There are a lot of means of earning revenue on the web and one of them is to resell the web hosting provided by a particular hosting company. This offers countless options for who wishes to make extra money. There are kinds of reseller web hosting services, depending on the hosting reseller's degree of involvement and, of course, on the web hosting company that provides the web hosting service. Prior to looking into that, let's first analyze

What is a reseller web hosting ?

A reseller web hosting solution is a of account, which permits the to create subaccounts that can be sold to various customers. This is typically by providing the user with access to a reseller web hosting account, which he can various hosting accounts utilizing the disk space the reseller web hosting plan, for which he pays fee. This is a lot the shared web hosting service and just like it, with the majority of reseller web hosting programs, numerous reseller accounts share a single web server and are not supplied with full server root access to the server config files. Such reseller web hosting programs are usually not that expensive. However, they do bar the hosting resellers from offering other sorts of web hosting solutions beside shared hosting plans.

Different types of reseller web hosting solutions

Apart from the already mentioned mode of reseller web hosting packages, there are also several different ways that work just as fine. Yet, they contrast with respect to the degrees of participation and the amount of resources that each of them requires. As already mentioned, the most common method of selling web hosting solutions gives you limited opportunities and you risk losing your investment if things go wrong. Due to this reason, bigger web hosting companies such as ResellersPanel.com offer alternative modes of reselling hosting accounts without the need to purchase anything in advance, or to even deal with the provision of technical and billing support. With their hosting reseller program, the hosting reseller signs up for free and designates his own retail prices for the web hosting solutions, which are being sold straight from his online storefront. As invoicing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel.com's personnel, the customer does not need to purchase the service in advance. He's only going to receive the difference between the retail and the wholesale price as a commission. The reseller also has the chance to resell web hosting solutions like VPS hosting packages, semi-dedicated hosting packages and dedicated hosting. More or less, his role involves promoting the web hosting service and providing support to the end users and with web hosting corporations that do not request upfront installments and deal with the invoicing and customer support provision, the only task left for the web hosting reseller will be to promote his private brand's online storefront. Another alternative will be to set up different user accounts on a VPS server, or on a dedicated server. With the majority of hosts, you may get those 2 hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other hosting CP, pre-installed on them. That will enable you to create different shared hosting packages and exert complete authority over both the users and the hosting server itself. Besides, on a dedicated hosting server, you may set up separate private virtual web hosting server accounts and resell them to your customers. One dedicated web hosting server may keep 1000's of VPS server hosting accounts, based on the server's architecture. This will permit you to sell a wider variety of hosting solutions to your clients, which will present you with more alternatives when popularizing your web storefront. Sure enough, utilizing a private virtual web server or a dedicated web server for reseller web hosting objectives is much more costly than utilizing an average reseller web hosting user account. Hence, this possibility should be considered only if the reseller has enough knowledge and experience demanded to manage a web server, otherwise it's advisable to either opt for a standard reseller web hosting program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program provided by ResellersPanel.com, which demands less participation from the reseller.
