How Does Hosting Reseller Work?

There are plenty of means of earning profit on the web and one of them is to sell the web hosting solutions offered by a certain host. This presents countless possibilities for everyone who wishes to generate supplementary revenue. There are various varieties of hosting reseller solutions, based on the reseller's level of commitment and, of course, on the web hosting firm that provides the web hosting service. Before looking into that, let us first check out

What is a hosting reseller service?

A hosting reseller solution is a kind of web hosting user account, which allows the reseller to set up various subaccounts that can be offered to different clients. This is normally achieved by bestowing the user with access to a main hosting reseller account, through which he can set up different web hosting accounts availing of the web hosting storage space offered by the hosting reseller package, for which he pays a certain fee. This is much like the shared hosting solution and precisely like it, with most hosting reseller programs, multiple hosting reseller accounts share a single hosting server and are not given full root access to the web server configuration files. Such reseller web hosting programs are usually not that high-priced. However, they do hamper the resellers from selling other types of hosting solutions apart from shared plans.

Different varieties of hosting reseller services

Aside from the aforementioned mode of hosting reseller accounts, there are also a few other ways that work just as good. However, they differ with respect to the levels of commitment and the amount of money that each of them entails. As already mentioned, the most common mode of reselling web hosting solutions offers you limited opportunities and you risk forfeiting your cash if things don't work out. That is the reason why, larger web hosting firms such as ResellersPanel.com offer different ways of reselling hosting plans without having to buy anything upfront, or to even get involved in the provision of technical and billing support. With their reseller web hosting program, the web hosting reseller registers for free and determines his own retail prices for the hosting plans, which are being sold directly from his web store. Since invoicing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel.com's staff, the reseller does not have to purchase the web hosting service in advance. He's simply going to get the difference between the retail and the wholesale price as a commission. The reseller also has the option to resell hosing services such as VPS hosting services, semi-dedicated hosting services and dedicated hosting. More or less, his role entails promoting the web hosting service and providing support to the end users and with hosts that do not request upfront taxes and tackle the invoicing and client support provision, the only assignment left for the hosting reseller will be to promote his private brand's web store. Another option will be to set up different accounts on a VPS server, or on a dedicated web hosting server. With most hosting companies, you may receive those 2 web hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different web hosting CP, already installed on them. That will allow you to create various shared hosting packages and exert full authority over both the clients and the web server itself. What is more, on a dedicated hosting web server, you may create different private virtual server hosting accounts and offer them to your customers. A single dedicated server may hold 1000's of VPS server accounts, depending on the server's capacity. This will enable you to offer a larger variety of services to your customers, which will provide you with more opportunities when advertising your online store. Certainly, utilizing a VPS web server or a dedicated hosting web server for hosting reseller aims is much more costly than utilizing a regular hosting reseller account. Thus, this option should be examined only on condition that the reseller has enough ability and training demanded to handle a hosting server, otherwise it's advisable to either opt for an ordinary hosting reseller program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which demands less commitment from the web hosting reseller.
