What In Fact is Hosting Reseller?
There are lots of ways of earning money on the web and one of them is to sell the shared hosting services provided by a specific web hosting distributor. This provides infinite possibilities for everyone who would like to gain more cash. There are several kinds of hosting reseller solutions, based on the web hosting reseller's degree of involvement and, of course, on the web hosting firm that offers the service. Prior to looking into that, let's first discuss
What is a hosting reseller service?
A hosting reseller service is a sort of hosting user account, which permits the user to set up different sub-accounts that can be sold to different customers. This is usually carried out by bestowing the reseller with access to a main hosting reseller account, via which he can create separate hosting accounts with the web server disk space provided by the hosting reseller package, for which he pays a certain charge. This is much like the shared web hosting solution and precisely like it, with the majority of hosting reseller programs, numerous reseller web hosting accounts share the very same server and are not furnished with root-level access to the server configuration files. Such reseller programs are usually not that high-priced. Yet, they do deter the web hosting resellers from reselling other kinds of web hosting services aside from shared web hosting packages.
Various varieties of hosting reseller services
Aside from the abovementioned way of hosting reseller accounts, there are also several different ways that work just as good. However, they contrast with respect to the degrees of involvement and the budget amount that each one of them involves. As already mentioned, the most popular method of selling web hosting services gives you restricted alternatives and you risk losing your investment if things go wrong. That's why, larger web hosting distributors such as ResellersPanel.com provide alternative modes of reselling hosting accounts without having to pay for anything beforehand, or to even get involved in the provision of customer and invoicing support. With their web hosting reseller program, the reseller subscribes free of cost and selects his very own personal retail prices for the services, which are being sold directly from his web store. As invoicing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel.com's team, the reseller does not need to purchase the service upfront. He's only going to receive the difference between the retail and the wholesale price as a commission. The reseller also has the option to distribute hosing services such as virtual private servers plans, semi-dedicated server plans and dedicated server. More or less, his duty comes down to promoting the hosting service and providing support to the end users and with hosting firms that do not request preliminary deposits and deal with the invoicing and technical support provision, the sole responsibility left for the hosting reseller will be to promote his private brand's web storefront. Another option will be to set up different user accounts on a private virtual web hosting server, or on a dedicated web server. With most hosting firms, you may receive those 2 web hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different hosting CP, already installed on them. That will allow you to create various shared web hosting packages and exert full authority over both the customers and the hosting server itself. In addition, on a dedicated server, you may create separate VPS accounts and resell them to your clients. A single dedicated server may accommodate thousands of private virtual server web hosting accounts, based on the web server's specifications. This will enable you to deliver a more extensive array of hosting services to your customers, which will provide you with more alternatives when promoting your web store. Sure enough, using a virtual hosting server or a dedicated web server for hosting reseller aims is much more costly than using an average hosting reseller user account. Due to this reason, this alternative should be contemplated only in case the hosting reseller has sufficient ability and practice required to administer a web hosting server, otherwise it's advisable to either opt for a normal hosting reseller program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program offered by ResellersPanel.com, which demands less dedication from the web hosting reseller.
