How Does Reseller Web Hosting Function?

There are plenty of ways of gaining money on the web and one of them is to sell the shared hosting services provided by a particular web hosting firm. This presents infinite possibilities for everyone who wants to earn more profit. There are several kinds of reseller web hosting services, depending on the web hosting reseller's degree of responsibility and, of course, on the company that offers the service. Prior to going into that, let's first discuss

What is a reseller web hosting solution?

A reseller web hosting service is a kind of web hosting account, which allows the reseller to set up separate subaccounts that can be sold to different customers. This is mainly achieved by bestowing the user with access to a main reseller web hosting account, through which he can set up various hosting accounts using the web server disk drive storage space offered by the reseller web hosting package, for which he pays a given price. This is much like the shared web hosting service and precisely like it, with the majority of reseller web hosting programs, lots of reseller hosting accounts share a single web hosting server and are not given complete server root access to the web server configuration files. Such reseller programs are normally not that expensive. However, they do bar the hosting resellers from furnishing other sorts of web hosting services aside from shared hosting packages.

Different sorts of reseller web hosting services

Beside the aforementioned method of reseller web hosting packages, there are also a few different ways that work just as fine. However, they vary with respect to the degrees of commitment and the amount of money that each of them demands. As mentioned, the most common mode of selling web hosting solutions gives you restricted possibilities and you risk losing your investment if things don't work out. This is the reason why, bigger hosting service providers like ResellersPanel.com provide alternative methods of reselling web hosting accounts without having to purchase anything upfront, or to even deal with the provision of technical and invoicing support. With their hosting reseller program, the reseller subscribes free of charge and specifies his very own personal retail prices for the hosting services, which are being offered straight from his web storefront. As invoicing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel.com's personnel, the reseller does not need to pay for the web hosting service in advance. He's simply going to get the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The reseller also has the opportunity to provide hosing services such as virtual private servers packages, semi-dedicated server packages and dedicated server. More or less, his role entails advertising the service and providing support to the end clients and with web hosting providers that do not request preliminary charges and handle the invoicing and customer support provision, the only assignment left for the web hosting reseller will be to advertise his personal brand's online storefront. Another possibility will be to create separate user accounts on a virtual web server, or on a dedicated web server. With most web hosting vendors, you may get those 2 hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another Control Panel, already installed on them. That will enable you to create different shared hosting packages and have full control over both the users and the web server itself. Besides, on a dedicated web hosting server, you may set up separate virtual web server accounts and offer them to your clients. One dedicated server may host thousands of Virtual Private Server accounts, based on the server's specifications. This will allow you to offer a bigger assortment of services to your customers, which will give you more opportunities when promoting your online store. Certainly, utilizing a virtual private web server or a dedicated server for reseller web hosting objectives is much more costly than utilizing a standard reseller web hosting user account. That's why, this opportunity should be considered only on condition that the hosting reseller has sufficient knowledge and practice required to administer a server, otherwise it's advisable to either register for a regular reseller web hosting program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which requires less involvement from the hosting reseller.
