Reseller Hosting Description
There are a lot of means of generating money on the web and one of them is to resell the hosting solutions offered by a particular web hosting services provider. This offers immense options for everyone who would like to make extra cash. There are different varieties of reseller hosting solutions, based on the hosting reseller's degree of commitment and, of course, on the hosting corporation that offers the service. Prior to going into that, let's first examine
What is a reseller hosting solution?
A reseller hosting service is a type of web hosting user account, which permits the user to set up separate sub-accounts that can be offered to various clients. This is typically accomplished by offering the user access to a main reseller hosting account, through which he can set up various hosting accounts using the web content storage space offered by the reseller hosting package, for which he pays a certain price. This is much similar to the shared hosting service and exactly like it, with most reseller hosting programs, many web hosting reseller accounts share one and the same hosting server and do not obtain full root-level access to the web server configuration files. Such reseller web hosting programs are typically not that high-priced. Still, they do impede the web hosting resellers from delivering other forms of hosting services beside shared hosting plans.
Various forms of reseller hosting solutions
Apart from the aforementioned manner of reseller hosting accounts, there are also a few other schemes that work just as good. Still, they contrast with respect to the levels of participation and the budget amount that each one of them presupposes. As already stated, the most common method of reselling hosting solutions offers you limited opportunities and you risk losing your money if things go wrong. For this reason, larger companies such as ResellersPanel.com offer alternative methods of reselling hosting accounts without having to pay for anything in advance, or to even be involved in the provision of client and invoicing support. With their reseller web hosting program, the hosting reseller signs up for free and defines his own retail prices for the hosting packages, which are being sold straight from his web store. Since billing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel.com's staff, the user does not need to buy the service in advance. He's merely going to get the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The hosting reseller also has the option to supply web hosting services like VPS services, semi-dedicated services and dedicated server. More or less, his duty involves promoting the service and providing support to the end clients and with hosting distributors that do not request upfront charges and deal with the invoicing and client support provision, the sole task left for the web hosting reseller will be to promote his personal brand's online store. Another possibility will be to create different user accounts on a VPS web server, or on a dedicated hosting server. With the majority of hosting providers, you may receive those two web hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other Control Panel, pre-installed on them. That will enable you to set up various shared hosting plans and exert full control over both the users and the web hosting server itself. What is more, on a dedicated hosting web server, you may create different private virtual server web hosting accounts and resell them to your customers. One dedicated web hosting server may host 1000's of virtual hosting server accounts, based on the server's specifications. This will allow you to provide a wider variety of services to your clients, which will furnish you with more possibilities when promoting your web storefront. Certainly, utilizing a private virtual hosting server or a dedicated server for reseller hosting aims is much more expensive than having a regular reseller hosting user account. Therefore, this possibility should be considered only if the hosting reseller has enough ability and training needed to handle a web server, otherwise it's advisable to either sign up for a conventional reseller hosting program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which demands less dedication from the hosting reseller.
