How Reseller Hosting Functions

There are many ways of earning revenue on the web and one of them is to sell the web hosting solutions provided by a specific provider. This offers boundless options for everybody who would like to make supplementary cash. There are several types of reseller hosting solutions, based on the hosting reseller's level of responsibility and, of course, on the web hosting supplier that provides the hosting service. Before looking into that, let's first explore

What is a reseller hosting solution?

A reseller hosting service is a kind of web hosting user account, which allows the reseller to create different subaccounts that can be resold to various clients. This is usually achieved by granting the reseller access to a master reseller hosting account, via which he can create different web hosting accounts using the web server disk space provided by the reseller hosting plan, for which he pays a given tax. This is much like the shared web hosting service and exactly like it, with the majority of reseller hosting programs, a lot of hosting reseller accounts share a single hosting server and are not bestowed with root-level access to the web server configuration files. Such web hosting reseller programs are generally not that high-priced. Yet, they do restrain the web hosting resellers from distributing other kinds of hosting solutions beside shared hosting plans.

Various kinds of reseller hosting services

Apart from the abovementioned mode of reseller hosting plans, there are also a few other schemes that work just as good. Still, they contrast with respect to the degrees of commitment and the budget amount that each one of them involves. As mentioned above, the most popular method of reselling web hosting solutions gives you restricted options and you risk forfeiting your capital if things don't work out. Because of this reason, bigger companies such as ResellersPanel.com provide alternative methods of reselling hosting plans without having to purchase anything in advance, or to even be involved in the provision of client and billing support. With their reseller web hosting program, the web hosting reseller subscribes free of cost and chooses his very own retail prices for the web hosting accounts, which are being sold straight from his web store. Since billing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's personnel, the client does not have to buy the web hosting 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 provide hosing solutions such as VPS hosting packages, semi-dedicated hosting packages and dedicated hosting. More or less, his duty involves popularizing the web hosting service and providing support to the end clients and with service providers that do not demand preliminary payments and are responsible for the billing and technical support provision, the sole assignment left for the web hosting reseller will be to popularize his personal brand's online store. Another option will be to create separate user accounts on a VPS hosting server, or on a dedicated server. With the majority of hosting distributors, you may receive those 2 web hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different hosting Control Panel, already installed on them. That will permit you to create different shared web hosting plans and exert complete authority over both the customers and the server itself. Moreover, on a dedicated hosting web server, you may set up various virtual private web server hosting accounts and resell them to your customers. One single dedicated hosting server may stash thousands of virtual web server hosting accounts, depending on the server's specs. This will enable you to deliver a wider assortment of hosting solutions to your customers, which will offer you more alternatives when popularizing your online storefront. Sure enough, utilizing a VPS hosting server or a dedicated hosting server for reseller hosting purposes is much more expensive than having a standard reseller hosting account. Due to this reason, this possibility should be considered only in case the web hosting reseller has sufficient knowledge and practice necessary to administer a hosting server, otherwise it's recommended to either opt for a standard reseller hosting program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which requests less involvement from the web hosting reseller.
