Web Hosting Reseller Uncovered
There are plenty of means of earning cash on the World Wide Web and one of them is to sell the shared hosting services supplied by a specific web hosting packages provider. This provides immeasurable options for everyone who wants to make additional money. There are different kinds of web hosting reseller services, depending on the hosting reseller's degree of participation and, of course, on the hosting vendor that offers the web hosting service. Prior to going into that, let's first examine
What is a web hosting reseller service?
A web hosting reseller service is a kind of web hosting user account, which enables the reseller to create different subaccounts that can be sold to different customers. This is typically accomplished by giving the user access to a main web hosting reseller account, via which he can create various web hosting accounts availing of the hard drive storage space included in the web hosting reseller package, for which he pays a given price. This is a lot like the shared web hosting service and exactly like it, with the majority of web hosting reseller programs, multiple reseller web hosting accounts share one and the same web server and are not furnished with root-level access to the server configuration files. Such reseller hosting programs are normally not that high-priced. Still, they do impede the hosting resellers from furnishing other forms of hosting services aside from shared hosting plans.
Different kinds of web hosting reseller services
Beside the abovementioned manner of web hosting reseller accounts, there are also a few different schemes that work just as good. However, they vary in terms of the levels of involvement and the amount of cash that each of them presupposes. As stated above, the most common method of reselling web hosting services gives you restricted possibilities and you risk forfeiting your cash if things don't go well. This is the reason why, larger web hosting firms such as ResellersPanel.com offer different modes of selling web hosting plans without having to pay for anything upfront, or to even become involved in the provision of customer and billing support. With their hosting reseller program, the reseller signs up free of charge and fixes his very own retail prices for the hosting packages, which are being offered directly from his web storefront. As billing transactions are tackled by ResellersPanel.com's staff, the customer does not have to purchase the service beforehand. He's simply going to obtain the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price as a commission. The reseller also has the opportunity to distribute web hosting solutions such as virtual private servers, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated server. More or less, his job involves popularizing the web hosting service and providing support to the end clients and with hosting service providers that do not require upfront taxes and handle the billing and technical support provision, the only duty left for the reseller will be to advertise his private brand's web store. Another possibility will be to set up separate user accounts on a private virtual hosting server, or on a dedicated hosting server. With the majority of web hosting service providers, you may obtain those two hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another hosting Control Panel, already installed on them. That will permit you to set up various shared hosting packages and have full authority over both the customers and the web server itself. Moreover, on a dedicated server, you may create different virtual private web hosting server accounts and sell them to your clients. One dedicated hosting web server may hold 1000's of virtual hosting server accounts, depending on the server's architecture. This will permit you to sell a greater variety of web hosting solutions to your clients, which will provide you with more possibilities when advertising your online storefront. By all means, using a VPS hosting server or a dedicated hosting server for web hosting reseller purposes is much more costly than using a conventional web hosting reseller account. For this reason, this possibility should be considered only if the hosting reseller has enough ability and experience required to handle a web hosting server, otherwise it's advisable to either opt for a conventional web hosting reseller program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which requires less participation from the web hosting reseller.
