Reseller Hosting Clarified
There are many means of earning cash on the web and one of them is to sell the shared web hosting services supplied by a specific hosting solutions provider. This offers infinite opportunities for everybody who wants to earn additional revenue. There are several kinds of reseller hosting solutions, depending on the web hosting reseller's degree of involvement and, of course, on the web hosting firm that provides the service. Before looking into that, let us first analyze
What is a reseller hosting service?
A reseller hosting service is a type of web hosting user account, which permits the reseller to create separate subaccounts that can be sold to different customers. This is normally accomplished by granting the user access to a master reseller hosting account, through which he can set up different web hosting accounts availing of the web server storage space offered by the reseller hosting plan, for which he pays a certain charge. This is a lot like the shared hosting solution and just like it, with the majority of reseller hosting programs, many web hosting reseller accounts share a single hosting server and do not receive full root access to the web server configuration files. Such hosting reseller programs are generally not that expensive. Yet, they do impede the web hosting resellers from furnishing other kinds of hosting solutions aside from shared hosting plans.
Various kinds of reseller hosting services
Apart from the aforementioned method of reseller hosting packages, there are also a few other setups that work just as fine. Still, they vary in terms of the levels of participation and the amount of funds that each one of them presupposes. As mentioned, the most common method of selling web hosting solutions offers you restricted options and you risk losing your cash if things don't work out. That is why, larger hosting providers such as ResellersPanel.com provide alternative modes of selling hosting accounts without the need to pay for anything beforehand, or to even take care of the provision of client and invoicing support. With their hosting reseller program, the web hosting reseller subscribes for free and determines his own retail prices for the web hosting services, which are being sold straight from his web storefront. Because invoicing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's staff, the reseller does not have to pay for the service upfront. He's only going to obtain the difference between the retail and the wholesale price as a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the possibility to distribute hosing services such as VPS web hosting, semi-dedicated server web hosting and dedicated server web hosting. More or less, his duty comes down to popularizing the service and offering support to the end clients and with web hosting suppliers that do not require upfront installments and deal with the invoicing and client support provision, the only responsibility left for the web hosting reseller will be to popularize his private brand's online store. Another option will be to set up separate user accounts on a virtual web hosting server, or on a dedicated server. With most web hosting firms, you may obtain those 2 web hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another web hosting Control Panel, pre-installed on them. That will permit you to set up different shared hosting plans and have total authority over both the users and the web server itself. Furthermore, on a dedicated hosting web server, you may create various VPS web hosting server accounts and resell them to your customers. One single dedicated hosting server may stash 1000's of VPS web hosting server accounts, based on the web server's capacity. This will enable you to offer a more extensive assortment of hosting services to your clients, which will offer you more options when advertising your web store. By all means, using a private virtual web hosting server or a dedicated hosting web server for reseller hosting goals is much more costly than utilizing a normal reseller hosting account. Due to this reason, this possibility should be considered only on condition that the reseller has sufficient ability and training needed to manage a web hosting server, otherwise it's advisable to either sign up for a conventional reseller hosting program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program offered by ResellersPanel.com, which demands less commitment from the hosting reseller.
