What Indeed is Hosting Reseller?

There are plenty of means of making profit on the Internet and one of them is to sell the hosting solutions supplied by some provider. This offers immeasurable possibilities for everybody who desires to gain more money. There are different types of hosting reseller solutions, based on the hosting reseller's level of participation and, of course, on the web hosting company that offers the web hosting service. Before going into that, let's first discuss

What is a hosting reseller solution?

A hosting reseller solution is a kind of hosting user account, which allows the user to set up separate sub-accounts that can be offered to various customers. This is usually achieved by furnishing the user with access to a main hosting reseller account, via which he can set up separate hosting accounts with the web server hard disk storage space included in the hosting reseller package, for which he pays a certain tax. This is much like the shared web hosting solution and just like it, with the majority of hosting reseller programs, a lot of reseller accounts share a single web hosting server and are not bestowed with full server root access to the web server configuration files. Such hosting reseller programs are usually not that high-priced. However, they do deter the hosting resellers from providing other types of web hosting solutions apart from shared hosting packages.

Various types of hosting reseller services

Beside the already mentioned way of hosting reseller plans, there are also several different setups that work just as fine. However, they differ in terms of the degrees of participation and the amount of money that each one of them presupposes. As mentioned above, the most common method of reselling hosting solutions gives you restricted opportunities and you risk forfeiting your cash if things don't go well. For this reason, larger hosting suppliers like ResellersPanel.com provide different modes of selling hosting plans without having to purchase anything in advance, or to even get involved in the provision of client and billing support. With their reseller hosting program, the reseller registers free of cost and puts his own retail prices for the web hosting plans, which are being sold directly from his online store. Since invoicing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's team, the reseller does not need to purchase the service upfront. He's only going to get the difference between the retail and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The reseller also has the opportunity to distribute web hosting services like VPS, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated server. More or less, his job involves popularizing the hosting service and offering support to the end customers and with hosting suppliers that do not require upfront charges and tackle the invoicing and client support provision, the sole duty left for the web hosting reseller will be to advertise his personal brand's online storefront. Another alternative will be to create different user accounts on a private virtual server, or on a dedicated web hosting server. With most web hosting providers, you may receive those two web hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other CP, pre-installed on them. That will enable you to set up different shared hosting accounts and have complete control over both the customers and the server itself. Also, on a dedicated hosting server, you may set up various virtual web hosting server accounts and offer them to your clients. A single dedicated web hosting server may store thousands of VPS server accounts, depending on the web server's architecture. This will permit you to deliver a more extensive assortment of hosting services to your clients, which will present you with more alternatives when advertising your web store. Certainly, using a private virtual web hosting server or a dedicated hosting web server for hosting reseller objectives is much more costly than having a standard hosting reseller account. This is why, this option should be examined only on condition that the hosting reseller has sufficient ability and practice necessary to handle a web hosting server, otherwise it's advisable to either opt for a regular hosting reseller program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program courtesy of ResellersPanel.com, which demands less participation from the hosting reseller.
