What Exactly is Reseller Web Hosting?

There are plenty of means of making money on the web and one of them is to sell the shared hosting services furnished by a certain host. This provides immense possibilities for everyone who wishes to gain supplementary profit. There are different types of reseller web hosting services, based on the hosting reseller's degree of responsibility and, of course, on the web hosting service provider that offers the web hosting service. Before going into that, let us first discuss

What is a reseller web hosting service?

A reseller web hosting solution is a kind of hosting user account, which enables the reseller to set up different subaccounts that can be sold to various customers. This is generally accomplished by supplying the user with access to a main reseller web hosting account, via which he can set up different web hosting accounts availing of the hosting space offered by the reseller web hosting plan, for which he pays a certain charge. This is much like the shared hosting solution and exactly like it, with the majority of reseller web hosting programs, lots of reseller hosting accounts share one single server and are not granted complete root-level access to the server config files. Such reseller programs are normally not that high-priced. Still, they do prevent the web hosting resellers from delivering other kinds of web hosting solutions except shared hosting plans.

Various kinds of reseller web hosting services

Apart from the aforementioned mode of reseller web hosting plans, there are also several other ways that work just as good. Still, they vary with respect to the degrees of commitment and the amount of money that each of them involves. As mentioned above, the most popular way of selling hosting solutions gives you restricted opportunities and you risk losing your money if things go wrong. That's why, bigger hosting corporations like ResellersPanel.com provide different ways of reselling web hosting accounts without the need to pay for anything beforehand, or to even be involved in the provision of customer and billing support. With their web hosting reseller program, the hosting reseller signs up free of cost and designates his very own personal retail prices for the web hosting accounts, which are being offered directly from his web storefront. As billing transactions are taken care of by ResellersPanel.com's personnel, the reseller does not need to purchase the hosting service in advance. He's merely going to get the difference between the retail and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the possibility to offer web hosting solutions such as virtual private servers, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated server. More or less, his duty entails advertising the web hosting service and offering support to the end users and with web hosting corporations that do not demand upfront taxes and handle the invoicing and client support provision, the sole duty left for the reseller will be to promote his personal brand's online storefront. Another option will be to set up separate user accounts on a virtual server, or on a dedicated hosting server. With the majority of web hosting suppliers, you may get those two hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another web hosting Control Panel, pre-installed on them. That will enable you to create various shared hosting plans and exercise total authority over both the clients and the server itself. In addition, on a dedicated web server, you may create different VPS server web hosting accounts and resell them to your customers. A single dedicated web hosting server may host thousands of virtual server hosting accounts, depending on the server's configuration. This will enable you to deliver a bigger assortment of hosting services to your clients, which will furnish you with more possibilities when advertising your web store. Surely, utilizing a virtual web server or a dedicated web server for reseller web hosting purposes is much more expensive than having a conventional reseller web hosting account. Thus, this possibility should be considered only on condition that the reseller has sufficient ability and practice demanded to handle a web hosting server, otherwise it's advisable to either opt for a conventional reseller web hosting program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program offered by ResellersPanel.com, which requires less commitment from the web hosting reseller.
