What is Reseller Hosting?

There are plenty of ways of generating cash on the Internet and one of them is to sell the hosting services offered by a specific company. This offers infinite options for everybody who desires to earn extra cash. There are various kinds of reseller hosting solutions, based on the hosting reseller's level of responsibility and, of course, on the hosting provider that provides the service. Prior to going into that, let's first check out

What is a reseller hosting service?

A reseller hosting solution is a kind of web hosting user account, which enables the reseller to set up different subaccounts that can be offered to different customers. This is mainly achieved by giving the user access to a main reseller hosting account, via which he can create various web hosting accounts utilizing the storage space provided by the reseller hosting plan, for which he pays a given charge. This is a lot similar to the shared web hosting service and precisely like it, with the majority of reseller hosting programs, lots of reseller web hosting accounts share one and the same server and are not granted full server root access to the server configuration files. Such reseller programs are usually not that expensive. However, they do prevent the hosting resellers from delivering other sorts of hosting services aside from shared web hosting packages.

Different forms of reseller hosting solutions

Apart from the aforementioned method of reseller hosting plans, there are also a few other setups that work just as fine. Yet, they contrast in terms of the levels of involvement and the amount of resources that each one of them demands. As mentioned, the most common method of selling hosting services gives you limited opportunities and you risk forfeiting your funds if things don't go well. That's why, larger web hosting providers such as ResellersPanel.com offer alternative ways of selling web hosting accounts without having to pay for anything beforehand, or to even be involved in the provision of client and billing support. With their reseller web hosting program, the reseller registers for free and designates his very own personal retail prices for the web hosting packages, which are being offered directly from his online store. As billing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel.com's staff, the customer does not have to buy the service upfront. He's just going to get the difference between the retail and the wholesale price as a commission. The reseller also has the possibility to deliver web hosting solutions like VPS, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated server. More or less, his role involves advertising the web hosting service and providing support to the end users and with hosting corporations that do not request preliminary fees and tackle the billing and client support provision, the sole duty left for the hosting reseller will be to promote his private brand's online store. Another possibility will be to set up separate accounts on a private virtual web server, or on a dedicated web server. With most web hosting corporations, you may receive those 2 hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another hosting CP, pre-installed on them. That will enable you to set up different shared web hosting plans and exercise total authority over both the users and the hosting server itself. Moreover, on a dedicated web hosting server, you may create various VPS hosting accounts and resell them to your customers. One dedicated hosting server may accommodate thousands of VPS web hosting accounts, based on the server's architecture. This will permit you to sell a wider assortment of hosting services to your clients, which will present you with more alternatives when popularizing your online storefront. Certainly, utilizing a virtual web hosting server or a dedicated hosting web server for reseller hosting goals is much more expensive than having a standard reseller hosting user account. Hence, this possibility should be examined only on condition that the web hosting reseller has sufficient knowledge and experience demanded to manage a web hosting server, otherwise it's advisable to either sign up for a conventional reseller hosting program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program courtesy of ResellersPanel.com, which requests less involvement from the hosting reseller.
