What is Hosting Reseller?

There are a lot of means of earning cash online and one of them is to resell the shared hosting services furnished by a specific web host. This presents immense opportunities for everybody who would like to earn more money. There are several varieties of hosting reseller solutions, depending on the reseller's degree of involvement and, of course, on the company that offers the service. Before looking into that, let's first analyze

What is a hosting reseller service?

A hosting reseller solution is a type of hosting account, which enables the user to set up different subaccounts that can be offered to various customers. This is usually carried out by providing the user with access to a master hosting reseller account, through which he can create various web hosting accounts with the hard drive space included in the hosting reseller plan, for which he pays a certain tax. This is much similar to the shared web hosting solution and just like it, with the majority of hosting reseller programs, numerous reseller accounts share one and the same web server and are not bestowed with complete root-level access to the web server config files. Such reseller programs are normally not that expensive. Still, they do hamper the web hosting resellers from providing other types of web hosting services except shared web hosting plans.

Different sorts of hosting reseller solutions

Aside from the already mentioned method of hosting reseller accounts, there are also a few different schemes that work just as good. Still, they vary in terms of the degrees of involvement and the amount of money that each of them demands. As stated above, the most common method of selling hosting services gives you limited possibilities and you risk losing your cash if things don't go well. That's why, larger web hosting suppliers like ResellersPanel.com offer different modes of selling web hosting packages without having to purchase anything upfront, or to even become involved in the provision of customer and invoicing support. With their hosting reseller program, the web hosting reseller registers free of cost and selects his very own retail prices for the web hosting services, which are being offered directly from his web store. Because billing transactions are taken care of by ResellersPanel.com's team, the customer does not have to pay for the web hosting service in advance. He's only going to get the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price as a commission. The hosting reseller also has the chance to distribute hosing services like virtual private servers plans, semi-dedicated server plans and dedicated server. More or less, his role entails advertising the web hosting service and offering support to the end users and with hosting vendors that do not demand preliminary charges and handle the billing and customer support provision, the sole assignment left for the reseller will be to popularize his private brand's online store. Another option will be to set up separate user accounts on a virtual web server, or on a dedicated hosting web server. With the majority of hosting providers, you may obtain those two hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another web hosting CP, pre-installed on them. That will allow you to create various shared hosting accounts and exert full control over both the users and the hosting server itself. What is more, on a dedicated web server, you may set up different private virtual web server accounts and offer them to your customers. One single dedicated hosting web server may shelter thousands of VPS accounts, depending on the server's specifications. This will permit you to sell a bigger array of hosting services to your customers, which will present you with more opportunities when popularizing your online store. Of course, using a private virtual web server or a dedicated hosting web server for hosting reseller goals is much more expensive than utilizing a normal hosting reseller user account. That is the reason why, this option should be considered only on condition that the web hosting reseller has sufficient ability and training necessary to manage a web hosting server, otherwise it's advisable to either opt for a regular hosting reseller program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program offered by ResellersPanel.com, which requests less participation from the hosting reseller.
