of course, on the web hosting company that provides the web hosting service. Before going into that, let's first check out
What is a reseller web hosting service?
A reseller web hosting service is a kind of hosting account, which allows the user to set up various sub-accounts that can be resold to various customers. This is typically accomplished by providing the user with access to a main reseller web hosting account, via which he can create various web hosting accounts utilizing the web server hard disk space offered by the reseller web hosting package, for which he pays a certain price. This is a lot like the shared hosting solution and just like it, with the majority of reseller web hosting programs, lots of reseller accounts share one and the same server and are not bestowed with full server root access to the web server config files. Such hosting reseller programs are generally not that expensive. However, they do hamper the hosting resellers from distributing other kinds of hosting services except shared hosting packages.
Various types of reseller web hosting solutions
Aside from the abovementioned mode of reseller web hosting accounts, there are also a few different schemes that work just as fine. However, they vary with respect to the levels of commitment and the amount of funds that each one of them presupposes. As mentioned above, the most common method of selling hosting services offers you limited alternatives and you risk forfeiting your investment if things don't go well. This is the reason why, bigger hosting corporations like ResellersPanel.com provide different modes of selling hosting plans without the need to purchase anything beforehand, or to even take care of the provision of technical and billing support. With their program, the hosting reseller registers free of charge and names his very own personal retail prices for the web hosting packages, which are being offered straight from his online storefront. As invoicing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's personnel, the customer does not have to pay for the service upfront. He's simply going to obtain the difference between the retail and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The hosting reseller also has the possibility to sell web hosting solutions such as VPS packages, semi-dedicated packages and dedicated package. More or less, his role involves promoting the web hosting service and offering support to the end clients and with hosts that do not demand preliminary charges and tackle the billing and customer support provision, the sole assignment left for the web hosting reseller will be to popularize his private brand's online store. Another option will be to set up separate accounts on a VPS hosting server, or on a dedicated web hosting server. With the majority of hosting companies, you may receive those 2 hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other CP, already installed on them. That will allow you to set up different shared hosting packages and have absolute authority over both the users and the hosting server itself. Moreover, on a dedicated hosting web server, you may create separate virtual hosting server accounts and offer them to your customers. One dedicated hosting web server may stash thousands of VPS web hosting accounts, depending on the server's capacity. This will allow you to sell a bigger array of web hosting solutions to your customers, which will provide you with more possibilities when popularizing your online store. Surely, using a virtual private web server or a dedicated web server for reseller web hosting goals is much more costly than having an average reseller web hosting user account. That is why, this alternative should be examined only if the web hosting reseller has sufficient ability and practice needed to administer a hosting server, otherwise it's recommended to either sign up for a normal reseller web hosting program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which requires less dedication from the hosting reseller.
