How Does Hosting Reseller Function?

There are a lot of means of generating cash on the web and one of them is to resell the web hosting services offered by a certain web hosting firm. This presents immeasurable possibilities for everybody who wants to gain supplementary money. There are different sorts of hosting reseller services, depending on the web hosting reseller's degree of responsibility and, of course, on the hosting service provider that offers the web hosting service. Before going into that, let us first analyze

What is a hosting reseller service?

A hosting reseller solution is a kind of web hosting account, which allows the user to create separate sub-accounts that can be resold to various customers. This is commonly accomplished by providing the user with access to a main hosting reseller account, through which he can create various hosting accounts using the hosting server storage space provided by the hosting reseller package, for which he pays a given charge. This is a lot similar to the shared hosting service and precisely like it, with most hosting reseller programs, multiple hosting reseller accounts share one single hosting server and are not bestowed with full root-level access to the server config files. Such reseller programs are typically not that costly. Still, they do prevent the web hosting resellers from offering other types of hosting solutions except shared hosting packages.

Different sorts of hosting reseller services

Apart from the aforementioned method of hosting reseller accounts, there are also several other ways that work just as good. However, they contrast in terms of the levels of involvement and the amount of funds that each of them involves. As mentioned above, the most common mode of reselling web hosting services offers you restricted opportunities and you risk losing your funds if things don't go well. That is why, larger service providers like ResellersPanel.com provide alternative methods of selling web hosting plans without the need to pay for anything in advance, or to even be involved in the provision of client and billing support. With their reseller hosting program, the hosting reseller signs up free of cost and determines his very own retail prices for the web hosting solutions, which are being offered straight from his web storefront. Since billing transactions are taken care of by ResellersPanel.com's staff, the user does not have to purchase the hosting service in advance. He's just going to get the difference between the retail and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The hosting reseller also has the opportunity to deliver web hosting solutions such as VPS hosting plans, semi-dedicated hosting plans and dedicated hosting. More or less, his role involves promoting the web hosting service and offering support to the end clients and with web hosting service providers that do not demand preliminary deposits and take care of the billing and customer support provision, the sole duty left for the hosting reseller will be to promote his personal brand's online store. Another alternative will be to set up different user accounts on a VPS hosting server, or on a dedicated hosting server. With the majority of hosting corporations, you may receive those two hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another hosting CP, already installed on them. That will allow you to create different shared web hosting plans and exercise total control over both the customers and the web hosting server itself. Besides, on a dedicated web hosting server, you may create different virtual hosting server accounts and offer them to your customers. One single dedicated hosting web server may accommodate 1000's of virtual private web server accounts, depending on the server's specs. This will permit you to deliver a bigger array of web hosting services to your customers, which will present you with more opportunities when advertising your online store. By all means, utilizing a private virtual server or a dedicated web server for hosting reseller goals is much more costly than having an average hosting reseller account. Therefore, this alternative should be examined only in case the hosting reseller has enough ability and experience demanded to administer a web server, otherwise it's recommendable to either sign up for a standard hosting reseller program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program offered by ResellersPanel.com, which requests less participation from the hosting reseller.
