Definition of Hosting Reseller
There are many means of gaining cash online and one of them is to resell the shared hosting solutions provided by some web hosting firm. This provides unlimited options for everyone who wants to generate additional money. There are several types of hosting reseller services, based on the web hosting reseller's degree of participation and, of course, on the web hosting firm that offers the web hosting service. Before going into that, let's first check out
What is a hosting reseller service?
A hosting reseller service is a sort of web hosting user account, which allows the reseller to set up various subaccounts that can be sold to various customers. This is chiefly accomplished by bestowing the reseller with access to a main hosting reseller account, via which he can set up separate hosting accounts with the hard disk storage space offered by the hosting reseller plan, for which he pays a certain fee. This is much like the shared hosting solution and just like it, with the majority of hosting reseller programs, many reseller accounts share one single web server and are not bestowed with complete root-level access to the server configuration files. Such reseller web hosting programs are typically not that high-priced. Still, they do bar the resellers from offering other kinds of web hosting services apart from shared plans.
Different types of hosting reseller solutions
Aside from the already mentioned mode of hosting reseller accounts, there are also several other schemes that work just as good. However, they contrast with respect to the levels of involvement and the budget amount that each of them involves. As mentioned, the most common mode of reselling hosting solutions gives you restricted alternatives and you risk forfeiting your investment if things don't work out. For that reason, larger companies such as ResellersPanel.com offer alternative ways of selling hosting plans without the need to purchase anything in advance, or to even get involved in the provision of technical and invoicing support. With their web hosting reseller program, the web hosting reseller subscribes free of charge and defines his very own personal retail prices for the web hosting accounts, which are being sold directly from his web storefront. As invoicing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's staff, the customer does not need to pay for the web hosting service in advance. He's only going to get the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price as a commission. The reseller also has the chance to offer web hosting services such as VPS hosting, semi-dedicated hosting and dedicated hosting. More or less, his job involves popularizing the hosting service and offering support to the end customers and with web hosts that do not require upfront deposits and handle the invoicing and customer support provision, the sole responsibility left for the reseller will be to popularize his private brand's online storefront. Another option will be to create different accounts on a VPS, or on a dedicated web hosting server. With most providers, you may receive those 2 hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other hosting Control Panel, already installed on them. That will permit you to create different shared web hosting accounts and exert full authority over both the clients and the server itself. Furthermore, on a dedicated server, you may create separate private virtual web hosting server accounts and sell them to your customers. A single dedicated hosting server may host 1000's of private virtual web hosting server accounts, depending on the web server's specifications. This will enable you to provide a greater array of services to your clients, which will furnish you with more options when advertising your online storefront. Sure enough, using a virtual private web server or a dedicated hosting web server for hosting reseller goals is much more costly than having an ordinary hosting reseller user account. This is why, this opportunity should be examined only in case the reseller has enough knowledge and practice required to administer a hosting server, otherwise it's recommendable to either opt for a conventional hosting reseller program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which demands less involvement from the hosting reseller.
