How Reseller Web Hosting Functions

There are lots of ways of gaining profit on the World Wide Web and one of them is to resell the website hosting solutions furnished by a specific web hosting solutions provider. This offers endless possibilities for everyone who wishes to earn additional profit. There are various types of reseller web hosting solutions, depending on the web hosting reseller's level of responsibility and, of course, on the hosting firm that offers the service. Prior to looking into that, let's first check out

What is a reseller web hosting solution?

A reseller web hosting solution is a kind of hosting user account, which allows the reseller to set up various subaccounts that can be resold to various customers. This is typically carried out by supplying the reseller with access to a main reseller web hosting account, via which he can create various web hosting accounts utilizing the web hosting server disk drive storage space provided by the reseller web hosting package, for which he pays a given fee. This is a lot similar to the shared hosting service and just like it, with most reseller web hosting programs, a lot of hosting reseller accounts share one and the very same web server and do not have complete root access to the web server configuration files. Such web hosting reseller programs are normally not that costly. However, they do impede the web hosting resellers from supplying other kinds of web hosting solutions beside shared web hosting packages.

Different varieties of reseller web hosting services

Apart from the already mentioned method of reseller web hosting accounts, there are also several different setups that work just as good. Still, they vary with respect to the degrees of commitment and the amount of cash that each one of them necessitates. As mentioned, the most popular method of selling hosting solutions gives you restricted options and you risk forfeiting your investment if things don't go well. This is why, bigger web hosts like ResellersPanel.com provide alternative modes of selling hosting accounts without the need to buy anything upfront, or to even take care of the provision of technical and invoicing support. With their program, the hosting reseller signs up free of cost and determines his own personal retail prices for the web hosting packages, which are being sold straight from his web store. As invoicing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's team, the customer does not need to purchase the hosting service upfront. He's just going to obtain the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price as a commission. The hosting reseller also has the option to distribute hosing solutions like VPS web hosting, semi-dedicated web hosting and dedicated web hosting. More or less, his duty comes down to popularizing the hosting service and providing support to the end users and with companies that do not demand upfront charges and take care of the invoicing and client support provision, the sole assignment left for the reseller will be to advertise his private brand's online storefront. Another alternative will be to set up different accounts on a VPS hosting server, or on a dedicated web hosting server. With most hosting firms, you may receive those 2 hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another hosting Control Panel, pre-installed on them. That will enable you to set up different shared hosting plans and exert complete authority over both the clients and the hosting server itself. Besides, on a dedicated hosting web server, you may set up separate Virtual Private Server web hosting accounts and offer them to your clients. A single dedicated web hosting server may shelter thousands of virtual web hosting server accounts, based on the web server's capacity. This will enable you to offer a larger array of web hosting solutions to your customers, which will offer you more opportunities when promoting your online storefront. By all means, utilizing a VPS or a dedicated web hosting server for reseller web hosting objectives is much more costly than having an ordinary reseller web hosting account. Because of this, this opportunity should be considered only on condition that the web hosting reseller has enough knowledge and training required to manage a web server, otherwise it's advisable to either sign up for a normal reseller web hosting program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program offered by ResellersPanel.com, which requests less participation from the hosting reseller.
