Reseller Hosting Definition
There are many ways of gaining revenue on the web and one of them is to resell the hosting solutions supplied by some web hosting company. This presents infinite opportunities for everyone who desires to earn extra money. There are different varieties of reseller hosting services, based on the web hosting reseller's degree of commitment and, of course, on the hosting distributor that provides the hosting service. Prior to looking into that, let us first check out
What is a reseller hosting service?
A reseller hosting solution is a kind of hosting account, which allows the user to create different subaccounts that can be resold to various clients. This is chiefly accomplished by bestowing the user with access to a main reseller hosting account, via which he can create separate web hosting accounts using the hosting server disk space offered by the reseller hosting package, for which he pays a given price. This is much like the shared hosting solution and precisely like it, with most reseller hosting programs, numerous reseller web hosting accounts share one single web hosting server and do not get full root access to the server configuration files. Such web hosting reseller programs are normally not that expensive. Yet, they do impede the web hosting resellers from providing other forms of hosting services beside shared packages.
Various kinds of reseller hosting solutions
Apart from the already mentioned mode of reseller hosting accounts, there are also a few other setups that work just as fine. Still, they contrast in terms of the levels of involvement and the budget amount that each one of them demands. As mentioned above, the most common way of selling hosting services offers you limited options and you risk forfeiting your capital if things don't go well. That is why, larger hosting service providers such as ResellersPanel.com offer alternative ways of reselling hosting plans without having to purchase anything beforehand, or to even be responsible for the provision of technical and billing support. With their reseller web hosting program, the web hosting reseller signs up free of charge and specifies his own personal retail prices for the web hosting accounts, which are being offered directly from his online store. Because billing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's team, the reseller does not need to purchase the web hosting service in advance. He's simply going to obtain the difference between the retail and the wholesale price as a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the chance to offer web hosting solutions such as VPS plans, semi-dedicated plans and dedicated server. More or less, his job involves popularizing the service and providing support to the end customers and with hosting corporations that do not request preliminary charges and handle the invoicing and client support provision, the sole responsibility left for the web hosting reseller will be to popularize his personal brand's online store. Another alternative will be to create separate user accounts on a VPS web hosting server, or on a dedicated web server. With the majority of web hosting vendors, you may get those 2 hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other web hosting CP, pre-installed on them. That will enable you to create various shared web hosting accounts and have absolute authority over both the customers and the web hosting server itself. What is more, on a dedicated web hosting server, you may set up different private virtual hosting server accounts and offer them to your customers. A single dedicated server may accommodate thousands of VPS web hosting server accounts, depending on the web server's architecture. This will permit you to deliver a greater assortment of services to your clients, which will present you with more options when advertising your online storefront. Sure enough, utilizing a VPS hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server for reseller hosting purposes is much more costly than having a conventional reseller hosting user account. Hence, this option should be examined only in case the hosting reseller has sufficient ability and training necessary to handle a web server, otherwise it's recommended to either sign up for an average reseller hosting program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program offered by ResellersPanel.com, which requires less dedication from the web hosting reseller.
