What Exactly is Reseller Web Hosting?

A reseller web hosting service is an opportunity for the ordinary web user to earn cash on the web by reselling the hosting server disk drive storage space provided by a specific web hosting firm. Most frequently, the hosting vendors provide private label reseller web hosting services, which suggests that the resellers resell the web hosting plans on behalf of their very own personal brand name. How it is all made feasible and what the separate sorts of reseller web hosting accounts are, you will explore in this article.

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

The way in which reseller web hosting performs depends on the tactic of the web hosting corporation, which offers the hosting service. The most widespread type of reseller web hosting account is the cPanel/WHM one. With it, you allot the content storage space, which your reseller account includes, between your customers using the Web Host Manager CP. With it, you may create different web hosting plans and cPanel hosting user accounts for your clients. With such a hosting program, the reseller needs to deal with the invoicing and customer support provision. Nevertheless, this too is dependent on the strategy of the hosting firm. A different kind of reseller web hosting solution is the Free Reseller Program offered by ResellersPanel.com. With it, you specify your own retail prices for the offered web hosting services, and for each sale that you close, the chaps from ResellersPanel.com will give you a commission, which is in fact the difference between the retail and the wholesale prices. With this reseller web hosting solution, ResellersPanel.com provides client support to the end users, which may be quite handy if you do not want to be completely immersed in the reseller web hosting business. Sure enough, there might be various variants, but in most occasions, you pay a monthly fee for a given hosting server hard disk space, which you need to deal out among your clients.

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

The normal reseller web hosting solution merely permits the users to offer shared accounts. That's only because most reseller web hosting accounts are in fact shared web hosting accounts, which comprise more features. Just as with a shared hosting web server, the majority of hosting service providers offering a cPanel/WHM reseller solution accommodate multiple reseller web hosting user accounts using the same hosting server. This is why, the resellers are not given root-level access to the server config files, which indicates that the only hosting solution that they may provide are shared web hosting plans. This, though, applies solely to the cPanel/WHM-driven reseller web hosting solutions and once again, it is dependent on the tactic that the web hosting supplier has embraced toward these solutions. If the reseller has more resources, he can provide diverse solutions such as VPS hosting plans or dedicated hosting plans on behalf of his own private brand name and make more individuals interested in the services that he has to offer. By all means, this will suggest that the reseller will need to deal with the technical support provision, because no web hosting solutions provider will want to offer client support to the end clients of such a solution. Another way to offer more than just average shared web hosting plans is to sign up with the abovementioned Free Reseller Program, which ResellersPanel.com has developed. With it, the users are able to offer VPS hosting plans, semi-dedicated hosting plans and dedicated hosting plans, along with shared web hosting accounts, without having to purchase any of the services beforehand. This is the simplest and safest way to resell web hosting plans over the web, since it requires no upfront fees and you don't have to be technically accomplished, since you won't get involved in providing technical and billing support. Depending on the web hosting service provider's tactic, there might be different extra solutions, which the web hosting reseller may provide, like domain registrations, SSLs, domain ID protection services, and so on. Thus, before registering for anything, one should first ascertain what precisely the reseller web hosting account of the specific hosting accounts provider has to offer.

"Which hosting vendor should I pick?"

There is quite an easy response to that enquiry. When selecting a web hosting plan, it's invariably preferable to go with an experienced hosting vendor, which has been doing business for several years, and which distributes web hosting plans worldwide. Such web hosting corporations can be easily identified by the manner in which they are delivering their website hosting services. An established web hosting solutions provider will not only offer well-balanced web hosting and reseller web hosting plans, but it will also provide functionalities that are only theirs and that separate them from all the other hosting distributors. For instance, ResellersPanel.com has not only invented a unique reseller web hosting program where you don't have to pay in order to resell their solutions, but ResellersPanel.com has also invented its own personal web hosting Control Panel. The quality of the team that works for a specific web hosting vendor is quite crucial and has an immense influence on the quality of the hosting services that are being distributed, whereas custom-developed features are an indication that the hosting provider has skilled, experienced web developers. The quality of the hosting service makes a difference when you're signing up for a reseller web hosting account. It's much easier to relocate one web site than to move several client accounts, if you ever consider it mandatory to substitute the reseller web hosting firm. Hence, one should choose cautiously prior to placing their confidence in a particular company.
