What is a reseller hosting service?
A web hosting reseller solution is a kind of web hosting account, which permits the reseller to create different sub-accounts that can be resold to different customers. This is normally accomplished by bestowing the reseller with access to a main reseller web hosting account, through which he can create different hosting accounts using the hosting server disk drive storage space provided by the reseller plan, for which he pays a certain price. This is a lot like the shared web hosting service and exactly like it, with most reseller hosting programs, lots of reseller accounts share one web hosting server and are not provided with full root-level access to the server config files. Such web hosting reseller programs are typically not that high-priced. Yet, they do hinder the hosting resellers from supplying other types of web hosting solutions apart from shared web hosting plans.
Various types of reseller web hosting services
Aside from the abovementioned mode of reseller web hosting plans, there are also several different schemes that work just as good. However, they vary with respect to the levels of involvement and the amount of cash that each of them involves. As already stated, the most common method of selling web hosting solutions offers you limited opportunities and you risk losing your cash if things don't work out. This is the reason why, larger service providers like ResellersPanel offer alternative ways of reselling web hosting plans without the need to purchase anything upfront, or to even become involved in the provision of technical and billing support. With their program, the web hosting reseller signs up free of cost and determines his very own retail prices for the web hosting services, which are being offered straight from his web storefront. Since invoicing transactions are taken care of by Resellers Panel's team, the client does not need to pay for the service in advance. 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 possibility to distribute hosing solutions such as private virtual hosting server plans, semi-dedicated hosting server plans and dedicated web server plans. More or less, his job comes down to promoting the service and providing support to the end clients and with web hosting companies that do not demand preliminary charges and handle the invoicing and client support provision, the only duty left for the hosting reseller will be to popularize his private brand's web store. Another alternative will be to set up different user accounts on a VPS hosting server, or on a dedicated hosting web server. With the majority of companies, you may receive those two hosting hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different Control Panel, already installed on them. That will permit you to create various shared web hosting accounts and have absolute control over both the users and the web server itself. Furthermore, on a dedicated hosting server, you may create separate virtual private web server hosting accounts and sell them to your clients. One dedicated server may accommodate 1000's of private virtual web server hosting accounts, based on the server's capacity. This will allow you to sell a greater variety of web hosting services to your customers, which will provide you with more alternatives when advertising your online store. Certainly, using a virtual private hosting server or a dedicated hosting web server for web hosting reseller objectives is much more costly than using a conventional reseller hosting user account. So, this possibility should be considered only on condition that the reseller has enough ability and experience needed to administer a server, otherwise it's advisable to either register for a normal reseller hosting program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program courtesy of ResellersPanel.com, which requests less participation from the hosting reseller.
