What is Web Hosting Reseller?
There are plenty of ways of earning profit on the World Wide Web and one of them is to sell the hosting solutions offered by some web hosting solutions provider. This offers limitless opportunities for everyone who desires to gain additional money. There are various varieties of web hosting reseller solutions, based on the web hosting reseller's level of participation and, of course, on the web hosting distributor that offers the hosting service. Before going into that, let us first explore
What is a web hosting reseller solution?
A web hosting reseller service is a kind of web hosting user account, which permits the reseller to set up separate sub-accounts that can be offered to various clients. This is commonly carried out by supplying the user with access to a main web hosting reseller account, via which he can set up various web hosting accounts with the web server storage space provided by the web hosting reseller plan, for which he pays a certain fee. This is much similar to the shared web hosting solution and exactly like it, with the majority of web hosting reseller programs, multiple web hosting reseller accounts share the very same web server and do not have root access to the web server configuration files. Such reseller hosting programs are typically not that expensive. Yet, they do prevent the resellers from distributing other kinds of web hosting services apart from shared web hosting plans.
Various varieties of web hosting reseller solutions
Beside the abovementioned method of web hosting reseller plans, there are also a few other schemes that work just as good. Yet, they contrast in terms of the levels of commitment and the amount of funds that each of them presupposes. As already stated, the most popular way of selling web hosting services gives you restricted opportunities and you risk forfeiting your money if things don't work out. For this reason, larger web hosting providers such as ResellersPanel.com provide different modes of selling hosting plans without having to purchase anything upfront, or to even get involved in the provision of client and invoicing support. With their program, the web hosting reseller signs up free of charge and fixes his own retail prices for the web hosting plans, which are being sold straight from his online storefront. As invoicing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's personnel, the reseller does not have to purchase the web hosting service upfront. He's just going to get the difference between the retail and the wholesale price as a commission. The reseller also has the chance to provide hosing services like VPS plans, semi-dedicated plans and dedicated server. More or less, his role comes down to popularizing the service and providing support to the end customers and with hosting distributors that do not require upfront charges and cope with the invoicing and client support provision, the only responsibility left for the reseller will be to popularize his private brand's web storefront. Another alternative will be to set up separate user accounts on a virtual private web server, or on a dedicated hosting web server. With most hosts, you may obtain those two web hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another web hosting Control Panel, already installed on them. That will enable you to create different shared web hosting accounts and exercise complete control over both the clients and the web hosting server itself. Moreover, on a dedicated hosting web server, you may set up various virtual hosting server accounts and resell them to your customers. One dedicated hosting server may host 1000's of VPS server accounts, based on the server's architecture. This will enable you to offer a greater variety of services to your clients, which will provide you with more possibilities when popularizing your online store. Surely, using a virtual hosting server or a dedicated hosting server for web hosting reseller aims is much more costly than utilizing a conventional web hosting reseller account. So, this opportunity should be examined only in case the web hosting reseller has enough knowledge and practice needed to handle a web hosting server, otherwise it's recommendable to either register for an ordinary web hosting reseller program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program courtesy of ResellersPanel.com, which requests less commitment from the web hosting reseller.
