What is a reseller hosting service?
A reseller hosting solution is a type of hosting account, which enables the reseller to create various sub-accounts that can be sold to various customers. This is usually carried out by granting the reseller access to a master reseller account, through which he can set up various web hosting accounts availing of the web hosting server disk drive storage space offered by the reseller web hosting package, for which he pays a given tax. This is a lot similar to the shared hosting service and precisely like it, with the majority of hosting reseller programs, lots of reseller hosting accounts share one server and are not provided with root-level access to the server configuration files. Such reseller programs are usually not that high-priced. However, they do impede the web hosting resellers from selling other kinds of hosting solutions apart from shared web hosting plans.
Different kinds of web hosting reseller solutions
Beside the abovementioned way of reseller web hosting packages, there are also several other setups that work just as good. Yet, they contrast in terms of the levels of commitment and the amount of money that each of them entails. As already stated, the most common method of selling web hosting services offers you limited opportunities and you risk forfeiting your money if things don't go well. That is the reason why, larger service providers like Resellers Panel offer alternative modes of selling hosting accounts without having to purchase anything upfront, or to even get involved in the provision of customer and billing support. With their web hosting reseller program, the web hosting reseller subscribes free of charge and designates his own retail prices for the web hosting services, which are being sold straight from his online store. Since billing transactions are taken care of by ResellersPanel.com's staff, the reseller does not have to purchase the service beforehand. He's just going to get the difference between the retail and the wholesale price as a commission. The reseller also has the option to deliver hosing services such as VPS web server plans, semi-dedicated web servers and dedicated web server hosting accounts. More or less, his job entails advertising the web hosting service and offering support to the end users and with web hosting corporations that do not require preliminary fees and deal with the invoicing and client support provision, the only task left for the reseller will be to promote his private brand's web storefront. Another option will be to create separate accounts on a VPS web server, or on a dedicated hosting server. With the majority of hosting firms, you may get those two web hosting web hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different hosting Control Panel, already installed on them. That will allow you to create various shared web hosting packages and have full control over both the customers and the server itself. Furthermore, on a dedicated hosting web server, you may create different Virtual Private Server web hosting accounts and sell them to your customers. One single dedicated web server may hold thousands of virtual private web hosting server accounts, depending on the server's architecture. This will permit you to offer a wider variety of web hosting services to your clients, which will furnish you with more opportunities when advertising your web store. Surely, utilizing a virtual hosting server or a dedicated hosting web server for reseller hosting aims is much more expensive than utilizing a regular reseller hosting user account. Because of this reason, this alternative should be examined only in case the web hosting reseller has enough ability and experience demanded to handle a hosting server, otherwise it's recommended to either opt for a regular hosting reseller program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program offered by ResellersPanel, which demands less dedication from the hosting reseller.
