How Does Hosting Reseller Operate?

There are lots of ways of earning profit on the Internet and one of them is to sell the hosting services provided by a certain web hosting solutions provider. This presents immense possibilities for everybody who desires to generate supplementary cash. There are various varieties of hosting reseller services, depending on the hosting reseller's degree of involvement and, of course, on the hosting supplier that provides the web hosting service. Prior to going into that, let us first check out

What is a hosting reseller solution?

A hosting reseller service is a kind of web hosting account, which permits the reseller to create different subaccounts that can be offered to various customers. This is usually achieved by offering the user access to a main hosting reseller account, through which he can set up various web hosting accounts using the web storage space included in the hosting reseller plan, for which he pays a given tax. This is a lot similar to the shared hosting solution and exactly like it, with most hosting reseller programs, a lot of hosting reseller accounts share one hosting server and do not get root access to the server config files. Such hosting reseller programs are typically not that costly. However, they do bar the web hosting resellers from supplying other sorts of hosting services except shared hosting plans.

Various types of hosting reseller solutions

Aside from the abovementioned manner of hosting reseller plans, there are also several other ways that work just as good. However, they vary with respect to the levels of participation and the amount of funds that each of them involves. As already stated, the most common way of reselling hosting solutions gives you restricted opportunities and you risk forfeiting your money if things go wrong. For this reason, bigger web hosting providers such as ResellersPanel.com provide different modes of reselling web hosting plans without the need to buy anything in advance, or to even get involved in the provision of technical and invoicing support. With their hosting reseller program, the reseller registers free of charge and fixes his very own retail prices for the hosting packages, which are being offered straight from his web storefront. Since billing transactions are taken care of by ResellersPanel.com's staff, the user does not have to pay for the web hosting service in advance. 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 possibility to deliver web hosting services like VPS services, semi-dedicated services and dedicated server. More or less, his job entails promoting the hosting service and offering support to the end users and with hosting companies that do not demand preliminary deposits and deal with the invoicing and technical support provision, the sole task left for the hosting reseller will be to popularize his personal brand's online store. Another possibility will be to create separate accounts on a private virtual hosting server, or on a dedicated hosting server. With the majority of providers, you may receive those two web hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different web hosting CP, already installed on them. That will enable you to create different shared web hosting accounts and have full control over both the customers and the web server itself. Furthermore, on a dedicated hosting web server, you may set up various VPS accounts and resell them to your customers. One dedicated server may stash thousands of private virtual server web hosting accounts, based on the web server's architecture. This will enable you to provide a greater array of web hosting solutions to your clients, which will furnish you with more possibilities when popularizing your online storefront. By all means, utilizing a virtual web hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server for hosting reseller objectives is much more expensive than using a conventional hosting reseller user account. Because of this reason, this opportunity should be examined only on condition that the web hosting reseller has sufficient understanding and practice demanded to manage a hosting server, otherwise it's recommendable to either sign up for a standard hosting reseller program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which demands less involvement from the web hosting reseller.
