What Precisely is Reseller Hosting?

There are plenty of means of gaining cash on the web and one of them is to sell the hosting services furnished by a particular web hosting corporation. This presents infinite opportunities for everybody who wants to gain extra profit. There are several kinds of reseller hosting solutions, depending on the reseller's level of responsibility and, of course, on the hosting company that offers the hosting service. Prior to looking into that, let's first discuss

What is a reseller hosting solution?

A reseller hosting service is a sort of web hosting user account, which enables the reseller to set up separate subaccounts that can be offered to different customers. This is commonly accomplished by granting the user access to a main reseller hosting account, through which he can set up various web hosting accounts with the web server disk drive space offered by the reseller hosting plan, for which he pays a given tax. This is much similar to the shared hosting solution and precisely like it, with the majority of reseller hosting programs, numerous hosting reseller accounts share a single web hosting server and are not supplied with complete root access to the web server configuration files. Such reseller programs are usually not that costly. However, they do prevent the hosting resellers from selling other sorts of hosting services except shared packages.

Various sorts of reseller hosting solutions

Beside the aforementioned method of reseller hosting packages, there are also a few different ways that work just as fine. However, they vary with respect to the levels of commitment and the amount of funds that each of them presupposes. As stated above, the most popular mode of reselling web hosting solutions offers you restricted opportunities and you risk forfeiting your investment if things don't go well. This is the reason why, bigger hosting providers like ResellersPanel.com provide alternative methods of reselling web hosting packages without having to buy anything in advance, or to even take care of the provision of client and billing support. With their program, the reseller subscribes for free and specifies his own personal retail prices for the hosting accounts, which are being offered straight from his online store. As invoicing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's team, the user does not need to buy the web hosting service in advance. He's only going to obtain the difference between the retail and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The reseller also has the opportunity to offer hosing solutions like VPS plans, semi-dedicated plans and dedicated server. More or less, his role involves promoting the service and providing support to the end customers and with web hosting providers that do not demand preliminary taxes and cope with the invoicing and customer support provision, the only duty left for the reseller will be to advertise his personal brand's online store. Another alternative will be to set up separate user accounts on a virtual private web hosting server, or on a dedicated web hosting server. With the majority of hosting service providers, you may get those two web hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other web hosting Control Panel, pre-installed on them. That will allow you to create various shared hosting packages and exert complete authority over both the users and the hosting server itself. Moreover, on a dedicated hosting web server, you may set up separate virtual web hosting server accounts and offer them to your customers. One dedicated server may accommodate thousands of VPS web hosting server accounts, depending on the server's configuration. This will permit you to deliver a bigger variety of web hosting solutions to your clients, which will give you more opportunities when advertising your online store. Surely, utilizing a VPS web server or a dedicated web hosting server for reseller hosting objectives is much more expensive than using a standard reseller hosting account. For that reason, this alternative should be considered only if the web hosting reseller has sufficient understanding and practice needed to administer a hosting server, otherwise it's recommendable to either opt for a regular reseller hosting program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which requests less involvement from the hosting reseller.
