The Essence of Reseller Web Hosting

There are plenty of ways of generating money online and one of them is to resell the web hosting solutions furnished by a certain hosting supplier. This presents immeasurable options for everybody who wishes to earn more money. There are various types of reseller web hosting services, based on the reseller's level of involvement and, of course, on the hosting provider that provides the service. Prior to looking into that, let us first check out

What is a reseller hosting service?

A web hosting reseller service is a sort of hosting account, which permits the user to set up different subaccounts that can be resold to different clients. This is mostly accomplished by furnishing the user with access to a master reseller hosting account, via which he can create separate web hosting accounts with the server hard drive storage space included in the web hosting reseller plan, for which he pays a given tax. This is much similar to the shared hosting service and just like it, with the majority of hosting reseller programs, a lot of web hosting reseller accounts share the same hosting server and are not provided with full root access to the web server configuration files. Such reseller hosting programs are normally not that high-priced. Still, they do prevent the resellers from promoting other forms of hosting solutions except shared web hosting packages.

Different forms of reseller web hosting services

Apart from the already mentioned way of web hosting reseller packages, there are also a few other schemes that work just as fine. However, they contrast with respect to the levels of involvement and the amount of money that each of them necessitates. As mentioned, the most common method of reselling services gives you limited alternatives and you risk losing your cash if things go wrong. Because of this, bigger web hosting suppliers such as Resellers Panel offer different ways of reselling hosting packages without having to buy anything beforehand, or to even become involved in the provision of client and billing support. With their reseller hosting program, the reseller signs up free of charge and selects his very own retail prices for the hosting packages, which are being offered straight from his online storefront. Since billing transactions are tackled by Resellers Panel's staff, the reseller does not have to pay for the service in advance. He's simply going to obtain 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 resell web hosting solutions such as virtual web server plans, semi-dedicated web server hosting accounts and dedicated web servers. More or less, his role comes down to advertising the web hosting service and offering support to the end clients and with hosts that do not request preliminary installments and cope with the billing and client support provision, the sole responsibility left for the reseller will be to promote his personal brand's web store. Another possibility will be to set up different user accounts on a VPS web 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 some other CP, already installed on them. That will permit you to set up various shared hosting packages and have total authority over both the customers and the web hosting server itself. Also, on a dedicated hosting server, you may set up separate VPS web server accounts and offer them to your clients. One dedicated web hosting server may keep 1000's of VPS server web hosting accounts, depending on the web server's specifications. This will enable you to provide a bigger variety of hosting services to your customers, which will give you more options when popularizing your web storefront. Sure enough, using a VPS or a dedicated hosting server for web hosting reseller goals is much more costly than having an ordinary web hosting reseller user account. That's why, this possibility should be examined only if the hosting reseller has sufficient ability and practice demanded to handle a server, otherwise it's recommended to either opt for a normal web hosting reseller program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program provided by Resellers Panel, which demands less commitment from the hosting reseller.
