What is Reseller Hosting?
There are many ways of gaining money on the web and one of them is to resell the shared hosting solutions furnished by a specific web hosting company. This presents immeasurable opportunities for everybody who wishes to gain extra profit. There are various varieties of reseller hosting services, depending on the web hosting reseller's degree of participation and, of course, on the web hosting service provider that provides the hosting service. Prior to going into that, let's first check out
What is a reseller hosting service?
A reseller hosting service is a kind of web hosting user account, which enables the user to create separate sub-accounts that can be resold to different clients. This is chiefly carried out by offering the reseller access to a master reseller hosting account, via which he can set up various web hosting accounts availing of the web hosting storage space included in the reseller hosting package, for which he pays a given charge. This is much similar to the shared hosting solution and exactly like it, with most reseller hosting programs, numerous web hosting reseller accounts share one server and do not get root access to the web server config files. Such hosting reseller programs are generally not that expensive. Yet, they do prevent the hosting resellers from providing other types of hosting services apart from shared hosting packages.
Different types of reseller hosting services
Aside from the abovementioned method of reseller hosting plans, there are also a few different setups that work just as good. Still, they differ with respect to the levels of participation and the amount of cash that each of them involves. As already mentioned, the most popular method of reselling web hosting solutions offers you restricted alternatives and you risk forfeiting your money if things go wrong. This is the reason why, bigger hosting corporations such as ResellersPanel.com offer different ways of reselling hosting packages without the need to purchase anything beforehand, or to even deal with the provision of client and billing support. With their web hosting reseller program, the hosting reseller subscribes free of charge and fixes his own retail prices for the hosting services, which are being offered directly from his web store. Since invoicing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel.com's personnel, the customer does not have to buy the web hosting service upfront. He's simply going to obtain the difference between the retail and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The reseller also has the chance to supply web hosting solutions like virtual private servers, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated server. More or less, his role involves advertising the service and providing support to the end clients and with companies that do not require preliminary fees and deal with the billing and customer support provision, the sole responsibility left for the hosting reseller will be to advertise his private brand's online storefront. Another alternative will be to create separate accounts on a virtual server, or on a dedicated web server. With the majority of hosting corporations, you may get those 2 hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another hosting Control Panel, already installed on them. That will permit you to set up different shared hosting plans and have absolute control over both the users and the hosting server itself. Additionally, on a dedicated web server, you may set up various VPS hosting accounts and offer them to your clients. A single dedicated web server may shelter thousands of VPS web server accounts, depending on the web server's capacity. This will permit you to sell a wider assortment of services to your clients, which will present you with more possibilities when advertising your online storefront. Certainly, utilizing a VPS web server or a dedicated web server for reseller hosting objectives is much more costly than utilizing a conventional reseller hosting user account. Hence, this opportunity should be examined only on condition that the hosting reseller has sufficient ability and training needed to administer a server, otherwise it's advisable to either sign up for an average reseller hosting program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which demands less dedication from the web hosting reseller.
