Reseller Web Hosting Description
There are a lot of means of earning profit on the web and one of them is to resell the hosting services supplied by some hosting vendor. This offers immeasurable possibilities for everybody who wants to make more profit. There are several types of reseller web hosting solutions, based on the hosting reseller's level of commitment and, of course, on the web hosting company that provides the web hosting service. Before looking into that, let's first analyze
What is a reseller web hosting service?
A reseller web hosting solution is a sort of web hosting account, which permits the reseller to set up various sub-accounts that can be offered to different customers. This is chiefly achieved by providing the reseller with access to a master reseller web hosting account, through which he can set up separate web hosting accounts with the hosting server storage space offered by the reseller web hosting package, for which he pays a given price. This is much like the shared hosting service and just like it, with the majority of reseller web hosting programs, multiple reseller hosting accounts share a single web server and do not get full root-level access to the server configuration files. Such reseller hosting programs are usually not that costly. Yet, they do hamper the hosting resellers from supplying other kinds of hosting services beside shared hosting packages.
Various varieties of reseller web hosting services
Beside the abovementioned manner of reseller web hosting accounts, there are also a few different setups that work just as good. Yet, they differ in terms of the levels of commitment and the amount of cash that each one of them presupposes. As already stated, the most popular mode of reselling web hosting services gives you limited opportunities and you risk forfeiting your money if things go wrong. This is why, bigger service providers such as ResellersPanel.com provide different ways of selling hosting packages without the need to purchase anything beforehand, or to even deal with the provision of technical and billing support. With their reseller web hosting program, the hosting reseller registers free of charge and fixes his very own personal retail prices for the web hosting packages, which are being sold directly from his web store. As billing transactions are taken care of by ResellersPanel.com's team, the client does not have to purchase the service beforehand. He's simply going to receive the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price as a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the opportunity to sell web hosting solutions like VPS services, semi-dedicated services and dedicated server. More or less, his role involves promoting the hosting service and providing support to the end customers and with web hosting vendors that do not request preliminary taxes and take care of the billing and client support provision, the sole task left for the reseller will be to popularize his personal brand's web store. Another alternative will be to set up different user accounts on a private virtual web hosting server, or on a dedicated web server. With most hosting firms, you may receive those 2 web hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other web hosting CP, pre-installed on them. That will permit you to set up various shared web hosting packages and exercise complete control over both the clients and the hosting server itself. Besides, on a dedicated hosting server, you may create different VPS accounts and sell them to your clients. One single dedicated web hosting server may hold 1000's of private virtual hosting server accounts, depending on the web server's capacity. This will allow you to deliver a more extensive variety of services to your clients, which will provide you with more alternatives when popularizing your web storefront. Surely, using a VPS hosting server or a dedicated hosting web server for reseller web hosting goals is much more costly than utilizing a conventional reseller web hosting user account. Due to this reason, this option should be contemplated only if the hosting reseller has enough knowledge and experience necessary to administer a hosting server, otherwise it's advisable to either opt for a standard reseller web hosting program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which requires less involvement from the reseller.
