What Does Hosting Reseller Represent?

There are lots of ways of making revenue on the web and one of them is to resell the shared hosting solutions furnished by a certain hosting packages provider. This presents infinite opportunities for everyone who would like to make more profit. There are different kinds of hosting reseller services, based on the reseller's level of involvement and, of course, on the web hosting company that offers the hosting service. Prior to looking into that, let us first analyze

What is a hosting reseller solution?

A hosting reseller solution is a type of hosting account, which enables the reseller to create different subaccounts that can be sold to different customers. This is normally achieved by supplying the user with access to a master hosting reseller account, through which he can set up various web hosting accounts with the server disk space provided by the hosting reseller package, for which he pays a certain charge. This is much similar to the shared hosting service and just like it, with the majority of hosting reseller programs, multiple reseller hosting accounts share the very same web server and are not supplied with complete root-level access to the server configuration files. Such hosting reseller programs are normally not that expensive. Still, they do hamper the resellers from providing other types of web hosting solutions apart from shared packages.

Various forms of hosting reseller solutions

Apart from the aforementioned mode of hosting reseller packages, there are also several different setups that work just as fine. Yet, they differ in terms of the degrees of participation and the amount of cash that each of them presupposes. As mentioned, the most popular way of reselling hosting solutions offers you restricted opportunities and you risk forfeiting your capital if things don't work out. Due to this reason, larger hosting suppliers such as ResellersPanel.com provide different ways of reselling hosting plans without having to buy anything beforehand, or to even deal with the provision of client and billing support. With their web hosting reseller program, the hosting reseller signs up free of cost and fixes his very own personal retail prices for the web hosting accounts, which are being sold directly from his online storefront. Because invoicing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel.com's team, the client does not have to pay for the web hosting service in advance. He's just going to obtain the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The reseller also has the possibility to deliver hosing services like VPS hosting, semi-dedicated hosting and dedicated hosting. More or less, his role entails popularizing the hosting service and providing support to the end clients and with companies that do not require preliminary fees and are responsible for the invoicing and customer support provision, the only assignment left for the hosting reseller will be to popularize his personal brand's web store. Another possibility will be to create different accounts on a VPS web server, or on a dedicated server. With the majority of providers, you may receive those two hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other web hosting CP, already installed on them. That will enable you to create different shared web hosting packages and exert absolute control over both the clients and the web server itself. In addition, on a dedicated web server, you may set up different VPS server accounts and offer them to your customers. One single dedicated server may accommodate 1000's of virtual private web server accounts, depending on the server's capacity. This will enable you to provide a greater assortment of hosting solutions to your customers, which will provide you with more alternatives when promoting your web store. Sure enough, using a VPS server or a dedicated hosting web server for hosting reseller aims is much more costly than using an ordinary hosting reseller account. Due to this reason, this alternative should be considered only on condition that the reseller has sufficient ability and training demanded to administer a web server, otherwise it's advisable to either opt for a conventional hosting reseller program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program offered by ResellersPanel.com, which demands less dedication from the reseller.
