What Precisely is Web Hosting Reseller?

There are a lot of ways of gaining money on the World Wide Web and one of them is to resell the hosting solutions provided by a given hosting vendor. This provides limitless options for everybody who desires to generate additional profit. There are different sorts of web hosting reseller services, depending on the web hosting reseller's degree of participation and, of course, on the provider that offers the hosting service. Prior to going into that, let's first check out

What is a web hosting reseller solution?

A web hosting reseller service is a kind of hosting user account, which permits the reseller to set up various subaccounts that can be offered to different clients. This is mostly carried out by giving the reseller access to a master web hosting reseller account, through which he can create various hosting accounts using the web hosting server hard drive space offered by the web hosting reseller package, for which he pays a certain tax. This is a lot similar to the shared web hosting solution and just like it, with most web hosting reseller programs, many hosting reseller accounts share one single hosting server and are not furnished with complete root access to the web server configuration files. Such reseller programs are usually not that high-priced. Yet, they do bar the web hosting resellers from reselling other types of web hosting services apart from shared plans.

Various forms of web hosting reseller services

Apart from the abovementioned manner of web hosting reseller plans, there are also a few different setups that work just as fine. However, they vary in terms of the levels of participation and the budget amount that each of them entails. As mentioned above, the most popular mode of selling web hosting solutions offers you limited opportunities and you risk forfeiting your money if things don't work out. This is the reason why, larger hosting service providers like ResellersPanel.com provide alternative ways of reselling hosting accounts without the need to buy anything upfront, or to even get involved in the provision of customer and billing support. With their hosting reseller program, the hosting reseller subscribes free of cost and sets his own retail prices for the hosting plans, which are being offered straight from his online storefront. Because billing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel.com's team, the user does not have to pay for the hosting service upfront. He's merely going to receive the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price as a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the opportunity to deliver hosing services such as VPS plans, semi-dedicated plans and dedicated server. More or less, his duty involves advertising the service and providing support to the end users and with hosting companies that do not request preliminary taxes and tackle the billing and customer support provision, the sole responsibility left for the reseller will be to promote his private brand's web store. Another possibility will be to create separate accounts on a virtual server, or on a dedicated hosting server. With most web hosting companies, you may get those two web hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other hosting Control Panel, already installed on them. That will permit you to set up different shared hosting accounts and exert absolute authority over both the users and the web hosting server itself. Moreover, on a dedicated server, you may create various virtual private web hosting server accounts and sell them to your clients. One single dedicated server may host 1000's of virtual server accounts, depending on the server's specifications. This will enable you to deliver a bigger assortment of services to your customers, which will provide you with more options when advertising your web store. Surely, utilizing a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated hosting server for web hosting reseller objectives is much more expensive than having a normal web hosting reseller account. That is why, this opportunity should be contemplated only in case the reseller has enough ability and practice necessary to administer a hosting server, otherwise it's recommended to either sign up for a standard web hosting reseller program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which requests less dedication from the web hosting reseller.
