A Description of Reseller Hosting

A reseller web hosting service is an option for the ordinary user to earn cash on the web by selling the hosting server disk drive storage space offered by some hosting vendor. Most commonly, the web hosting service providers provide white label reseller hosting solutions, which signifies that the resellers sell the web hosting packages under their own personal brand. How it is all rendered accomplishable and what the separate sorts of reseller hosting plans are, you will find in this article.

How does reseller web hosting work and what are the various reseller web hosting types?

The way in which reseller hosting performs is determined by the approach of the web hosting corporation, which provides the web hosting service. The most commonly used kind of reseller hosting account is the cPanel/WHM one. With it, you apportion the web server space, which your reseller account offers, between your customers utilizing the Web Host Manager Control Panel. With it, you may create separate web hosting plans and cPanel web hosting accounts for your customers. With such a scheme, the reseller needs to deal with the billing and technical support provision. Nonetheless, this too depends on the tactic of the provider. A separate variety of reseller hosting solution is the Free Reseller Program offered by ResellersPanel. With it, you name your own personal retail prices for the offered services, and for every sale that you close, the folks at ResellersPanel will provide you with a commission, which is essentially the difference between the retail and the wholesale prices. With this reseller web hosting solution, ResellersPanel offers client support to the end users, which may be very convenient if you do not wish to get completely immersed in the reseller hosting business. By all means, there might be different variations, but in most occasions, you pay a monthly tax for a certain hosting server storage space, which you have to split among your customers.

What sorts of hosting services can be offered using a reseller web hosting account?

The normal reseller hosting service solely allows the users to offer shared web hosting accounts. That's plainly because the majority of reseller accounts are actually shared hosting accounts, which sport more features. Just as with a shared server, most hosts offering a cPanel/WHM reseller web hosting program accommodate plenty of reseller web hosting user accounts using one and the very same web server. As a result, the resellers are not supplied with complete root-level access to the server config files, which implies that the sole hosting service that they may offer are shared hosting plans. This, however, is only valid for the cPanel/WHM-based reseller hosting services and again, it depends on the strategy that the hosting corporation has embraced towards those services. If the reseller has a bigger budget, he can provide diverse services like virtual private web server accounts or dedicated server packages under his very own private brand and get more users interested in the web hosting solutions that he has to offer. Surely, this will imply that the reseller will have to deal with the technical support provision, as no web hosting firm will wish to offer customer support to the end users of such a service. Another way to provide more than just regular shared hosting packages is to subscribe with the above-cited Free Reseller Program, which ResellersPanel has set up. With it, the users are able to resell VPS web server hosting packages, semi-dedicated server packages and dedicated hosting server accounts, along with shared web hosting plans, without having to buy any of the hosting services in advance. That's the easiest and most riskless way to resell web hosting plans on the web, since it requires no upfront fees and you don't have to be technically seasoned, since you won't be caught up in providing customer and billing support. Depending on the web hosting corporation's policy, there might be different additional web hosting solutions, which the web hosting reseller may provide, such as domain registrations, Secure Sockets Layer certificates, domain name privacy protection services, and so on. For that reason, before signing up for anything, one should first find out what exactly the reseller hosting account of the concrete hosting supplier is offering.

"Which provider should I opt for?"

There is quite an easy answer to that question. When selecting a website hosting package, it's invariably better to settle on an established web hosting supplier, which has been around for a few years, and which distributes hosting services around the Globe. Such web hosting distributors can be easily spotted by the way in which they are distributing their hosting packages. An established web hosting company will not simply provide well-balanced web hosting and reseller packages, but it will also offer functionalities that are uniquely theirs and that separate them from all the other hosting firms. For example, ResellersPanel has not simply invented a one-of-a-kind reseller program where you don't need to pay in order to sell their services, but ResellersPanel has also designed its own web hosting Control Panel. The quality of the personnel that works for a certain web hosting supplier is quite crucial and has a big impact on the quality of the web hosting services that are being delivered, whereas custom-developed features are a proof that the web hosting packages provider has skilful, practiced web developers. The quality of the service makes a difference when you're signing up for a reseller hosting account. It's much easier to relocate one site than to transfer a few customer accounts, if you ever deem it necessary to substitute the reseller hosting company. This is why, one should select attentively before placing their trust in a given hosting plans provider.
