Web Hosting Reseller Description
There are plenty of means of earning revenue online and one of them is to resell the web hosting solutions provided by a certain hosting vendor. This presents immense opportunities for everyone who wishes to gain additional profit. There are various types of web hosting reseller solutions, depending on the hosting reseller's level of involvement and, of course, on the hosting company that offers the service. Before going into that, let us first discuss
What is a web hosting reseller service?
A web hosting reseller solution is a type of web hosting user account, which allows the user to create separate sub-accounts that can be offered to various customers. This is generally achieved by offering the user access to a master web hosting reseller account, through which he can create various hosting accounts availing of the hosting server hard drive storage space offered by the web hosting reseller package, for which he pays a certain fee. This is a lot similar to the shared hosting solution and precisely like it, with most web hosting reseller programs, a lot of hosting reseller accounts share a single server and do not have root-level access to the server configuration files. Such hosting reseller programs are usually not that high-priced. However, they do bar the web hosting resellers from offering other forms of web hosting solutions except shared web hosting packages.
Different kinds of web hosting reseller solutions
Aside from the aforementioned manner of web hosting reseller accounts, there are also several different schemes that work just as good. However, they contrast in terms of the levels of participation and the amount of resources that each of them involves. As already mentioned, the most popular way of reselling hosting solutions gives you restricted opportunities and you risk forfeiting your money if things go wrong. That's why, larger hosting providers like ResellersPanel.com offer alternative methods of selling web hosting plans without having to pay for anything in advance, or to even cope with the provision of technical and invoicing support. With their reseller hosting program, the hosting reseller signs up free of cost and chooses his own retail prices for the web hosting plans, which are being sold straight from his web store. Because billing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's team, the customer does not have to purchase the web hosting service beforehand. He's simply going to receive the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price as a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the opportunity to resell web hosting solutions such as VPS hosting packages, semi-dedicated hosting packages and dedicated hosting. More or less, his duty comes down to popularizing the web hosting service and providing support to the end customers and with web hosting corporations that do not demand preliminary installments and take care of the invoicing and customer support provision, the only assignment left for the reseller will be to popularize his private brand's online storefront. Another possibility will be to set up different user accounts on a virtual hosting server, or on a dedicated server. With most hosting distributors, you may receive those 2 web hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different web hosting CP, pre-installed on them. That will allow you to set up different shared web hosting plans and have total authority over both the customers and the web server itself. What is more, on a dedicated web hosting server, you may set up different VPS server hosting accounts and sell them to your clients. One dedicated server may stash 1000's of virtual private hosting server accounts, based on the web server's capacity. This will enable you to deliver a wider variety of web hosting services to your clients, which will present you with more options when advertising your web storefront. Certainly, utilizing a VPS hosting server or a dedicated web server for web hosting reseller objectives is much more costly than using a regular web hosting reseller account. That's why, this option should be considered only in case the hosting reseller has enough understanding and experience needed to administer a hosting server, otherwise it's advisable to either register for a conventional web hosting reseller program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which requests less participation from the hosting reseller.
