How Does Reseller Hosting Function?

There are many means of making cash online and one of them is to sell the hosting solutions furnished by a particular hosting distributor. This offers boundless options for everyone who would like to gain extra cash. There are several kinds of reseller hosting solutions, depending on the reseller's degree of responsibility and, of course, on the service provider that offers the service. Before going into that, let's first explore

What is a reseller hosting solution?

A reseller hosting solution is a sort of web hosting user account, which allows the reseller to create different subaccounts that can be sold to different clients. This is mainly carried out by bestowing the reseller with access to a main reseller hosting account, through which he can create various hosting accounts with the hosting server disk storage space provided by the reseller hosting package, for which he pays a certain charge. This is much similar to the shared web hosting solution and exactly like it, with most reseller hosting programs, a lot of reseller web hosting accounts share one and the very same server and are not given full root-level access to the server config files. Such hosting reseller programs are generally not that expensive. However, they do prevent the hosting resellers from supplying other types of web hosting services aside from shared hosting plans.

Different forms of reseller hosting solutions

Aside from the abovementioned mode of reseller hosting accounts, there are also a few other ways that work just as fine. However, they vary with respect to the degrees of participation and the budget amount that each of them presupposes. As mentioned above, the most common way of selling hosting services offers you limited alternatives and you risk forfeiting your investment if things don't work out. Because of this, larger providers such as ResellersPanel.com provide different methods of reselling web hosting packages without having to buy anything in advance, or to even cope with the provision of technical and invoicing support. With their web hosting reseller program, the web hosting reseller signs up free of charge and fixes his own retail prices for the web hosting packages, which are being sold straight from his web store. Because invoicing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's personnel, the customer does not have to purchase the hosting service in advance. He's merely going to obtain the difference between the retail and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the possibility to distribute web hosting services like VPS services, semi-dedicated services and dedicated server. More or less, his job entails promoting the web hosting service and offering support to the end clients and with web hosting service providers that do not require preliminary charges and take care of the invoicing and customer support provision, the sole duty left for the reseller will be to promote his private brand's online storefront. Another option will be to set up separate accounts on a private virtual server, or on a dedicated web server. With most web hosting firms, you may receive those 2 hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another hosting CP, already installed on them. That will allow you to create different shared web hosting packages and exert complete control over both the clients and the web hosting server itself. Moreover, on a dedicated server, you may create various private virtual web server hosting accounts and resell them to your clients. One dedicated server may host 1000's of VPS server hosting accounts, based on the web server's architecture. This will enable you to deliver a larger array of web hosting services to your clients, which will give you more possibilities when popularizing your online store. Surely, utilizing a virtual web hosting server or a dedicated server for reseller hosting objectives is much more costly than using a regular reseller hosting user account. For that reason, this possibility should be contemplated only if the reseller has sufficient ability and experience needed to administer a hosting server, otherwise it's advisable to either register for a normal reseller hosting program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program courtesy of ResellersPanel.com, which requires less commitment from the hosting reseller.
