How Reseller Hosting Functions

There are many means of earning cash on the World Wide Web and one of them is to sell the website hosting services offered by a specific service provider. This provides immense options for everybody who would like to earn extra cash. There are several kinds of reseller hosting services, based on the hosting reseller's level of involvement and, of course, on the hosting company that offers the hosting service. Prior to looking into that, let's first explore

What is a reseller hosting solution?

A reseller hosting solution is a type of hosting account, which permits the user to create separate subaccounts that can be offered to various customers. This is commonly accomplished by supplying the reseller with access to a master reseller hosting account, through which he can set up different web hosting accounts with the server hard disk space provided by the reseller hosting plan, for which he pays a certain charge. This is much like the shared web hosting solution and precisely like it, with most reseller hosting programs, lots of reseller hosting accounts share a single web server and are not bestowed with complete root access to the web server configuration files. Such hosting reseller programs are normally not that expensive. However, they do hinder the hosting resellers from reselling other kinds of web hosting solutions apart from shared web hosting plans.

Various forms of reseller hosting services

Aside from the abovementioned mode of reseller hosting packages, there are also several other schemes that work just as fine. Still, they contrast with respect to the levels of participation and the budget amount that each one of them presupposes. As mentioned, the most popular mode of reselling web hosting solutions offers you restricted options and you risk forfeiting your capital if things don't go well. Because of this, bigger hosting companies like ResellersPanel.com provide different modes of reselling web hosting packages without the need to buy anything in advance, or to even get involved in the provision of client and billing support. With their program, the reseller signs up free of cost and chooses his very own retail prices for the solutions, which are being sold straight from his web store. Since invoicing transactions are taken care of by ResellersPanel.com's staff, the customer does not have to buy the web hosting service upfront. He's simply going to get the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price as a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the possibility to distribute hosing solutions such as VPS web hosting, semi-dedicated web hosting and dedicated web hosting. More or less, his duty comes down to advertising the hosting service and offering support to the end customers and with hosting vendors that do not demand preliminary fees and are responsible for the invoicing and customer support provision, the only duty left for the hosting reseller will be to promote his personal brand's web store. Another possibility will be to set up different user accounts on a VPS, or on a dedicated web server. With the majority of hosting companies, you may obtain those 2 hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other CP, pre-installed on them. That will allow you to set up different shared web hosting accounts and exercise full authority over both the clients and the web server itself. Also, on a dedicated hosting server, you may set up different virtual web server accounts and offer them to your customers. One dedicated web server may host thousands of Virtual Private Server web hosting accounts, based on the web server's specs. This will enable you to provide a greater assortment of hosting solutions to your customers, which will offer you more options when promoting your online store. Sure enough, utilizing a virtual private web server or a dedicated server for reseller hosting purposes is much more expensive than using a regular reseller hosting account. For that reason, this alternative should be examined only in case the web hosting reseller has sufficient knowledge and experience needed to handle a web server, otherwise it's recommended to either sign up for an average reseller hosting program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program offered by ResellersPanel.com, which demands less involvement from the reseller.
