Reseller Hosting Unveiled

There are a lot of ways of gaining cash on the web and one of them is to sell the shared hosting services provided by some hosting accounts provider. This provides vast opportunities for everyone who wishes to earn supplementary money. There are several varieties of reseller hosting solutions, based on the hosting reseller's level of commitment and, of course, on the web hosting corporation that provides the hosting service. Before looking into that, let us first explore

What is a reseller hosting solution?

A reseller hosting solution is a sort of web hosting user account, which permits the user to set up separate subaccounts that can be sold to different clients. This is normally achieved by offering the reseller access to a master reseller hosting account, through which he can set up different web hosting accounts availing of the disk drive space offered by the reseller hosting package, for which he pays a certain price. This is much similar to the shared hosting solution and precisely like it, with most reseller hosting programs, numerous reseller web hosting accounts share the same web hosting server and are not furnished with complete server root access to the server config files. Such web hosting reseller programs are usually not that costly. However, they do bar the resellers from distributing other forms of hosting services apart from shared web hosting plans.

Different sorts of reseller hosting services

Apart from the abovementioned method of reseller hosting accounts, there are also several other ways that work just as fine. However, they differ with respect to the levels of commitment and the budget amount that each of them necessitates. As stated above, the most common way of reselling web hosting solutions gives you restricted options and you risk losing your investment if things don't work out. That is the reason why, bigger web hosting firms like ResellersPanel.com offer alternative ways of reselling web hosting plans without having to pay for anything beforehand, or to even deal with the provision of technical and billing support. With their reseller hosting program, the web hosting reseller signs up free of cost and fixes his very own retail prices for the hosting accounts, which are being offered directly from his web store. Because invoicing transactions are taken care of by ResellersPanel.com's personnel, the user does not need to buy the hosting service in advance. He's simply going to obtain the difference between the retail and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the option to offer web hosting services such as virtual private servers plans, semi-dedicated server plans and dedicated server. More or less, his duty entails promoting the service and providing support to the end users and with hosting service providers that do not require preliminary fees and handle the billing and client support provision, the sole task left for the web hosting reseller will be to promote his private brand's web store. Another option will be to set up separate user accounts on a private virtual web server, or on a dedicated server. With the majority of service providers, you may get those 2 web hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other web hosting CP, pre-installed on them. That will allow you to set up different shared web hosting accounts and exert full authority over both the users and the web hosting server itself. Also, on a dedicated server, you may create different VPS server hosting accounts and sell them to your clients. One dedicated web hosting server may stash 1000's of virtual server accounts, based on the server's specifications. This will permit you to provide a larger array of services to your customers, which will provide you with more options when advertising your online store. Surely, utilizing a VPS web hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server for reseller hosting goals is much more expensive than using an ordinary reseller hosting account. That is why, this option should be examined only in case the reseller has enough ability and experience necessary to administer a server, otherwise it's recommended to either sign up for an average reseller hosting program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program courtesy of ResellersPanel.com, which demands less dedication from the web hosting reseller.
