Definition of Reseller Hosting

There are many means of earning profit online and one of them is to sell the hosting services offered by a certain web hosting provider. This presents immense options for everybody who would like to earn extra money. There are different types of reseller hosting services, based on the web hosting reseller's degree of involvement and, of course, on the web hosting provider that offers the service. Before looking into that, let us first explore

What is a reseller hosting service?

A reseller hosting solution is a sort of hosting user account, which allows the reseller to set up various sub-accounts that can be resold to different clients. This is generally accomplished by giving the user access to a main reseller hosting account, through which he can set up various hosting accounts with the hard drive storage space included in the reseller hosting plan, for which he pays a given tax. This is a lot like the shared hosting solution and exactly like it, with the majority of reseller hosting programs, a lot of web hosting reseller accounts share the same web hosting server and are not supplied with complete root-level access to the server configuration files. Such reseller web hosting programs are typically not that high-priced. Yet, they do hamper the web hosting resellers from distributing other forms of hosting services beside shared web hosting packages.

Various types of reseller hosting solutions

Beside the already mentioned way of reseller hosting plans, there are also a few different schemes that work just as fine. Still, they vary in terms of the degrees of participation and the amount of cash that each one of them entails. As already stated, the most common method of selling web hosting solutions offers you restricted options and you risk losing your investment if things don't go well. Due to this reason, larger hosting corporations like ResellersPanel.com offer alternative ways of reselling hosting accounts without the need to purchase anything beforehand, or to even be involved in the provision of customer and billing support. With their web hosting reseller program, the hosting reseller signs up free of charge and names his own personal retail prices for the hosting accounts, which are being sold straight from his online storefront. As billing transactions are taken care of by ResellersPanel.com's team, the reseller does not need to purchase the hosting service upfront. He's just going to obtain the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The hosting reseller also has the possibility to deliver hosing solutions such as VPS, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated server. More or less, his role comes down to promoting the hosting service and offering support to the end clients and with companies that do not request preliminary fees and handle the billing and client support provision, the sole duty left for the hosting reseller will be to advertise his personal brand's online store. Another possibility will be to create separate user accounts on a VPS server, or on a dedicated web hosting server. With most providers, you may get those two hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other hosting CP, pre-installed on them. That will permit you to set up different shared web hosting packages and have full control over both the customers and the web hosting server itself. What is more, on a dedicated web hosting server, you may set up various private virtual server hosting accounts and resell them to your clients. One single dedicated hosting web server may keep thousands of private virtual hosting server accounts, depending on the web server's capacity. This will enable you to offer a larger array of web hosting services to your clients, which will provide you with more possibilities when popularizing your online storefront. By all means, using a VPS or a dedicated server for reseller hosting objectives is much more costly than utilizing a normal reseller hosting user account. That's why, this option should be examined only if the web hosting reseller has sufficient ability and practice necessary to administer a hosting server, otherwise it's recommendable to either register for a regular reseller hosting program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which requests less participation from the hosting reseller.
