How Does Web Hosting Reseller Function?

There are lots of ways of gaining money online and one of them is to resell the hosting services offered by a particular web hosting vendor. This offers unlimited options for everyone who desires to gain more money. There are different kinds of web hosting reseller services, based on the web hosting reseller's degree of participation and, of course, on the hosting service provider that provides the hosting service. Prior to going into that, let's first examine

What is a web hosting reseller service?

A web hosting reseller service is a type of hosting user account, which allows the user to create separate subaccounts that can be sold to various clients. This is mainly achieved by granting the user access to a master web hosting reseller account, via which he can set up separate web hosting accounts utilizing the web content space offered by the web hosting reseller plan, for which he pays a given charge. This is much similar to the shared web hosting solution and precisely like it, with most web hosting reseller programs, numerous reseller accounts share the very same hosting server and are not bestowed with root access to the server config files. Such web hosting reseller programs are typically not that high-priced. Still, they do bar the resellers from supplying other types of web hosting solutions beside shared web hosting plans.

Various varieties of web hosting reseller services

Beside the abovementioned method of web hosting reseller packages, there are also a few different schemes that work just as good. Yet, they differ with respect to the degrees of participation and the amount of funds that each of them requires. As mentioned, the most popular method of selling hosting services gives you restricted options and you risk losing your money if things don't go well. That is the reason why, larger web hosting vendors like ResellersPanel.com offer different modes of selling hosting packages without the need to pay for anything beforehand, or to even be responsible for the provision of customer and invoicing support. With their hosting reseller program, the reseller signs up free of cost and designates his very own retail prices for the hosting packages, which are being sold straight from his web store. Because invoicing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel.com's staff, the reseller does not need to buy the web hosting service in advance. He's simply going to get the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price as a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the chance to provide hosing services like VPS, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated server. More or less, his role involves popularizing the service and offering support to the end users and with web hosting distributors that do not request preliminary fees and take care of the billing and customer support provision, the only responsibility left for the web hosting reseller will be to popularize his personal brand's web store. Another possibility will be to set up different accounts on a VPS, or on a dedicated hosting server. With most web hosting distributors, you may get those two web hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another hosting CP, pre-installed on them. That will permit you to set up different shared web hosting plans and have complete control over both the customers and the web hosting server itself. Besides, on a dedicated hosting server, you may create various private virtual web server hosting accounts and offer them to your customers. One single dedicated web server may shelter thousands of virtual hosting server accounts, depending on the server's configuration. This will permit you to sell a greater assortment of hosting solutions to your clients, which will offer you more options when popularizing your web storefront. Certainly, utilizing a private virtual server or a dedicated hosting web server for web hosting reseller objectives is much more expensive than utilizing a normal web hosting reseller user account. That is the reason why, this alternative should be considered only on condition that the reseller has sufficient knowledge and training demanded to handle a web server, otherwise it's recommended to either register for a normal web hosting reseller program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which demands less dedication from the web hosting reseller.
