Web Hosting Reseller Definition
There are a lot of means of making revenue on the Internet and one of them is to sell the shared web hosting solutions provided by a given hosting accounts provider. This offers boundless possibilities for everyone who desires to generate more profit. There are various kinds of web hosting reseller solutions, based on the reseller's degree of responsibility and, of course, on the hosting supplier that offers the 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 web hosting account, which allows the reseller to set up different sub-accounts that can be sold to different customers. This is typically achieved by providing the user with access to a master web hosting reseller account, through which he can set up various web hosting accounts availing of the server hard drive space provided by the web hosting reseller plan, for which he pays a certain tax. This is much like the shared web hosting service and precisely like it, with most web hosting reseller programs, a lot of web hosting reseller accounts share the same web hosting server and do not have complete root access to the server configuration files. Such reseller programs are typically not that expensive. Yet, they do impede the web hosting resellers from offering other types of hosting solutions except shared web hosting plans.
Different varieties of web hosting reseller solutions
Beside the already mentioned method of web hosting reseller plans, there are also a few different setups that work just as good. Yet, they contrast with respect to the levels of commitment and the budget amount that each of them demands. As stated above, the most common method of reselling hosting services gives you restricted possibilities and you risk losing your money if things don't work out. Because of this, bigger web hosting vendors like ResellersPanel.com offer alternative ways of reselling hosting packages without the need to purchase anything beforehand, or to even become involved in the provision of client and billing support. With their reseller web hosting program, the reseller subscribes free of charge and names his very own personal retail prices for the web hosting services, which are being offered directly from his online storefront. Because invoicing transactions are taken care of by ResellersPanel.com's personnel, the customer does not have to purchase the web hosting service beforehand. He's merely going to receive the difference between the retail and the wholesale price as a commission. The hosting reseller also has the opportunity to supply hosing services such as VPS web hosting, semi-dedicated server web hosting and dedicated server web hosting. More or less, his duty involves promoting the service and providing support to the end customers and with web hosting distributors that do not request preliminary charges and tackle the billing and customer support provision, the sole assignment left for the web hosting reseller will be to popularize his personal brand's web store. Another option will be to set up different user accounts on a virtual server, or on a dedicated web hosting server. With the majority of hosting firms, you may obtain those 2 web hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another hosting Control Panel, pre-installed on them. That will allow you to create different shared hosting plans and have absolute control over both the customers and the web server itself. Moreover, on a dedicated server, you may create different virtual private web server accounts and sell them to your clients. A single dedicated hosting web server may hold thousands of private virtual web hosting server accounts, based on the server's configuration. This will enable you to sell a more extensive array of hosting solutions to your clients, which will give you more alternatives when promoting your web storefront. Certainly, utilizing a VPS or a dedicated web server for web hosting reseller objectives is much more expensive than using an average web hosting reseller account. That is why, this alternative should be contemplated only in case the reseller has sufficient understanding and training demanded to handle a web server, otherwise it's advisable to either sign up for a regular web hosting reseller program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which requires less involvement from the hosting reseller.
