What is Reseller Hosting?
There are many means of earning revenue on the web and one of them is to resell the hosting solutions furnished by a particular hosting provider. This presents endless opportunities for everybody who wishes to make extra revenue. There are several sorts of reseller hosting services, based on the web hosting reseller's degree of commitment and, of course, on the hosting service provider that provides the hosting service. Before looking into that, let us first discuss
What is a reseller hosting service?
A reseller hosting service is a type of hosting user account, which permits the user to create separate sub-accounts that can be resold to different clients. This is mostly accomplished by giving the reseller access to a master reseller hosting account, via which he can create separate hosting accounts using the server hard drive storage space provided by the reseller hosting plan, for which he pays a given price. This is much like the shared hosting solution and exactly like it, with most reseller hosting programs, numerous reseller web hosting accounts share a single hosting server and do not receive full root access to the web server config files. Such reseller programs are usually not that high-priced. Yet, they do bar the hosting resellers from reselling other kinds of hosting solutions except shared hosting packages.
Various sorts of reseller hosting solutions
Beside the abovementioned way of reseller hosting accounts, there are also a few other schemes that work just as good. Still, they vary in terms of the levels of participation and the amount of money that each of them demands. As stated above, the most popular mode of selling web hosting solutions offers you limited opportunities and you risk losing your cash if things don't work out. Because of this, bigger web hosting distributors like ResellersPanel.com offer different modes of selling hosting accounts without the need to purchase anything in advance, or to even take care of the provision of customer and billing support. With their reseller hosting program, the web hosting reseller signs up free of cost and chooses his own retail prices for the hosting plans, which are being offered directly from his web storefront. Since billing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's personnel, the reseller does not have to buy the web hosting service upfront. He's just going to receive the difference between the retail and the wholesale price as a commission. The reseller also has the opportunity to supply hosing services such as VPS plans, semi-dedicated plans and dedicated server. More or less, his role entails popularizing the service and providing support to the end customers and with web hosting corporations that do not request preliminary installments and cope with the invoicing and customer support provision, the only task left for the hosting reseller will be to popularize his personal brand's online store. Another possibility will be to create different user accounts on a Virtual Private Server, or on a dedicated web hosting server. With most hosting vendors, you may receive those two hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different Control Panel, pre-installed on them. That will enable you to create different shared hosting plans and have absolute authority over both the users and the hosting server itself. Besides, on a dedicated server, you may create various private virtual server web hosting accounts and offer them to your clients. A single dedicated web hosting server may store thousands of VPS web server hosting accounts, based on the server's capacity. This will allow you to deliver a more extensive variety of hosting solutions to your clients, which will present you with more possibilities when promoting your online storefront. Certainly, utilizing a virtual hosting server or a dedicated server for reseller hosting aims is much more costly than using a regular reseller hosting user account. So, this option should be examined only if the reseller has enough ability and training necessary to manage a web hosting server, otherwise it's recommended to either sign up for an average reseller hosting program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program courtesy of ResellersPanel.com, which requests less dedication from the reseller.
