How Does Hosting Reseller Function?

There are lots of means of making revenue on the Internet and one of them is to sell the hosting services provided by some hosting company. This offers unlimited possibilities for everybody who wishes to generate supplementary cash. There are several sorts of hosting reseller solutions, depending on the hosting reseller's degree of commitment and, of course, on the hosting provider that provides the service. Before going into that, let us first discuss

What is a hosting reseller solution?

A hosting reseller solution is a type of web hosting account, which permits the reseller to create separate sub-accounts that can be sold to various customers. This is normally carried out by offering the reseller access to a master hosting reseller account, via which he can set up separate web hosting accounts utilizing the content storage space offered by the hosting reseller package, for which he pays a given price. This is much similar to the shared hosting service and precisely like it, with most hosting reseller programs, multiple reseller hosting accounts share a single web server and are not furnished with full root-level access to the web server configuration files. Such hosting reseller programs are generally not that expensive. However, they do prevent the resellers from delivering other types of web hosting services apart from shared hosting packages.

Various kinds of hosting reseller services

Aside from the abovementioned manner of hosting reseller packages, there are also several other ways that work just as good. However, they differ in terms of the degrees of involvement and the amount of cash that each of them demands. As already mentioned, the most popular method of reselling web hosting solutions offers you restricted alternatives and you risk forfeiting your capital if things don't work out. That's why, bigger service providers like ResellersPanel.com provide alternative methods of selling web hosting accounts without the need to pay for anything upfront, or to even be responsible for the provision of client and invoicing support. With their web hosting reseller program, the reseller registers for free and puts his own personal retail prices for the hosting packages, which are being sold directly from his web store. Since invoicing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's team, the reseller does not have to purchase the hosting service in advance. He's just going to get the difference between the retail and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The reseller also has the option to sell web hosting solutions like VPS services, semi-dedicated services and dedicated server. More or less, his role entails promoting the service and offering support to the end clients and with web hosting corporations that do not require upfront deposits and cope with the billing and client support provision, the sole task left for the hosting reseller will be to promote his private brand's online store. Another possibility will be to create separate user accounts on a virtual private hosting server, or on a dedicated hosting web server. With most web hosting providers, you may obtain those two hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another CP, pre-installed on them. That will allow you to set up different shared web hosting plans and have complete control over both the clients and the web server itself. Moreover, on a dedicated server, you may set up separate VPS server accounts and resell them to your customers. One single dedicated hosting web server may stash thousands of virtual server accounts, based on the server's capacity. This will enable you to provide a greater assortment of web hosting solutions to your customers, which will offer you more opportunities when popularizing your web storefront. By all means, using a private virtual server or a dedicated hosting web server for hosting reseller objectives is much more expensive than having a regular hosting reseller user account. This is why, this opportunity should be contemplated only on condition that the reseller has enough knowledge and training demanded to handle a server, otherwise it's recommendable to either opt for a conventional hosting reseller program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program courtesy of ResellersPanel.com, which requests less commitment from the hosting reseller.
