Reseller Hosting Description

There are lots of ways of earning money online and one of them is to sell the shared web hosting services provided by a specific company. This provides countless possibilities for everybody who wishes to gain additional profit. There are different types of reseller hosting solutions, based on the reseller's degree of participation and, of course, on the hosting firm that provides the service. Before looking into that, let's first explore

What is a reseller hosting solution?

A reseller hosting solution is a kind of hosting user account, which enables the user to set up various sub-accounts that can be offered to various customers. This is usually achieved by supplying the user with access to a master reseller hosting account, through which he can create separate hosting accounts using the server disk space included in the reseller hosting package, for which he pays a certain charge. This is a lot similar to the shared hosting service and precisely like it, with the majority of reseller hosting programs, a lot of reseller hosting accounts share one single web server and are not bestowed with complete root-level access to the web server configuration files. Such web hosting reseller programs are usually not that expensive. Still, they do hamper the resellers from offering other sorts of web hosting services aside from shared web hosting plans.

Various kinds of reseller hosting solutions

Aside from the abovementioned mode of reseller hosting packages, there are also a few other ways that work just as fine. However, they differ with respect to the degrees of involvement and the amount of money that each of them requires. As mentioned above, the most popular method of selling web hosting services offers you restricted possibilities and you risk losing your money if things go wrong. That is the reason why, larger hosting companies like ResellersPanel.com offer alternative ways of selling web hosting accounts without having to purchase anything in advance, or to even become involved in the provision of customer and invoicing support. With their program, the reseller registers free of charge and fixes his very own retail prices for the services, which are being offered directly from his web store. Since invoicing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's staff, the reseller does not have to purchase the hosting service in advance. He's only going to get the difference between the retail and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The reseller also has the opportunity to distribute web hosting solutions such as VPS web hosting, semi-dedicated server web hosting and dedicated server web hosting. More or less, his duty involves popularizing the service and providing support to the end users and with hosting distributors that do not demand upfront charges and deal with the billing and customer support provision, the sole duty left for the reseller will be to promote his private brand's online store. Another possibility will be to create separate user accounts on a virtual private web hosting server, or on a dedicated hosting server. With the majority of web hosting firms, you may obtain those 2 web hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other hosting Control Panel, already installed on them. That will enable you to set up different shared hosting packages and have absolute authority over both the customers and the web hosting server itself. Additionally, on a dedicated hosting web server, you may set up various virtual web server accounts and offer them to your customers. One single dedicated hosting web server may hold thousands of VPS server web hosting accounts, based on the web server's configuration. This will enable you to deliver a greater assortment of hosting services to your clients, which will give you more options when promoting your online store. Of course, utilizing a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated web server for reseller hosting aims is much more expensive than using an average reseller hosting user account. This is why, this possibility should be examined only on condition that the web hosting reseller has sufficient knowledge and training necessary to manage a web server, otherwise it's advisable to either register for a normal reseller hosting program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program offered by ResellersPanel.com, which requires less commitment from the hosting reseller.
