Description of Reseller Web Hosting
There are plenty of means of generating revenue on the World Wide Web and one of them is to sell the shared hosting services furnished by some web hosting distributor. This provides limitless possibilities for everyone who wants to make supplementary profit. There are several kinds of reseller web hosting services, depending on the reseller's degree of involvement and, of course, on the hosting distributor that provides the web hosting service. Prior to looking into that, let's first analyze
What is a reseller web hosting solution?
A reseller web hosting solution is a type of hosting account, which enables the user to create various sub-accounts that can be offered to different customers. This is typically accomplished by providing the user with access to a main reseller web hosting account, via which he can set up different web hosting accounts utilizing the web server hard disk space provided by the reseller web hosting plan, for which he pays a given fee. This is much similar to the shared web hosting solution and precisely like it, with the majority of reseller web hosting programs, many web hosting reseller accounts share the very same hosting server and are not bestowed with complete server root access to the web server configuration files. Such reseller hosting programs are usually not that high-priced. Still, they do hinder the resellers from furnishing other sorts of hosting services except shared hosting packages.
Different types of reseller web hosting solutions
Aside from the aforementioned way of reseller web hosting plans, there are also a few other ways that work just as good. Yet, they differ with respect to the degrees of commitment and the amount of funds that each of them necessitates. As mentioned, the most common method of selling hosting services offers you restricted opportunities and you risk forfeiting your funds if things don't work out. For this reason, larger web hosting firms like ResellersPanel.com provide different methods of reselling web hosting accounts without the need to buy anything upfront, or to even be involved in the provision of technical and billing support. With their reseller hosting program, the hosting reseller signs up free of charge and selects his own personal retail prices for the hosting accounts, which are being offered straight from his online store. As billing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's personnel, the client does not have to purchase the hosting service upfront. He's simply going to receive the difference between the retail and the wholesale price as a commission. The hosting reseller also has the possibility to resell web hosting solutions like virtual private servers packages, semi-dedicated server packages and dedicated server. More or less, his role comes down to advertising the hosting service and providing support to the end customers and with web hosting suppliers that do not request preliminary payments and handle the billing and client support provision, the sole assignment left for the web hosting reseller will be to advertise his personal brand's web store. Another possibility will be to create different user accounts on a virtual web server, or on a dedicated hosting web server. With the majority of hosting distributors, you may obtain those two web hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other hosting Control Panel, already installed on them. That will allow you to set up different shared web hosting plans and have complete authority over both the clients and the hosting server itself. Besides, on a dedicated web server, you may set up different private virtual server web hosting accounts and resell them to your clients. One single dedicated web server may shelter thousands of virtual hosting server accounts, depending on the server's configuration. This will allow you to deliver a more extensive assortment of web hosting solutions to your customers, which will give you more possibilities when promoting your online storefront. By all means, using a VPS web server or a dedicated hosting web server for reseller web hosting goals is much more expensive than using a standard reseller web hosting user account. That is the reason why, this alternative should be considered only on condition that the reseller has sufficient understanding and experience demanded to administer a hosting server, otherwise it's recommendable to either sign up for a regular reseller web hosting program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program offered by ResellersPanel.com, which requires less involvement from the web hosting reseller.
