How Web Hosting Reseller Operates

There are many means of gaining profit online and one of them is to resell the shared hosting solutions furnished by some provider. This provides endless possibilities for everybody who wants to generate extra profit. There are different varieties of web hosting reseller solutions, based on the web hosting reseller's degree of commitment and, of course, on the hosting firm that provides the hosting service. Prior to going into that, let us first explore

What is a web hosting reseller solution?

A web hosting reseller solution is a type of hosting account, which permits the reseller to create different subaccounts that can be sold to different clients. This is commonly accomplished by providing the reseller with access to a master web hosting reseller account, via which he can set up separate web hosting accounts using the hosting server hard disk storage space provided by the web hosting reseller plan, for which he pays a given charge. This is a lot like the shared hosting solution and exactly like it, with the majority of web hosting reseller programs, lots of reseller web hosting accounts share the very same hosting server and do not receive root-level access to the web server config files. Such web hosting reseller programs are typically not that costly. Yet, they do hinder the hosting resellers from selling other types of hosting services beside shared packages.

Various kinds of web hosting reseller solutions

Aside from the aforementioned method of web hosting reseller packages, there are also several different setups that work just as fine. Still, they differ in terms of the levels of involvement and the amount of cash that each of them entails. As mentioned, the most popular mode of reselling hosting solutions offers you restricted alternatives and you risk forfeiting your cash if things don't work out. That is why, larger web hosts such as ResellersPanel.com offer different ways of selling web hosting accounts without the need to pay for anything in advance, or to even deal with the provision of client and billing support. With their program, the hosting reseller subscribes for free and fixes his own retail prices for the web hosting packages, which are being offered directly from his online storefront. As billing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's personnel, the customer does not need to purchase the service beforehand. He's merely going to receive the difference between the retail and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the opportunity to sell hosing services such as virtual private servers, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated server. More or less, his duty comes down to promoting the web hosting service and providing support to the end customers and with service providers that do not request upfront taxes and are responsible for the billing and technical support provision, the only task left for the hosting reseller will be to popularize his personal brand's online store. Another possibility will be to create separate accounts on a virtual private hosting server, or on a dedicated hosting web server. With most hosting firms, you may obtain those two hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other hosting Control Panel, already installed on them. That will enable you to set up various shared hosting packages and exercise complete control over both the users and the web hosting server itself. Besides, on a dedicated web hosting server, you may create different private virtual web hosting server accounts and resell them to your clients. One single dedicated server may host 1000's of virtual server web hosting accounts, depending on the server's specifications. This will allow you to provide a bigger variety of services to your customers, which will give you more options when promoting your online store. Of course, using a private virtual server or a dedicated hosting server for web hosting reseller objectives is much more costly than utilizing an ordinary web hosting reseller account. For that reason, this possibility should be examined only if the reseller has enough understanding and training necessary to manage a hosting server, otherwise it's advisable to either sign up for a conventional web hosting reseller program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which requests less dedication from the web hosting reseller.
