Explanation of Web Hosting Reseller
There are lots of means of generating revenue on the Internet and one of them is to resell the shared hosting solutions supplied by a specific hosting provider. This presents vast opportunities for everybody who wishes to make extra profit. There are several sorts of web hosting reseller solutions, depending on the web hosting reseller's level of responsibility and, of course, on the hosting vendor that offers the web hosting service. Prior to looking into that, let us first check out
What is a web hosting reseller solution?
A web hosting reseller solution is a sort of hosting user account, which permits the reseller to create various sub-accounts that can be resold to various clients. This is chiefly achieved by providing the reseller with access to a main web hosting reseller account, via which he can create separate hosting accounts with the storage space included in the web hosting reseller package, for which he pays a given charge. This is a lot like the shared hosting solution and just like it, with most web hosting reseller programs, lots of reseller web hosting accounts share one single server and do not get full root access to the web server configuration files. Such reseller hosting programs are usually not that expensive. Yet, they do restrain the hosting resellers from distributing other types of web hosting solutions apart from shared hosting plans.
Different forms of web hosting reseller services
Apart from the already mentioned mode of web hosting reseller accounts, there are also several different setups that work just as good. Still, they vary in terms of the degrees of commitment and the amount of cash that each of them demands. As already stated, the most popular mode of selling hosting services offers you limited opportunities and you risk forfeiting your cash if things go wrong. That is why, bigger hosting firms such as ResellersPanel.com provide alternative methods of reselling hosting accounts without having to buy anything in advance, or to even be involved in the provision of customer and billing support. With their web hosting reseller program, the web hosting reseller signs up for free and determines his own retail prices for the services, which are being offered straight from his online store. As billing transactions are taken care of by ResellersPanel.com's personnel, the user does not need to pay for the web hosting service in advance. He's merely going to obtain the difference between the retail and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The reseller also has the possibility to distribute hosing solutions like VPS hosting, semi-dedicated hosting and dedicated hosting. More or less, his role comes down to advertising the hosting service and offering support to the end users and with providers that do not demand upfront fees and deal with the invoicing and customer support provision, the sole task left for the hosting reseller will be to advertise his private brand's online storefront. Another possibility will be to set up different accounts on a private virtual hosting server, or on a dedicated hosting web server. With most hosting corporations, you may get those 2 hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different hosting CP, pre-installed on them. That will allow you to set up various shared web hosting packages and exert full control over both the customers and the web server itself. Additionally, on a dedicated hosting server, you may set up different private virtual web server accounts and sell them to your customers. One single dedicated hosting server may accommodate thousands of private virtual web server accounts, based on the web server's capacity. This will permit you to provide a bigger variety of hosting solutions to your customers, which will provide you with more alternatives when promoting your online store. Certainly, utilizing a VPS server or a dedicated web hosting server for web hosting reseller goals is much more costly than having a normal web hosting reseller account. This is the reason why, this option should be contemplated only if the reseller has enough ability and experience demanded to handle a server, otherwise it's recommended to either sign up for a normal web hosting reseller program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which requests less involvement from the hosting reseller.
