Hosting Reseller Disclosed
There are plenty of means of generating revenue online and one of them is to resell the web hosting solutions provided by a particular web hosting company. This presents immense opportunities for everyone who desires to gain supplementary profit. There are several kinds of hosting reseller solutions, based on the reseller's degree of involvement and, of course, on the web hosting supplier that offers the web hosting service. Before going into that, let us first explore
What is a hosting reseller service?
A hosting reseller service is a kind of hosting account, which permits the user to set up separate sub-accounts that can be resold to different clients. This is mostly achieved by giving the reseller access to a master hosting reseller account, through which he can set up different web hosting accounts utilizing the storage space included in the hosting reseller plan, for which he pays a certain price. This is a lot similar to the shared web hosting solution and precisely like it, with most hosting reseller programs, many reseller accounts share one single hosting server and are not given root-level access to the web server configuration files. Such web hosting reseller programs are normally not that expensive. However, they do restrain the resellers from supplying other forms of hosting solutions except shared hosting plans.
Different forms of hosting reseller solutions
Beside the abovementioned way of hosting reseller packages, there are also several other schemes that work just as good. However, they vary in terms of the levels of involvement and the amount of cash that each of them presupposes. As mentioned, the most popular way of selling hosting solutions gives you limited options and you risk losing your cash if things don't go well. That's why, bigger companies such as ResellersPanel.com provide different modes of selling web hosting accounts without having to purchase anything in advance, or to even deal with the provision of customer and invoicing support. With their program, the web hosting reseller signs up free of cost and chooses his very own personal retail prices for the services, which are being sold straight from his web storefront. Because billing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's team, the client does not have to purchase the service upfront. He's simply going to get the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The reseller also has the opportunity to resell web hosting solutions like VPS hosting packages, semi-dedicated hosting packages and dedicated hosting. More or less, his role entails advertising the web hosting service and providing support to the end customers and with web hosts that do not demand preliminary deposits and handle the invoicing and technical support provision, the sole responsibility left for the web hosting reseller will be to promote his private brand's online store. Another possibility will be to set up different accounts on a virtual hosting server, or on a dedicated hosting server. With the majority of hosting corporations, you may receive those two hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different hosting CP, pre-installed on them. That will permit you to create various shared hosting accounts and exert complete authority over both the users and the hosting server itself. Besides, on a dedicated hosting server, you may create different virtual server web hosting accounts and offer them to your clients. A single dedicated web hosting server may store 1000's of Virtual Private Server accounts, based on the web server's configuration. This will permit you to provide a more extensive variety of services to your clients, which will offer you more possibilities when promoting your web store. Surely, utilizing a VPS hosting server or a dedicated hosting server for hosting reseller aims is much more expensive than utilizing a normal hosting reseller account. Because of this reason, this possibility should be examined only in case the web hosting reseller has sufficient knowledge and training necessary to administer a server, otherwise it's recommendable to either opt for a regular hosting reseller program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program offered by ResellersPanel.com, which demands less involvement from the reseller.
