Web Hosting Reseller
There are plenty of means of making money on the Internet and one of them is to sell the web hosting solutions furnished by a given web hosting accounts provider. This offers limitless opportunities for everyone who desires to generate more profit. There are several sorts of reseller hosting solutions, based on the reseller's degree of involvement and, of course, on the host that offers the web hosting service. Prior to looking into that, let's first analyze
What is a hosting reseller service?
A web hosting reseller solution is a sort of hosting account, which permits the user to create various subaccounts that can be offered to various customers. This is commonly carried out by bestowing the user with access to a master reseller account, via which he can create separate web hosting accounts using the server storage space included in the reseller web hosting plan, for which he pays a certain charge. This is a lot similar to the shared hosting solution and exactly like it, with most reseller web hosting programs, multiple reseller hosting accounts share the very same web hosting server and are not granted complete root-level access to the web server config files. Such hosting reseller programs are normally not that high-priced. However, they do hamper the hosting resellers from offering other sorts of web hosting services apart from shared packages.
Different varieties of web hosting reseller solutions
Aside from the already mentioned manner of reseller hosting accounts, there are also a few different setups that work just as good. Yet, they vary in terms of the levels of involvement and the amount of resources that each of them demands. As already mentioned, the most popular way of selling hosting services offers you restricted options and you risk forfeiting your cash if things don't work out. That's why, larger service providers like Resellers Panel provide alternative ways of selling hosting accounts without having to pay for anything in advance, or to even take care of the provision of technical and invoicing support. With their web hosting reseller program, the reseller signs up free of charge and chooses his very own personal retail prices for the hosting solutions, which are being sold straight from his web storefront. Since billing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel's staff, the client does not have to purchase the hosting service beforehand. He's simply going to obtain the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The hosting reseller also has the option to sell web hosting solutions like Virtual Private Server packages, semi-dedicated hosting server packages and dedicated web hosting accounts. More or less, his role involves promoting the service and providing support to the end clients and with hosting corporations that do not request preliminary installments and deal with the billing and client support provision, the sole responsibility left for the hosting reseller will be to promote his personal brand's online store. Another possibility will be to create separate user accounts on a virtual web server, or on a dedicated server. With the majority of web hosting service providers, you may obtain those 2 web hosting web hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different Control Panel, already installed on them. That will enable you to set up different shared web hosting packages and have full control over both the customers and the web hosting server itself. Also, on a dedicated hosting server, you may set up separate VPS web hosting accounts and resell them to your clients. One single dedicated hosting server may store 1000's of VPS web server hosting accounts, based on the web server's architecture. This will permit you to deliver a greater array of hosting solutions to your customers, which will present you with more possibilities when advertising your online store. Of course, using a virtual private hosting server or a dedicated server for reseller web hosting aims is much more costly than utilizing an average reseller web hosting account. For that reason, this possibility should be considered only on condition that the web hosting reseller has sufficient knowledge and practice necessary to manage a web hosting server, otherwise it's recommendable to either sign up for a normal reseller hosting program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which requests less commitment from the web hosting reseller.
