There are a lot of ways of making profit online and one of them is to resell the web hosting services provided by some provider. This offers endless options for everyone who wishes to gain extra profit. There are several varieties of hosting reseller solutions, based on the reseller's level of responsibility and, of course, on the web hosting distributor that offers the web hosting service. Prior to going into that, let's first analyze
What is a web hosting reseller solution?
A reseller web hosting solution is a kind of hosting account, which permits the reseller to set up separate subaccounts that can be sold to various customers. This is commonly carried out by bestowing the user with access to a main web hosting reseller account, via which he can set up various hosting accounts using the disk storage space offered by the reseller hosting plan, for which he pays a given charge. This is a lot similar to the shared hosting service and exactly like it, with most web hosting reseller programs, lots of hosting reseller accounts share one and the very same hosting server and do not obtain full root-level access to the web server configuration files. Such reseller hosting programs are usually not that high-priced. However, they do impede the hosting resellers from delivering other sorts of hosting services apart from shared hosting packages.
Various varieties of web hosting reseller solutions
Apart from the abovementioned way of hosting reseller accounts, there are also a few other ways that work just as good. Still, they differ with respect to the levels of commitment and the amount of money that each one of them necessitates. As already mentioned, the most common method of reselling hosting services gives you restricted opportunities and you risk losing your funds if things don't work out. For this reason, bigger hosting service providers like ResellersPanel.com provide different modes of reselling web hosting packages without the need to pay for anything upfront, or to even take care of the provision of customer and invoicing support. With their reseller hosting program, the web hosting reseller registers for free and defines his own retail prices for the hosting plans, which are being sold straight from his web store. As billing transactions are taken care of by ResellersPanel's personnel, the user does not need to pay for the service upfront. He's only going to receive the difference between the retail and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The hosting reseller also has the opportunity to deliver hosing solutions like virtual hosting servers, semi-dedicated hosting plans and dedicated hosting server packages. More or less, his role comes down to advertising the service and offering support to the end clients and with hosting corporations that do not demand preliminary deposits and handle the billing and customer support provision, the only responsibility left for the reseller will be to popularize his personal brand's web store. Another possibility will be to set up different user accounts on a VPS server, or on a dedicated server. With the majority of hosting distributors, you may obtain those two hosting hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another web hosting CP, pre-installed on them. That will allow you to set up various shared web hosting plans and exert absolute authority over both the clients and the web hosting server itself. What is more, on a dedicated web hosting server, you may create different virtual hosting server accounts and offer them to your customers. One single dedicated server may hold 1000's of private virtual web server hosting accounts, based on the server's specs. This will enable you to sell a wider variety of hosting services to your clients, which will give you more opportunities when advertising your web storefront. By all means, utilizing a virtual web server or a dedicated web hosting server for hosting reseller aims is much more expensive than having an ordinary reseller web hosting user account. Because of this reason, this option should be examined only on condition that the web hosting reseller has enough understanding and practice required to handle a hosting server, otherwise it's advisable to either sign up for a normal reseller web hosting program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel, which requires less commitment from the hosting reseller.
