How Web Hosting Reseller Works

There are lots of ways of gaining money on the Internet and one of them is to resell the web hosting services provided by a specific hosting firm. This offers vast options for everybody who wishes to earn more profit. There are various kinds of web hosting reseller solutions, based on the web hosting reseller's level of participation and, of course, on the web hosting company that offers the web hosting service. Prior to looking into that, let's first explore

What is a web hosting reseller solution?

A web hosting reseller service is a type of web hosting account, which allows the reseller to set up different sub-accounts that can be sold to different customers. This is chiefly accomplished by bestowing the user with access to a main web hosting reseller account, via which he can create separate web hosting accounts availing of the space included in the web hosting reseller plan, for which he pays a given fee. This is a lot like the shared web hosting service and just like it, with the majority of web hosting reseller programs, many reseller hosting accounts share a single server and are not furnished with root access to the web server configuration files. Such web hosting reseller programs are generally not that high-priced. Still, they do bar the resellers from reselling other forms of web hosting solutions beside shared web hosting plans.

Different kinds of web hosting reseller solutions

Apart from the aforementioned mode of web hosting reseller accounts, there are also a few different ways that work just as fine. Yet, they differ with respect to the degrees of involvement and the amount of money that each one of them demands. As stated above, the most common way of reselling hosting services offers you restricted possibilities and you risk losing your investment if things go wrong. This is why, larger hosting firms such as ResellersPanel.com offer different ways of selling web hosting plans without having to purchase anything upfront, or to even deal with the provision of client and invoicing support. With their program, the web hosting reseller subscribes free of cost and chooses his very own personal retail prices for the hosting services, which are being offered straight from his web store. As invoicing transactions are taken care of by ResellersPanel.com's staff, the customer does not need to pay for the web hosting service in advance. He's only going to obtain the difference between the retail and the wholesale price as a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the option to provide hosing solutions like VPS web hosting, semi-dedicated web hosting and dedicated web hosting. More or less, his duty entails promoting the web hosting service and offering support to the end users and with web hosting service providers that do not request upfront taxes and are responsible for the invoicing and customer support provision, the sole task left for the web hosting reseller will be to promote his personal brand's online storefront. Another possibility will be to set up separate accounts on a virtual web hosting server, or on a dedicated hosting server. With the majority of hosting service providers, you may obtain those two web hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different hosting Control Panel, pre-installed on them. That will enable you to create different shared hosting packages and have full authority over both the users and the server itself. Furthermore, on a dedicated server, you may create separate virtual private web server hosting accounts and resell them to your customers. A single dedicated server may store thousands of VPS web hosting server accounts, based on the web server's specs. This will allow you to deliver a wider variety of hosting solutions to your customers, which will present you with more opportunities when popularizing your online storefront. Certainly, utilizing a private virtual web server or a dedicated server for web hosting reseller goals is much more costly than using a conventional web hosting reseller user account. Therefore, this opportunity should be considered only if the hosting reseller has enough ability and training necessary to handle a web server, otherwise it's advisable to either sign up for a normal web hosting reseller program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program courtesy of ResellersPanel.com, which demands less involvement from the hosting reseller.
