What is Reseller Hosting?

There are lots of means of generating cash online and one of them is to sell the shared hosting solutions supplied by a specific web hosting supplier. This presents limitless options for everyone who would like to generate extra revenue. There are several sorts of reseller hosting services, based on the reseller's level of commitment and, of course, on the web hosting supplier that offers the web hosting service. Prior to looking into that, let us first check out

What is a reseller hosting solution?

A reseller hosting service is a kind of hosting account, which enables the reseller to set up various sub-accounts that can be resold to different customers. This is generally carried out by granting the user access to a master reseller hosting account, via which he can create different web hosting accounts with the hosting server disk space included in the reseller hosting plan, for which he pays a given tax. This is much like the shared web hosting service and precisely like it, with most reseller hosting programs, a lot of reseller accounts share a single server and are not supplied with full root-level access to the server config files. Such web hosting reseller programs are generally not that expensive. Still, they do hamper the hosting resellers from promoting other forms of web hosting services apart from shared packages.

Various sorts of reseller hosting solutions

Beside the already mentioned method of reseller hosting plans, there are also a few other ways that work just as good. However, they vary with respect to the levels of involvement and the amount of funds that each of them involves. As already stated, the most common mode of selling hosting solutions offers you limited opportunities and you risk losing your investment if things go wrong. Because of this reason, bigger hosting providers such as ResellersPanel.com offer alternative methods of selling web hosting packages without having to pay for anything in advance, or to even cope with the provision of technical and billing support. With their program, the web hosting reseller signs up for free and sets his own retail prices for the web hosting services, which are being offered straight from his online storefront. As billing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel.com's staff, the client does not need to buy the service beforehand. He's merely going to obtain the difference between the retail and the wholesale price as a commission. The hosting reseller also has the option to distribute hosing services such as virtual private servers, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated server. More or less, his job involves advertising the hosting service and offering support to the end users and with hosting corporations that do not require preliminary installments and cope with the invoicing and technical support provision, the only duty left for the reseller will be to popularize his personal brand's online store. Another possibility will be to create different user accounts on a virtual private hosting server, or on a dedicated web hosting server. With most web hosting distributors, you may receive those 2 hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other web hosting CP, already installed on them. That will enable you to set up various shared web hosting plans and exercise complete control over both the clients and the web hosting server itself. In addition, on a dedicated hosting web server, you may create different virtual server hosting accounts and resell them to your customers. One single dedicated server may shelter thousands of virtual web server accounts, depending on the web server's architecture. This will allow you to provide a larger assortment of web hosting solutions to your customers, which will give you more options when advertising your online store. By all means, using a virtual web server or a dedicated web server for reseller hosting goals is much more expensive than using a conventional reseller hosting user account. That's why, this possibility should be examined only in case the reseller has sufficient ability and practice demanded to administer a web hosting server, otherwise it's recommendable to either register for an average reseller hosting program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which requires less dedication from the web hosting reseller.
