Web Hosting Reseller Explanation
There are a lot of ways of earning profit online and one of them is to sell the web hosting services supplied by a given web hosting solutions provider. This presents infinite possibilities for everybody who wishes to make additional cash. There are various sorts of web hosting reseller solutions, depending on the hosting reseller's level of involvement and, of course, on the web hosting firm that provides the service. Prior to going into that, let's first check out
What is a web hosting reseller solution?
A web hosting reseller solution is a kind of web hosting account, which allows the reseller to create different subaccounts that can be offered to different clients. This is normally achieved by granting the user access to a master web hosting reseller account, via which he can set up separate web hosting accounts with the server space provided by the web hosting reseller package, for which he pays a certain tax. This is a lot similar to the shared hosting solution and just like it, with most web hosting reseller programs, multiple reseller web hosting accounts share one and the very same hosting server and do not get full root-level access to the server configuration files. Such reseller web hosting programs are generally not that expensive. Yet, they do bar the web hosting resellers from reselling other types of hosting services aside from shared web hosting plans.
Various forms of web hosting reseller solutions
Aside from the already mentioned method of web hosting reseller accounts, there are also a few other setups that work just as fine. Yet, they vary in terms of the degrees of participation and the amount of money that each one of them entails. As already stated, the most popular method of selling web hosting services gives you restricted opportunities and you risk losing your money if things go wrong. For this reason, bigger hosting suppliers like ResellersPanel.com provide different ways of selling web hosting packages without having to buy anything upfront, or to even take care of the provision of customer and billing support. With their reseller hosting program, the web hosting reseller registers for free and specifies his own retail prices for the solutions, which are being offered straight from his web store. As billing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's team, the client does not need to buy the hosting service beforehand. He's only 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 distribute web hosting solutions like VPS hosting packages, semi-dedicated hosting packages and dedicated hosting. More or less, his job involves advertising the hosting service and offering support to the end users and with web hosting providers that do not request upfront charges and tackle the billing and technical support provision, the sole task left for the reseller will be to promote his private brand's web store. Another alternative will be to set up separate user accounts on a virtual web server, or on a dedicated hosting server. With the majority of hosting suppliers, you may get those 2 hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different CP, already installed on them. That will enable you to set up various shared web hosting plans and have full control over both the customers and the web hosting server itself. What is more, on a dedicated web hosting server, you may create separate virtual private web server hosting accounts and sell them to your clients. A single dedicated server may stash thousands of private virtual server accounts, depending on the server's architecture. This will permit you to offer a bigger assortment of hosting solutions to your clients, which will offer you more opportunities when advertising your online storefront. Surely, utilizing a virtual hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server for web hosting reseller goals is much more costly than utilizing a normal web hosting reseller account. So, this opportunity should be contemplated only on condition that the hosting reseller has sufficient knowledge and training required to handle a web server, otherwise it's recommended to either sign up for a regular web hosting reseller program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which demands less involvement from the reseller.
